Seeing as you seem to want to derail.
My phone is a USA number but I live in B.C. It is a number via Skype!
I paid a one-time activation fee for the number. Now I pay <$5 per month, for unlimited FREE CALLS long distance, anywhere in NorthAmerica, 24hrs/day, 7days/wk. (we easily rack up 60hrs. of long distance each month). Price I'm paying for everything is approx. 1/10th the cost of a regular Telus landline here, with limited features & no long distance.
It goes thru a separate modem hooked up to my cable internet. Computer does not have to be turned on for phone to work.
I've also purchased a handset for it. The reception on this thing is incredible. I can go up 3 floors & to the opposite end of the building I'm in, go into an apt. and be in far back room behind many walls... & reception is still excellent! I can even take it outside & over to my neighbour's house across the street (distance of maybe 150'-200').
Do ya think I need an upgrade? Is there a better deal out there I can get my hands on?
Seems like you want to bring up a comment about the cellphone I was using awhile back (still using it actually). Not sure why? Do ya think this is buggin' me? (or is that the intention?.... if not then what is?).
It's a borrowed cellphone from a close friend. He's down in Calif for 6mos. & doesn't need it. I needed it because I let mine (which I rarely use) to my partner who has gone to visit her mother (because she has had another stroke & is dying). The borrowed phone was for emerg. calls from them, if they happened to be rushed to the hospital... I wanted to be informed.
I had it set so it would ring very loudly outside but unfortunately some other b.s. settings were clicked on as well (incl putting incoming calls on hold for some fk'd up reason??). This is the phone that Stars called me on that day... reason being, my number on my account was my cellphone (which I'd lent out) & can't give them my home phone because it is a US number (US area code). There's actually been pokersites I've been blocked from when signing up to them due to the USA area code phone number be auto-blocked via computer.
So there ya have it.
Question... back on topic.
How were you able to fund a Moneybookers account with a GiftCard? And if you funded poker account with GiftCard first instead, how were you able to withdrawl to Moneybookers from that account without having made a deposit via Moneybookers first? I'm asking because I wasn't able to do this when I signed up for my account. They would only take a personal credit card or a 'bank-wire'. I chose the bank-wire for obvious reasons (my bank account is now verified with them & I'm able to ship the moniezz back to my account from Moneybookers).
I'm just curious as to how you're able to do it (so that I can recommend that method to my friends in the future if they dont' want to bother going thru the bank-wire & address confirmation procedure... which can be quite lengthy... it took me almost 4wks. before my account on MB was good to go).
