Spent some time today online and on the phone, switching services for our move and we hit a surprising snag. We’re only moving 4 kilometres by road and yet Bell Canada claims that we can’t retain our old phone number as the new house is in a different switching centre area. WTH?
Am not amused but I’m afraid there will be little recourse. Everything else moved smoothly except for this. Argh! Phone companies are positively retrograde!
