How to transfer credit between Movistar Chile? 

Before you start, you must take into account that this service is available for Prepaid or Control Plan customers, and that both the sender and the receiver must have one of these Movistar plans. In addition, neither of them must have an SOS pending payment.

To transfer credit from your Movistar cell phone, follow these steps:

  2. Select the option “Transfer balance”
  3. Enter the recipient’s cell phone number
  4. Enter the amount you want to transfer, which can be from CLP$500 to CLP$2,000 per day
  5. Confirm the operation and you that’s it! The amount transferred will be valid for 7 days.

Please bear in mind that this service has a cost of CLP$50, which will be deducted from the amount transferred. However, the recipient can use the transferred balance for calls and navigation, as well as for purchasing bags and other value added services.

How to transfer credit with Entel?

  • Call 301 option 1, option 7, option 2.
  • Enter your RUT (Cédula Rut Electrónica)
  • Enter the Entel prepaid number to which you want to recharge your account
  • Enter the amount you want to transfer (CLP$500, CLP$1.000, CLP$2.000, CLP$3.000)

If you want to give credit as a gift, you must:

  • Call *103#.
  • Step 1: Go to “Send/Receive $”.
  • Step 2: Choose the option “Give balance as a gift”.

The customer who sends the balance as a gift is the one who pays for the commission and the amount they choose to give as a gift. The commission is 10% of the amount given. Example: If you want to give CLP$1,500 as a gift, the commission would be CLP$150.
