Hahah ... Verizon & Caller ID

I called Verizon last week and had them turn on my Caller ID. Ever since then, I keep getting calls from:

NMBR = 2058140233

I finally picked up today, my curiosity having finally got to me. (did I forget to pay a bill?) No, it was just a Verizon customer representative that wanted to know if everything was working and if I was happy with my service.

"Well, I didn't answer the last three times you called, so it's working great."

"Good to hear, Mr. Fitzpatrick, you have a wonderful day."

"You too."
