Last Call Redial (*69)

    I changed my plan a couple weeks ago and the confirmation letter I
    received in the mail today says, on the back, among other things:

    "We bill a flat fee of up to $1.25 plus airtime per call for certain per
    call services that may be available, such as calls to 411, last call
    redial (*69), and others."

    *69 does not work here (Richmond, VA), nor has it ever, and as best I know
    it does not work anywhere on VZW's network. Is this a sign of things to
    come?

    well you would think that since we have caller id, that *69 wouldn't work to
    good. I use *67 sometimes when calling out that blocks my number, so if
    someone did a *69 they wouldn't get my number either.

    *69 would seem to be superflous (or is it redundant) on any phone that keeps
    a call history.

    Repetitively redundant.

    Not if the phone was turned off. Then you have no idea who may have
    called you last, if they didn't leave a message.

    If the phone is off, and they didn't leave a message, how would you know
    they called and didn't leave a message? If nobody called, wouldn't it call
    the last person that called you when the phone was on?

    Recall that *67 just blocks delivery of the Caller ID to to the called
    phone. The end switch still gets the info.
    In California SBC (PacBell) landline anyway, *69 works if caller ID was
    received by the called switch, even if *67 has blocked delivery
    of the CID to the called phone. "Unknown" or "out of area" means
    the caller ID information never got through to the end switch due to
    phone network issues; "private" means that delivery to the end phone
    was blocked by the caller. Other "CLASS" features,
    such as selective call rejection and distinctive ringing depend on the
    the end switch getting the caller ID info, even if blocked. Note that
    unlike in some areas, *69 here never reads back the number, so *69 cannot
    be used by the called person to defeat *67 by the caller.
