Customer Question
I live in Michigan...

I live in Michigan, but am in Canada for a few days and cannot call or text. Can you help?

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

IPhone 4 - about 5-6 years old.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Just since I crossed the border. I'm sure I've lost my international service.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Phone Expert to know before I connect you?

No, thanks.
