Ah! Since Sprint isn't interested in doing training, I'll stop
answering questions from any Sprint staff. (I've wasted a lot of
time talking to a succession of persons in position 'x', none of
whom ever passed on information to anyone else or documented what
their job entailed, I guess.)

Thanks--this explains why the Sprint NOC was so surly and
unhelpful when I called.

How about an abrogation of responsibility?
