Funny thing is, they have to install a pulse dialing module or something for old ladies who have grandfathered plans that dont have the touch tone fee, with old rotary phones.
Bell's digital switches support rotary dialing without adding additional equipment. At one time, Bell's old mechanical switches didn't support touch tone, so they used converters.
Oh.. I remember someone posted info here that said that Bell had to install some sort of pulse dialing converter on the new digital switches, for the old grandfathered accounts. Perhaps he was incorrect.
So if you're right, I can just switch my phone to pulse dial and it will work? or is it disabled by default for everyone but those people that are on pulse only?--
