How to keep your cost down
1. If you are using a credit card and want to listen to the entire game, don't hang up during intermissions or halftimes! When you hang up and call back, you start over at the regular 50¢ per minute rate instead of the 20¢ per minute rate that you pay after the 1st hour.
2. If you are going to call often (ie: more than six full games) get a TEAMLINE season ticket. The cost is as low as 15¢ per minute for every minute with no minimum charge so you can call in and hang up without penalty (plus the access to the game is much quicker).
3. Get a group together and listen on a speakerphone or through your stereo system so you can split the cost.
How to use a speakerphone with TEAMLINE
1. Always call in using your hand set. Don't put it on speakerphone until you get connected to the game because noises in your room may keep our equipment from understanding your touchtones.
2. Once you get connected to the game, put the speaker on BEFORE hanging up your handset! Then put the "mute" button ON or turn the "mic" button OFF if you have one. This will deactivate the microphone so noises in the room will not cut off the sound of the game.
3. Finally, if you have call waiting you may hear the tones during the game. Don't panic. Just pick up the handset and take the incoming call by hitting the hook switch or flash button once. When you are finished with the incoming call, just hit the hook switch again and the game will still be there. Then follow step #2 [above] again.
Calling TEAMLINE from outside the United States
From outside the Continental United States and Canada you must dial direct (330-374-6300) to access TEAMLINE. You will pay your own long distance, from the country you are calling from, plus 25¢/minute on your credit card. If your touchtones work, just follow the prompts to go to the game you want. If they don't work, just hold and a live operator will put you through.
