English term or phrase: dial-around codes
There was considerable confusion over whether dial-around codes beginning with 10-10 were exclusively for direct dial calling or whether they could also be used for collect calling

18 mins

disagree  Patricia Lutteral: son para llamar a larga distancia a través de la compañía X o Y; después marcas el de área, el local, etc.
38 mins

disagree  Jose Arnoldo Rodriguez-Carrington: Código de área would be "Area Code"

códigos de cobro revertido


Explanation:
Tengo entendido, si la memoria no me falla, que "dial-around" es el servicio que se usa para que pague el destinatario de la llamada.

Suerte, Flavio

Dije una simpleza...


Explanation:
Acabo de darme cuenta que mi propuesta anterior es totalmente equivocada. Después encontré una definición de lo que "dial-around code" significa:

"Dial-around" telephone services are blanketing the airwaves and mailboxes urging consumers to use seven-digit access codes before they dial a long-distance number. Some of these companies claim huge savings, anywhere from 10 to 50 percent off long-distance rates. However, many fail to mention that the discounts are gauged against the major phone companies' highest long-distance rates, not the rates you might be paying in discounted calling plans. Also, many of the dial-around services assess fees and monthly access charges that can overwhelm savings you might otherwise enjoy from lower per-minute rates.

***************

Así pues, son aquellos códigos que debes emplear cuando contratas servicios con otras compañías telefónicas para llamadas de larga distancia (como 051 con Retevisión o 1074 con Jazztel, en España, pero los de EE UU, por lo menos según el texto, son de SIETE dígitos!!!)...

¿Entonces qué tal llamarlos "códigos de preselección de operador"?

Suerte, Flavio

PS: perdonen el lapsus!!!

...códigos de selección de portadoras...


Explanation:
Me parece que se trata de la selección de la empresa "portadora" o, en inglés, "carrier"...
