Busy signal? in SASS Wire Saloon Posted January 26, 2017 I can't remember the last time I got a busy signal when calling someone. I get voice mail or they answer. It seems the busy signal has been destined to the dark shelves of history! Remember if you really had to get a hold of someone and it was busy you could call the operator and she would cut into the call and tell the person someone is trying to get a hold of them. It had to be an emergency though! Anyone get busy signals anymore??
