multi sim with singtel to use on Ipad
 
Hi all,

any1 is using singtel multisim with ipad?

im using ip4 with microsim and so the charges per mth for xtra 1 simcard will be ard 10 bucks and not the usual 5 bucks

i specificalli said i want a normal card whch cost $5 then the cso say no..cos my existing simcard is microsim and so they cant link..

if i wan a normal card , then the cso said what then i got to register or change both n cost something like $40 bucks for 1 time and then montly ard $10..damn confusing..

why cant we just get a norm sim...

did any1 using a combi of microsim and norma sim as the multsim?

feel like being cheated by singtel..so i walk away to clarify here..

thanx for any help

My previous card is a normal sim which I used in my nokia.
Iphone 4 came out before my contract expires.
So, no choice but to buy from apple store and cut it myself.
Then went to singtel to subscribe a data plan.
That was last year.

Went to Singtel this afternoon to get multi sim after I got my ipad.
The cso asked me what do i used it for. I think I was too happy after getting my ipad and told him i'm using it on ipad. He then say they want to charge me $10 per month for the multi-sim.
I told nvm, can cut because my current one also cut one. :p

Finally, got it for $30 and $5 per month. But, the new sim seems to be smaller than the one I had.
Not sure whether it will work. Anyway, they said my current card will deactivate in 24 hrs and I need to put the new one in when i find that I cannot call out. Will post again after the switch.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed :)

By the way, when these telco suckers give you something free, you better beware.
For example, they gave out free microsim card when you buy iphone from them.
Then, when you subscribe multi sim (which undercut their ipad data plans), they will charge you $10 as long as you hold a microsim (see their multi sim plans).

For my case, I have 2 normal sim in their records. So, they can't squeeze much from me. :)
