  1. I have a very good friend who ws forced to move from here to Florida because his copd was getting so bad he literally could not breathe
  2. can't help you with calls back to the U.S. as we never did that. Regarding email, we used local wifi so it did not use our 4g data. I recommend you go to Telcel and discuss these questions as they might depend on whether you are on a plan or not. As I mentioned, we just load pesos as we need them and heavily load up before we leave the U.S.
  3. We were in Basil, Switzerland last September and used our Telcel card and it worked just fine. It automatically switched from Telcel to T Mobil. Then as we moved up the Rhine and Mosel rivers it automatically switched to Orange and we used it as far as Amsterdam. We have UNLOCKED smart phones with no Telcel plan. We just load about 500 pesos on each phone prior to leaving.

  5. I plan on leaving my car at the GDL airport for five days and was wondering if anyone out there knows what the recent per day costs are for on site parking. I do not want to use off site parking so if you have any recent experience with this I would appreciate the information. Thanks
  6. You are right. The one they gave me says Passport application and the one I printed says passport renewal application! Thanks
  7. Tiny, Thanks for the reply. Do you know how much the FedEx fee is ?
  8. Spencer, do you do passports(i.e.) take people to the consulate ?
  9. Hi Tiny, Tried to send you a pm but it wouldn't let me. I just want to verify that I can use my credit card at the Consulate for my passport renewal. Also, I don't understand about the FedEx portion of your message. I did not plan to use FedEx just have the passport sent to my mailing address in the US. Can you clarify ?
  10. I was finally able to print DS-82. I will go to the consulate so I can use my credit card. Thanks for your help!
  11. This message is to those of you that have renewed your U.S. passport at LCS. I went there the other day to get the forms to renew both mine and my wife's U.S. passports and they gave me form DS-11 which has the golden outlines on the front of the form. Later on I read that this form is for those people for whom this is a first time adult renewal or is a child and that I should use form DS-82. Has anyone had previous experience with passport renewal at LCS and did you use the form with the golden outlines on the front of the form. Will the consulate accept this even though I have had previous renewals ? Thanks
  12. Hi Oregontochapala, I appreciate your input and I do agree with you. After reviewing all of the costs and time involved with doing it here we have decided to go to Guadalajara. We have a person that will schedule an appointment for us and take us there. I do have a few questions I hope you can answer however. Do we need to bring our own photographs or do they take them at the consulate ? What else do I need to bring ? Proof of residence ? Mexican visa ? Anything you can think of!! Thanks
