Re: phone is dead

Shops do make mistakes. I ordered some outside light fittings from Kafkas a couple of weeks ago. I showed them the one I want on a display board and the assistant took the part code off the ticket next to the correct one. Unfortunately the ticket was wrong so the fittings I received were a completel...

Re: phone is dead

Have you checked the full model number. I think the single SIM version is E6653 while the double SIM version is E6633. I would guess the number should be on the box somewhere. e-shop don't quote it in their adverts.

Re: Greek Driving Licence

When I changed mine they were using the red cardboard booklet type licences and they were issued in the office where I applied. That meant that they only took a couple of days to issue. I am pretty sure I had to submit my UK one with the application but the lady said I could carry on driving and ref...

Re: Cicadas-love em or hate em?

It's all citrous trees near me, mainly orange, and there are plenty of cicadas so they are not overly fussy.

Re: One toe in the swamp

That is true BUT only if you do not already have a bank account here. If you already have an account and wish to open a second for some reason then I think you still need €10,000. At least that is what my bank manager told me a few days ago.

Re: How to attach photographs?

Thanks for that Bob. I had forgotten that you need to use "Share" to find the code. It works if you embed the whole code copied from the box. I also discovered that if you inspect the code there is a section in the middle that starts https:// and ends .jpg. That is the true url of the imag...

Re: How to attach photographs?

That doesn't work for me with Flickr. I just get the word "Image" not the actual image. I have a feeling you have to do it a different way with Flickr. I have done it before a long time ago but I can't remember how. Possibly copying the html code and pasting that into the post? I have a fe...

Re: Microwave WiFi/internet link

I'm not sure how Virus are doing it but the shop in my village rents 6 lines all with fast broadband giving him a total bandwidth of 72 Mbps, I think. He then distributes it using one of the WiFi bands so users only need a standard WiFi router and a decent antenna. Obviously he has a lot of customer...

Re: phone is dead

I have also found them very helpful and they are pretty good with returns. I have taken back two "faulty" products. In one case, a jet washer, a plastic clip was broken off one of the accessories, a deck scrubber attachment, and they got that replaced for me. It took a long time and the fi...

Re: phone is dead

Unfortunately not. e-shop in Chania is not a shop, it is a distribution centre. No stock is held in Chania. All stock is held in warehouses around Athens and is shipped directly to you or to the local e-shop distribution centre when you order. It's more like Amazon. Immediately available simply mean...

Re: Easing of Capital Controls restrictions as of Mar1st

It doesn't necessarily mean an individual drawing it out for their own use, Paul. For example I could imagine that there are lots of holiday home owners in Apokoronas who pay somebody to look after their property. That person may be hiring a number of other people, who don't necessarily have bank ac...

Re: phone is dead

Assuming you mean a simple landline phone then I found Public in Chania had a decent selection at reasonable prices. Alternatively you could order through e-shop. Press yellow button labelled "Δείτε όλα τα προιόντα" for full range.

Flight Delay Compensation

I have just submitted a claim for compensation for a delayed easyJet flight under EU Directive 261/2004 . They have an online form which is pretty easy to fill in. I received an email reply within minutes telling me that I was entitled to compensation and it would be paid directly into my bank withi...

Re: Easing of Capital Controls restrictions as of Mar1st

True. I'm not sure what my card limit is but it must be at least €840 since I have drawn that amount out when it was the capital control limit. Thus I could draw out the new capital control limit with six trips to the bank. Personally I couldn't care less what the capital control limit is but I thou...
