George Zimmerman Cell Phone Number Retired
Here is all about why they decided to “retire” the cell phone number.
A man from Orlando Florida could be considered unlucky. He got a cell phone from T-mobile. The unlucky part is the number the cell phone company gave him the former number of George Zimmerman who is accused of murdering Trayvon Martin some months ago.
The way the number became known because as you may remember, Zimmerman is accused of killing Martin during a night watch. It was recorded when he gave the 911 operator his cell phone number and it was spread by the media and went viral on the internet.
Junior Alexander Guy is the unfortunate man to get the number. He, according to the Orlando (Florida) Sentinel, works at a wastewater plan in Orlando. After he got his cell phone he got interesting, to say the least, calls. At first he was confused as to why he was getting calls saying things such as “You deserve to die”. throughout the day and night. The calls got so bad that Guy became afraid for him and his mother, whom he lives with, life. Afraid somebody would trace his cellphone or already knew where he lived, he and his mother moved. The 49 year old man said, “I was afraid not only for my life , I was afraid for my mother’s life.”
This went on for 9 days that he received these calls. He finally got so fed up with it that he gave the phone to a lawyer. If Guy was trying to get money by handing the phone to a lawyer instead of just dropping service, he is out of luck. So far, all T-Mobile did was credit his account and he didn’t have to pay an early termination fee.
The Orlando Sentinel says that T-Mobile has retired the number and nobody will ever get that number and get these types of calls.
Personally, I find it disgusting he is still getting death threats. Yes, I agree Zimmerman did VERY wrong but please folks there is a world out their to live. Don’t spend so much time hating someone and do something constructive to society/ Hate phone calls with death threats is NOT considered constructive. I find that cell phone situation sad.
