    I use thunder tv supplied by a local guy. No buffering  all US stations, sports

     NBA,MLB,NHL,NFL and more, many movie channels. When my sprockets screws up which is ofte, thunder work.

    Who is the local provider for thunder tv? And what's a sprocket in this context?

  2. I have Telcel's Amigo Sin Límite plan and starting about 4-5 days ago, when I receive a text message, I get the same text 6-8 times. When I ask the sender if they sent the same text that many times, the answer is always "no." Is this issue happening to anyone else? Thanks.

  3. My CFE bill is in the landlord’s name. I have Telmex in my name and it’s the only thing I’ve been able to use as proof of address for items such as driver’s license, bank accounts, etc. A lease or bank statements aren't accepted. I’m thinking of switching to Total Play, but don’t want to lose the benefit of having a proof of address. Anyone have luck using Total Play monthly bills for proof of address?

  4. Another vote for Intercam. One negative, I'm unable to use their debit card on many online sites, but other than that Intercam has been great. @Ferret Does HSBC's ATM charge you a fee when you use Intercam's debit card?

    @timjwilson I didn't realize XE allows users to stipulate an exchange rate for a transfer and does the transfer when the rate is reached. I use Wise and I don't think they have that feature, so I will need to give XE a try. Thanks for the tip.

    Because it is Mexico and because there are 'dimwits' at the offices, I would take this up with someone like S&S who handles titles on a daily basis. 

    true, there are dimwits here, NOB, everywhere. But here, when a worker provides a completely illogical answer, I’ve learned thru experience that it can be a request for an “incentive” payment. I’m not a fan of incentive payments, but sometimes have no other option.

    Consider a Wise or even DolarApp account (por qué no los dos?), using only your Mexican address and denominated in pesos. Costs nothing...


    I already have a Wise account and its a USD denominated account (I opened it before I move here) and unfortunately Wise does charge a fee to use their USD denominated debit card outside the U.S. Fee is approx. $3.15 USD for a 500 USD transaction and $6.30 for $1000. See https://wise.com/us/blog/4x-cheaper-than-bank-cards. I'll need to investigate if I can convert my account to a peso denominated account. Has anyone done that?
