How can I upload contacts with phone numbers including the international code?

When I upload a CVS of users which includes a column for phone (I want to use this to send SMS messages) the + drops off from the phone number, I am in Chile so I need to include +56 for anyone I wish to contact.

Instead, when I see the contacts in Mixpanel all contacts have got a +1 in front of them. I guess mixpanel defaults to this when they don't detect an international code. So I end up with +156xxxxxxxx which is obviously no good to me and I don't want to have to go and edit each contact.

Has anyone had this issue before or have any fancy excel tricks to maintain the +?

Thanks in advance!
