This has been his gov't number for a few years now. They keep changing providers to try to find one on the island that doesn't have so many blind (deaf) spots. But this is the first change they've made where you get to keep your old number. They pay the bills so should have no problem fixing the problem with Cingular but he had to go all weekend without a phone when it usually rings all weekend with ship business. A pleasant development I'd have to say. He will have to talk to whomever handles this stuff tomorrow when he gets to work. I have a feeling that the problem is with everyone's phone in his office but haven't called anybody to check it out.
I was just checking with you folks to make sure I hadn't inadvertently missed something. I do appreciate the advice.
