Comcast Changes Your Telephone Number, Neglects To Inform You

Welcome, Comcast, to Houston, TX, where you’ve already managed to irritate your brand new customers. Laura Gill is perhaps the most irritated of them all.

Comcast changed her phone number with out her permission and didn’t bother to tell her.

“What got to me more than anything else they changed my phone number and they don’t even let me know. I had no clue my phone number was changed and I had that number for seven years,” Lisa told KHOU.

“I want my phone number back — bottom line.”

Thanks to some calls from reporters, she got her wish. Isn’t bad PR neat?
