If you have SBC phone service but don't subscribe to their "saver pack," any call you make outside a 15-mile radius of your house will incur extra charges. This could add up quickly if you're using a dial-up Internet connection outside that range. Joe Chellman did some digging and found SBC's Local Call Tool, which gives you a list of prefixes within your range.
