    I tried several times to dial a number from my cell phone tonight
    that was given to me, each time it came up with a number that does not
    exist.
    Finally, the party called me and I explain this to them, they assured
    me it was correct and had some one there call it with their cell phone
    and it worked. So I grabbed my wife's phone, and that too, won't make a
    connection.
    I am a Verison customer and the other party I think is a AT&T customer.
    Is there some know problem with phone numbers coming up brain dead to
    some services?

    P.S.

    I also tried my house phone which is with AT&T, same problem but
    Like I said, they had some one in their home dial the number and it
    worked. so, go fing.

    They forgot to give you a part of their number?
    The bit at the start that means AT&T.

    Problem solved.//

    She has one of those dual phone systems with 2 numbers. One is a
    general purpose number that she pays her self and is full access the
    other number is paid by the business and that is how they get directly
    connected with her or any one else on that same service. That service
    requires a list of numbers that are acceptable. She happens to have her
    family members on that list so they can call either number.

    Hmm, with a come back like that, I wonder how your health is lately?
    Mental health that is.

    It just so happens the problem was an incorrect phone number, even
    though the number that was given to me was valid. It was a secondary
    number used for the business and business members only and needs to have
    my number added before it'll work. The full access number worked just
    fine and goes to the same phone, the difference is, she pays that part
    of the bill.

    Sorry to hear about your family members departing in such a way. At
    least you know how they past, for me, I lost my mother on New Years
    eve and they really don't know what she died of? Even though she made
    frequent doctor and hospital visits, the only thing she ever complained
    about was a pain in her stomach. However, they never found anything?

    She just slowly got weaker as the days went on and finally when her
    fingers and toes started curly up and she wasn't eating, I guess that
    was when they called the family.

    I wasn't there when she actually past, mainly because I was informed
    of her condition kind of late. You see I live 350 miles from where she was.

    For all you spooks, earlier that day before I had any news of this,
    at exactly 2:45 PM, what the clock on my stove said, I got very agitated
    for some unknown reason and just could not make up my mind what I wanted
    to do. So I jumped in my Jeep and took a ride to the pet store to get
    some food for my dog. Later after chinese that night, I got the call and
    her passing time was at 2:45 PM. Kind of strange, taint it? ;)

    All she wanted to know just prior to her passing was to make sure
    they had called me. Shortly after, she was gone. The other strange part
    to this is how she was talking about some long past family member
    telling her it was ok. That is weird, too.

    My brother had a series of strokes about ten years ago. In the process of the
    brain rewiring itself, the nerve that serves the right side of his body got
    "confused" with the one to his heart. If he's bumped on his right side, he
    drops to the floor, unconscious. He has had a pacemaker-defibrillator put in,
    which helps, but it still ruins his day.
    You can see it but, yes, the brain attempts to fill in that space using
    information from the other eye. There is a reason the spot isn't centered,
    too.
    Redundancy is. ECC is, in a way, "self healing". Memory arrays often are
    "self healing", as well. Telephone networks? There are many examples of
    "self" healing electronic systems.
    There are *so* many people. ;-)
    Well, it's pretty obvious that without an immune system we couldn't survive.
    I think it's rather amazing what's already been accomplished and it's
    accelerating (if Obamacare doesn't kill advancements completely). Indeed, I
    think it's rather amazing that any drugs work without poisoning the host.
    Agreed.

    Well understood. My family has always been about reasonable quality of
    life of life instead of maximum extension of life.
