Well, it could simply be a long distance call? But I suppose if you're on here he knows he hasn't made them. A Porn Dialer comes up as Premium; so do all Dialers. So it can't be that. Could be a simple telephone call centre or something like that? What is the number that the Long Distance Line is from? Is it always the same number?
Although; biggest likelyhood is its a Porn Dialer and he's downloaded it and forgotten to install it. It is impossible for you not to notice any dialer software dialing - as the computer beeps the phone doesn't work and even if the computer doesn't beep - you'll notice the phone not working or the internet going down.
For $300, the call will have to be about 2.5 hours at even the craziest rates for a Long Distance Call anyway.
