>Do you still have somebody ask "number please," when you crank your phone?
They phased that out now.
But I do remember it.
"Your number please?"
"One moment please....I'm sorry but that number is busy."
> Tell your phone company it's 2006 not 1950 and get with it.
I did tell them that. They said the switch to my place was the problem. I asked when it was going to upgraded and they said there was no plan to upgrade it in the near future. I wonder what one costs? Maybe I could get my neighbors to chip in and we could buy one?
