I was 72638,1421, but that was the second time around. I initially had an account sometime account 82/83 with my Vic-20. Racked up a HUGE bill, and got the plug pulled by my folks after a single month. I wish I knew what that original ID was. It took a long time to convince them to allow me to use the phone to call local BBSs after that.

Yes, Verizon gave me a contract without my SSN.
I went to them because AT&T required that I give them my SSN. I challenged them to do the credit check without it, or drop the order. They dropped the order. I guess they don't need my business.
