You know that if the government wants to regulate 900, or pay-per-call, phone services, they must be good. The possible uses -- ranging from software companies using 900 numbers to bill for customer service, to direct-mail merchants using them to qualify leads -- continue to grow. If you want to learn more about how your business can benefit from 900 numbers, call (900) 463-6839 for a 13-minute message that costs $9.95 and gives you a quick history of the interactive telephone industry. It also automatically puts you on the subscriber list for InfoText magazine -- which is free -- to keep you current on the latest applications, industry trends, upcoming conferences, and books. -- Teri Lammers
