When Public Toilets Start Calling You in 2000

Comment: 

This report tells of self-diagnosing machines in Great Britain that call wrong numbers. One of them was a public toilet that kept calling a woman every night in the middle of the night.

Now, think: noncompliant chips. Think: noncompliant phone company code.

The noise factor is what scares me about the phone system in 2000. Also, the non-noise factor: dead dial tone.
