Re: Mobile phone scam

Hi Bob, we had something similar happen. We have an ancient dumb phone, and accidentally got/were given a Vodafone bundle of data (lots) and minutes (few) when we topped up 10 euros. We didn't/couldn't use the data, and quickly used the few minutes and then had to top up again. We've found dialling ...

Re: White goods

Maybe this shop has changed to Electronet? Their website shows a shop in Kolimbari. There's also a shop opposite the entrance to Jumbo in Chania. https://www.electronet.gr/stores We can recommend electronet. We looked online for a cooker, and went in to the Chania shop to order it, I think on a Wedn...

Re: mosquitos in Crete

We live in an inland village with a river that rarely runs dry, and there's also a fair bit of water around where they water the orange trees. We have mosquitoes most of the year, but I wouldn't call it a plague. We find mosquito wipes like https://www.amazon.co.uk/MOSQUITO-INSECT-REPELLENT-WIPES-TR...

Carbon Monoxide detector

Has anyone seen carbon monoxide detectors for sale in the Chania area? I could get one via Skroutz, but I'd rather go to a real shop. Thank you.

VPN recommendation please

If you're happy with your VPN provider, could you let me know who you use please? We've been very happy with unblockmytelly.com (previously S4UVPNsurfer). However, they've failed to send their latest invoice, and none of the links to purchase a VPN work on their website, so I presume they've gone bu...

Re: Recycling smartphones

Thanks for your suggestions, everyone. The latter, Warwick, breaking it down and making as much use of all the bits as possible. I've never seen a phone in electronic recycling bins, so wondered if they should go somewhere else.

Recycling smartphones

Does anyone know if there's anywhere that recycles old iphones? Or should they just go in the regular electrical recycling? Thanks.

Re: What`s the best way to get rid of Oleander?

Yes peebee, the smoke is VERY poisonous. I think everything about the tree is poisonous. I heard advice to kill a fig tree - drill down into the tree/roots and then pack the holes with salt.

Re: UPS (Amazon UK) office Chania

Does anyone know where the Chania UPS office is? I got a bit lost with this thread - I know the courier south of Gogoni, but that's not UPS (is it?). Is UPS still near the bus station? The UPS site is hardly helpful, unless I'm missing something. Thanks.
