When Junior Alexander Guy activated the first cell phone he ever owned, he began receiving hundreds of threatening, harassing and accusatory phone calls around the clock. The calls would declare, “You deserve to die. You murderer!”

Guy, when he bought his first cell phone, was given the old number of George Zimmerman by T-Mobile. Zimmerman shot and killed teenager Trayvon Martin back in February in what he claims was self-defense in a Florida neighborhood.


Zimmerman’s phone number, 407-435-2400, was released when his call to 911 was released to the public. Zimmerman decided to change his number and when he got rid of it, Guy, who is 49, wound up with the number on May 7. From May 7 to May 16, Guy received close to 70 calls threatening him and declaring him a murderer. Guy handed over his phone to a lawyer and demanded he be compensated by T-Mobile for his distress. T-Mobile refused to compensate him because it claims he received a new number and a credit on his bill. The company then took Zimmerman’s old number out of rotation in order to avoid future customers from being threatened.

Zimmerman was charged with murder after he shot and killed Martin, 17, during a scuffle on February 26. Martin was unarmed at the time. Zimmerman pled not guilty to the charge and has returned to jail after his bond was revoked recently.
