  1. TotalPlay is promoting their service in the Chapala/Riberas, includung passing out beautuful brocures (completely in Spanish; not a word of English) in front of Walmart. My experience in signing up for their service didn't go so hot. I backed off. I'm thinking the promotion of their service is better than actually getting the service underway. Lexy
  2. I received an email from Telmex yesterday with a notice saying that soon it would have fiber optics as part of their Infinitum service at no cost. It said to watch for their news. I'm glad. I also got a Thank-you-for-your-payment email from Telmex after paying my bill at OXXO. Plus the other day I called their number, requested an English speaker and got one, and reported that my modem was making loud noises for hours on end. That person said a new one would be delivered to me within three days. I then got an email confirming this. This seems to be a kinder, gentler Slim,
  3. Anyone subscribing to Totalplay TV for internet and/or TV channels, are you satisfied with their service, their management? Anyone who considered it, but decided not to use it? I'm having a rocky start with these people. Lexy
  4. I tried it and got page. When I started to fill in my CURP it completed the rest of it. However when I clicked on Confirm CURP the next page said Now we are registering only people "a partir 50 anos." My CURP tells them I'm over 60.
  5. Thanks, Ferret. I'll do that. Strange, but I have to admit I've gotten help that I needed from the Ajijic office. I just don't want to go there now.
  6. OK, that might be a stupid question, but please indulge me if you have the answer. I'm trying to avoid a trip to their Ajijic office to complain about a speed of 4.59 mbps, download. The speed didn't use to matter to me, but now it does. I May have to switch to another internet server for better speed if Telmex can't provide a better speed. Lexy f
  7. I finally want to get rid of my Dish Network USA. However I've been using it for so long I don't know what to replace it with. Someone mentioned Fire Stick to me. Anyone familiar with it? I watch very little TV these days. I subscribe to Netflix. And I'd want to subscribe to a news program, probably CNN. Does anyone have a word of advice on using Fire Stick for TV watching? Lexy
  8. No, Nathasha--I was trying to find out from Chapala Health Talk where coming up shots were scheduled. Today, Sunday, shots were being given in Cristina Park. I went, was helpfully given a chair in the shorter line for people unable to stand for a long time. After a wait, young guy volunteer comes by, looks at my papers and says my permanent residency copy has to show front and back. He says, sorry, no shot. I waited on chair while my friend goes for the car. Another woman comes up, looks at my papers, says fine, come with me. I can't go now, because friend is on her way back to get me
  9. When I tried to access Chapala Health Talk--which I was told on this forum had up-to-date info is where to get vaccine shots--a link said it was no longer available; it may have been removed. Anyone know if it's gone for good? Lexy
  10. How can we learn where there is a car line available in the area to wait in for a vaccine shot? I'm not physically able to stand in a line for hours and there must be many others at Lakeside with the same problem. In fact, are there advance notices somewhere about where and when shots are available? I think I've been in self-seclusion so long I got used to not knowing what's up. But now I have a need to know. Thanks for any useful guidance. . . Lexy
  11. Thank you, Alpha1. You're right about Santa Lucia. I was hoping someone had a good doctor to recommend so I don't make a "cold call" so to speak. Lexy
  12. Thanks for the replies. I want to correct something I wrote. San Antonio Hosptial told me over the phone that Dr. Ernesto Girbau Romo was no longer there and they had no contact info. In fact, he comes to their clinic every Thursday and Friday. His cel is 3334401178
  13. I saw a good recommendation for neurologist Dr. Ernesto Girbau Romo on this forum from last year, but he no long comes to San Antonio Hospital. They said they didn't have contact info. Can anyone recommend a good neurologist or neuro-ophthalmologist? My problem is double vision. My current ophthalmologists ordered an MRI, which I got yesterday. I'd like to be in the care of someone other than my current ophthalmologists. Lexy
  14. What do you do if you don't want the sinovac vaccine? If you are notified to come and do not, are you still on the list for another vaccine? Mexico is on record for being one of the least efficient in the world in handing the pandemic. So I worry right now in getting one og the better vaccines. Lexy
  15. Have you consulted with Dr. Cristina Martinez Mayorquin, a neuro-ophthalmolgist in Guadalajara? If so, would you recommend her? I'd appreciate your comments. Lexy
  16. Hi--Yes, I'm able to log on to my telmex account which shows the current bill due to be paid. Payment is due before the 9th and that will be done. It doesn't say anything about an unsuccessful direct debit payment that the Telmex email is about. My concern is losing my internet service because they are in some kind of muddle. Lexy
  17. Cedros--I always save receipts. Everyone should. Lexy
  18. I used to pay the telmex bill that was dropped on my lawn at OXXO. Much easier than standing in line in Telmex. Then the bill stopped coming. Then, because of the pandemic,Telmex began encouraging online bill payment. I tried it. It worked beautifully--until it didn't. So two months ago I went to Telmex to see if I could pay my current bill but a guard stopped me. I was directed to a machine just a few yards down the road. It took a few minutes to figure how it worked. My total due showed on screen, I shoved two 200s into a slot and got back 11 pesos in change and a receipt. I was
  19. Remind me: Weren't posters forbidden to get political? And didn't such remarks get the forum locked? Dan? I mean, Mod #2? Lexy
  20. What's the best way to get to CFE office at Zaragoza 451 in Chapala. I am in Mirasol, so wouuld go east to Chapala Lexy
  21. Ohhh, no. I am so much over 60 I haven't the energy for that. Lexy
  22. Thanks, Cedros. I think I'll do it your way. . . .keep trying. I see there was already a thread on problems on vaccine registration, so mine is redundant. Sorry. Lexy
  23. Thanks, Southland. No such luck for me. gogirl--I wasn't using any translator. I was filling in the Spanish form. On all my retries, my CURP is confirmed. But I'm unable to continue. the because of the message in Spanish that says that only people over 60 can register. But I am over 60. I welcome other advice. . . . Lexy
  24. Just had crazy problem: I filled out form to register for vaccine. It was easy and went smoothly. I was about to click submit/enviar when I lost the whole thing. So I went back to begin again. As many of you know the form says in Spanish I want to register for vaccine. I filled in my CURP. Then clicked Confirm CURP. I got message: ...solo esta habilitado para personas a partir de 60 anos. I am over 60. My CURP indicates that. So why couldn't I continue with my registration this time? Can anyone tell me what to do now? Lexy
