The reason we can't accept collect calls on a cell phone is the same reason we don't allow customers to use 900 numbers. The process involved requires reverse billing. On landline services this is available. But do to the technology involved it is 1. not economical for the provider. 2. More systems enhancements then the services are worth. 3. Opens up the ability for potentialy more cases of fraudulent activations. The Cost involved are greater then the benifits. So in a nutshell... No Collect Calls =)

Cheers.... =)
