Re: chip your animals!!!

Had to take one of our dogs to the vet today, so we had him chipped! 10,000 pesos for a neutered male. We and our dogs are fortunate that we can afford this new “tax”. We still have to go through the registration process and wonder what a frustration that will be. We take care of our dogs, have them...

Re: Need advice buying a new cell phone to bring to Chile

Reference Homologation... A weird expressions! Last November we registered a Costco-bought cellphone with no problems at all. All,that was required was a clear photocopy of the purchase receipt. As I remember, the receipt had a fair amount of info on it about both the phone and the name of the purch...

Re: Need advice buying a new cell phone to bring to Chile

Admin, do I understand correctly that an unlocked phone that works with one national carrier in Chile, will work with all the national carriers? I thought that there were some differences between the frequencies used by Claro, Entel etc. I would be happy to be wrong, it would make this purchase a lo...

Need advice buying a new cell phone to bring to Chile

I need help with figuring out the compatability of an unlocked Samsung S9+ North American Model,(SM-G965WZAAXAC) that I can buy in Canada, with the Entel network, which is the only one servicing our rural area in Chile. This phone would need to act as a hotspot for all our internet and 3G/4G require...

Re: Recommendations for Jan/Feb place

Fellow Ottawans here! I take it that you are thinking of starting next Jan?? Its a bit late for this year, but Feb might still be possible. After the winter that Ottawa has had so far, I am surprised that there aren’t more posts like yours!!! Will PM you with some ideas.

Re: Movistar Prepago Sim

My experience has been that anything over 5 or 6 months and the number ( and the chip) goes puffo. And I was never able to find a company that would allow me to prepay for more than 3 months validity. They are harsh here in Chile!

Re: Best phone and internet companies?

And I thought that hands down Entel won the prize for unbelievably bad customer relations followed by another first prize for unbelievably bad delivery of promised services. So I should be glad Movistar refuses to deal with us?
