Hi Christopher,

Ummm... ok.  What in particular should we look at?  It's just not enough
to say "My program is broken: help me fix it."  We'll do what we can to
help point problems out, but we really need your help and input too.

Tell us why you think the program is broken.  Not only does that will help
focus our search, but you might find that it suddenly helps you to see the
reason that the program is breaking.

And even if we run the program ourselves, we may not not recognize the
problem that you are seeing!  That is why you need to tell us why you
think something is wrong.

>From quickly glancing at your program, I can tell you that none of us will
be able to run your program.  The definition for the 'phone' module that
you're using:

> from phone import *

is one that you've probably written.  We simply don't have that module,
and so we can't test your program yet.

Talk to you later!
