Hi vuzuuu,

There are two methods to activate ReadyRoam

(1) Dial *101#
(2) Via My Singtel app

Here are the step-by-step guide for each method:

For both methods, no other settings required except to enable data roaming.

Hope this helps and have a good trip to Beijing.

Better to just buy local SIM card
SingTel just wants to trap you to use your SingTel line to make expensive Roaming calls

Ok but for many other countries it's cheaper to get local Sim

Hi, I'm back from Beijing yesterday and I would like to share my experiences of using SingTel Readyroam for the past 8days.

Facebook, Google, whatsapp and etc all can be used during the whole trip. Overall, speed was good and stable. Even made a whatsapp video call at Mutianyu Great Wall which quite deserted area in china. Make messenger voice call everyday with no major issues encountered.


$20 for 1g data is really worth the money.

if its this case for china then will surely use it the next time i go China....

Anyway singtel, what happens if the 1Gb has been used up? will it auto charge under the expensive auto roam Date bundle or it will just stop till we buy the 1Gb again?

Hi mamboeidos,

Once you exceed the 1GB, you will enjoy discounted pay per usage charges that is equivalent to another 1GB plan.

Excess data beyond the 1GB bundled data on our preferred networks will be chargeable at S$0.019/MB (~S$20/GB) for ReadyRoam (11 countries) and S$0.0034/MB (~S$35/GB) for ReadyRoam (26 countries)

You can refer to our FAQ link below for more information:

Am leaving for KL for few days and will try out the DataRoam Malaysia Monthly this time round.
Hopefully, the network in Malaysia as good as I enjoyed in Beijing last month.

Hi vuzuuu,

You can sign up for our DataRoam Saver Malaysia Monthly 1GB at S$10.

You can terminate the plan after you come back from Malaysia.

More information on this plan can be found in the links below:

Do let us know if you have other questions.

Been using the singtel data roaming since last Wednesday in Hong Kong, shenzhen and Guangzhou. Works well in Hong Kong with 4g connection.

However in shenzhen and Guangzhou it is painfully slow with only edge connection. No idea why.
