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.
Can I check with you what the call and sms value is like? Or is plan only for data? I mean I need only minimal call and sms access.

There are various SingTel Prepaid Call/SMS and Data combos you can sign up for. You might like to check out the rates on their website Rates | SingTel

Not sure about calls as I rarely make and receive calls, SMS is at 5cents/SMS. After 10 SMSes you get unlimited SMS for the day only.

so if i roughly use 1GB every 2mths, I can

7-Day Value 1GB Data $7
7-Day Value 10MB Data $1
7-Day Value 10MB Data $1
7-Day Value 10MB Data $1
7-Day Value 10MB Data $1
7-Day Value 10MB Data $1
7-Day Value 10MB Data $1
7-Day Value 10MB Data $1

1GB+70MB for 56 days @ $14?

purchase the normal $10 or $20 top up will do?
can also get 10/20 days of free incoming respectively right?

Correct.

Will only deduct from main balance so buy the normal cards, not the hot55 etc.

Anyone know how does m1 prepaid data works?
Is the data cap fixed? Unlike singtel/starhub where you can choose how many gb you need and deduct from the main balance?

Talking

Thanks for the info!

I'm on a multi-sim with Singtel so my wife can use data for whatsapp n FB...

Now I'm thinking I can just get her to use pre-paid.

I have just 2 main questions:

1 - Sorry for the dumb question but I don't see the 7 day 10mb @ $1 on the Singtel website anywhere. Am I correct to then assume I can get this in 7-Eleven or AXS machine?

2 - Also, what happens to the data validity if I then add the 7 day 1Gb @ $7 if I already have no more data... but am still under the timing validity.

eg. I buy:
1 x 7 day 1Gb @ $7
25 x 7 day 10mb @ $1

so that is 1.25Gb for 6mths (roughly)

then say at the 4th month, she runs out of data,

I buy another 1 x 7 day 1gb @ $7, will the validity of the 1gb be for that 7 days or till the end of the original 6mth period + 7 days?

Thanks so much!

=)

I have never depleted my data account, but logically speaking, it should hold the original expiry date + additional 7days.

Do note that once your data account is depleted, it will start charging your main balance, so do remember to keep your data account filled.

To sub to the data pack, dial *363 in the dialer, they should send you a SMS shortly.

Also does this data work for use in iPhones?

I seem to only be getting 2G =(

Maybe I am on an older SIM card... doh.

I'll kind of goggled myself and found that only M1 prepaid sim card have 4G/LTE while Singtel & Starhub are only 3G the most.
And which is most value for money for data plan?

Hope kind souls here can help

The details are all available on all the telco's website, you have to do your own research.

That being said, Singtel prepaid's 3g seems to be capped at 2Mbps.
