If you didn't move far and the number you dial for access is still a local call you don't have to do anything.

Otherwise you need to get a local access number from your ISP. You can go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Dialup Networking and click on Make a new Connection to enter the local number. Your ISP will help with that also. Don't forget to delete your old connection to avoid long distance charges if that applies.

Thanks for response whilst the move was not far my telephone provider has supplied me with a new telephone number, the ISp number has not changed, I need to change my telephone number as part of my profile.

I've never seen a situation where your own telephone number entered into the situation. Are you sure of this? Your ISP doesn't care what your personal phone number is for connection purposes. To change anything in your dialup connection go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Dialup Networking and right click your current connection and select properties.

BTW, just clicking the "Fast Reply" or "Add Reply" button is how to reply unless you are intentionally adding a quote. That is what the "Reply button is for.

Thanks everybody for your responses, when I contacted my ISP they were able to change my telephone number on their records, normal service now resumed.
