Mashable has some interesting facts about phone numbers, including two bits about phone numbers in films/tv shows:
The “Klondike” or “KL” phone exchange was first used to generate fictional phone numbers in American TV and films. This later evolved to the current “555″ prefix, some of which have been set aside purely for fictional purposes. In the UK, 01632 is the fictional area code recommended by Ofcom, although it does also provide non-working suggestions for major cities, as well as fictional cell, freephone and premium rate numbers. Some have bucked the 555 trend. Universal Studios owns (212) 664-7665, which has appeared in The Adjustment Bureau, Definitely Maybe and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. If you call the number, it just rings and rings. Fight Club uses the 288 area code, which is not yet in use, and Bruce Almighty caused controversy for using a real phone number supposedly belonging to God. After complaints, the original “776-2323″ was changed to the more traditional 555-0123 in the DVD release.
