My contact information has been revised. Mainly, this is about swapping the primary and secondary contact numbers. Both are cell phones but I’m finding that in a majority of places—this includes Sonoma County, Marin County, the East Bay, and the Peninsula—where I go often, AT&T offers better mobile data coverage overall than Verizon. It’s not 100 percent by any means. If you fail to reach me on one number, by all means, try the other.
