I had a long PDD and no ring-back on the first number
For the second number I had a long PDD and no ring-back followed by a call
announcement code.  On my second attempt I got through, but also no

Should I be getting a ring-back?

In regards to your question, yes, you have to self-test and beg and plead.
We've padded our CLEC launches by about a month to work through all those
issues.  There's no telco equivalent for checking new block announcements
(i.e. http://www.ris.ripe.net/debogon/)

Has the industry come up with a better way of dealing with the drudgery of
calling every carrier in an area and cajoling, begging, and pleading with
them to get their new prefix loaded in everyone's switches other than the
traditional "buy a pile of paygo phones and open tickets with each carrier"

(half frustrated, half serious. If I had spare time these days, it seems
this sort of contact information would be a perfect fit for my database, but
alas, I can barely keep up with eating 3 meals a day these days, let alone
work on more neat stuff like this)


PS: If you can't call 708-666-7999 (and more humorously, 708-666-7565)
please fix your stuff. If you have any unreachable codes, I'll happily check
my systems to return the favor.
