All is better. Since the order did not go through on the website, SBC was able to expedite things and get me set up for tomorrow. I still have to wait until the 30th for DSL. When I was getting my phone service on the 28th, they told me it will take two business days after the phone is turned on; and that would be the 30th.
NOW, they are telling me that the DSL takes up to 5 business days after the phone is hooked up, which takes us to the 30th.
What's so special about the 30th?
