Last week Thursday the whole town of Beamsville had no hydro which I know might kill off some of the cable equipment since they feed power from the main lines out there. So the battery in the modem did it job and gave me phone service BUT the strange thing was that I could call out and no one could call me. Sure I had no trouble calling people in town but the thing was when someone would call me an lady tells them 'my service is unavailable'. So my question is, why can I call out but no one can call me?
EDIT: just realized a typo. Thanks.
