800 is your Distress SOS
In 1906, “SOS” became the official distress signal worldwide. If you need help because appliances or products are giving you trouble, or if you’ve got questions of any kind, just tap out the easy homeowners’ distress code on your phone, “800” and the company’s toll-free number for fast information.
If you don’t know a company’s 800 number, just dial toll-free 800 information at 1-(800)-555-1212. Help will soon be on its way.
