Secret Knowledge -- Santa uses VoIP

I just got an email from Vonage letting me know that I can call Santa for free using my Vonage phone line. They say to have the "little ones" dial *101 and they can hear Santa's voice and leave him a message. Not that I need anything from the big guy, but I thought I'd give it a try just to make sure it was on the up and up. I'd hate for YOU to be disappointed. Sure enough, a Santa like voice answered. He began by letting me know that he was out back working with the elves, but that I should feel free to leave him a message with my holiday requests. He was very polite, too. He even thanked me for using Vonage! I guess he finds retrieving his messages on Vonage's web based integrated console a lot more convenient than the TUI he used previously.
