There seems to be a lot of confusion regarding my phone number. This is how my phone service is set up. Some of you have a 515.991.6853 phone number. This was a cell number that I gave to humans for PAGING purposes only. It was to not be called (and the reason was to avoid the confusion everyone appears to be getting). If you had a cell phone, that was the number you had to send a message to. That number is being changed to a new number. Despite the cell number change, the HOME phone number REMAINS the same. This means the few people who want to call to talk to me, call me at that number. We have three nice features on my home service that link the home and the cell number. I sent out a message to everyone on my 515.991.6853 that the number was not being used anymore, and to reach me at a new number. Of course, half of the people started sending messages to the old number that is being discontinued. Humans... hehehe.
So to sum it up, do not call 515.991.6853 or page it. It is being disconnected before the end of the month. Continue to call my home number (shown on my home page) when you want to reach me. The VM you hear is to my cell phone. You can press 5 to page if you wish not to leave a message, and you can press # at any second of the recording to bypass my sometimes long messages. If you wish to send text messages to my cell phone, and do not have the number, then reply to this with your request and cell number. If you wish not to comment with your cell number shown, then email it to my email address with the request. If you do not know that, then send a comment with YOUR email or contact and I shall reach you.
Thank you all for staying confused, and keeping me busy :D
