Minor nitpick, but he wasn't an FBI agent. They said he was with the Department of Justice, in the Office of International Affairs. Agreed that it was very sloppy for Neal to place that call. I heard the bells chiming while they were talking and immediately thought of that scene in The Fugitive where they tracked him based on the background sounds during the call. But even more unbelieveable was the fact that the pager worked in the middle of nowhere like that.
