there is a default number you can call from your homeline then after you've done that you hang up and the call you made comes back to you as if someone was actually calling you on your homeline, I saw a telecom technician do this once awhile ago but I can't remember the number does anyone know the default number...

If memory serves correctly, it's either 128 or 218.  Haven't tried it in years though.

128 is Telecom credit.
I believe 137 will result in an automated callback.

Another handy one is 1956, which plays you the number you are calling from. Handy for testing.
