aka trade in value at $350, your better paying and selling your phone instead.
"trade in" to 3rd party shop is better

abit lost to your question.

using mobile swap feature to upgrade phone while not signing new contract? is this even doable?

or recontract your mobile while keeping mobile swap service?

It is known as mobile swop UP, you don't have to pay anything to upgrade from 6s plus to iphone 7.

Can be done anually

waive $350, similar to the starhub new program.
plus u can "trade in" outside for more than $350.
same as what i answer previously.
why dont you just pay $350 for early recontract, for those who do it regularly with key line or paying, u wont even need mobile swop monthly payment.

Mobile SwopUP! allows you to upgrade to a new phone every year. Simply return your Registered Handset from the 13th month onwards and we will waive the early handset upgrade fee (worth up to $350)

does this mean that if u just got the ip7 in sept, u can upgrade handset from sep 2017 onwards with the early re-contract fee old $350 waived? meaning to say, only pay for handset price for the combo selected? if yes, i would say it's worth it.

pay monthly charge and trade in the last phone u purchase
guess u didnt read at all
example u purchase iphone 7 in sept 2016, do u think your phone value is higher or lower than $350 on sept 2017?
there u goes on the answer

dont think it so magically, u will get the magical shock at the counter haha

sigh. don't assume. there's a reason why i started with a question and ended with an "if". it's for clarification.

u are the kind of person that makes schools an unpleasant place bcos asking questions = stupid/didn't read at all.

nevertheless, thanks for the enlightenment, intelligent one. if what u say is the case then it's not worth "swopping up" at all.

Somebody needs to create a poll or we won't know which one more people sign on. Apple care or mobile swop up.

I'm waiting for SingTel 's call to clarify more details.

Some singtel new staffs don't actually aware or understand about the mobile swop. And ask me to call the Mobile Swop department to seek for help when I ask about annual iphone upgrade.
Quite disappointed with their services.

would suggest u sell your phone outside to get higher resale value.

den use it to offset the price when you re-con.

mobile swopup! more for those who tend to mishandle their phone.

whats this commotion about? Did i miss anything?

its about swopUP right? if thats the case, its evident that the website is clear about the annual upgrade fee of $350 is waived (strictly 12 months after, 13th month onwards). So subscriber gets to recontract with a subsidised phone lor.

But don't mistaken swopUP as something to bypass the annual upgrade fee waiver.

For this to work, you need to return the device to singtel, that is associated with mobile swopUP.

Eg: 1st SEPT 2016 you bought IP7+ with mobile swopUP activated. 1st OCT 2017 you wanna recontract, and buy IP8+ (for e.g.), then you need to return your IP7+ to singtel, $350 fee waived for you and you buy IP8+ at contract pricing.

The above is stated in terms & conditions of mobile swopUP and also inside the FAQ.
