Re: NANP Number Lengths

Quick try of dialing anything 1 09X XXX XXXX Y on a Bell Canada line (with Bell Canada as the long distance carrier) goes to an intercept after a long pause (no ringing at all) "We're sorry, the carrier access code you dialed is not in service."

To parse your numbers another way is 109XX XXX XXX Y, which is what most phone companies probably would, it would be interperted as carrier access code, area code, exchange, and mising 3 more digits. Given the above, I gather that Bell Canada is looking at 1 09X XXX XXXX Y and then timing out waiting for the last 3 digits.

Especially as 10XXXXX is the format for alternative long distance carrier access.
