Mensagem:  Had a thought....

As I indicated in an earlier post, my phone number is 2244-2555.  I don't know of anywhere in the USA where phones have eight digits.  Seven, yes.  Eight, no.  So....how do you give a seven digit phone number?

My old number in  the States was, I believe, 338-0546.  People expect you to say "Three-three-eight, oh-five, four-six."  Note that you are giving three numbers, two numbers, and two numbers again.  Also note that "zero" is usually given as "oh" (as in the letter "O").
