F 1 D 0 - 2004 07 17 at 0745 Packing almost done. Just a short note. I found myself awake before 700am, and decided to dig in again. I was supposed to work before going to bed, but I just didn't have any energy, motivation, nothing. But I've got it now, strangely. Thunder Bay telephone seems to be separate from the rest of the world, and so is Thunder Bay Mobile. When we had service issues in USA, there was nobody who really knew anything. We called 611, and someone who sounded much like a call centre attendant listened but knew nothing. Here we aren't able to send nor receive SMS. We should be able to! It's a universal network, but we're not getting a sound. I called 611. "Oh, Yeah. Yup. Sorry, we don't do anything for roamers, except give them their phone calls. No SMS, no Data, no receipt of Data. Sorry." "That's no fair! Who should I phone? Your boss or Bell?" "There's only three of us here, and we all know about it, so you'd better call Bell. But with lawyers and all don't expect anything soon. Maybe a year. Maybe never." So our phones have been so silent. Nothing. That's all I know.
