Re: iPad dropping WiFi

First of all check your router is working properly. Obliviously, if everything else is connecting with no problems, then there might be a fault on the iPad. The Wi-Fi antenna might be broken. Are you having the same problem with Bluetooth? If so this is a good sign that this is so. My son's iPhone h...

Re: Shopping around for contents insurance

My first Spanish home policy was with AXA, then I had Liberty and this year I changed to one called Reale Seguros so it might be worth looking at them. The policy cannot be in English though. No problem with any of them. The reason we changed each time was because my broker got the most competitive ...

Re: Messi

And now 4 English teams filling all the European final places, which will helped to back up my constant arguments with the Spanish that that English league is the strongest. I've never disagreed with the fact that over a few years that Spain had the best 3 or even 4 teams, compared with our top 4 te...

Re: Best Pay as You Go sim Card

You don’t say whether or not you are in Spain.
If you are, speak to your provider to see how much having an extra line would cost. Tell them your needs as some are offering extra lines for little or no cost especially as you only require basic usage.

Re: autonomo, iva for car refundable?

I have never been able to claim VAT back or even use the expense against my income tax but there is a discount for Autonomos which is taken off the price at the time of the purchase.
You need to justify the payment by showing bank receipts.

Re: On Off Internet

This is something that should be addressed as soon as people. I hardly use my landline these days so looked into getting rid of it but it turned out that the package without one costs more.

Re: On Off Internet

A quick google has thrown up some portable WIFI services for Spain. https://www.my-webspot.com/pocket-wifi-spain/ https://wifiaway.es/en/ Before roaming was free, I used to take out temporary 4g when I travelled to the UK or Ireland for longer periods. I used my phone as a router and was able to do ...

Re: amazon

As Sid says It depends on the driver. They all seem to have different criteria to what they will do. Even different drivers with the same company vary. I would say the worst is Correos. I have waited at home for something then discover a note in my post box to tell me I have to collect it from the p...

I think Messi Is a great player but I would not make him the greatest of all time. There have been many great players and my bench...

Obviously, you are correct because millions of people will be plonking themselves in front of their TVs tonight using a mouse to control their TVs.

Re: Venz 4 k streaming box ?

My original response was directed at Mr Wilding's statement 'I'm also not a fan of Android based boxes because you need an air mouse' which is blatantly untrue and misleading to the OP who may well be an Android newbie. You are being pedantic. The website advises a Air mouse but whether it's WIFI M...

Re: Venz 4 k streaming box ?

Sure a wireless mouse/ keyboard could be used and maybe that’s how you came to the conclusion that it’s king but even a mouse is very clumsy compared to a dedicated TV remote.

Especially As the Fire TV remote can control the basic TV functions such as volume and switching the TV on and off.

I agree Gordon. My wife’s extended family take it in turns to look after elderly members of the family.

Re: Venz 4 k streaming box ?

If you are looking for a low priced dedicated 4K smart TV box, have a look at the latest Fire TV dongle. Very stable and with a little know how, it's possible to side load Kodi and other Film and sports channels.
