Quote from: Butch Harlow on February 09, 2018, 08:05:14 PMSorry, it's 202 762-1401 or 202 762-1069 However, when I call from my cellphone it does not answer, when I call from my Comcast VOIP line it answers immediately.The Colorado number is 719 567-6742 All 3 worked perfect when I dialed from my 3 slot payphone in the kitchen, none answered from my cell. Odd.
Quote from: TelePlay on February 09, 2018, 09:05:15 PMAll 3 numbers worked with my cell phone. I have USCellular as my carrier, a major minor player in the PCS phone business (had them since 1990, the dawn of large scale commercial service).All three number answered with the tick tick of a clock, then a voice saying "from the US Naval Observatory the time is . . . " No weather, just the universal time clock.Who is your carrier?
