phone number
A number identifying a specific phone line. In the United States, a phone number consists of a 3 digit area code and a 7 digit number. If you call BBS's in other countries, there may be a specific country code and city code that is part of the phone number. You can usually find these codes in a phone book. A BBS will usually ask you to tell it your phone number before you can be a registered user.
