That's easy - ask them if they could ring your boss, he makes all the
decisions regardng telephone accounts. Unfortunately its an
international call - is that a problem ?
If not, could they please update their database please. The new number
for decisions about this telephone account is: 0011-1-301-555-1212

(LA Number enquiry service - substitute 301 with your favourite US area
