[PLUG] OT: Strange Verizon telephone behavior Monday morning

This morning I made three attempts on a FIOS telephone line to dial
a Philadelphia client on the (215) exchange.  Each time I was greeted
with: "To enter your mailbox, press star, or, if you are not at your home
telephone ..." My Verizon answering service number starts with (610).

Then I tried calling from my home line, also (610) and got the same
message.  My home line is copper.

Then I called from my cellphone - same result; still (610). Cellphone !

The situation corrected itself when I actually did dial in for my
messages; after that the client number worked OK.

I have never before experienced any such wrong connections, except for
my own mis-dialing errors.
