  1. Dotcalm, just sent you a postmark. We live in GV and often travel to Chapala.
  2. I have been trying and trying to make local (lakeside) calls from Chapala with no luck. I’ve used every combination that I can find online to no avail. Can anybody tell me how to make my calls? I have a U.S. cell phone, T-Mobile, and am trying to make local calls to Mexican cell phones and Mexican landlines. TIA!
  3. We will be traveling to Chapala later this month from Tucson, Az. I am very familiar with driving in Mexico as we lived in Chapala for eleven years. Instead of going through Nogales we are considering Presido, Tx. Has anybody done this after the latest post above? What were the road conditions? Did you spend the night somewhere or did you drive straight through? Thanks in Advance!!
  4. Help. Looking for hotels that will accept my dog, about 20 lbs. My internet search has found nothing. Navojoa is preferable. TIA! ,
  5. I am getting extremely tired of my telmex internet going down numerous times per day. I have heard about poor telecable internet service but at this stage of the game I am willing to try another provider. I have had telmex to the house, i have had the guy, can not recall his name, come out and track down my line and found no problem. Uggg, just getting tired of this. MY QUESTION, can anybody in Chapala Centro provide their telecable experiences, good as well as bad. What speeds do you get and what is the reliability? TIA.
  6. Yes, pressing 1 gets to voice mail on my phone, in spanish is the problem. I need to know what numbers, and in what order, to use to set up a voice mail message, how to retrieve the message and then to delete the message.
  7. Need help please, in setting up my voice mail. I have a Mexican AT&T account and would like to use voice mail. I would like to set up a “leave me a voice mail” message and then of course listen to it. I have an IPhone but I don’t think that matters. Any help will be appreciated. TIA.
  8. I have used them using Tricare and Tricare for Life for my insurance. I used them for PT and some minor ailment. I had no problems and they billed my insurance.
  9. Awhile back somebody posted a number for a non telmex person who would trace down your telmex line looking for problems. I have done several searches and am unable to find his. Umber. Can that somebody please repost. I am so tired of up and down internet conection I am willing to try anything.
  10. The 599 package, i believe I was told up to 20 mbs. That is of course with phone.
  11. I have been following any and all comments on telmex internet speeds, problems, etc. I live in Chapala centro, right next to the American Legion. My internet often, three times or more per day, goes down for a few minutes or more at a time. I have to reset and then hope that it comes back up. I have noted several conversations on this board stating that the Arcadyan dual band would not get more than 10mb download. As you can see from the pics below I get more than 30 mb down and good upload speed. Now to my question.... is my router having problems since it goes down so many times per day or is it just Telmex, other people in my area do not seem to have so many outages. If I do go for a new router will I trade reliability for speed? any responses will be appreciated.
  12. I use unblockus for a vpn. As of last night unable to get Hulu, Amazon Prime or U.S. Netflix. I contacted support, they gave me new dns settings. Still have the problem. Anybody else with unblockus having a problem? Support for my problem has been great, hopefully they will get it going

  14. Makes sense now. Couldn't see the forest for the trees. Thanks!!
  15. Thanks all for your responses. After posting this I did a direct hookup; modem to roku to tv. I am having good success with this but do not know if it is using the 2.4 or 5 band going to the roku. I have looked at all categories within the settings of my roku and no mention of which band is connected directly to the roku from the router. Previously, when I was wireless, the roku indicated I was connected to the 2.4 band. BtD, attached is a pic of the back of my modem if you don't mind providing a bit more detail. Previously I did access my modem, prior to your post, but could not find where to change to na or mixed from my inter net searching. Can not agree with you more about not needing a smart tv if you have a roku, at least for my needs of IPTV, Netflix, etc.
  16. Does anybody know how to get my Roku4/Roku Premier+ to recognize my 5ghz band on my Telmex router. I have done some searching on the web but it seems complicated to me. I get a very strong signal on the 2.4 band but would like to use the 5ghz for less interference. My router is next to my tv so distance is not a problem. Any help would be appreciated.
  17. Has anybody been having problems with their internet connection in Chapala Centro? I live just two blocks from the servers on Morelos I am getting great speeds most of the time (I have the up to 40mb package) but the outages I am experiencing are becoming quite annoying. I have called telmex several times but the problem remains. The outages are mostly mid to late afternoon, good connectivity in the mornings and evenings. The outages usually correct themselves within minutes. I am using the connection for normal computer type operations (email, surfing, etc.), netflix and streaming tv. Streaming tv and netflix works great at night. All of this tends to make me think the server is just overloaded during the afternoon.
  18. Any suggestions on places to get motos and bikes serviced. Preferable in Chapala. Thanks for any suggestions.
  19. I too have an Iphone 5. I don't know what your software issues are but mine are; will not connect to blue tooth devices,and the time is always incorrect except for the when I set it and only then until it goes into a sleep mode. I have done some online investigation regarding these problems and it seems to be a problem on certain models such as the 5S. No know fixes for these problems (anybody out there have a solution?). My Iphone was unlocked....perhaps this may have caused my problems but I don't think so. I can not help with reading the text except to advise to go into the settings and enlarge your text size. Good luck.
  20. My auto and home Insurance will be coming due soon. All companies I have had in the past have always quoted me in USD's and have wanted a U.S. check for payment. Can anybody tell me why I am not given a quote in pesos? I must add I have never asked to pay in pesos since they asked for a check in dollars.
  21. I am Medicare and Tricare for Life eligible. I recently used Lakeside medical for PT and they billed TFL for the services. I have not yet seen the EOB, when I do I will share the results.
  22. Started reading this post again and noted my previous error, here is tonight's speed. Located in Chapala Centro just near the Americal Legion. I pay for the 10k package.
  23. On Morelos near the American Legion in Chapala. Paying 599. upload...19.7. Download 5.4 I get about 12 upload on a normal day, I think nobody is online tonight, they are all out for the Holy Days.
