  1. If you want to have a "charge your card as you go" you will have to coordinate that with the bank and authorize the automatic charges. If you simply want to pre-pay (max $2000 per payment-Max $3000 total) you can do so from the app.
  2. Install the app on your phone You can pre-pay using your CCard using the app. Also can pre-pay using Mercadopago
  3. My father was right .....Don't confuse people with the facts when their mind is made up

  5. Most farmacias sell exactly the same brsnds of medicines.
  6. I agree. You can find 5 farmacias in 5 minutes. What's the big deal that one is closed for 2 days.??

  8. This was already discussed on the Ajijic thread. OP is hoping for a different answer. Was already told product available at farmacia Cristina on the shelf. OP doesn't want to understand that you need a permit to import medicine or medical devices.

  10. They are allowed to enter the USA for a Medical appointment.Why not make an appointment in the USA with a specialist, get a return email form the DR's office? Then cancel the appointment? That's what Mexicans are doing...
  11. Wonder who is paying the domain fees ...
  12. Are you calling 800 123-2222? or using https://telmex.com/web/hogar/ ?? I just ordered a new installation with no problem.
  13. An albañil has masonry skills and is basically any worker that builds houses. What you need is an experienced Pintor or painter. There are many ways to cure salitre (which is basically natural salts) leaching from cement or mortar because the sand used in Mexico is unwashed and has natural salts. Cemex has a new waterproof cement that can be used if someone removes the old cement down to the brick.
  14. You can enter Mexico as a Residente Permanente by land or air with no problems.

  18. The conversion rate is not determined by the bank unless you accept the bank's rate if asked. The conversion rate is determined by the company that processes the transaction for your Visa or Mastercard. Look on your card and there might be a name of the networks your card uses. The ATM will have a network that matches (sometimes posted on the ATM) At the top of the "pyramid" are national networks Plus (Visa) and Cirrus (MasterCard). At the next level there are networks such as NYCE, Jeanie, Star (East and West), Mac, Quest, Pulse and others. The ATM you use has no way of cha
  19. Medicine, and medical devices require an import permit. If Aduana opens the package they will not take the time to research the ingredients (listed in English). They will deny entry. It does not matter how it is shipped (FedEx, DHL, USPS International etc) So it is a gamble. 8 or 9 out of 10 packages might clear customs inspection. If you order be ready to lose your money. Far better to take the ingredient list to a pharmacy here and see if they have something similar.
  20. If you click accept you are choosing the bank's own rate. If you click do not accept you will get the exchange rate of your card processor which will be better. Several of the different banks here are adding this option to their ATMs in the hopes of making a profit on the exchange.

  22. Some people type Temex but mean Telcel. Telcel has about 75 million subscribers and AT&T Mexico about 28 million and growing.
  23. Possibly here: https://centralmarket.com/2016/04/25/mexican-olive-oils-are-a-buttery-delight/
  24. There is little doubt that in most of Mexico especially outside of metro areas, and lakeside the actual coverage of Telcel is better with fewer blind areas. But since AT&T bought up a couple of companies they have been working to expand their network and to compete with Telcel. Both offer various options of pre-paid as well as monthly contract plans. Depending on an individuals needs one might be better than the other for pricing. When traveling in the US with a Telmex Canada/USA/ Mexico plan Telmex uses the T-Mobile network which is not always the best coverage in the USA out
