Canadian Cell Number (so-called) Portability

For all you Canucks in the crowd who are excited about the fact that you can finally take your cell number with you when you change providers up here in Canada, I suggest you wait until all the Telco help desk people have had a chance to screw up at least once in this area and learn the right way to do things. I’m not sure how long this will take, but believe me, it is worth the wait.

Otherwise you might end up like me – a girl who, at the beginning of this week had two cell numbers, one forwarded to the other – and who now has no cell numbers that actually ring through to the cell phone sitting on her desk.

It’s awfully quiet around here. That’s all I can say.
