Seems to depend on the l.d. carrier. I dialed 700-555-4141 and
received a, "Your call cannot be completed as dialed ..." message. I
tried 700-555-1212, not expecting it to work, and got, "Thank you for
using Covista."

One would think there would be a standard. Oh, well.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: On my local (620-331) line from
Prairie Stream Communications, dialing it without a '1' first got
me a request to 'dial 1 first, then the area code and number." Doing
it with '1' first got me a message saying 'Thank you for choosing
Quest Communications ... then a pause ... and "your call cannot be
completed as dialed, one-six-one". PAT]
