hi all....wonder if we can get ipad2 from singtel shops but with taglite plans?
Nope . If u wanna get ipad from singtel, have to ho for multi sim card first. After one month, u can cancel multi sim and try applying taglite. But for taglite, have to stay with them one yr

Not true. I have a BB and an iPhone, on multisim... But you will sign for a BBOM for the iphone as BB data only covers blackberry apn.

if i'm not wrong multi sim is $10 a mth, taglite is $5 only. multi sim allows u to share data, voice calls & sms whereas taglite only allows u to share data, which if u r using ipad then just take taglite, no point taking up multi sim.

yesterday i went to sign up for taglite, they kept on trying to get me to sign the mio plan. for the $30+$10 sim & registration charges they can waive, just call 1688 and tell them nicely, they waived it for me. at 1st when i did the taglite at the singtel shop they kept telling me i can't waive the $40 BUT if i sign up for mio tv at $9.90/mth they will waive it for me. which is crap coz i can't believe they can just anyhow give customers such "proposals". its the official singtel shop, not those retailers.

as for the speed, initially was 0.35mbps for the 1st day. so i called up and besides doing a reset on their side + asking me to clear the cookies/cache on my ipad, i was also told to wait another day coz its not completely activated. so i waited another day, did the speedtest and i got abt 1-2mbps for the download speed, same as my mainline. anyway its NOT SUPPOSED to be 0.35mbps, that is totally not acceptable. that kind of speed totally cannot surf/download anything! if it continues, make sure they do something on their side else request for a cancellation.

one thing i must say is singtel's 3G network really suck on the whole. alot of times dont hv the 3G signal and it happens at alot of places, from bus interchanges to underground tunnels in trains (but surprisingly got reception on NEL) to some parts in my home. i think singtel shd just upgrade their 3G network.

Not true. I have multi-SIM and I only pay $5 a month. I can use data and voice calls on both smart phones (BB and iPhone).

BB and iPad2 shouldn't be a problem. If you are on Singtel, yes you have to spend more.

Yeah, I'm on Singtel, using Blackberry phone currently and intend to get ipad2.

My intention was to go to Singtel and ask them to issue me 2x normal sim card and cut one of the sim card for use in the ipad2. My understanding is that this method would only cost me an additional $5.35...

Is this understanding correct or are there other costs involved ha? Please enlighten me...

Yes, cutting of the sim card will work and only cost you $5/month. I am on BES and the data is not part of the BB unlimited data plan so I have to sign up for BBOM (another $13+ per month!). I am not sure about BIS though. Best is to ask Singtel.

Should be no other cost involved. I was using the same thing for a 3G USB modem dongle and my BB 9000 =) (not ipad)

Multi Sim is $5 for normal sim, $10 for micro sim.

Just get the $5 one and cut to mirco sim size
