Last Week while waiting for a friend to pick me up, I picked up the phone on a whim and dialed a number that must've been at least 15-20 digits, consisting mostly of 2's and zeros. Strangely I received a dial tone, even more strangely it rang about 20 times before I gave up and hung up the phone.

So it this an error with my telephone, or is it possible to have a phone number that long?

Ans please, if possible include some informative links.

Thank you very much,

BTW, this is my first post.

Welcome to ATS, Sage.

Chances are, that the number you phoned just doesn't exist, or was a number for a telemarketing agency, where they don't answer the phone if you phone back, (To avoid complaints).

That is what I figured. Just didnt think it was possible to have such a long number.

More than likely you dialed a fluke area code/phone number. Check your phone bill from that month and post the phone number. I'll tell you where and who it belongs to.

Would be helpful if you have this info:

-Who is provider
-IP phone (over internet) or POTS line (plain old telephone)
-Was the ring regular... riiiiiiiiingggg......riiiiiiiiingggg, or was it wierd like riing...rinng...rinnnnnngggggg.
-What type of phone (push button, rotary, wireless)

sorry for all the questions, but would help.
