My Phone Number Is Being Held Hostage

In case you’ve been trying to reach me, my phone number is currently being held hostage by one of the big telcos (and I’m not even sure which one). I was trying to switch service providers, but they missed the install appointment and the change order went through anyway. So now if you call my number, you get a disconnect notice. Yes, I paid my phone bill!

I am not a happy camper. Full story here along with a rant about customer service if you’re interested.

If you’re just trying to reach me and wondering what happened, use my cell phone, 512-486-0701, for now. I’m told it’s going to be something like a week before they get it all back like it’s supposed to be.

Isn’t technology supposed to make our lives easier?
