Hints when using telephone numbers #general


Shana Egan <segan@...>
 

from time to time, questions about phone numbers are asked. Responses
usually send the questioner to different phone directories on the web.
Here are some things to keep in mind once you get the phone number:

Web phone directories don't always have the latest phone number for a
person Some areas of the country have had several area code changes in the
past few years. The base number may be correct, but is the area code?

Sometimes when moving, a person may *take* their phone number with them.
In such a case, the phone number may not seem to *belong* to the area the
person now lives.

Sometimes when an area *ran out of phone numbers* new phones were given
surrounding area phone numbers. Again, the phone number may not seem to
*belong* to the area the person now lives.

I hope this helps someone
