For my Sony phone, there is an option to download Internet setting in the setting menu

Is there any expiry in dates? Or is it works the same way as prepaid top up card? Which allow the value to rollover?

English damn jialat, I think i'll help the rest to rephrase the above if i'm not wrong.

$7 for 1GB for 7days. But if you cannot finish the 1GB by the end of 7days, you can actually roll over instead of subscribing another "$7-1GB-7days" plan. So to "cheat" this system, you have to buy the "$1-10MB-7days" plan to rollover that 1GB you haven't finish.

Correct?

i'm thinking of signing a 2-year m1 mdata value+ @ S$12 per month for 2GB with the free wifi modem

take out the sim and use inside my old Samsung galaxy s but have to pay additional charges for phone calls and sms which i seldom use

is anyone doing this now?

think it is quite troublesome to top-up every 7 days and my 2G starhub edge very slow and quite expensive S$20 per 30 days

tried it as i have S$50 accumulated balance for 5 years but was quite disappointed with the 2G sim card speed

a bit puzzled why Telco don't have a sim only plan with 3GB data bundled with 30 mins talktime and 50 sms at the price of S$15

why are they bundling more sms and talktime and less data, feel its a waste to subscribe when most of the sms and talktime never use

For Singtel 3G hiCard, the Data Expiry date can be roll over, you can top up $1 for 7 day plan in one day 52 times, so you spend $52 and the data expiry date will be extend by 52 weeks ( 1 year).

Wow starhub prepaid card works different way. User have to wait till the last day of expiry date for topup to maximize the extension. Guess singtel is the best option right now.

Like you said, buy Singtel 3G prepaid 3G SIM card for $15, then dial *363# to add data.
If you have other teleco's 2G prepaid SIM card, you can port over to Singtel without change your HP number.
200MB for $10 ( 30 days ) is not a best option.
You can buy the conbination of $1 for 5MB (7 days ) and $7 for 1G ( 7 days).
So one $7 for 1G + three $1 for 5M = 1G data ( 21 days).
Is actually 28 days, not 21.

$1 is 10MB.

not sure if it works this way, can someone clarify?
Singtel prepaid mobile (from website):
1-Day Ultimate 2GB Data = $6
7-Day Value 10MB Data =$1

Does it mean if I get the $6 data and then topup after 1 day and I can continue using the leftover data from day 1 for the next 7 days for just $1?

Thanks.
this 2 doesn't stack, tried it before.

If you use less than 1GB per month, 1GB cost $10 for 28 days on singtel prepaid.

Can roll over remaining balance by buying 10MB for $1(extend expiry date by 7 days)

Do note that singtel seems to have a 2Mbps cap on prepaid cards as I cannot get over 2Mbps even in ulu places.
