'not sure how widespread the problem is, but in the continuing fashion of much of the past week, phone lines up north are down yet again.

Thankfully, it's not like it's a busy holiday weekend or anything...

Anyone who might need to reach us (Rojo reservations or otherwise) please e-mail: [email protected]

Our fixed cell and our Smart (678 5096) are working; it's only the 226 numbers. Not being able to call to- and from parts of the US and Europe is a common BTL problem; has been for 3 years now on their fixed cells and also lately on their regular wireless system.

Rumor was that an equipment malfunction caused all of the microwave-based phones to the south and north to be cut off. BTL technicians needed to go door to door on Mon/Tues to "reboot" them (with one crew). Talk about stone ages... Obviously they've not gotten to all of you - BTL is back in business on Monday.

Best way to get on the list for repair is to call 0800-CALL-BTL on Monday AM to report a fault (from your cell :))

PS Jan - I think your Smart number is 678-5096 not 5095
