  1. I am very sorry to hear that. He helped my a lot when I was still in Canada trying to figure out which way I was going to go with my TV viewing.
  2. I know it's early after the border announcement today BUT has anyone traveled across the Mex/US border on there way to Canada ? I can't find anything online. I know I can get into Canada but not sure about Mex/US border. TIA
  3. You are required to sign an agreement stating that you will self isolate.
  4. Hi Suzy It's John. Did you stop at Mazatlan for the 1st night on your way back up or did you drive further north for your 1st night? I would like to get to San Carlos without having to drive the 9 1/2 hrs from Mazatlan. Also will you be back before I leave on the 23rd so I can return the box ? Cheers
  5. After searching and trying a few VPN's I have found and tested StrongVPN.com and it works with Telus Optik TV. Might work with Shaw.
  6. Hola Has anyone found a VPN that works in Mexico to fool Telus Optik TV where I am. I have tried 4 different ones without success. Express, PIA, Nord, Bullet Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  7. I would like to suggest that you read my post of Cellular Signal Boost. It is a world of difference.
  8. I have not tried it with a modem but there should not be a problem at all. The Telcel service with the modem runs on the same principle as using my phone as a hotspot. As long as you have a Telcel internet plan you could use the modem that comes with it. I plan om bringing a modem down in Sept and I am sure it should work.
  9. Hola I thought I would update this post with some information that might be helpful to someone. I purchased a Panda Networks cellular signal booster which are made in Mexico. I did a lot of research and for ease and trying to keep it being purchased in the country I am a guest in I chose Panda Networks. It came from Queretaro and it came quickly. It was $7200 pesos and well worth it. Well I couldn't be happier. I live in San Nicols de Ibarra and I was using my phone as a hotspot as well of course just regular day use with 3G and a download average of 2.0 upload .03. I now have 4G and a download of 75-85 mbs and 12-15 mbs upload. I can stream with NO buffering at anytime during the day or night. I have it mounted on my 2nd story roof on a 4m pole. I hope this may help someone as information about how effective cellular signal boosters are is very limited. John
  10. Thanks chapalence The problem I am having is Google Play says the apps are not available in my country. My phone is a Canadian phone but I have the Telcel PPD sim so I don't understand why I can't get them. I have checked and reloaded on Chrome though.
  11. Thanks I didn't know about that.
  12. I've searched this but the closest year that comes up is 2011 When I go to check my Telcel Amigo ppd plan and put in the *133# it always text back that I have a 0$ balance as well as mins and data. Example, I purchased the 500$ peso amount with 6000 mb plus a 6000 mb bonus. When I go to check my balance the next day it says 0$ on mb, phone and text Can someone help me get my head wrapped around this ? TIA
  13. I came down through Nogales to Lakeside 1st week of January, my first time and with the great help of RickS and had absolutely no problems at all. Being my first time I was a little surprised by how many toll booths there were and how many were manned by Mexican citizens and I mean locals not government employees. Just gave them a few pasos and on our way
  14. Thanks all Very much appreciated.
  15. Hola Searched the site and couldn't find anything on this so I will ask. I have windows with hard water stains on them. They have been stained for 2 years. I have tried the water and vinegar solution, even with 0000 steal wool and it's not coming off. Do any of you very wise people know where I can find a product here that may work ? I have found some products on Amazon mx but I don't seem to be able to use my Amazon prime Canada for free shipping. The shipping is just about the cost of the product. TIA.
  16. Hola Are you allowed to import a cellular signal booster into Mexico ? Not a wifi extender.
  17. I am wondering if anyone here has used some type of cell signal booster. Do they work or are they not worth the money. I only get Telcel 3G which is weak and would like to boost the strength. I know it won't get me to 4G. TIA
  18. It doesn't look like HarryB is interested in my CPAP machine. Before I leave is there anybody else ?
  19. Looks beautiful. When I finally get to Chapala next month I will have to do this. Thanks for the post !!
  20. HarryB I am leaving in 4 days if you are interested in the CPAP machine
  21. I am glad that you found rentcars.com to be good. I was very pleased with their prices and the guys at Mex rental cars were fantastic.
