Star**** M size unlimited calls + 15gb looks good man
Tbh it depends on your requirements. If you don't need unlimited talktime (seriously, unless you're some salesperson or high ranking people, why would you need it?), there are cheaper options out there.

(Unlimited talktime includes BOTH incoming and outgoing calls. Price includes Caller ID for non-CIS plans. Excludes any additional discounts as well.)

SIM-Only plans - NO CONTRACT
- SingTel: 3GB base, 10GB add-on data, Unlimited talktime, NO SMS = $94.90
- Alternate: 200 mins outgoing calls, unlimited FIC = $84.20

- M1: 15GB base (mySIM 3 50), Unlimited talktime, 100 SMS/MMS = $70.35
- Alternate: 100 mins outgoing calls, unlimited FIC = $55.35

- StarHub: 5GB base, 10GB DataJump, Unlimited talktime, NO SMS = $59.35

- Circles.Life: 6GB base (port-in), 20GB add-on, 300 mins outgoing calls with unlimited FIC (limited outgoing calls I know), NO SMS = $58
- Alternate: 100 mins outgoing calls, unlimited FIC = $50

However, taking into account the M1 and SingTel SIM-Only 12 month plans,
- SingTel: 5GB base, 25GB add-on, Unlimited Talktime, 500 SMS = $68.15
- Alternate 1: 10GB base, Unlimited Talktime, 500 SMS = $57.45
- Alternate 2: 10GB base, 150 mins outgoing calls, unlimited FIC, 500 SMS = $41.40
- Alternate 3: 5GB base, 25GB addon, 150 mins outgoing calls, unlimited FIC, 500 SMS = $52.10

- M1: 15GB base (mySIM 3 40), Unlimited talktime, 100 SMS/MMS = $60.35
- Alternate 1: 15GB base, 100 mins outgoing calls, unlimited FIC, 100 SMS/MMS = $45.35
- Alternate 2: 30GB base (mySIM 3 50), Unlimited talktime, 100 SMS/MMS = $70.35
- Alternate 3: 30GB base, 100 mins outgoing calls, unlimited FIC, 100 SMS/MMS = $55.35



IMO, I would rather you give up on more outgoing GSM voice calls, and get much more data. Unless you use data on weekend a lot, the feature may not be Super useful. After all, nowadays people uses lesser voice calls and more texting.

As what most people are saying giving 100 SMS is better than showing ZERO.
And from most replies, no one uses SMS nowadays. For my side, 3 lines, 2 lines use less than 5 sms.... mostly zero. 1 plan uses about 50 sms.... i cannot control how others use.


Have to add $16.05 for Caller-ID for the 3 lines (in brackets)
True, hardly anyone uses SMS but at least Starhub should give 20-50 to make it look nicer, how much will these sms cost them, to Starhub it’s nothing actually even at 50 sms.

Sadly idk why...it’s 2017, we still need to pay for CallerID at $5 extra per month (except Circle Life that come FOC). All telcos should by default bundles free callerID as a VAS, those who no need can opt out from the Starhub app.

Caller ID is like free $5.35/mth to them, why would they remove this charge?

These are my selection of options for 3 mobile lines.

Plans pricing is iPhone 8+ 256GB.

Currently under M1 Lite+ for 3 lines. of 2 are under Senior Plans (+1GB) and 5 M1 to M1 free.
The first line is my current 3x M1's Lite+ plans.
With FBB (Fixed Broadband - Fibre $39/mth), i get 20% discount.

Top 5 rows are 24 months contract plans with phone subsidy. Plans pricing is iPhone 8+ 256GB.

Starhub CIS for SIM-Only gives free 24 months Caller-ID.

If your usage is around 3-4GB per line, please also add this into calculation.

PACKAGE 1
- Line 1: Lite+ with Senior Benefits (3GB+1GB) with Upsized Data Plus (4GB)
- Line 2: SurfShare under Line 1 (additional 0.49GB)
- Line 3: Lite+ with Senior Benefits (3GB+1GB)

Therefore effective package:
- Line 1: 5GB (Upsized Data, Snr Benefits and Unlimited free calls to 3/5 M1 numbers are non-shareable)
- Line 2: 3.49GB (If use less, Line 1 can use.)
- Line 3: 4GB
- MSS benefits: 15% for Line 1&3 - main Lite+ package only. VASes are not eligible for discount. Also either Line 1 or 3 can do yearly recontract for new handset ($100 surcharge applies for iPhone, waived for 20 months recontract.)

