The earthquake struck Indonesia's Aceh province just before dawn on Wednesday, lasting around 15 seconds and causing the deaths of nearly 100 people and the collapse of about 100 buildings in the area. That includes 72 combined shops and dwellings, 15 homes, a gas station, a school, and five mosques. Rescue efforts are hampered by the fact that the local hospital was also damaged in the quake. http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/verizon-free-calls-texts-indonesia/ -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly) ------------------------------ Message-ID: <Pine.NEB.4.64.1612071404560.16065@panix5.panix.com> Date: Wed, 7 Dec 2016 14:06:35 -0500 From: danny burstein <dannyb@panix.com> Subject: Multi phone/multi number offering from t-mobile T-mobile, as we speak, just announced a multi-device, multi-number, option.
