Is dialing a phone number allowed under this rule?

No. Dialing a mobile telephone while operating a CMV in interstate or intrastate commerce is prohibited by the rule. A driver can initiate, answer or terminate a call by touching a single button on a mobile telephone, earpiece, steering wheel or instrument panel - comparable to using vehicle controls or instrument panel functions, such as the radio or climate control system.
