Ughhh, 866 is trying to be the new toll free area code. does no one understand that adding a digit to phone #'s is a far better alternative? California has 25 area codes alone!

Adding a new digit to phone numbers?
Like the meta-3 or the ultra-5?

I think he means using 8 digits instead of 7 for standard phone numbers.

Cripes!
The database work needed to support that will make Y2K look like a walk in the park.

Right. Lots of data base work now, or lots later. How many Area Codes left? Approx time to running out? Exactly. Might as well add 2 digits, come to think of it.

Why don't we just add three now and do away with the area codes?
