Hello lj land. I have an odd request from the day job. We need to test some SMS (text messaging) functionality with cell phones in Europe and in Australia. We don't have any employees or contractors in either region, unfortunately. If you're willing to receive an extremely small number of SMS messages (1 to 3) in the next two days, and respond via email to a couple of simple questions about them, it would be a huge help to me in my role as SMS product manager for my employer.

Please email me at jlake(a)jlake.com if you're willing to help. It's greatly appreciated.

I'm *so* very sorry.

I think you may need this more than I do.

I'd volunteer (I'm in Australia) but I'm a lousy mobile phone user. As in, I never switch the damn thing on, so I'd probably discover the messages some weeks down the track.

My problem is that my phone number - which I've had for close to 11 years now, so I'm not changing it - is one digit off from some guy called Peter who lives in another time zone. If I DO leave my phone on I get his calls at about 5am, and that's not cheery.

Occasionally I'll switch my phone on and discover half a dozen urgent messages for this Peter guy. Come to think of it, maybe HE should change his number.
