Be sure to check one of the current PSP info APARS (like SF98410) for
the newer ECS phone number with 19.2 modems at IBM's end.  Well, lets
make this easy, see below.  (Note - for USA only - in Canada they had
the sense to have 19.2 capable modems on all the ECS modems in the pool
- don't see why US needed a separate number unless they couldn't afford
to replace all the old 7855 modems):

                                                                       
 New Electronic Customer Support (ECS) ports are now available on      
 the USA IBM service systems that are capable of running sessions      
 at 19.2 K baud (existing ports can run at a maximum of 9.6 K baud).   
 If you have a modem capable of running at this speed (e.g. 7852)      
 you can improve the performance of your ECS sessions by changing the  
 connection number for ECS on your machine to one of the following:    
                                                                       
         1-800-237-8804    Eastern USA                                 
         1-800-525-2834    Western USA                                 
                                                                       
 The primary use of ECS is to download PTFs via the SNDPTFORD          
 command.  For information on how to change the connection number      
 for ECS on your system, refer to Chapter 7 of the AS/400 System       
 Operation publication.
