    I was in this vr hack study in Conn. They paid me 5 bucks. Now I know why I ran into that wall five times?

    I accidentally discovered that fake phone called ringing thing back in 2011.
    I used one phone to call another phone right in front of me, in a location where all the cell tower circuits would fill up around 5PM every day.
    The phone I called did not ring even though I heard the ringing sound in the phone that I was making the call from.
    They would play that ringing sound rather than saying no cell tower circuits are available right now.
    I co-owned an electronics repair store and got a flood of customers complaining that the person they called would never answer their phone.
    Once I figured out what was going on, I had to explain to everyone that AT&T was lying to them.
