English term or phrase:Call by call
"Call by Call:
This feature lets you add special code numbers, which allows you to access
different service providers you might be subscribed. This way allows you to get
the best fare depending on the type of call you are going to make (e.g. regional
calls, long distance calls etc.). You can recall the access number easily, and put
it before the phone number you want to call by entering the phone number
manually or by accessing the phonebook. The phone has three Call by Call
memory cells in which you can store Call by Call code numbers."
What would be the best French title for this function?
Explanation: I have read the text carefully and it seems to me that you just add an ID code, (01 = service provider A, 02 = service provider B, etc) and the system chooses the best rates offered by that specific provider. So I think that it could basically be just a autodial feature. Like I stated previously, I have never really seen a fonction "Call by Call" and I have worked in telco system management for years. !!!

En partie d'accord avec LucieCote, mais je n'ai pas compris que le système choisira l'opérateur, mais que l'on peut mémoriser les préfixes de différents opérateurs, et puis composer de deux mémoires (de celle pour les préfixes et de celle pour les numéros de téléphone proprement dits) le numéro qu'il faut appeler pour avoir un tarif donné.
Je pense que la phrase "This way allows you to get
the best fare depending on the type of call you are going to make (e.g. regional calls, long distance calls etc.). " explique seulement pourquoi il peut être util de pouvoir accéder à des opérateurs différents.
