NECA has a call testing project that has recruited lots of originating and
terminating carriers, but it's for call completion testing.
The issue you're facing is not unusual - we make a point, when turning up a
new NPA/NXX, to have a multi-week period of testing using as many different
carriers as we can.
For those who confirmed failure, they ought to call their wireless carrier's
support line and open up a trouble. In our experience that leads to
resolution 90% of the time in just a few days.

I stumbled on this list recently and have been reading through the archives.
Thanks for all the information you've all shared.
We're a CLEC in Illinois and are in the middle of building a FTTH network in
our home town. In December our exchange 217-777 was effective. We're using
ANPI's Tandem service for our Feature Group D traffic and using our ILEC
(Consolidated Communications) as our intralata/local tandem.
No troubles on the Intralata/local terminating traffic, however, we're
having more and more reports of different people out in the world that can't
call our customers.
It started with AT&T Cellular, that's been resolved, then we heard from
Sprint PCS, that's been resolved. Next was Comcast Business, that's been
Latest example is a caller from Texas who is on Time Warner Cable:
LEC: TIME WARNER CBLE INFO SVC (TX) DBA TIME WARNER CBL
When they call us they just get dead air.
I guess my questions are: How long after the effective date in the BIRRDS
database do all of the switches get updated? Is this a typical problem with
a new exchange/LRN?
A follow up question: is there a service out there that will originate calls
from many different telcos and if they fail, open up a ticket with that
carrier? I'm running into roadblocks calling these carriers since I am not
I've got a test number set up on 217-777-0001, "Thank you for Calling. You
have reached a test number. Your telephone number is. " if there's anyone
out there who wants to give it a test and report back, fine by me. It seems
the more information I have the better.
Thanks for listening,
