    Beginning on Tues or Wed I am unable to dial any phone numbers that begin with 416-951. 416 is the area code for Toronto, and the 951 prefix is a Bell Canada Mobility prefix. I have no problem dialing other Bell Canada 416 #'s. The last time I successfully dialed a 416-951 # was late Monday evening EST. I have the Nationwide Plus Canada plan, previously had the North American plan and have never had this problem, I call 416-951 #'s frequently. I have tried on calling these numbers on several of my friends verizon wireless phones as well and have the same problem. Is it possible there is simply a delay in updating the routing tables/switches and that if I just wait several for days the problem will take care of itself, or should I try to get tech support on this. I went into a verizon store but the in-store tech tried to blame Bell. When I do call after 2 or 3 rings I get an error announcement that is difficult to make out. It possibly says one of the following: "Announcement 4628-5" "Announcement 4/28-5" "Announcement 4 Switch 28-5"

    Any thoughts would be appreciated, if my explanation sucks, I'll try to clarify based on feedback

    I suppose calling from your home landline works ok? This does sound like a Verizon issue. I don't know how the CDMA carriers do routing but have you tried putting a 1 in front of the area code.

    Yeah, I've played all around with putting a 1 in front, using no 1, deleting the entry from my phonebook. It works fine from my land line, and from one of my friend's cells, but he has ATT, which is why I think it must be an issue on Verizon's end. I had a problem a few years ago where for about 3 days I couldn't make or receive calls, but this is just bizarre that it is only 416-951-xxxx numbers.

    Start with a call to Verizon using your landline. When they get you to a tech they are probably going to want you to make a call to the problem number so they can capture the info. From there, Verizon should be able to tell if it's in thier routing or not. Good luck.

    this could be a routing problem......my cousins live out in the Harrisburg, PA area and i know here in Reading we don't need to add the "+" or the "1" but if you have the 717 numbers you do......so try adding the + in front of your 1
