Re: SATELLITE INTERNET CONNECTION

Hi cosmoman, I wondered if there was a particular reason you want satellite internet? Friends of mine who live in Xerosterni have been waiting for a landline for the internet for 15 years and counting. Last year they got hooked up with a service from the people at Virus in Kalyves. I don't know the ...

Re: Ryanair Bristol - Chania

I received emails yesterday informing me that my Bristol - Chania flights for summer 2021 have been cancelled and indeed there are currently no flights scheduled on this route for 2021 if you try to re-book. Have you seen news that Ryanair have officially removed this route or could it be they are j...

Re: Biometric permits

Typically the TAXISNet platform for submitting 2020 returns will not be open until May 2021 so people with appointments earlier than that will only have their 2019 returns, i.e. submitted in 2020 for 2019 income. P&B, did you have a blue certificate and had it been issued more than 5 years befo...

I wasn't asked for this document but it's probably worth taking it along. Does anyone know if it's possible to print this yourself from myTaxisNet website and if so how?

Orthopedic Surgeon

Can anyone help with a recommendation for an Orthopedic Surgeon ideally in the Chania region but could be further afield.

I am currently a patient with Stefan Haak at Tsepeti Hospital in Chania but would like to get other opinions.

Thanks in advance.

Partners phone is no longer working as of this morning. Strange how the issue has crept around VM customers rather than impacting everyone at the same time.

Re: UK Virgin Sim

My phone isn't SIM locked so not the cause of my problem. Despite VM telling me at midday GMT yesterday that a new SIM would take 3-5 working days to be delivered (the reason being that VM use Royal Mail to deliver SIMs), it actually got delivered in the UK at approx 16:00hrs this afternoon just ove...

Re: UK Virgin Sim

I spent an hour or so on the Live Chat to VM a couple of weeks ago and they concluded that my SIM was fine from their standpoint. Because my problems persisted and I did a few checks myself (that I described in my earlier post) which pointed towards an issue with my SIM I went back to them yesterday...

Re: UK Virgin Sim

Thanks for the heads-up on that Mathitis. I just had a look on the Virgin Mobile website and the activation process is described as follows: Here’s how to activate you SIM to get you up and running in no time. 1. Pop in the SIM that fits your device. 2. Turn your device on. 3. Wait for the signal co...

Re: UK Virgin Sim

Interesting. My partner and I both have Virgin SIMs, I have been experiencing signal problems for several weeks but my partner doesn't seem to have any problems at all. Sometimes I have No signal at all, other times I have Data Connection Only, and very occasionally I have a signal to permit calls a...

Re: Stranded parcels at Vamos

Another option you may wish to consider depending on factors such as the value of the goods, if the goods are fragile, and how quickly you want them would be to use a courier or taxi. On the first day of lockdown 2 my mother in-law took a taxi from Kalyves to Heraklion airport to catch a flight back...

Re: Stranded parcels at Vamos

About 4 weeks ago we spent a night in Heraklion. On the way back to Chania we realised we'd left some belongings in the wardrobe in the hotel room. We telephoned the hotel and they kindly packaged up our belongings and put them on the bus to Chania later that same day. The hotel telephoned us to let...
