Sure, they COULD. I'd tell 'em they're full of crap, but they could. :)

You're almost right.

But I don't get billed per-minute for incoming calls on POTS. My
monthly bill does not increase each time I receive another call. It
does on an 800 number, and it uses minutes on a cell phone, which
costs me money if I go over my monthly allotment. - Apple Valley, CA - - 888.480.4NET (4638)
