SCB Unlimited continues to work for me without a glitch. Switched from CEPAS mode to bank mode at the beginning of January, and <thankfully> no issues since.

Called POSB, the operator asked if I tried my card contactless function with any retailers, which I did not because that card is only for ATB and SP Group recurring billing. POSB will replace this card with a new, same number card, but I need to go to the ATB site to update the new expiry date.

So, just now when I was buying something at NTUC, I tried to pay using this card. The machine cannot read it, fail, and asked to swipe instead. So, it means the contactless function of my card totally died off...... Prior to this, I have had no issue at all... and this is a new card that I just received last year......

So I received my replacement card from POSB.

I added it into my ABT account. But, when I check it on GMT station, I did not see the screen of switching to bank card appear. Do I need to wait, for like 24 hours?

It shows “bank card”.
A month or two ago my Citi MC stopped working with ABT. Asked MRT staff, ABT CS, Citi CS, all just point fingers at each other.

By coincidence I lost the card and asked for replacement with new number. Registered that new card with ABT and it worked only for a few days then same error20 or whatever. Since then gave up and moved back to ezlink.

You are still so persistent with ABT??? I don't see anyone taps it on the bus anymore.

My new card is working fine.

Only hope the mobile trial can be better.

The scheme did not work well. I think the MasterCard applet inside the card registers every entry/exit. If there is an entry without an exit, no one can clear the problem except MasterCard. Not the banks unless the banks issue you a new card. not transitlink, as I think they have no way of clearing the entry without exit in MasterCard system.

my POSB on ABT also suddenly stopped last march after 1 year trial.
then I tried in retail shop and the paypass not working anymore.

POSB replaced card for free and my ABT is back to normal. Seems there is max number of paypass/ABT tap ?

My DBS card also stopped working suddenly today. Boarded the bus is fine. But got error when exiting the bus. Card doesn't work anymore on subsequent bus rides.

I have been using Maybank CC for ABT since November. No prob so far
Besides MRT and buses, I also use my CC at Fairprice, Watsons and Guardian with PayPass .... I am fortunate that I didn't encounter issues so far
