This practice is illegal, per a 2014 rule imposed by the FCC.

As a result of T-Mobile’s negligence, the company must pay a $40 million fine, alter its practices, and report yearly to the FCC to ensure compliance.

You dial the number, hold the phone to your ear, and listen to the ringing sound.

Eventually, either the person or a voicemail service answers the call.
