Cell Phone Number Changes

                       Ecuador Cell Phone Number Changes
Did I read the Claro text correctly?    New cell phones may run out of phone numbers.
Sounds like all cell phone numbers will change at the end of September.

Well, our friend Keith clarified with an email today:

To make a call to a phone number in Ecuador starting September 30, 2012:

   BEFORE September 30, 2012 (9 digit cell phone numbers)

   Beginning September 30, 2012 (10 digit cell phone numbers)

 ****For example the cell number 09 462 1234 becomes 099 462 1234 ***

How to make a call from abroad to a phone number?

   BEFORE September 30, 2012 (11 digits)

   Beginning September 30, 2012 (12 digits)
So let's copy down all our phone numbers stored in our cell phones!

Radioman Returns to Cuenca

Sunday we enjoyed the return of our friend Mark Donham, Radioman, on his second South American tour. We saw him in March, after his US and Central American tours. Visit our March post for details.

Mark recently completed a tour of India, including riding the highest auto road in the world at 18,340 feet in the Himalayas on a rented Royal Infield bike. What happens when the bike blows an engine in the middle of nowhere? Read his blog for the exciting adventure:

 His blog has grown from 500,000 hits to 850,000 since we saw him last!

The link on top will entertain you with videos and musical exploration.

Now Mark is touring south and planning a boat trip to Antartica. He future plans are yielded to the Lord's leading.   Total freedom!
