    Wow, I guess random number generation means that you call and give your
    number as one to be randomly generated?

    It helps to not give out your phone number, but many telemarketers
    randomly generate phone numbers. And they have automated dialing
    equipment dial 10 or so numbers, and talk to the first person who answers.

    It's nice to pick up the phone (expecting an important phone call) to
    hear a beep, only for the phone to ring every five minutes for the next
    hour. Oh, yeah, caller id doesn't always work. It all depends on which
    local and long distance companies are compatible with which when the
    information is transmitted. That's why "Out of Area" or "Unknown Call"
    will show up.

    And worse yet, some of my local Doctor Buildings (they have few big
    building with lot of clinics) and even Hospital hide their phone numbers
    and they display "Out Of Area" or "Unknown Number" on my Caller ID.

    Many clinics have to send me letter saying that they can't contact me
    by phone, and I skipped quite afew doctor appointments because of their
    "Out of Area" or "Unknown Number" problem, and switched to other doctors
    etc. And I wonder why they have to hide their numbers (cheaper phone
    bill or what?).

    nice try, you can't randomly make a person's name up. (telemarketers call
    you up by name).

    I think his point is that when a telemarketer calls you, even if you hang
    up on them they are still tying up your phone line until THEY hang up.
    (I've been hearing this for years but have never been convinced that it's
    true; one more thing to ask my friend at SBC.)

  5. I can't believe what a bunch of dip shits post in these new groups. As
    if an organization like the Telemarketrs Assoc of America (TAA) really
    exists. Assuming one did, like someone would bother to go out to a VZW
    news group and plead for sympathy? I gues "gullible" is not in the
    dictionary.

    My theory is proven correct: Even the most absurd and satircal post can
    rile up the clowns that frequent this (and other) forums.

    You idoits are only intereseted in showing people how smart you think
    you are and shooting down others peoples posts.

    BTW - I hate telemarketers and they are the lowest form of bottom
    feeding slime.

    You've all been trolled. Only one person (Veldhouse?) was smart enough
    to figure it out.

    Okay Captain Dip Shit now that you have proven your own point about being

    is one of the few words you did spell correctly. Troll On.

    why should people have to pay for caller id so that they dont have to talk

    Thank god for SBC's "Privacy service" it's stops telemarketers cold. The
    ones that are stupid enough to send their caller ID are dealt with (see
    christmas fund) in fine style. I have sued MANY in small claims court to the
    tune of $500 and one loser for $1500!
    Let the calls roll, get ready to pay up telemarketers, I now welcome your
    calls. Waste my time and you pay for it....Eddie
