[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I will tell you why I think 866 has
become more popular than 877 or 888. The number of 'vanity' words
which can be formed out of 'TUV' followed by 'MNO' is greater than
the number of same formed by 'TUV' followed by 'P(Q)RS'. So many
companies prefer meaningful (to their customers) words than just
numbers. 866 as a starter concluded by 4357 gets you 866 something
help for example. 800 is the most 'popular' of all but it was the
only choice for many years, and the default. VON amd TOM are very
easy combinations to deal with. Where many companies begin with
the area code and then find seven digit vanity words, a few very
lucky companies can make ten-letter vanity words out of the whole
thing: VONAGEHELP is one such example. PAT]
