This is most unfair to us non-antipodean flim-flam!!
ok, I feel better now.
Consider me there in spirit.
On May sixth I take the train to Chiang Mai where I will knock on doors until I can find somewhere to just sit and meditate for a month or so. Maybe things will work better after that. So, sorry about that but, as they say, dukkha happens.

Nathan, do you need help with your phone? AIS 1-2 call seems to have the best coverage in Thailand.
Yes I do. Thank you for asking.
Setting up an email account, and getting it working is hardly difficult.
Well actually it can in fact be exceptionally difficult, as when you buy an iPhone in a country where Apple doesn't actually do business and there is no such thing as a guarantee or fair return policies for faulty goods. Apparently all of the iPhones in Bangkok fell off of the back of a truck in Shanghai or some such thing. After spending over 30,000 baht on the problem the phone doesn't do anything but display the crapple logo [logo for the hacker software that actually runs iPhones in Thailand].
gmail.com will let you set one up in under 3 minutes, depending on how fast you type in your details. (and you can import contacts from elsewhere)
Then you can check your email on your mobile by calling AIS on *138 or *139 (cant remember which, but its free) and requesting a GPRS internet package
for 20 hours (costs you 107 Baht) or (50 hours for 200 baht) and they will automatically deduct the money from your phone credit. If you want you can also
call their call centre (1175) if you don't want to follow the automatic instruction route. They have an English service.
After that, you can use the internet for 20/50 hours throughout the month, and get more hours if you run out by calling AIS.
To get email on your mobile, AIS will also send you the settings you need if you haven't already got them.
Thank you. Yes, I have three AIS sim cards and about 600 baht worth of time cards. No actual functional cell phone however. Can you suggest where I can buy a cell phone that works for less than 1,000 baht?
thanks for the help
Let me know if you need help or pm me.
