3. Right-click the Socket icon, then click on Properties.

4. Remove the phone number from the Phone Number box and input the local 7-digit phone number for your area. Depending on where you are dialing from, you may have use the full 10-digits, i.e. 5738867300. If in doubt, try to call the 7-digit number from a handset and if that does not work, try to call it with 10-digits. Also, ensure there is not a checkmark next to the Use dialing rules box. When done, click OK at the bottom and close the current window.
