Re: Movistar Prepago Sim

I think that is probably similar for the prepago sim cards from Claro and Entel. I have an old N.okia phone that I misplaced while moving to the house here. It had been lost for over a year when I found it last week. After putting a small charge on it, I was able to turn it on, but the chip was deac...

Re: Professional house hygeine/mold inspector?

... got sick from a visit to a particularly bad one once. ... That was like almost 10 years ago she got sick from going to that one house. Pretty scary stuff. Those Socavesa houses in that neighborhood where you last lived in Temuco, they have some mold issues too. Water wicks up the walls I heard.

Went to a Popeyes in Santiago the other day. They didn't have a number of sides like you can get in the US. Especially beans & rice. :(

Re: Any good electronic parts stores in Santiago?

Ricky-san, how could you have been suckered so easily? Didn't you have your glasses on? :) But that is a common tactic of having a close sounding name and it fools people. But there are a lot of clone Hakko soldering stations out there. From a first glance they look like the real deal. The stickers ...

Re: Any good electronic parts stores in Santiago?

I know this is an old thread, but since I am the op, hey I can put some life back into it. I never got a Hakko FX-888, but I did get their FX-888D (220v). The updated one with the digital readout. I ended up getting it from an authorized Hakko dealer in the UK. Was pretty expensive after all was sai...

Re: To flush or not the toilet paper.

Freight Forwarders for purchases in the US

Not sure if we have had a thread related to this topic before, at least I didn't find one after doing some searching. But what freight forwarders have you used to send items to Chile. I am not talking about FFs that will ship a container for you. I think we have covered that in another thread somewh...

Re: To flush or not the toilet paper.

To flush, or not to flush, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,

I guess if ExpatBob was able to get internet like that, then he would have stayed.

Re: iHerb shipping

Question: Is it ever worth it to select DHL shipping on iHerb? Right now I have a cart of products that's over $40 (under 4 lbs), so it's offering me $8 shipping through DHL. It's estimating arrival within a week if I choose that option. No, don't do this! xD After dozens of packages with food, sup...

Re: ATM fee

A friend tried BICE in Temuco the other day. Their ATM had a fee of 2500. It did not limit you to 200000 per transaction. If that is the case, it would be better than Banco Estado with their 4000 fee.

I will look to verify the info today and report back.
