    The front page appears to be ok. But click anything and I get a 500 error.

    Just dialed Radio Shop Supply at the RangerUSA/Ranger Communications Inc and got a recording that stated hours of operation. That wouldn't happen if they were closed down.

    OK I get an error only when on my phone but not when on my laptop at home. Even get the error when I request to load the desktop version on my phone but the laptop work fine every time. Weird.

    Just got the straight poop from Radio Shop Supply. The original RCI office closed 3 years ago and now RSS is the official wholesaler.
