    Thanks for the tip. Ferret. I could try by cutting one of the pills in half and going from two times 50 or 100 to 1 and 1/2 times 50 and only taking 75 mg. I read this just in time.

    Thanks again.

    Regarding "discontinuation effects" of Tramadol, go slowly tapering down. The withdrawal symptoms for that drug are very rough and varied. I struggled with that for a long time until I finally got off. I didn't realize that I was taking the 200's until well on the way into dependency.

  2. As I see it, most of these stolen cars are for the black market used by body shops. The most common and plentiful cars provide a large market for body and other parts. High end European and American cars not so much. Mainly, driving an expensive car presents the driver as a mark for robbery, kidnapping, car jacking and other crimes. It is mystifying to me that some expats can't overcome the need to stand out. I have read that these kind of crimes are more prevalent in Guadalajara.

    You misunderstand. I didn't say anything about carrier service. You said you swapped SIMs and it still didn't work, which means it is a physical problem with the phone, and you should take it into a TelCel or other cell phone store where they can fix it. But now you have introduced a heretofore-hidden wrinkle by saying your service is U.S. Verizon, so there really is no easy way to tell you what to do.

    Yeah..sorry for the lack of clarity. Between online tech support conversations with Verizon and Apple it got a little muddy. After the sim card swap and taking the screen off to check the sim tray to see if it was out of alignment from a possibly bent frame, consensus is a hardware problem. Bottom line, upgraded to a new phone from Verizon. Had it shipped to our home in California and will pick it up there on the next trip back. Probably next week or so.

    Several years ago, Verizon phones from the states did not work here because they used a different frequency or something. I know that when up north with my iPhone 6, I connect only to AT&T or T-Mobile because ithey also have sim chips compatible with Telcel.

    My Telcel Sim Chip compatible iPhone simply doesn't work with Verizon technology or it didn't the last time I asked.

    We have been using both Iphones here since early May. Both have the original sim cards that came with them when new. No problems calling local or to California except for mine which failed a few days ago. My wife's works as usual.

    When that happens to me in the US using my Telcel phone  I put the phone in airplane mode, let the cell carrier ID disappear and then turn airplane mode off. The phone searches for a cell carrier.

    Thanks John, I have tried that several times. There is an issue with the Iphone 6 regarding loss of service. I googled it and went through several "fixes" trying to get it working. Looks to be a phone hardware problem. Ebay has many repair "services" for it. I am due for a phone upgrade from Verizon so looking into that and getting here to Lakeside.

    Switch SIM cards between the two phones and see if the problem "stays with the phone or follows the SIM card"....

    To my knowledge there is no "Telcel landline' service at Lakeside. Did you mean TelMex?


    Sorry Telmex for the landline. Telcel is the service our cell phone connects to. I swapped Sim cards and the problem remains the same. 

  8. Is there any reliable Iphone 6 repair person Lakeside? I have "no service" indication on the screen and can't make or receive phone calls. Text, internet, mail all ok. Did all the steps found on Google without success. Installed a known good SIM card from another Iphone 6 and still no service. The other phone works fine on same account.

    Yes if you want US Netflix.   My LTE hotspot does about 40mb/s down and 8mb/s up.   Fastest internet by far in the area.   Not cheap though.   I pay T-Mobile $95USD for unlimited LTE but that includes only 14 Gigs of hotspot data.  I use telecable until speeds slow to unusable ( with too many subscribers ) then switch over to hotspot.   T-Mobile's normal $75 plan is unlimited data but hotspot is at 3G not LTE.

    Thanks for the replies. Is there a cell phone option in Mexico that offers unlimited hot spot data? If so who and what costs?

  10. I am looking for a plumber/pool/spa repair person to fix some plumbing leaks on our small pool. English speaking would be helpful. The PVC filter water pump inlet and outlet fittings appear to have been installed with minimal or no pipe thread sealant. These are leaking and have been for awhile. The filter pump pipe connections will need to be removed or replaced and sealed. We are on the Libramiento in San Antonio. Looking for quality repairs. Any recommendations? Thanks.

    Lost dog.  It is not your email address you use to recover the password.  It is the number at the top of the form (receipt) that they gave you.  Joyce

    Here is the password recovery page. It asks for the number you describe and an email address to send a new password. My number and email address doesn't work for this option.
