Happy days are here again!

I can send and receive text messages! Yay! Yay! Yay!

Non-Filipinos may not understand precisely how important text
messaging is. Heck, even with a Net connection at the lab, I _still_
didn't feel quite connected until I sent my first text message and got
back a reply.

Whee! Whee! Whee!

Canadian cellular providers all suck. Fido sucks less than the others
because it actually allows me to use my Nokia cellphone to text the
Philippines for CAD 0.20 (although the guy warned me that cell
providers in the Philippines might drop text during peak seasons like

Rogers is also a GSM provider, but they said they can only text to
around 10 countries. (Which doesn't make sense, because Fido and
Rogers are practically the same company now…)

None of the providers will let me send e-mail from my phone. =(

But I'm so desperate for some kind of connectivity that I'll settle
for text.
