  1. Try calling them at 1 206-266-2992 That is the Amazon customer service line. You can also try their 800 number - 1 (877) 586-3230
  2. Hi did you sell the iPhone yet?


  3. And 3 days before the 4th, the Canadian Club is holding a Canada Day event. So you can celebrate twice! Friday, July 1, 2016Canada Day CelebrationOur Club together with the royal Canadian Legion Branch #1 and 904 Wing Royal Canadian Air Force Association celebrate together at the Nuevo Chapala Club House, located at Zaragoza #731, Chapala (up the hill from the Pemex station)
  4. I went to the main Telcel office in Plaza Laguna the other day and was told that any calls I make using my cell phone with a Telcel SIM card while in the US or Canada will be free. In other words, it is the same as if I were calling the US or Canada from Mexico - free.
  5. Well...see Spencer's comment above. I would accept his advice as he is a lawyer and therefore knows the rules. And I know of people with a foreign plated vehicle who have been stopped by the traffic police in Guadalajara and questioned as to why they do not have the sticker. So while Spencer says "technically" I am not sure I would want to debate this with a traffic cop if stopped for some other apparent infraction.
  6. See the Lake Chapala Society web page - it's on the home page http://lakechapalasociety.com/weebly/index.php
  7. According to the Telcel website the MXN$199 plan includes as shown below. But it is not completely clear if there is a maximum number of minutes. Unlimitedminutes included UnlimitedSMS included 1000 MBInternet WhatsApp Facebook and Twitter $ 199.00 / m

      Sorry - I made an error in my first message. My login name is applecart.  But I want my member name "Cortland" to show when I post

  9. My Telcel plan gives me 1GB Data, Unlimited free calls to the US and Canada as well as within Mexico for a total cost of 199 Pesos per month. And I get Internet speeds of 23.6 Mbps download and 22.30 Mbps Upload, which is far better than Telmex Infinitum. I have installed the app for my VOIP service on my Android phone and can use it to make and receive calls with far superior sound quality, particularly for the other person. But competition is always good......
  10. My understanding from people who have used 1USA/AT&T is that currently the coverage outside of major centres, including Lakeside, is not good. That said, they say they will be setting up addition cellular towers etc. to provide country wide service. So if you are travelling much outside of this area and Guadalajara you may not have any service for the immediate future. That is the reason I will stay with Telcel as I want to make sure I have service in an emergency.
  11. We have had some false alarms and SOSE has always called within 5 minutes. We have also found Danny to be very responsive. When we were not at home, we know they came to check things out. Several friends have the SOSE system and have had good service. Like any other service, people will have good and bad experiences. I guess we are lucky.
  12. Here is their phone number so. you could call to find out (37) 67 65 21 41
  13. Yes, apparently the rate has increased by 50 pesos.
  14. Here is what I understand to be the only official testing station in the area. I have been there twice. The whole test only took about 10 minutes. There is a standard government set fee for this. If you go to anywhere else, you might find they charge more. Also, they may say that you need new spark plugs, air filter, etc. etc. Here are the directions: CONTROL VERIFICATION MANDATORY VEHICLE ZARAGOZA STREET #375 CENTER CHAPALA TURN LEFT AT THE LIGHTS IN CHAPALA TAKE THE SECOND STREET TO THE RIGHT THEN CONTINUE DOWN THE SECOND STREET FOR TWO BLOCKS. TURN LEFT ONTO ZARAGOZA. CONTROL IS ABOUT HALF A BLOCK UP ON THE RIGHT,
