Additionally, it, "also includes a feature that lets salesmen transmit any phone number or text message to residents' caller ID displays." There are still ways to fight the estimated 19 million calls per day (6.8 billion/year), but passing the out of service tones might not be one of them any longer.

"Rain" posted these tones in a prior discussion.
