It is under my understanding that Uverse is now offering Speed Calling - although only the 30 number version. What about some of the other features that is available with the traditional phone line - such as *69; *61 and Ringmaster (AKA Distinctive Ring, Ring Mate; Multiring)? I keep on hearing about all of the so called feature enriched services. But when I look at my plan with the Complete Choice package (that's the original BellSouth Complete Choice; not this new thing called Complete Choice Enhanced); I count the same number of features. And these include all of the above I mentioned (not to mention I have Speed Calling 8 and 30 on the same line). If Uverse is truly IP, then perhaps they can also an IP version of Ringmaster where we can pick numbers from different cities. The benefit would be a local presense in a distant city - not to mention caller saving on potential toll charges - which would be similar to (but not exactly like) a Foreign Exchange line. As for *69, I have an older wall phone in the garage with no display. So when I arrive from work or a shopping spree, I can immediately pick up the receiver and press this code to verbally hear who called. And since Uverse is not regulated, I can't see why the return call feature should be limited to the lata. These are just a couple of examples how I use the phone. It should be noted that Verizon Fios offers all of these features - in fact their speed calling has 100 numbers using the traditional *75 code that was assigned for Speed Dial 30. And they offer a form of distinctive ring - although there is an extra cost for this service. I congradulate AT&T for adding a form of speed calling (which I believe actually has 32 numbers). Now let's get the rest. Regardless of whether this is for residental or business applications!

There are many systems out there that do all this and more, with many handsets (cordless), there's also small inexpensive business systems designed for home use. Whether or not you choose to use them and their features is your choice.
