If you are looking for Apple's technical support line and accidently call 1-800-S zero S - APPL in stead of 1-800-SoS-APPL you will end up being propositioned by a breathy recording trying to get you to have steamy phone sex.

Can't remember if I read this in MacWorld or on a BBS while waiting for the full version of Marathon 2 to be released.

The toll-free phone number for technical support at Apple. It's gone downhill since circa 1996 when they canceled unlimited telephone support, but that's another story.

Anyway, this particular number has fallen into disuse partly because of the not-so-free support after 1 year, and partly because people would dial the O as a zero. Coincidentally, the number with a zero happens to be a sex chat hotline in the US. The same thing happened with one of the US Government's flood hotlines once.

Yes, I've accidentally done that

Phone: Hi, Baby! You've reached the sexiest chat line in America!
Me: ?

Who says Mac users don't have a better time than PC users?
