I don't know how to resolve this PHP Script error

Posted on 2006-11-15
Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2008-03-06
The message I'm getting is:
Parse error: parse error, unexpected ':' in /home/content/s/c/o/scoard/html/php_uploads/natmailscreenpop.php on line 10

The script I'm using is:
/* natmailscreenpop.php - This script should return a web page depending on the phone number dialed */
if (is_null($channel)) {
  printf("No channel data was given");
else {
  switch ($channel) {
    case ‘18669343739’:
       header(‘Location: http://www.coard.com/natmailscreenpop.htm’);
       header(‘Location: http://www.coard.com/nriascreenpop.htm’);

Any experts help would be greatly appreciated as this script was provided to me by a web based telephony solution provider.  Therefore, I'm NOT a PHP expert.

Thanks in advance!

in both of these line you used backtick (`) you should use quotation mark (')
