  1. Everyone, Sorry I don't know the name of my plan. I started the plan at the phone store next to Alex's Pasta Bar. Lady named Ana runs it. You can get various data packages. I got a cheap plan for $229/month for 1 gig data and unlimited phone and texting. The plan is good for calls and data in MX, USA, and Canada. Supposedly Facebook and Twitter are free in all 3 countries and don't count against your data, but I found this not the case in the US. Originally, I believe I had to sign up for an 18 month contract. Now I'm on a month to month. I pay monthly using a US credit card and the mi Telcel app. Mainecoons, when in CO I didn't download or stream movies but I was constantly on my phone checking emails, Facebook, Utube, uploading photos, looking at maps, getting local info. I tore through data like I was home on wifi. I went thru 16 gigs of data in 19 days, then my billing month ended, and I had to give up the remaining 4 gigs. So I bought 4 more gigs for the remaining 5 days of my trip.
  2. Here's what I do. Get the mi Telcel app on your phone. This is how I pay my monthly Telcel bill. I have a cheap plan where I get my phone plus 1 gig of data monthly since I'm usually on wifi. When I visit my cabin in Colorado I get a compatible AT&T phone signal from a nearby tower, but there's no wifi. To get data I get on my mi Telcel app, scroll down to internet, where I'm shown how much data I have used. Just underneath this it says "I want more data". Click on arrow to the right. This page has buying more data options. Click to move to the right again. Same more data options, but on this 2nd page you're buying for just one month, not for future months. My last visit to Colorado I opted for the 20 gigs of data package for $599 pesos. It showed up on my phone quickly. Its good till the end of your billing period. At the end of my billing period, I got my regular bill plus 599 pesos. Easy. But my trip wasn't over, so I got 4 more gigs for the last few day. On my next bill on mi Telcel, I was charged for my regular bill plus 149 pesos. Hope this helps.
  3. Yep, still down at my place in Centro Ajijic.
  4. My net has been down for 11 hours now. Heard it's down in SJC since 815pm.
  5. 2700 tokens? Where on the Ajijic malecon do you pick up a token?
  6. Finally got my new unrequested Telmex modem delivered. For a few days same old/same old. Tonight I did my regular speed test. What happened? My down speed doubled, my upload speed went up 10x. New speeds: 17.2 down, 4.25 up! Same 389 pesos/month. Did I miss something from Telmex? Any one else?
  7. Of course 15 minutes after posting the power is back.
  8. No power for 13 hours now. On Hidalgo 2 blocks west of Ajijic Plaza. Come on CFE get with the program.
  9. Well, my internet is down again. 3pm sharp I lost my signal. 6 Corners area.
  10. Can someone give me an idea of what a 5 gallon bucket of the red roof sealant might cost? How many coats would a roof in pretty good shape need? Vague I know, but trying to get some idea of costs. TIA
  11. Internet down at 430pm in Central Ajijic, on Hidalgo 2 blocks west of Plaza.
  12. Yep, finally back on around 630pm. Just downloaded 9 movies off Netflix for the next 2 or 3 times the internet is down.
