So last night I was looking around our calls flowing thru our switch
noticed a big spike in calls going to toll free numbers figured out it
was American idol.  I started digging deeper and I noticed that none of
these calls where getting a connected status back from American idol.  I
did some random test to the different numbers and confirmed was never
getting a connection status back.  I also went ahead and tested from an
att / Verizon cell phones and in both cases the cell phone still saying
calling while it was playing back the American idol msg.  so if I'm
reading everything that I have collected correctly American idol is
basically using our resources without having to compensate all the
different carries for the calls.  Anyone else seeing this?
