  1. The + sign is used by the cellphone system. It is automatically replaced by the international access code for the country you happen to be in. For example of you are in the USA it will be replaced by 011 In Mexico and most other countries it will be replaced by 00
  2. You are correct. Creating a system image from a corrupted system is not going to help much
  3. Yes but my bank will be required to report the large deposit to the IRS
  4. Thank you! That's what I was looking for!
  5. I'm sorry I asked. I assume nobody can recommend a local US Tax lawyer, as I originally asked.
  6. My original posting was trying to locate an expert locally. I specifically said "no amateurs please" I'm more than willing to pay a tax attorney. Just got to find one.
  7. Thanks for the response. I assume your are a knowledgeable person. Are you saying that I'm not liable for capital gains tax for a foreign owned property? My US Bank is required to report large deposits to the IRS. What will they do with that information?
  8. Is there a local consultant on US taxes, relating to the upcoming sale of my home here.? I would like to find a qualified person. Please, no amateur opinions. TIA
  9. After trying with Express VPN installed on my router, I decided it was much better to have it on all my individual devices. That way I could easily disable it on my phone and not affect laptop etc. Disabling VPN installed in the router is not straightforward, and the result is disabled for everyone connected.
  10. The problem with streaming, specifically to get live TV, is that the iptv services available here (Clear Choice is the current favorite) tend to have a short life. Maybe shorter than Shaw. This is simply because they are streaming unlicensed content, and sooner or later the authorities catch up with them and shut them down. I am a current Clear Choice user, but over the past few years I have had to switch to a new service every once in a while. I don't have great expectations for the longevity of Clear Choice.
  11. I would, not only because it's a very nice place to visit, but I have many friends and relatives there. Their COVID situation is no better or worse than anywhere else. Why the snarky remark? Have you ever been there?
  12. Is there a fund where we can contribute to their travel expenses. (One way only)
  13. Yes because your modem should have been connected to your wall phone outlet, not to your phone
  14. Because Intercam just does not allow use of it's debit cards online.
