Re: Revolut card.

Just had a look, the UK Stirling account still has a sort code and account number for transferring stirling between Nationwide and Revolut. Flipping Stirling to euros will be an internal Revolut action, there has been no mention of charges for this yet.

Re: Revolut card.

When I transfer stirling from my UK Bank to Revolut I use the sort code and account number not the IBAN, which is just basically a transfer between UK Banks.

Re: Travel form to Spain

The forms seem to require a flight number, mandatory, so if driving what does one enter.

Re: UK mobile number in Spain

I don't think you can have a UK mobile number using a Spanish service provider. I would love to be proved wrong as I have to keep a UK mobile number, from a UK service provider, to satisfy the requirements of my UK Barclays bank mobile app. Cheers Gerry I only have a Spanish sim, but my Nationwide ...

Re: Permanent residence

While in the UK last year I was admitted to hospital as an emergency and had excellent treatment, at the time I didn't have a copy a my S1 so one hospital just checked with Newcastle. I also signed on with a local doctor without any problem, since I have obtained a copy of my S1.

Re: Form S1

That was the E111. The E101 was to do with social security payment. You can apply for the S! from NHS Business Services Authority. You should keep your S1 form copy as you will need that it you want to return to the UK for NHS treatment, even if you do not intend to remain in the UK. Sid On a recen...

Re: Strange email event

I received an email to my Outlook account from the Austrialian postal service informing me to expect a delivery to a New South Wales address, a few days later they informed me the item had been delivered. We live in a strange world.

Re: Sky box problem

I live just over the boarder in Alameria and can't get ITV on 103, which is the hd transmission, try 803 the sd transmission. The old Sky box receives ITV on 103, but it is the sd tramsmission.

Re: Netflix USA

I had no problems with Netflix using Smarty DNS about 6 weeks ago. Had been using Smart DNS after the problems with BBC iPlayer on Smarty but changed back out of interest to see if there were any problems with iPlayer. Had no problems with any services but reverted to Smart DNS as I preferred using ...

Re: Netflix USA

A lot of VPN suppliers are blocked by Netflix including Smarty's. Setting up your router with the Smarty DNS settings should work, it did when I used to use them.

Re: VPN for BBC iPlayer

I use SmartDNS at home and for travelling PrivateVPN as it unlocks Netflix which SmartDNS's VPN doesn't.

Re: SmartyDNS

Hi Mark,
It's not that I prefer one more than the other, both have certain benefits. However on Netflix I only get the option for the US site. I spoke to their support and he said they don't unblock UK Netflix. If that is not the case I stand corrected.

Re: SmartyDNS

Like many other I subscribed to Smart DNS, which has proved very reliable. The slight drawback is the access is to Netflix USA, which has some releases much later than the UK version and for that reason I may renew my subscription with Smarty when up for renewal.
