Dear Editor,

A few months before Katrina, our telephone service was down fora while. When the BellSouth repairman came out, he suggested thatnext time I could ask to have my landline calls forwarded to mycell phone while waiting for the repair. I was not aware of thisservice.

A big tree took down our power lines and phone lines on August29. I called BellSouth to have my calls forwarded which they did ina few hours and at no charge.

BellSouth did an outstanding job restoring service after thestorm. This tip allowed us to have normal phone service for tendays sooner. People calling got a real person rather than a “noanswer.”

I would like to compliment BellSouth and remind everyone thatthis service is available.
