A little bone to pick

As much as I LOVE my new phone, I feel a little mislead.

I do not get service in the entire province of Saskatchewan, and some parts on Ontario. 

What?!?!  Seriously??  No service on the iPhone. 

When I called Bell and asked them "WTF?!?!?" they just said "we haven't expanded our network there yet, but we will, sometime.  And yes, you still have to pay for continuous coverage even though you won't receive continuous coverage.  And even though you said you traveled for a living, it isn't standard to let our customers know that there isn't service in all of Canada when purchasing the iPhone." 

Well crap.

another bone to pick - i wish my iphone sent me my emails immediately as i receive them. maybe this is a hold over from my year with a 'crackberry,' but i did get used to always being on top of my mails.

I haven't noticed that it takes a while to get my emails, and I had a bberry too. Have you looked in your settings and changed how often your phone checks for emails?

I'd be ticked too! I'm with Rogers on my iPhone...but I didn't notice if there was a gaping hole in the service map over SK to be honest.

i set mine to check every 15 minutes, but that just isn't quick enough for me!

i think i might have a problem.

You might have a little problem... But I check mine often as well, so I shouldn't throw any stones.
