Telephone Woes

TELEPHONE WOES….I got a new phone yesterday that (of course) has Caller ID built in. And like all phones with Caller ID, this one displays the phone number of each person who’s called and allows you to call back selected numbers by just pressing a key.

However, what it doesn’t do is put a 1 in front of long distance numbers, so when you autodial the number all you get is a helpful phone company recording that says, “We’re sorry, you must first dial a 1 when calling this number.”

This feature, therefore, is useless for practically every call I get. Somebody in the Motorola marketing/engineering/QA department screwed up very badly here….
