Pranks for nothing: anonymous, international version.

For the last day, my phone has been targeted by the "have two random cellphones call each other simultaneously and see what happens when someone picks up" prank, similar to what is available through websites I won't advertise here. (Google, "have two phones call each other prank." Yes, I looked up the 4 I could find, and registered on all of them to have my number blocked....it's still happening.) [more inside]

Should I port my cell phone number to my new employer?

I've had my cell phone number for 10 years. My new employer is a large non-profit organization (thousands of employees). They'll buy me a new phone and pay for the service. They won't just reimburse me for my service plan as my last employer did. I don't really want to carry a second phone and have a second plan. It seems that if I want to take advantage of this benefit, I'd need to use the university phone as my primary phone and port my phone number over to the university. I'm trying to figure out if I should do this. [more inside]

How to deal with hours worked on my days off

I work full-time in an office of a half-dozen people (in Ontario, Canada if it is relevant). One of the duties in my current job is to reply to general emails to my company's main address and to check the general voice mail... if someone calls after hours or chooses not to be put through to an individual, they can still leave a voice mail on the main number, and the main email is info@[business].ca which gets maybe five or ten questions a day. At the request of my boss, I do these things a couple of times a day, including on weekends and holidays. I am fine with this and I understand the reasoning - sometimes people write or call with a time-sensitive question. This usually takes me ten minutes a day tops (once in while there is a bigger thing and it may be an hour on those days), but it seems not entirely fair that I do this with zero compensation for having to be available for work on my days off. How best to negotiate what might be a better arrangement for this? Or should I even bother? [more inside]

Phone/TV/Internet service you could not refuse?

I work for a smallish Phone/TV/Internet company. We believe our network is really the best available, and our service is great, but customers are leaving us at a higher rate than we would like. (not "We're doomed!" levels, but still more than we would like). We are trying to think of "outside the box" ideas to retain and potentially add customers. [more inside]
