New Cell Phone Regulations

I don't know how it works in America and the rest of the world, but in Israel for most plans you get charged a minute of calling even if you're on the phone for less then a second. This is especially annoying when you get a voice mail and immediately hang up; you still get charged for a minute. Until now. The government has passed a law (or a regulation. or something. whatever you call it,) not allowing the cell phone companies to charge people for a service they dont want. At the start of this year (now) when you call a cellphone, instead of going immediately to the voice mail, there is a recording, "you are now being transferred to a voice mail". this gives you those few seconds ot hang up and not be charged. Thank you regulators, for stopping the phone companies from charging us for unwanted services!
