Accessing bank accounts without a US cell phone

I am a “pre-expat”. Worried about accessing my money. I am finding that banks and brokerages are requiring 2-step authentication to do anything at all in maintaining or accessing my accounts, and texting a code to a US cell phone is the only way they will do that. We have magicJack, and that won’t receive the texts. We will have the Schwab international account, so that should be ok, but we have others as well. We are worried that we’ll end up with lots of headaches and delays in accessing our funds. If any of you US expats don’t have a US cell phone and found a way to work this out, your advice would be much appreciated.

Former President Moreno’s Phase 1 Vaccination Program

I’m over 65 and registered for a vaccination in mid-March and was never notified. I only gave an email address and no phone number as a contact which was permitted. I was wondering if anyone received a vaccination notification by email, or if they just left us all out. All of the notification comments I’ve read about here for the last 2 1/2 months have been 100% about text messages and robo calls and none about email.

Community education center needs your help in Saraguro

Hello, We are Jose María Vacacela Gualán and María Gabriela Albuja Izurieta. We are a pedagogue couple working in a community education project called Yachay Kawsay (meaning life of wisdom in Kichwa language) in Lagunas community, in Saraguro at South of Ecuador.

In March 2021, a devastating torrential rainstorm caused major damage to the local community and project site resulting in the collapse of the local mountain range, destroying an important community education center, alternative education research and innovation hub, and childcare space. Three huge stones fell from the mountain destroying our center where children went daily to learn. We lost their learning and developing area.

Looking for forever home for two 8-years sweet cats

Ava and Adan need a loving home. We have had them for 8 years and got them from the feria libra. We are having to travel between the Coast and the Mountains twice each month for our ministry and they are being stressed out by the travel. We love them and do not want to get to adopt them out, but it is not fair to them for them to be stressed out coming and going to and from the Coast. They are in great health and are declawed in the front paws (not amputation). They do have their back claws. They will have to be indoor cats only. The female is more social and the male a little less. They both love to sit in your lap. If you would take care of them like we would, we would love for you to meet them and be there new family. Email me for photos.

Tuesday 6:30 PM – Pelo Malo (Bad Hair).
Junior is a 9-year-old with “bad hair”. He wants to have it straightened for his yearbook picture, like a fashionable pop singer. This puts him at odds with his mother Marta. The more Junior tries to look sharp and make his mother love him, the more she rejects him, until he is cornered, face to face with a unexpected decision. A film that shows the harsh reality of Venezuelans through the eyes of a small child. An incredible window to understand and reflect on other’s realities.

Personalized murals

I am a muralist who specializes in nature scenes, surrealism and realism focusing on flora and fauna. I love to create sacred spaces for homes and businesses, adding color, interest, and energy to forgotten areas.

Murals have the power to transform a space into a portal, inviting in magic and imagination. They can help attract more clients to your business, or create a peaceful, reflective space for solitude and meditation.

Recommendation for María Acosta Urigüen

Legal consultant, Medical consultant, Runner, Fixer

Maria is a Godsend,

I had been taking care of my mother for the 4 years here in Cuenca before she passed away about 6 months ago. You have no idea how difficult it is for my family and me considering she did not have a will, and I’m in probate court with my sister.

Anyway, without Maria to help me get through the maze documents, affidavits, notaries. etc. plus everything I had to do just to get her body back, but then the paperwork for insurance, just to be told that she had a pre-existing condition, as well a battle with my own personal health, which has been falling apart at the same time.

Anyway, without Maria, who’s smart as a whip, intellectual, and connected to folks that can make things run a lot smoother and cheaper, I could not have done all this. Her English is excellent, she knows everything about the Visa/Medical questions you may have. She is a professor at University of Azuay, is studying to get her PhD, is married to a well-respected attorney, which has been convenient. She has a beautiful family, and is a wonderful mom and person.

And her prices are transparent and fair. I offer her a five (5) star review and recommendation for the work. Hire her back in a heartbeat.
