    Oooh! (USA country code) (231) 883-1753. Lol, I wonder if I'll ever get a message or a call. You can send one from http://www.npiwireless.com/mobilemessaging or something like that

    Yes, I believe so, at least that's the code I used to reach blackrat364 with (don't know if he/she has received my SMS though).

    Heh, would be soooooo USA to have the number "1" as their nation code.

    Haven't gotten it yet Zewu. Dialing to a different country might involve a few more numbers... check the phone book.

    Well, I checked the phone book before I sent the SMS, and all I have to do is to begin by dialing a prefix for outside-nation calls (00), and then the code of the requested nation. It has worked to Germany and Bangladesh, so I don't see why it shouldn't to the US.

    This is what I dialed: 0012318831753

    perhaps I shouldn't add that "231", US state code?

    I'll try the same number once again, and then one time exluding the "231"

    Hmmm... here you have to dial a 1 before the area code (231). Maybe it would be

    001 1 231 883 1753

    You'll definitely need the 231 in there though. The US is a big country - seven digit phone numbers don't cut it

    SMS stands for "short message service" It's just a little text message on your phone.

    I tried google, but there were no replacement lifes for download. So I searched the next best source and here it is: your new life.

    ( And yes, US Country code is 001, what else would you expect ? )

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Did they get any bids?
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I don't know, probably. I just heard about it through word-of-mouth though, so it could even be just an urban legend.
