    Text book list for all expats

    I have to ask this question.... A friend of mine recently visited the UK. Before he said anything i thought whats he gonna tell me? Let me guess.... Weather terrible Crime out of control No one has a job Everyone is miserable Country is backward Too many ethnics Country on the verge of collapsing Worst place in Europe to live. No prospects for anyone. My question is this. If the Uk is so dire. Why arent they asking for a bail out like Italy,Greece,Portugal and possibly Spain??
  3. Hi All, Just a little confused as to whether and IELTs test and a skills test is always compulsary on a 475? Also, reading from previous posts, its seems I am in a unique position... I got a job for a council and am in Oz working for them. I came in on a working visa (on their instruction) and they are about to send off my application for a 475, but I am a bit lost as to what exactly I need to fulfill on my part i.e. skills and or english test, xrays/ police check etc... Can anyone offer advice? Thanks
  4. i got laid off from work the last week, due to my boss not being able to find any work, this was done by text which i think is terrible, a few hours later though i got a call saying he had managed to find further work and i was reinstated, we completed this job and i tried to ring him to for the address for the next job, but his phone is off, i sent texts but he does not reply,left messages on his phone, so that is it been laid off the yellow way, does not bother me, wanted to go home anyway, but its the nature of how he has done it, beware aussie bosses because they are p****s, i have worked for a few and i know, good luck if you are a tradie subcontracting, you are going to need it.:arghh:
  5. Just wondering if any of you here in Oz can help me with this. I'm on an Optus contract, I regularly send text messages to my folks back in UK but last week tried sending a photo I took. No can do. Tried it with the wife's phone, No can do. Anyone know why? used the same numbers as we use for ordinary text messages +44 etc., but it just won't go. Anyone know what the problem could be. I went to the Optus shop today but the queue was out the door. :arghh: I hope someone can help because my son back in Britain is laughing at me now reckons I can't use a mobile phone. (Cheeky git) Thanks, REDDERS
  6. Hi all, Howz it going? Allow me to be the first to wish you all a Merry Christmas and best wishes for the new year. Just wanted to know if anyone can give me advice on sending text messages to Australia from abroad? Currently form UK it costs me 20p per message to send from my handset to Australia. I have tried a couple of free sms sites, but they either limit the message or include their advertisements in the message or the messages just don't get there or there is just a thousand popups from each page!!! With the festive season around the corner and so many friends to wish well I need a reliable service. Thanks for your recommendations in advance Leurelle
