Re: By the numbers.

said by PX Eliezer70:

How should phone numbers be written in the US and Canada?

(311) KLondike 5-2368
Retro

Thoughts?

There is just something so civil to the sound of JUniper-5-1212. I realize it's not going to happen, but next time someone asks you for your number, recite it in this format. You would be surprised at the comments....

The General Telephone System (GTE) companies used to parse their numbers differently:

Instead of KLondike 5-2368 it would be KLondike 52368.

That is, the end would be a group of 5 numbers.

I used to love the old GTE magazine ads.

They would show a picture of Alexander Bell and say:

"He may have invented the telephone but he didn't invent us".
