cab companies with black cabs?

I left my blackberry in a black taxi last night. I'd like to attempt to recover it but don't know where to start. The driver has the phone as he attempted to call me back at the payphone I was calling my blackberry from - don't think he knew how to answer it, but he probably saw the incoming number on the display. Unfortunately the pay phone wouldn't accept incoming calls, could hear him but he couldn't hear me.

Now I'm going to try calling a few cab companies to see if anyone dropped it off at lost and found. Thing is I have no idea which cab co it was, all I've got to go on is that the cab was black.

Where should I start? Will my phone ever come back?

amassador taxi is black i think

and IMPERIAL taxi is so dark navy blue that it could easily be mistaken for black.

ambassador taxi isn't a company. it's a program through the city where you take extra training on vehicle care and maintenance, customer service, servicing people with disabilities etc. and then you get to have an ambassador cab which will supposedly make people want to take your cab instead of other people's cabs.

do they still pick up random fares off the streetside? or do you have to make a special call to arrange a pickup?

they still pick up random people.

i don't totally get what the big hoopla is over having an ambassador cab. cab drivers have to pay like $1000 for the course, and then they get a plate to go on the cab saying ambassador taxi. weird.

mabie they get to charge more once they've attained ambassadorial rank?

and free carwashes perhaps?


i'm convinced... from now on, it's ambassador or bust for me! :)

nah... they don't fool me... with their 'special badges' and clean black cars.


the inner struggle continues.

you don't pay more!

the cabs are just tres well taken care of, and the driver is supposed to be a customer servicer extraordinaire.

that rots!

maybe try sending yourself some email messages with:

IF YOU FIND MY BLACKBERRY
CALL ME AT 416-XXX-XXXX

in the subject if you haven't already. maybe whoever has it will take a look at your message list.

Was thinking about doing that but the cabbie turned it off by the time I got to a computer. So now he really won't be able to do much of anything since there's a SIM password that he'd have to guess when turning it on.

Just going to bite the bullet and get another one. Merde.
