    I did read through, so sorry, just not as quick as I once was. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Watching NCAA and NFL games in Thailand

    I think you maybe wrong concerning the NFL being available internationally, unless you sign up for the paid NFL game pass. Also, while Netflix is available in Thailand, it does not show all the television shows and movies that are available in the US. When wanting to view a Netflix show I must use a vpn to see the US version of Netflix. And while there are a fair mix of NFL games on TrueVisions, I have yet to see any NCAA football available, and rely on my vpn for that.
  3. I can only imagine the parade of people with money trees heading for that temple after convincing poor friends, neighbors and relatives to give until it hurts. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  4. Of course they are being forced. They are pushed by families and government and if they refused their families would be devastated from the loss of face. In this case there no saying no to the nine day sentence of monkhood. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  5. Mandatory monk hood.
  6. I have had a number of friends in the states wonder how these kids are doing. They followed this story, cheered when the boys were rescued and are honestly interested.
  7. “. . . Not even been found guilty by the school . . . “ That is the problem. When a complaint is made it should immediately become a criminal issue. The school plays no part other than to report to the police. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  8. But no jail time? This must be a parallel universe.
  9. Here is how CNN covered the same interview - “US Air Force officer on Thai cave rescue plan US Air Force Public Affairs Officer Jessica Tait says rescue teams are trying to find the safest way to save 12 boys and their soccer coach as a number of elements make the rescue effort difficult . . . “
  10. If you consider viewing and accepting people as humans rather than lumping them by gender, race, sexual persuasion etc as PC nonsense then the problem is yours.
  11. I didn’t see them lead off any other news stories with the headline including gender of the rescuer.
  12. Why is it necessary to identify the military member as a female?
  13. I found this interesting . . . https://moneywise.com/a/ch-a/americas-worst-states-to-retire-in?utm_source=fbk_rbn&utm_medium=mobi&utm_campaign=rbn_worstretire2&utm_content=rbn_worstretire2_pubaa_mobi_v05 Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect

    Help, buy Phone is USA or in Thailand?

    If I stop paying I loose my phone number - not a big deal to me. Upon my return I just go to the nearest AT&T shop and get a new sim and phone number. I do the same with True each time we return to Thailand. This year, since we Use Comcast/Xfinity for television, home phone and internet, I switched over to their no contract plan. If I don’t use it, which for six months a year I won’t, I pay about $3 a month during that period, and I can keep my phone number. During the months I do use my Comcast phone no contract plan, I pay $11 a month for data and the calls and messaging are free. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    When you sign a contract, as a part of that contract you agree to however many months/years to abide by that contract and in return purchased a subsidized phone. A contract is a legal, binding document and has nothing to do with your ability to get your phone unlocked. If you want an unlocked phone, buy a no contract unlocked phone instead of trying to squirm out of a contract you signed and agreed too. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
