Coming in the future is the fact that with VOIP, you're allowed to have 
a phone number with any area code anywhere ... so you're getting 
situations where people living in Tokyo have NYC area codes, which when 
it gets bigger is going to foobar phone polling like nobody's business.

two telemarketing calls -- from a bot, no less -- from Earthlink at my 
cell phone which has a very unambiguously cell-only area code.
