Dear T-Mobile

Dear T-Mobile: Why my phone no ring? I have sound turned on? My phone is telling me I have bars. I get the notification that the caller left a message...

Is the number in your contact list? If not, it may be a new "feature" they are testing (my default ring is silence, and everyone in my contact list has a non-default ring tone).

It wasn't, it was a return call from a vendor. So, yeah, maybe I got caught in some anti-spam efforts.

That will also happen if the cell you’re in is at capacity. The call can’t be completed, so it goes straight to voicemail without ringing. Happens a lot to us here in NM, where T-Mobile has not been improving their infrastructure lately, so many cells are at capacity for more hours per day. Got bad enough that we switched networks to Verizon (we buy our service from Ting, so switching was a phone call, and then waiting for a new SIM to arrive).

(You should probably use "Text" mode: URLs will be mostly recognized and linked, _underscore quoted_ text is looked up in a glossary, _underscore quoted_ (http://xyz.pdq) becomes a link, without the link in the parenthesis it becomes a <cite> tag. All <cite>ed text will point to the Flutterby knowledge base. Two enters (ie: a blank line) gets you a new paragraph, special treatment for paragraphs that are manually indented or start with "#" (as in "#include" or "#!/usr/bin/perl"), "/* " or ">" (as in a quoted message) or look like lists, or within a paragraph you can use a number of HTML tags:

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
