Bell and Telus not working on Waterloo Campus

The University of Waterloo Campus is a dead zone for Bell and Telus Cell Phones. It’s so bad that it seems you can’t even get a single bar of service no matter where you are on the campus. If you happen to know any little pockets where you can find some signal, post in the comments so the rest of us can check our texts without having to head to the plaza (we found that once you are in the university plaza you can get a few bars again.)

This problem seems to have just started September 2010. There are a few rumours of people getting out of their contracts for free (instead of paying the usual $300+ cancellation fee) by claiming that since they are on campus the majority of the time and they do not get service, they should not be forced to pay their bill. Rogers still has perfect coverage of the campus.

Last week we went to the Bell store in Conestoga Mall to complain about the lack of signal, but we mostly just got smart-ass remarks “well we can’t just go and build a new tower overnight…” They did recommend pulling the battery and sim card – claiming that after you put them back in and boot your phone you should have service for a few minutes. We tried this, but had no luck…

A Better Quest Schedule/Calendar | Print and Save Universtiy of Waterloo Calendar

This guide explains how you can save your University of Waterloo Quest Calendar to a file (html, or Excel)

Quest sucks, and the worst part has to be the calendar. First of all, why does it take 12 clicks to find it? (it’s under enroll if you were wondering… ya, because my CURRENT courses should be listed under enroll… obviously..) What’s even worse is how impossible it is to save the calendar – you can’t… even if you save the html page it doesn’t come out right. You also cannot print it properly.

The geniuses over at Fix This Face have come up with an awesome system that lets you view, save and print your calendar in a simple and user-friendly way. You can view it right on the page and print it to a perfectly sized file, or you can save your quest calendar to an Excel file.

Just login and in 25 seconds, you have your calendar ready to go. It only takes 25 seconds the first time, once you’ve logged in once, your calendar will be saved to the system and can be accessed instantly at any time.
