Jim wants to call his friend Bob. Bob's Phone number is 976-6419. Jim dialed this number perfectly but then ended up calling the wrong house. He tried again and dialed the number perfectly. Once again his call didn't go through, in fact his call never went through to Bob.
Why couldn't Jim call Bob?
He has speed calling 8, which uses digits 2 - 9 to dial a prestored number, and he dialed the 7 after a long enough pause that the system took the 9 to be a speed-dial number and dialed that number.
