Sweden gives the world its digits
It's not easy getting a hold of someone on the phone. Answering services make you dial "1" for this, "2" for that, and four transfers in, the call is dropped.
So, it's kind of amazing that Sweden launched a phone number that connects anyone in the world with a "random Swede."
That's right! Sweden, the country sandwiched between Norway and Finland, wants anyone to call +46 771 793 336 and find out what it has to offer.
(Heads up! International calling fees apply.)
Calls are connected to "phone ambassadors" through a corresponding app.
Any topic is on the table. Meatballs, the Nobel Prize, IKEA - you name it - just ask, and callers can get an uncensored view of the first country to abolish censorship.
