Guys,
I have a problem which i need to seek opinions.
I have a M1 prepaid card but the sim card has got problem. I brought to M1 shop and the guy told me that i need to replace the sim at around $37. I feel it is too bo hua to get a replacement at that price.

I have the following 3 options:
1) Replace the sim and stick to M1
2) Port from M1 prepaid to M1 Postpaid (SIM-Only of course)
3) Port from M1 prepaid to Singtel prepaid.

Which of the options is the best?

And btw, i still have only $20 value left in my faulty card, expiring in April.
Change to Postpaid Mobile, cannot back to Prepaid Mobile. You still have to pay $48.15 SIM Card + Registration (promo over already).

Switch to SingTel, forfeit your $20 credit + need spend $15 or more for hi!Card ($8 hi!Card Bo Hua af). In the end still spend $35 or so, not much different from $37.45 SIM Card change.

Your remaining voice/text/data will be transferred to the new sim card if you stay on M1, which may actually be worth more than $35 anyway.

Sorry.. Thread is getting too long. Did a search on Singtel Prepaid Data. And read up already.

Just to confirm, for low usage users:

1)
I can do: 1GB X 7 days = $7
Then stack with 10mb X 7 day = $1, 10mb X 7 day = $1, and so on.

2) How far can I stretch the expiry date of the data with the 10mb X 7 day?

This is for old folks, so for their prepaid card with low data usage, i need to know how frequently i need take their phone and buy data for them.

3) Max data balance I can have?
3GB or 5GB or ?

Thanks in advance.

1) Yes, but still note 2.
2) Every 7th day need to buy another package for them. No need to physically have their phone, just make sure you have the hi!App on your phone registered with their mobile number. If before the 7th day, your 10MB will only be extended 7 days from day of last purchase.

3) What u mean by max?

Thanks for the fast reply!

No. 2 is a deal breaker leh. Every 7 days need to whack another package, cannot one shot whack many 10mb X 7 day @$1, very mafan.

Even if I have the hi!app on my phone, still a hassle to remember to top up every 7 days. Then I think it might get logged out and need login and send 1 time pin, then really need physically have their phone.. Sigh..

Next best alternative is 1GB for 30 days @ $10 right?
This is relatively expensive compared to what the old folks are used to, top up $20 last for 6 months, then extend $1.40, etc. Haha.

For 3) By "max" I was thinking, if I buy multiple 1GB, and 10mb plans to stack, is there a max amount of data balance I can have. But if need to top up data every 7 days, really gg liao.

Looks like my old man has to use wifi at home only.

If you have another M1 prepaid no., or have a friend that has it, you can use M Send feature to send the value over (provided you are able to access the function via M1 App or via USSD [assuming the SIM Card works on an intermittent basis]).

Then, you port over to SingTel prepaid fully utilising the value and new SIM Card benefits such as Data (if applicable), and port-back to M1 (if you wish).

Ya SingTel Prepaid is not for low usage customers as I said before.

May as well use the M1 Prepaid - $5 300MB 30 Days.
If there's excessive data, just stack with the $1 10MB 7 days.

M1 allows up to 30 days from last purchase like StarHub, but M1 network for Prepaid is unthrottled, just like Singtel.

For m1 prepaid maybe not so worth to use 7 days 10mb because a 28 days 40mb data will cost $4 vs 30 days 1024 mb data cost $5, just $1 more for 2 days validity and 980 mb more data

30 days 300MB, Not 30 days 1024MB - that cost $10/mth.

Thinking of switching to star hub prepaid from Singtel prepaid.

Does SH throttle 4G bandwidth for prepaid users? Are their speeds generally as good as ST?

StarHub Prepaid is known to heavily throttle their speeds. Up to 14.4Mbps Only.

SingTel and M1 doesn't throttle their local speeds though.

Yeah should be 300mb. But regardless, still more worth for 30 days 300mb at $5

Ya nobody exceed 13Mbps before lol.

Last time even worse, not more than 5Mbps. Even M1 3G Prepaid also faster.
