"Tell me' information hotline
« on: April 17, 2019, 12:56:43 PM »
The famous 'tell me' (800-555-TELL) hotline used by many for years for lots of helpful info, not so long ago shut down but was replaced by a new number (408)-752-8052. As of sometime last week this number also stopped working. Anyone have any further info about this or if there is another number to call instead? TIA

Good times, reminds me of Yeshiva days.
I put the 800-555-TELL number as in Easter egg in a post recently, but nobody noticed.

It has indeed been replaced. By the internet.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I didn't say it would work for yeshivas. But my high school days didn't have mobile internet to compete with.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

You should have typed the first three letters of the option in the keypad.
I'm not who you think I am.

Black jack with Sean Connery was where it was at!
