In a round about way, what you said has some merit, but if I went to the trouble and expense of reactivating my cell phone, I would not give it to UPS. I found a sticker on the outside of the building earlier today, saying that they couldn't gain access to the building. I called UPS and asked that they would have the driver call either the office or myself when they redelivered tomorrow, but they claimed that the drivers don't have telephones...despite the fact that a few months ago, when one of their drivers simply didn't know how to use the call box, had to turn around and come back for the delivery, they had him call me, so that I could go downstairs and teach him how to use it.

We settle on them delaying this shipment until next week, because there is a notice on the entry that says that is when the call box will be reprogrammed. I simply don't want to have to drive across town to pick it up. There are some other things that I need to order, but I'm postponing that for a few days.

7x64 SP1

Where I live 10 digit dialing has been mandatory for 10 years now, we don't even think twice about it anymore. From the sounds of it we'll be getting a 3rd area code soon too, making it even more hilariously confusing.

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1

Like Stormkitty said, I also have had ten-digit calling in Houston for many years. We have three area codes. When it was first introduced there was a big outcry against it. It didn't take long and people got used to it. == I was born in Atlanta, GA. In the early 1950's, I recall our phone number only having six digits to dial. Also in the 1950's my grandparents who lived way out in the country were on an eight-party line. All of the eight phones would ring different ways. One house might get a two shorts and a long ring. Another might have three longs. All of the eight phones would ring. You knew from the rings whether it was for you or not. As a small kid visiting, I would answer it every time it rang. I couldn't quite understand why all these strangers were talking on "my phone".