PACKAGE 2
- Line 1: Reg with Senior Benefits (4GB+1GB), with Upsized Data (3GB)
- Line 2: SurfShare under Line 1 (additional 0.49GB)
- Line 3: Lite+ with Senior Benefits (3GB+1GB)

Effective package:
- Line 1: 4GB (non-Shareable)
- Line 2: 4.49GB (shareable)
- Line 3: 4GB
- MSS 15% discount for Line 1&3 excluding VAS, with yearly recontract, of course choose Reg plan. iPhone no surcharge when yearly recontract, as $350 charge is fully waived.

Looks like StarHub XS plan suits me best since I have 40% CIS discount

Also, I can only find free 100sms for payment by giro. Can't find the details for payment via credit card (StarHub)

Will they charge only outgoing sms or charge both outgoing and incoming sms? If incoming sms is chargeable means all those sms from banks/websites that send OTP passwords are chargeable?\

A question, why you calculated 21 months instead of 24 months?

You can recontract starting from 20-21 months depending on carrier.

Only outgoing SMS need to pay or count towards your usage.
All Incoming SMS are free on Postpaid or Prepaid.

All mobile plans of 24 months can recontract without penalty after 21 months of contract. So you save 3 months of contract.....
- Starhub Need 21 months, M1/Singtel only need 20 months

This is for mysim plan only? No phone subsidise plan?
The first line is my current 3x M1's Lite+ plans.
With FBB (Fixed Broadband - Fibre $39/mth), i get 20% discount.

Package 1:
- Line 1: M1 Lite+ Plan 200Mins/1000SMS/3GB+1GB(Senior Benefits)+0.49GB(SurfShare) [Shareable] + 4GB [[$42@15% $35.70 + $11.80 + $5.35 = $52.85]]
- Line 2: 200Mins/1000SMS/4.49GB (From Line 1) [[$6.42]]
- Line 3: 200Mins/1000SMS/4GB [[$42@15% $35.70 + $5.35 = $41.05]]
- Multi-Service Saver Benefits: 15% for Line 1&3 - main Lite+ package only. VASes are not eligible for discount. Also either Line 1 or 3 can do yearly recontract for new handset ($100 surcharge applies for iPhone, waived for 20 months recontract.)

Total : $52.85 + $6.42 + $41.05 = $100.32

Could not find any clause saying Senior Benefit of 1GB added to main line is not shareable to SurfShare.




Actually, i forgot something. Each M1's Lite+ line is getting $518 phone discount.
$38.16 (Per Lite+)
$114.48 (3x Lite+)
$2,289.60 (20 Months for 3x Lite+)
$1,554.00 ($518 * 3 Line Discount For iPhone 8+ 256GB)
$735.60 (After Discount)
$35.03 (Amount paying for 3 Lite+)
$11.68 (Amount For EACH Lite+)

See the quote from M1 SurfShare plan T&C below:

SurfShare plan is applicable as a supplementary line to main lines with Youth/Senior Benefits and/or Data+ Add-on, but subscribers are allowed to share only the main lineís data, talktime and SMS/MMS bundles.
Last time I was on SurfShare Lite+ with Senior Benefits, I was told by both the M1 Shop Cwp staff and M1 Hotline (1627) that I can only share the Lite+ (3GB) + SurfShare Additional Data (0.49GB) for the total of 3.49GB, alongside the 200 mins calls and 1000 SMS/MMS. Senior Benefits (1GB data, Unlimited Free Calls to 5 M1 numbers) are reserved for the main line only.

Now I'm on SurfShare Reg with Youth Benefits, I was told the similar thing, main bundle (4GB) + SurfShare Additional Data (0.49GB) + 1200 SMS/MMS shareable, but the Youth Benefits (3GB data, Unlimited SMS/MMS) and Unlimited Free Calls to 3 M1 numbers are reserved for the main line.

Upsized Data / Data+ Add-ons are the same thing. It's only applicable for main line, supplementary lines are not eligible to use.
