  1. My address is Rio Bravo #1 on the corner of Ocampo. You can pick it up any time.
  2. I had to abandon my fish pond when I moved and don't want to throw away a good bag of fish food. Pick up in Ajijic. https://www.amazon.com.mx/Lomas-Pond-Stick-1-Kg/dp/B0153UZ574/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2DI1F0LSWA6QS&keywords=fish+food&qid=1667224555&qu=eyJxc2MiOiIzLjYzIiwicXNhIjoiMy4zOSIsInFzcCI6IjMuMDQifQ%3D%3D&sprefix=%2Caps%2C108&sr=8-1
  3. Could anyone possibly want these ancient devices before I throw them out? Stereo receiver, record player, cassette player
  4. Problem solved. Yesterday a bank employee found a quick solution to my problem of not being able to open my BBVA account on my iPhone. She went to my App Store, opened the BBVA website and I got the access I needed. Now I hope this is a permanent solution.
  5. I buy $20 pesos worth of credit once a month. For a year, I didn't think I needed to pay Telcel, and they cancelled and I had to buy a new sim card.
  6. When I turn off wifi, I don't see any way to do a speed test.
  7. It's a brand new phone. I don't use it for anything except for accessing my bank accounts. No phone calls, nothing. What's the Telcel network? The website?
  8. If I disable the wifi connection on my iPhone, the speed test shows 1 mbps. So my wifi connection to my iPhone is working for everything except the BBVA website where I need to go to get the code that will let me access my account on my PC. The only reason I have an iPhone is because I have to have one to get the code to access my bank accounts. (I have a Mexican and German bank account)
  9. I can't see my BBVA accounts when the site is inaccessible because of lost wifi connection. When I take the phone to the bank they spend minutes reestablishing the connection and tell me it's because of wifi. It then works for a couple of days and then not any more.
  10. Here's where I'm lost. I added a speed test app to my iPhone. If I manage to get the Telcel website on my iPhone with wifi shut off, do I leave the website and go to my speed test? I'm guessing the speed test wouldn't be testing the Telcel website.
  11. Thank you, Mostly. I get websites on my iPhone using Chrome, for example. My speed test for my iPhone shows 4 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload. My PC internet speed is 3.0
  12. Trouble is, when I lose the connection I take it to BBVA there's no connection there either, and the bank clerk spends minutes in settings until she solves the problem. My real question, I guess, is not how to fix it, but whether a faster internet connection via fiber optics, for example, would improve things.
  13. I go to the BBVA website on my PC. I enter my account number and password and am told the code has been sent to my iPhone. I enter the code and can now access my account. This works nicely for a few days until I can't open the bank app on my iPhone and thus cannot get the code. The bank clerks tell me it's because my phone is not getting a wifi signal.
