Please Ask My Dear Aunt Sally

Dear Aunt Sally,

My phone number is 406-287-0305 and when I tell people my phone number they always write: 466-287-6365. Do you think I should correctly say "zero" when I mean zero? This was not such a problem before text messaging but now people type the digit 6 for the letter "oh".

Wrong Number

Dear Wrong Number,

6 2 999 22 33 (in text messaging)
