"PIC" stands for "Presubscribed Interexchange Carrier". A synonym* is "CIC", which stands for "Carrier Identification Code". PIC codes (or CICs) are 7-digit prefixes that identify long distance carriers in North America and the Caribbean to the local exchange carrier (LEC), providing routing instructions for calls from each subscriber. Many subscribers want to use more than one long distance carrier, and they do this by manually entering the CIC before the number they want to dial. This forces the call onto that carrier, superseding the LEC's stored instructions. (NOTE: Not all interexchange (long distance) carriers are accessible to the general public in this way. For some, the subscriber must first contact the carrier and set up an account before the CIC will be enabled for his phone.) About this database The following utility allows you to look up any PIC code and find the carrier associated with it. Note that the first three digits of the PIC (101) are already entered for you, so you just enter the last four to do your search. You may also enter any of the other criteria shown to see a list of matching companies. A partial name string may be used in the Company field to find a company when the full name is not known, and a partial or full string in the ZIP/PC field will constrain a search to a limited geographic area. Note: If you enter a PIC number there is no need to use any other criteria: Your search will already produce only one result.
