TX: Sprint technical glitch

"I began to get calls from women wanting to
know why I was calling their husbands," Ms.
Thompson says. "Then the next call came, and
the next call came. I decided something weird
was going on."

Although Ms. Thompson figures some kind of
bug in the phone system must have distributed
her message, she can't prove that. Tom Murphy,
director of media relations at Sprint PCS
headquarters in Kansas City, Kan., says he
doesn't know whether such a mix-up is
technologically possible and can't comment
without more details.
