[TekTalk] Tektalk Request: Just dial the number

I live in the GTA, where you never quite know if a number is long distance or not. I'm on TekTalk unlimited and every time I get a "please don't dial 1" or other similar message followed by a disconnect, it just serves to annoy me. I can't see any other purpose that it might be serving.

Is it possible for Teksavvy to configure things on your end to just connect the call?

If it didn't protect you from dialing the incorrect number you'd be complaining about that also ....

Complaining about connecting me to a free local number? Don't think so...

I never understood why land lines act this way. Mobile phones connect regardless of whether you dialed long distance or not. They simply throw out a warning about long distance charges possibly applying and completes the call. It would be nice if land lines did this as well.

Bell doesn't connect the call if you dial 1 when it's local, nor does ROGERS LAND LINES... or if you forget to dial the 1 for that fact. Although it would be nice, it really isn't that big of a deal in my view.
