Fortunately the company I worked for in the Chicago suburbs (708 area|
code) had one line with a 312 area code. I think the owner kept one
line with a 312 number so that our downtown Chicago customers could
call our suburban offices without paying a metered rate. That single
312 phone number was a lifesaver for the company during the outage.
There was a special term for that line with the out-of-area code.
Does anyone know?
