Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I would like to ask whether, when you first entered Canada and were still in a populous region, you then had phone service.
Jasper Alberta is somewhat remote. If you were in Edmonton, you would probably have phone service, but coverage in an 'Alpine' Rockies region is bound to not be so comprehensive or present.
What phone service provider do you have for this particular phone?
