    Black Market Phone Enquiry

    I am not having that problem with my iPhone 12 mini. I wonder what is causing the issue on some phones but not all? Strange but surely fixable by Apple in the future. Still it's not fun to feel like a beta tester.

    Black Market Phone Enquiry

    That's the same conclusion I made a few months ago. Customs has a track record of always winning big with me so I try to leave them out of everything that I can. Warranty is also something you want to think about. Hopefully nothing goes wrong but if it did...

    Kitas to Kitap

    Something tells me it's not Option 1. The immigration offices are deserted when I have been in there lately.

    Kitas to Kitap

    I am currently at 2 months waiting for KITAS to KITAP. Doing the paperwork, paying the fee and having the interview do not guarantee an approval. At this point, I'm afraid that the only advice I have is to just wait.

    Passport/visa agent or notary

    The visa is going to be the biggest problem and the other items are a pretty tall order. I know people right now that have legitimate marriages and cannot get a visa for their spouse for the purpose of visiting the US. It is actually easier in a marriage to intend to immigrate to the US and get...

    Campaign to hate foreign products

    I have a personal experience importing a CPAP to treat sleep apnea. This device is medically necessary for people with sleep apnea to help prevent that damaging effects to the body from this condition. It is common to buy a CPAP in other countries used and save a lot of money from the ~2,000 USD...

    ITAS/ITAP Covid Policy Change

    I can't help but think that since so many people are having the exact same experience of being discouraged from applying for KITAP, there is word coming from the higher ups to do so. The reason could be money, as stated by Sam, by losing the yearly income or it could be related to something...

    Campaign to hate foreign products

    If by targeted and logical you mean substantial increases across the board, then yes it's targeted and logical.

    Campaign to hate foreign products

    I think the end game is to tax imports even more. This is just rhetoric leading up to that.

    Testosterone replacement therapy in Jakarta?

    I would assume that all can but whether they do or not is the real question. If you read the other threads about TRT you will see that your treatment options are very limited here and expensive compared to other countries. Sustanon and Nebido are the only injections available officially here...

    ITAS/ITAP Covid Policy Change

    I went in with only 2 weeks left on my KITAS, which is when the officer told me to come in. At first they didn't want to process the KITAP and wanted me to apply for another KITAS. Surprisingly after a little protest from my wife and I, they agreed to to process the KITAP. Luckily I had all the...

    Did Immigration officer visit house for kitas process?

    My experience was no visits for KITAS (my neighbors would have informed me if anyone came around) but definitely a visit with KITAP.

    That's my understanding as well but also ready to be corrected.

    The Texas thread

    Please stop wasting your time then. I haven't misconstrued anything. You are the one that doesn't seem to comprehend what I am saying. I have nothing to argue about, you are the one that seems bent out of shape because I don't share your opinion. I have said all along that my only argument was...

    The Texas thread

    As I said before, nobody was complaining about the company when the customer was paying far below retail for their power. They weren't considered a bad choice at that point. This is not price gouging as much as you want to see it that way. The contract was laid out in advance and specified...

    The Texas thread

    You really have me pegged just because I made an argument for free choice. I never said regulation or consumer protections were a bad thing. I never argued anything other than free choice is a good thing and that (as bad as it is) the power situation in Texas was still within the rules of a...

    The Texas thread

    Again, I agree with you. But the fact remains no one was charged outside of the government cap nor were they charged outside of their contract. Take action to have the law changed or challenge the contract in court but at this point no one has done anything illegal. It's a bad situation and...

    The Texas thread

    Agreed again. On those points. If the contact was unsound for some reason, take them to court but I haven't seen any evidence or any claims that the contracts weren't valid. People just don't like the contract when they pay the in demand price. They loved it when they were paying well below retail.
