Ryan, et al -- ...and then Ryan A said... % % Hi guys,
Hi! Your project sounds interesting, but it pretty much won't work for the US -- or at best it would be unworkable. In the US, the area code is three digits, the exchange is three digits, and the number itself is four digits. For years people only needed the exchange and the number (and, in fact, the exchange was based on the city name, so you'd ring the operator and ask for KLondike 5 5555 or PEnnsylvania 6 5000) unless you were calling outside your area code, which was pretty much guaranteed to be a toll call (and some "local" calls were toll as well). More and more now, though, you have to dial the full ten digits because local calling areas are bigger than a million numbers. And all of that goes for cell phones, pagers, and the like as well. While an entire exchange is usually given to a cell provider, it could be one off from a land line provider's exchange or even a different cell provider's exchange. The only shot I'd think could work would be to integrate a caller ID service to just give you the whole number... How's that for saving your surfer's some keystrokes? :-) HTH & HAND :-D -- David T-G * It's easier to fight for one's principles (play) [EMAIL PROTECTED] * than to live up to them. -- fortune cookie (work) [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.justpickone.org/davidtg/ Shpx gur Pbzzhavpngvbaf Qrprapl Npg!
