What to bring from the outside and buy in country. (Santiago de Chile)

Hey everyone.

Quick question. What products would your recommend trying to pick up outside of Chile vs buying whilst in country?

I ask because here in Ecuador clothes are either of poor quality or ridiculously expensive. Also things like cell phones (any electronics) in Ecuador are about double the cost of back home.

Lastly, does anyone know if I can get a decent phone plan with just a tourist visa? I am talking about a monthly plan that comes with a decent phone. Typically you have to sign up for at least year to get least this is the case in Canada.

I am making a quick trip North before I hit Chile in November and just wondering about the things i should stock up on while I can.

Thanks in advance.
