    Generally stated, screen codes are what both the telephone
switching office and the phone itself send and and verify one
another on each phone line.  That is that should you attempt
to use a pay phone on a regular phone line (your's, though
preferably someone else's) it will still ask for money. Also
should you attempt to use your phone on a pay phone line it
will register as a pay phone (or at least some similar screen
code...usually appearing on the line as possible screened line
and in that case it tells the operator not to bill to the line.)
     However these codes can be modified on the phone so as to
appear as something else.  The belief is that the phone company
has a flag on the line to see if it recieves some screen code.
But the screen codes as following including hotels and businesses,
some of which can direct dial with no problem (well on a hotel
an operator will come on the line asking which room to bill to...
pick any number.)  There are also hospitals which will allow
you to bill to a third party without voice verification (a rule
that in parts of New York and all of New Jersey, the AT&T operator
must voice verify all third party calls except from hospitals,
other Long Distance services have done this for a long time.)
    Note that the description of the code is related to the LD
service it belongs to (This list is from AT&T), however the codes
will still be there, just corresponding to something else.  Note
that some screen codes when transfered from one service to another
will vanish and appear as a non-coin/private phone.  This is the
reason for the transferring operator phrase of :

This is the [fill in the blank] operator with a trasnfer call.
Note that the call call can not be billed to the originating

However do to the violent competition between the companies the
younger operators can be convinced to "forget" to announce
themselves as a transfer.
   And now with that background, away we go.........
