However, my mother lives in the UK and since a couple of weeks she can’t call me anymore. She’s with Talk Talk, and it seems that something has changed in the way they route international calls. They claim there’s nothing wrong at their end, but other family members who are still with BT have no problem.

The point is, sometimes it’s not only the bad boys who are blocked…
