I don't know how I managed to forget about this. I was trying to get a "good" phone number. I thought about getting one that spelled something, but I always hate trying to dial those. So, I thought I'd get 392-2222, or 754-4444, or 396-9696, or, well, you get the idea. So, I went through the reverse lookup and marked off all of the numbers that were listed. Then, I called a bunch of the others and marked off all of the ones where someone answered or I got voicemail or a machine. I apologized for bothering the people who answered, of course. Armed with a few dozen decent numbers and called the phone company. "Is 392-2222 available?" "No sir, it is not." "OK, how about 754-4444?" "No sir." You know how this went for 25 or more numbers, so I won't list them all. Finally I asked the lady how she supposed it could be that all of these numbers were taken, but when I called them I got a recording saying that the numbers were not in service. That's when she explained to me that most of them were for outgoing calls only. "You're telling me that all of the good numbers are assigned to companies who are only using them for outgoing calls?" "Uh, yeah, it looks that way. 392-1111, 2222, 3333, 4444 and all the rest in the series are all assigned to XXXXX company for outgoing calls only." HOLY CRAP! Who makes these decisions????
