Anyone who is interested, I'd like to look into this, so anyone in that can find a Payfone, try this out and see what you get, and we can compare responses. The only non-COCOT payfone is a good distance from here, but perhaps tomorrow I'll go check this out.

AT&T has always been a strange fone company. Its possible you may have gotten a new operator and he/she might not have known that these options may have existed.

BTW, I noticed your memories comment about the Third Person Billing Option, is it safe to say you've either been into Phreaking for awhile or just very old?
