Re: none-chilean registered phones to be blocked in 2019

I just verified this yesterday with my iPhone. You need to dial *#06# in which a 15 digit number should pop up. Go to your provider's (in my case Entel) and search for IMEI. Once you are there, enter that 15 digit number and it will tell you whether it is registered or not, mine was. You have until ...

Re: Bolivia in court today about Chile and access to the sea

Based on the composition of the country of origin of the judges in the Hague, I would not be surprised if they rule against Chile. My dos centavos.

Re: Internet in rural areas

Movistar too. However, the best thing to do is to ask your relatives what coverage works in their area and go with that. For instance, where I live, Entel is the best, Movistar also has an ok signal and Claro not at all.

Has anyone here used Viabox to ship from U.S. to Chile?

Living here in the south of Chile, I tend to use a lot of outdoor equipment and clothing in the winter. Unfortunately, some of these manufacturers either do not ship to Chile or have distribution agreements with a company here in Chile that prevents the item to be shipped to Chile. I was looking at ...

Re: Putting a fence

Rob - I live on the other side of Pangui, towards Los Tallos. I had one guy help me and he lived about a km away. Don't worry about finding someone, like I said, most of these guys grew up on the campo and know how to put up fences but many do not have vehicles so its best it is near your property. ...

Re: Putting a fence

The wood used is pellin which is very rot resistant but difficult to find now and very expensive if you do find it. Most fencepost now are either hualle (which will need...

Re: International shipping unreliable

I order things periodically from Amazon and they normally ship via DHL and other than a few hiccups with Aduana, I rarely have had any problems. However, my most recent order was shipped Landmark Global. What a nightmare. Because this carrier is partially owned by Belgian Post, my shipment went from...

How do you determine how much Aduana will charge?

I am thinking about bringing in a new wood chipper from the U.S. to Chile. I know the price and the cost of shipping to get it here but I have no idea what the duty fees will be from the Aduana once it arrives here. Other than Customs, what other fees would be applicable? If anyone else has had expe...

Using mail alternatives from U.S. to Chile

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience using an alternative to U.S. Mail, DHL or Fed Ex on this forum. As many of you know, there are certain items that cannot be shipped to Chile due to licensing issues or because the business is just not set up to ship internationally. I have heard that ...

Re: Paying customs duties at airport

I was just in the States this summer and brought ground coffee from Trader Joes as well as whole coffe beans with no problem. They did however confiscate my ground red chile pepper flakes because they had seeds.
