Problem: Roommates/employees use the same phone to make long distance calls.
Suggestion: Require a pin number to be entered before each call. The telephone bills will reflect the pin number of the call and therefore the call's purpose and source.

customers, persons or whatever is necessary for the telephone service customer to track.
Telephone companies could generate profits by charging additional fees for this pin number tracking service.
