Telephone record keeper
A device that would record the user, time, date and length of each call that is made on a specific telephone so that you can compare it to you telephone bill to ensure that the telephone billing is correct. As it is now, the telephone company could add a small un-noticed charge or route a call via a more expensive route and charge consumers more for the same call to the same place and who would know? This would help keep the telephone companies "honest". Also, each user would have a ID code that they would have to enter into the device before they could use the phone. This would make it easy to divide the bill or in large companies give them the ability to see who is making calls, to where and how long they are on the phone. Could save "millions" by discouraging people who use the phone for their own personal business while at work. Or good for people who share telephones and would like to accurately divide the bill, etc.

Reward: A device for all my telephones, forever.
