From what I've read, if you're using foreign phones and sim, there is no need to register your phone here in Chile. But does anyone know if maybe there are any changes in Chilean policy that caused my roaming to stop working? Do I need to maybe register my phone even though it doesn't use a Chilean sim?
just a guess.

From USA and outside Chile dial 1-917-727-5985 (U.S.), in Chile dial 65 2 42 1024 or by cell 747 97974.

Yep. It happened to me tambien. I got 30 days on my phone and they zapped it. It took a full week after I submitted my registration form until it started working again fyi.
Ooh ok. Is the registration done at multibanda site? I saw a link there with "el listado de las empresas certificadoras", did you go through one of the companies listed there?
It's so weird because in the "soy-extranjero-foreigner" page of multibanda - they specifically state that if you're only gonna use roaming, you don't need to do anything.
I have done it several times with Dekra:
normally takes a few hours before they liberate your phone.
