Split the bill with your mate. That'll teach you to lend him it again.
I thought if the other person put their phone down it would disconnect the line & not leave it open ?

on my phone, the call will only end when the person who made the call puts the receiver down. unless i unplug it at the wall. then it resets.

Are you an American?

Tell him to pay! Either that or you pay. Unless of course; you are hoping somehow that your telephone provider should pay for your mate's folly..........

How much was it?!

How much was it?!

BT at 12.5p for 180mins gives £22.50.

Doesn't your phone make that wierd wooo wooo sound when you forget to hang up. Yeh I think the options are there ask him to pay, better off getting some free beers of em next time rather than transacting money.
Was it landline to landline or landline to mobile?
