  Which I understand.  Customers don't care about standards, they want to be
  lazy and dial 7 digits like the olden days, or 10 digits because they are
  lazy.  Remember when that lady came on the phone to tell you that you did
  it wrong and you needed to "Dial a 1 (one) when calling this number."
  Ahhh, the good ole days.  Now customers just gripe about it and we yield.

  But we can convert their lazy to E.164, and I wish everyone did.

  Do any US DID providers offer full E.164 CallerID?
