At one point we'd discovered that depending on the calling area -- you
could set up call forwarding on regular phone lines and bounce calls
for several hundred miles.

What a treat when we discovered we could also get it into/from Canada.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: The only trouble I see is if the local
phone charges for each of the small hops (when added together for each
hop) saved any money over the single long-haul charge of an interstate
toll from the starting point to the eventual ending point. Long
distance charges are quite inexpensive these days; can you get the
combined (various) local charges down to less? And what about
coordinating the in-between call-forwards? PAT]
