Quote from: Babybearjs on August 19, 2013, 12:45:52 AMdoes anyone know why pacific bell and mountain bell scrapped their 611 number and went to a toll free #?? (pac-bell and centurylink) it seems that ever since all the CO's went digital that these numbers were lost...what were they thinking?? isint a 3 digit number easier to remember then a toll free number? or is this all a result of the "CELL" phone? (I'd put the guy in a cell for inventing that!) see what happens when people are allowed to run amuck!
Quote from: Brinybay on April 03, 2009, 03:55:44 AMI forgot all about this. I found this old dairy bottle several years ago while scuba diving. I didn't understand at first why only the area code was on there (360 is an area code for part of Western Washington) until somebody told me it was from the days of old crank phones where you told the operator the exchange you wanted. At least that's what I was told, I'm not sure.
