Re: UK PAYG mobile providers

Wicksey, the monthly plans are PAYG - you buy a 'package' and it lasts until it runs out of credit, or at least that's what mine does. I can't remember if I've ever topped it up in the 18 months or so I've had it, if I have, then it must have been ages ago ! I don't use it for apps or downloads, and...

Re: UK PAYG mobile providers

I use giffgaff - I hardly use my phone, just a few texts & the odd phone call. I haven't had to topup since I joined them in April 2018 !
Take a look at their site -

Re: Accessing IBI bills online

Beachcomber - It just asks for the matricula, area & NIE and then gives me "Existe/n recibo/s pendiente/s de pago referente/s a los datos introducidos." I'm sure that previously it also asked for Cargo & something else that I can't remember offhand. I'm using my late husband's NIE ...

Accessing IBI bills online

I know I gave instructions on this years ago, but following my own instructions is getting me nowhere ! The web page doesn't ask me for all the details I thought I had to enter, and with what I can enter, it just comes back with 'nothing there'. I need to get this year's, as I don't think there is e...

Re: malagacarhire.com

A few years ago, we got to the airport in Malaga for our journey home, when hubby realised he'd left his jacket in the apartment, which contained his passport ! The resort was a good half hour away - I rang reception and asked them to look in the apartment which they did & sent the jacket, with ...

Re: Milky coffee

I find that on the coast I have to order cafe solo grande, con leche aparto which does the trick (I can then put a lot less milk in it !). Inland the cafe con leche is usually much stronger, and works OK for me.

I seem to recall it's your Andalucia Health number - hubby had one years ago (not that he was resident, it just made life easier for the Medical centre !)

Re: Driving from Seville airport to Torrox - advice please :)

If you are not familiar with the A45, and are driving at night, I would take the toll road south of Antequera. The A45 is very twisty & only 2 lanes, as well as a few stretches of 80 kph speed limits, whereas the toll road is 3 lanes, hardly any traffic & pretty much 120 kph all the way :-)

Re: Transferring Thunderbird folders between pc & laptop

As suspected, the download/install of 5 ipdates failed. Error code 80243004. Tried the link 'for more info' but couldn't make head nor tail of it.
Suggestions ?
