Re: ID cards for resident Brits?

Had a quick look at the website which gives a link to the one needed for an appointment. Filled in my details and was offered an choice of appointments for 3, 4 or 5th March. This is at the Torre del Mar police station. So no long waiting times for an appointment at the moment. Will probably change...

Re: La Caixa bank transfers

I don't know the exact details but a couple I know sold their house recently and had real hassles with their bank incidentally Santander who would only allow them to transfer 20k at a time every 3 days. They said it was a new "money laundering directive" that only came in the week before. ...

Re: PAYG Orange Sim

Is it using data? Not as far as I'm aware. The phone is the NOKIA 3310 and has never ever been connected to the internet. In fact not been used in any way apart from having the Spanish Sim fitted, no incoming or outgoing calls at all. Just odd to use exactly 6€ on nothing that I can see in just 10 ...

PAYG Orange Sim

I bought a new PAYG Spanish SIM from Orange 2 weeks ago and they fitted it in the local Orange shop and it cost 20 euros. A few days later I dialled the *111# to check the balance which showed €20. Since then I have not had the need to use the phone and have made and received ZERO calls and just tod...

Re: Dental implants

What!!!! €164 for an implant.......that is an utterly unbelievably low price, I'd be questioning and asking to see the materials used first. My son has just had 2 implants in U.K needed as the result of an accident, his total bill was £2,800 for both.

Re: Samsung Smart TV - change Apps region

In my case I set my LG TV to UK and like Wicksey all the UK apps appear and work (DNS installed in router) if I revert to the Movistar DNS the APPS remain but obviously do not work. The TV does not reset APPS to Spanish ones

Re: Best Android or other TV service box

The lower the better, but anything under 50 is acceptable. Anything below 30 is very good.

Am using ABP so never ever get a top or bottom bar advert. A.com itself is not a secure site yet I feel confident that my data here is not being used or compromised.

All working fine for me. No issues at all. Maybe your individual ISP has blocked and black listed them for some reason. But all running as it should via Movistar

Re: Best Android or other TV service box

My firestick is registered with Amazon UK, as are my kindles. I suspect that my Spanish prime subscription is just that, Spanish, so my UK registered firestick can't use it. Likewise if I shop with Amazon.co.uk then my prime subscription doesn't show. I really only bought the firestick as a backup ...

Long time since I looked at firesticks on the .es site. So happy to be corrected if it is now available. Mine, which was a uk purchase a couple of years ago still don't work tho', unless I use the Prime Video app.[/quote] All I can suggest is that your U.K Firestick has recognised and is using the S...
