Re: POWER of ATTORNEY for REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION

For: rfinmdusa 1) Was the POA only in Spanish, or also in English? It was only in Spanish. 2) When you say "we took it to", Yes, we drove to each place. We live in Maryland outside of the D.C. Beltway so the driving around wasn't too bad. The hardest part of it all was getting the Consulate at the C...

Re: POWER of ATTORNEY for REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION

When we bought our property in Chile: Our attorney in Chile made the documents giving her POA and mailed them to us in the US. We signed them in front of a notary at our bank who notarized it. Then we took the notarized POA to our County courthouse and had the County Notary, notarized it. Then we to...

Re: iphone options for travel in Chile?

The free upgrade to a regular SUV has happened with multiple rental agencies. If I remember correctly I've used Hertz, Alamo, Budget, maybe another and this time Econorent. After getting the upgrade this time I scanned the parking lot at the airport where they have the rental cars and did not see a ...

Re: iphone options for travel in Chile?

I was checked in at IAD on LATAM from IAD to PMC. My luggage had PMC stickers on them and the guy at the counter at Dulles said my bags were checked to PMC. He said I needed to go through customs at SCL but my bags were checked through to PMC. The flights were IAD to LIM to SCl to PMC. Every airplan...

Re: iphone options for travel in Chile?

The WOM SIM works in the iphone5s. The WOM card I bought at the mall in Puerto Montt could not get activated at the mall so i went to the WOM store a couple blocks from the mall. I get a good signal in Puerto Montt and Ancud. No signal from WOM at my property. I also signed up for the ATT $10/day pl...

Re: iphone options for travel in Chile?

The website opensignal.com shows WOW has a strong signal in PM and Ancud/Castro. It shows a weak signal at Punihuil which is a couple miles from my property so its a roll of the dice at this point. I'm at a higher elevation than Punihuil so its worth trying.

Re: iphone options for travel in Chile?

My unlocked iphone5 is a 5s model A1533 which, from Apples website, is a GSM phone. According to what passport posted above and http://willmyphonework.net, a WOM SIM card should work on in it. The ATT $10/day plan mentioned by milos99 is called AT&T International Day Pass and requires a Mobile share...

Hi All, I will be in Chile(Chiloe) next week and am looking into options for cell/data service with an iphone. I have an unlocked phone5 and a locked iphone7 with ATT service in the US.

Re: Airline reward programs

Forgot the fine print. There is always a $25 booking fee for domestic flights and a $50 booking fee for international flight hence $115 and $140 ticket price.

Re: Airline reward programs

I don't have any of those cards as I live in the US but for almost 20 years I have been using a CC that has a $90/year annual fee. I have made a dozen flights from the east coast to Anchorage, AK for $115 each and half a dozen flights from the east coast to Santiago for $140 each. The prices include...
