    BEIJING - A court has ordered a Chinese television production company to pay damages to a man who received more than 3,000 nuisance messages after his mobile phone number was used in a police TV drama.

    The court said the Runshi Rongguang Film Production Co. should have made sure the number was not in use before having a villain say it aloud on-screen, China's official Xinhua News Agency reported.

    ...which is why in America...we use 555-prefix. Nobody is allowed to use 555 so its automatically a null phone number.

    yeah but it always kills any imersion when you hear a 555 number because you know they're fake. what i don't get is why people would call or text a number they saw in a film

    Actually, only 555-0100 through 555-0199 are reserved for fictitious use, all the rest are (or can be) real numbers.
