Indeed, and along those lines, try to make sure those numbers stay active 
through corporate evolution, acquisitions, etc.  If I dig (no pun 
intended) around enough, I'm sure I can find some boxes with dead "For 
trouble, call..." numbers.  That isn't always possible, and some companies 
are notorious for having 237 different numbers to call depending on what 
you need, but it's probably a lot cheaper to continue operating a 
backwater 800 number than it would be to dispatch techs to re-label field 

I hope everyone stateside is having a good and quiet Thanksgiving :)
