    need tech help!

    Take it one task at a time. You are able to go to chapala.com. enter the webboard then go to the Ajijic section and then create and post and reply to this topic. All the issues you listed about your phone are easier to accomplish than this. If you dont get help. I can help in many ways. Meeting for say coffee somewhere or via email one issue at a time or I could make a video for each issue and post it on youtube for you to watch. But I am pretty sure you will be using calling someone on speaker while using the camera to take photos of text messages your sending... Millions and millions have been doing it for years now. Its all doable. So give a shout should you need it.

    We moved a bunch of boxes from storage and we brought some unwanted guests with them. I have tried several basic insecticide from Soriana and also CYNOFF (it seemed to help a little) from Toms Hardware. Need something a little stronger. Prefer a spray or powder I can mix with water. What is available Lakeside and where can I purchase it. Thanks so much in advance for any help you can provide

    I am fed up to my eyeballs with Bank of America

    My husband had BOA for sometime. They use to have a deal with santander. He now uses Capital One and Capital One 360. They have a network of ATM's here. There was one across from Wal-Mart at the casino and one over the Mountain in Oxxo at membrillos. Many others you can lookup. What he loves the most is No Foreign Transaction Fees with either account. He use to get so angry at the 3% foreign transaction fees along with the terrible rates for dollars to pesos. He says the rates gets now are somedays better than whats listed online added with the no transaction fees. He has a couple of Capital reward cards that give him cashback. They give different percentages for different things. On one I know He gets 2% for gas and groceries and 3% restaurants. I thinks its called capital one SAVOR. Anyway, he handles the U.S. banking for us and I handle the Mexican. He has changed accounts in the past like BOA when they change rules or something else that disturbs him. He keeps up with points etc. Once a year we fly ti U.S. to see his family and we have not had to buy the tickets in years. We also usually get a rental car for a week. We get free nights in Hotels etc. He does a good job for us and gets all kinds of things. He us amways getting double or triple points, getting points for more than one account on one transaction, Like Hilton honors or National Car Emerald club, Camino Real. He has even found things here like 7-11 even. etc. etc. etc. So Capital has been good to us. GOOD LUCK, I am sure that others will have suggestions. Some bank is always doing something to get customers By the way He found a neat way, I think anyway, to check currency rates. For example. Go to google.com and in the search bar type 1 usd to mxn and google will show what 1 dollar is in pesos.

    It is not good to hear so many problems. My husband thankfully has not had problems with his Military and VA checks but he will soon file for SSN. It seems, to me anyway, that the little people pay for what others with so much have caused in laundering and such. Yet I continue to read stories of all these offshore things still going on. I hope that they would put a bigger burden on those people. Withholding a SSN payment because of fear of laundering is ridiculous.

    Eye opening ATM experience

    I have seen the same thing. I was with a friend in El Paso texas when his nephew called and asked to be bailed out. He had an unpaid traffic ticket and got pulled over. So my friend offered to meet up later but I said no i want to see this. It turns out there is an ATM in the jail. Hahaha so he went to get out money and as it spit the money out an officer said something to him. He turned to see what the officer wanted and bam it sucked the money back in. Luckily i did choose to go because i loaned him the money to get his nephew out. He called the bank and they said they would make sure he was not charged he wasnt. Now another incident i had was the machine not giving any money but acting like it did. It was not an ATM from my bank and it took over 2 months to get my money back. My bank told me that if they said I got the money there was no recourse. It was a mess. They claimed i got the money. Like i said it took several months to get it back. Ultimately we requested photos from the ATM and they returned my money. I always wondered how many people got ripped off by them. I was trying to get 200 dollars and i wasnt going to let it go but wondered how many who only tried to get a few bucks just gave up. But it was interesting to find out i was at their mercy and that its not like requesting money back from fraud or returning an item etc.

    Text messages from UNOTV

    To affirm what Ferret has written. It does work. It may take up to 48Hrs as it did with one friend.. However most of the people I know who have done it said they recieved one more messages after sending the stop text and not a peep since. The most irritating thing I found was how they would send out these messages at the most bizarre times from 1 to 3 in the morning. How someone in their marketing department didnt get fired over that ill never understand.
