not quite the same, but when i was recently in brazil doing some
seminar work, i was told by many people of the collect call problem

it seems that in brazil, if you make a collect call, the default
action (in the absence of someone saying that they don't want to
accept the charge) is for the charge to be made collect.  so people
would call their isps this way and get (relatively) free service.
