Most of the functions sound like standard tests made available to linemen, you're lucky to have them all bundled into one line though and not a seperate line for each function
Who's your local service provider? Verizon, Bellwhatever, etc.?

Yeah, but, that doesn't always hold true. In fact, 2 people can have the same phone service provider, and there'll still be differences how things are handled by your local switch at the CO. Here's a prime example: Around here, as I mentioned, 811+last digits works just like 959+last 4 digits. (For ringback testing of the line). Yet, out of another CO downtown, when you dial 811, it waits for 7 more digits to be dialed. (811+Nxx-xxxx). When you do, you get the automated James Earl Jones voice saying "Welcome to Verizon", then a live op comes on the line. So, in other words, the way all the n11 numbers (211, 311, 411, etc). are set up from one CO to the next can be different. I can tell you this though, all n11 numbers forward to another regular phone number somewhere. And, of course, the only n11 numbers that are usually (if not always) the same from one CO to the next is 411 (Diectory assistance), 911 (Police/fire/emergency service) and now, in more recent years, 711 (for your state's TTY/TDD relay service). Some years agoo, 611 used to be used for repair service. But, mine is now a toll free number, and think many other people's are as well. Although, some COCOTS are programmed to dial the number to their local repair/refund service help when you hit in 611. Trust me, things can vary A LOT depending on where you are, whether you using a payphone, whether It's a standard fortress payphone or COCOT, and much more. As always, doing as much hands-on experimentation as possible is the key.
True. I dont know a whole bunch about Verizon, being on Telus my whole life. I would like to think, though, that the things one person experiences are also available to moi.
