Re: Yoigo roaming problems

As I believe was mentioned earlier; it depends on the network that the sender is on.

As an aside, I tested O2 (in the UK) to SIMYO (Spain) and that worked fine. I'm considering switching from...

Re: Yoigo roaming problems

Just to add to my earlier reply about O2 to Yoigo text messages not being delivered, it seems that there are multiple quotes on the Internet saying that O2 have told them that they can only guarantee...

Re: Yoigo roaming problems

That's kind of odd, since I was under the impression that Yoigo used Vodafone and Movistar for GSM coverage and Movistar and it's own network for 3G coverage, under current OMV agreements, but then...

Re: Yoigo roaming problems

There appears to be a problem when sending text messages from O2 to Yoigo, when the Yoigo handset is in Spain and the O2 handset is either in the UK or in Spain. O2 numbers will always receive text...

Re: Don´t buy property in Spain or you will lose a lot of money

No offence, but Torrevieja can't be compared to Murcia (or did you mean Murcia province, in which case that is one mighty big generalisation).

The majority of building in Murcia capital is for...

Re: Don´t buy property in Spain or you will lose a lot of money

You were kinder than I would have been :)

I guess his logic is that any property above €700K preserves its value because that level of property will always be in demand. It is probably in a...

Re: Don´t buy property in Spain or you will lose a lot of money

Well probably because it's a forum ;)

The service industry also includes a lot that isn't leisure; Banking, Software and Telecommunications, to name three that spring to mind.

Re: Don´t buy property in Spain or you will lose a lot of money

Adjusting for population, Spain would have a deficit of $670 billion in comparison to the USA.

On the same basis, Spanish exports would be more fairly compared as $405 billion to Germany's $1.3...

You'd be a braver man than I, although I suspect the odds may be in your favour. Whether you can get value, is another matter ;)

You might think that, but if they never had the need to speak any Spanish (surrounded by a community of English speaking expats, serviced by tradesmen who probably spoke various grades of English,...

Re: Telefonica in English

GoNuts4Free were good when I used them a couple of years back. Bailed me out of many a time when I needed a connection whilst travelling around, at reasonable rates. Can't say if they still are as...

Re: Don´t buy property in Spain or you will lose a lot of money

Indeed, I think most people agree that quality commands a premium. It's good advice that people dismiss the idea od buying "a-dime-a-dozen" properties today and be able to sell it in the next few...

Re: Don´t buy property in Spain or you will lose a lot of money

Yes, it's true that good quality properties, in good locations, will sell and preserve their price, somewhat - but these are not the majority of properties, which are a dime a dozen.

The majority...

Re: Don´t buy property in Spain or you will lose a lot of money

Well, if we're talking about a crash similar to the 90's UK crash, then it's a crash - not stagnation, or anything else. People will be left with negative equity. Whether it matters depends on how...

Re: The 2007 Grand National

That you picked the 1st 2nd and 3rd in a 40 runner race? 1/40 x 1/39 x 1/38

That you did it twice in a row?

About 3.5 billion to 1, if I'm not mistaken :thumbsup:

Re: Don´t buy property in Spain or you will lose a lot of money

Well the bonfire is certainly piled up and lit, although the wood may be a little damp, once it catches it will certainly burn fast and furious. ;)

Re: Medical care for expat in Spain or UK?

Maybe, but if her income was/is modest, she'd probably fall inside the annual tax-free allowance. Again, explaining the situation to an English speaking Gestor would help here to avoid any pitfalls.

In the end, I watched it from an online feed courtesy of Ladbrokes. Hedgehunter was indeed carrying too much weight, or...
