Leave it up to Cingular to be stupid. :P I've been a customer of Alltel,
Northcoast PCS, Sprint PCS and now T-Mobile, and the old GTE Wireless
dating back to '93. On none of those carriers have I ever been forced to
dial 10D if I wasn't roaming, and if I was dialing a number in the same
area code my cellphone number was in.

IOW, I'm pretty sure they're the only company doing that, though ICBW.
