I'm sure a few of you Everythingian
s are cheap
like myself and take advantage of Net Zero's free internet
service. Do you long for the days when Net Zero provided you with unlimited free internet access
? Well, I figured out one way to avoid their newly imposed forty hours per month limit on their free service.
So, I'm sure all of you have tried reinstalling
and creating a new account
, but Net Zero has some sort of Caller ID
system that keeps track of the number of hours your phone number
logs regardless of what account you use. There is a way to avoid this hurdle
however. First, create a new account by reinstalling the program
. Then, if go to modify your calling options you will notice it has a check box that allows you to disable call waiting
, and it gives you a place to enter the number you'd dial to disable it (typically *70
). Instead of putting in that number put in *67
. This will block your number from being displayed on caller id machines at the numbers you call. Now whenever you dial your local number it will prefix it with *67. Voila
! Now you will just have to make a new account every time you go over forty hours.
