using this product

so far i've made a few local calls. voice was clear
Seems to be useful for iphone user.

Someone describe it as follows:-

It will make your iphone into a dual or triple sim iphone. The box will be connected to your home wifi to have internet access to communicate to your iphone. And your iphone must have data connection or wifi. Very useful if you travelling abroad, you only need internet connection when travelling and use this dual sim to call and sms to your home country at no roaming charges. Just like youre in your own country.

Thanks, I understand the purpose is to save roaming call charges. The question you replied to was what you do with the free m1 sim that comes with fiber. In such case, you'd need to pay for the local call charges if using this bundled m1 sim.

Now that I think of it, is there any box like this that can connect to the m1 phoneline since it has free calls?

m1 data sim only used during journey to airport. local call during that short 2-3hrs can use whatsapp, wechat, telegram..e.g.

My understanding is this:-

When in overseas such as Taiwan;

2nd iphone (Chunghwa sim with data) --> Simbox (with M1 sim) connected to Router 24/7 --> 1st iphone local call.

In overseas but using data and NOT IDD calls but it is a mobile local call in Singapore.

Interesting workaround for roaming calls but like a bit tedious

Edit: I called M1 regarding the issue and hope this will be useful for anyone who comes across.
Thanks for sharing this ...

I was also unable to recontract online as I had terminated the SurfValue plan before fibre end date ... luckily saw your post earlier else I would have spent time trying to figure out why ...

I proceeded straight to M1 Shop to get it done (downgrade from 1g to 500M).

Was a little surprised that the new plan cut over was immediate .. thot it would start when existing plan ends.

I was given a new SIM card on the spot.

Home fixed line number remains the same.

Did you have to pay any fee to downgrade? If so how much was charged?

The new plan started immediately as it's considered as a recontract.

after downgrade to 500M plan, I have not noticed any service degradation

i m mostly using wireless devices (2 laptops, 2 mobile) ... Netflix, Surfing, Youtube etc

Speedtest results remain the same as 1Gbps plan ... DL & UL around 380 to 400 with laptops

2 year old ASUS AC1200+ router (M1 CSO say still got 1 year warranty)

I can confirm no charges once your contract has ended. I did mine online.
