"We're sorry, the number you have dialed is not accepting calls marked private. To complete a call to this number, you must remove the private status by dialing *82 prior to placing your call."

Just do it...you'll get through....

That's been here in the States (at least CA) for a while...

I'm guessing it allows the recepient to see who it is without having Caller-ID...

I can't do it from outside the US, though.

My dad never calls me (he's called less than five times since I moved to England two years ago), and then complains that I never call, and now I CAN'T call.

Hmm...just a guess...

Try *82 before the 1+area code and after the "country code," etc.

Frank Zappa and Moon Unit released the song "Valley Girl" back in '82.

I was born in '82.

I'd never heard about that phone thing until I started my new job.

I tried it. The number is too long for BT to handle.
