Preferrably one like 'Hi, Your long distance carrier has made a grave 
error on their interconnection configuration. Please contact your long 
distance carrier for help'.

Or even better "Hi, your long distance carrier made a serious mistake in 
routing this call. If you'd like more reliable long distance service 
feel free to give us a call at xxx-xxx-xxxx. Otherwise, call your long 
distance company and ask them to make sure they're passing Generic 
Address Parameter to our tandem." :)

>> Years ago our switch tech decided to make our main company number the same as our LRN.  We have had an ongoing issue where calls to an LNP'd number do not come into our switch with the original called number and they are routed into our company PBX and we end up becoming the switchboard for people trying to reach our customers.  It seems as though we have been more and more of these calls lately.  Has anyone dealt with a similar issue? If so, what was your resolution?
