    For free directory assistance in California dial 1-800-SAN-DIEGO,
    1-800-LOS-ANGELES or 1-800-SAN-FRANCISCO. All will give you
    information for all of California.

    So only dial the 7 digits. Just like any 800 / 888 'long' number -
    i.e. 1-800-bestpricesonwidgets - you don't need to dial the entire
    number.

    Easily rectified. On your cell phone just dial the first 11 digits. In the land
    line business, extra digits are ignored. On a cell phone since you are inputing
    the digits and then sending them, more than the prescribed amount and you will
    get an error recording as you indicate.
