Default Re: Technology related anachronisms on TV and in films etc.

One of my pet peeves is when the called party in a phone call hangs up on the calling party who then hears dial tone......

It is calling party cleardown!

Try it when someone calls- ask them to hold on, put your phone back on hook, wait a second or two and pick up again- they'll still be there.....
