This is happening at my business as well. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the phone number you're calling from, but I know it has something to do with my land-line for my business. For me it happens intermittently. I've had it happen twice over the last few weeks. I'll call my office and instead of getting my assistant I get a recording that says "This is Channel 47-4." I've called the phone company and they are looking into it, unfortunately it doesn't happen all the time so they have yet to discover the problem. Does anyone have information about this!? It's not good when someone calls my business and gets a recording for something else!

In our case we got Channel 47-4 when calling from a cell phone (ATT) to a Time Warner digital phone number. But it's been fixed for awhile, at least for us. It's a Time Warner problem.

Well I don't think it is Time Warner only. I have One Communications not Time Warner for my telephone company. I've had this happen even when calling from a land-line too.

See I believe it has something to do with One Communications and the way they route their calls. Call them immediately. Hopefully they can find this problem.
The service man that came out believed that it might be something in my building that could cause this like the alarm system or my answering machine, but that doesn't make any sense to me. For me this issue is still unresolved. It hasn't happened in a few weeks but who knows it may happen a third time.
Good luck and keep us posted!

It happened in our area last night, and it was not only our area but my husbands brother and the in laws and they live about 15-20mins away. Also yesterday the power was out forever ...and... there had to been at least 4 dozen state police not only in the area but in and around the barracks. I am convinced that it is a conspiracy!

I had the problem Wed nite with my cell but only calling 265 numbers. My home phone was fine. ATT said all fine on their end. The next day I found out a fiber optic cable had been cut and repaired.

Well, i google searched this issue and have found no amswers. I understand that it is most likely a fiber optics issue, but i wanted to know what the significance of the recording and numbers 47-4 are. Obviously an err code, but very rarely do i have suh a hard time finding am answer. Messing with telecomunications is a big deal.
I dont know why but i find it very eerie lol
There is a fiber cut in Cicero so telco routing messed up.
