iPhone 5 Problem

Can anyone help sort out a problem I am having with an iPhone 5 I have inherited?  I was reliably informed that the phone was unlocked and would take any SIM card, however on inserting a brand new nano card with HITS network it gives me the message, “the SIM card you currently have installed is from a carrier that is not supported under the activation policy that is currently assigned by the activation server”.  It then goes on to say I should insert another SIM card or request that this iPhone be unlocked, but I know it has been used in the UK with at least 2 different SIM cards from different networks successfully.
Please contact Lynn on 951088473 or lynngallon @ hotmail.com



Services Available-Interpreter

Well, summer is almost over and the hospitals and ambulatorios are back to normal after the vacations.
You should be getting that appointment you have been waiting for any day now.
Most doctors speak a little English, but much prefer you to have an interpreter with you, because the risk of being misunderstood or of misunderstanding  is too great.
I was an interpreter at the hospital for fifteen years And for the last five have been working privately for patients.  My charges are reasonable and they can include picking you up if needed. And , most importantly, I don’t charge by the hour.
Do call me.

What’s On – Conversation Classes in Nerja

I recently read on DigameXtra about conversation classes which are held in Nerja on a Thursday evening.  Unfortunately, I copied the email address down incorrectly and wondered if anyone is able to provide me with the right address.   I have written down ‘intercambioidiomasnerja @ hotmail.com’ but this comes back with a notification failure message.

Please respond to bandv.robinson @ btinternet.com



What’s on – Yoga Classes, Torrox Pueblo

There are 3 yoga classes weekly in the Pensionistas club (above the indoor market in the main Plaza) Torrox Pueblo. A “gentle” one ( ie just with a chair –  no lying -down exercises) FREE at 11.15 Mondays, followed by “normal” class for 3 euros. Another “normal” class on Thursdays at 12.00 also 3 euros. This is currently preceded by a free class to learn the dance la Sevillana, although this may have to stop if numbers dont increase. I’m a beginner and enjoy making small but steady progress each time I go. Please contact class teacher Ellen on 667 202 392 for more info –

Please note Torrox Feria may affect classes this Thursday (29th) and definitely none on Monday as it is a local holiday.

What’s on- Yoga for everybody in Nerja, Torrox & Torre del Mar and at your residence

Namaste to all Diagame readers!

My name is Kiki Trenew. I am practising Yoga since 14 years – nearly every day – and it changed my life. To understand Yoga you have to practise regular. With increasing practise your power, confindence & well-being will grow slowly. Your view will go to the inside and this will make a change in your life.

Everybody can practise my Yoga whatever age or physical condition. I always work in little groups and i will adapt the Yoga posture to every single student. I mix Ayur Yoga, therapeutic Yoga, Yin Yoga & Vinyasa Flow Yoga – the basic you will find in Hatha Yoga. Every class can be different as i always work in needs of my students. Come along and try out and learn to boost & stretch in a healthy way:

Mondays 10 h and 20.30 h in Nerja & 12.15 h in Torrox

Wednesdays 10.30 h (men only) in Nerja and 12.30 h in Torre del Mar

Thursdays 18 h in Torrox

People who call me for information often ask what for people are in the group to know if there fit in especially with her age. All of these groups will suit everybody, but to give you an idea some more details to the groups: Monday morning group in Nerja are mostly women 60plus, but of course men are very welcome :-). The Monday night class is a mixture women between 40 and 60. The Monday group in Torrox is a mixture of women & men 65plus.

In the Wednesday session in Torre del Mar are quite a  lot places left.

Men & women all ages.

The Thursday group in Nerja mostly women between 40-70..

For those who don’t like to work in a group, i offer one-to-one sessions in Nerja or at your residence.

For more information visit my website: www.solyoga.es, call me +34 627 411 358 or email me info.solyoga @ gmail.com

Wishing you all a wonderful week
