*Investigation into current problems:*

*UPDATED 10/06 4:00 PM EST*

The second attack against our new servers has been suppressed.

sip.callcentric.com and srv.callcentric.com should provide better quality

page (http://www.twitter.com/Callcentric) as we will be posting updates and

We sincerely appreciate your patience with us and again apologize for the
