How about the often incorrect ringback tones from the C.O.? Or, the
immediate return to dial tone when the other party suddenly hung up?
(called or calling party, it didn't matter ;-)

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Or how many times have you seen shows
where a cellular phone was involved and the person using the cell
phone heard 'dial tone' when he took the phone 'off hook' to dial a
number. We know there is no such thing as 'dial tone' on a cell
phone. PAT]
