I hate to say this, but Ameritech/SBC is utterly useless in matters like
this.  I mean, at one point their redback was being nailed, and they didn't
seem to care one bit.  After 5pm, everyone with a clue seems to leave, and
we are left with useless low level help desk techs.

Our DSL service isn't bad - in fact it rarely goes down.  The problem is
that when we need their help with something out of our league, they are
completely useless.  Anyone know of a contact number for SBC/Ameritech that
would be useful in a case like this?
