Iphone xs/xs max with or without contract
 
Actually if people re-contract with telcos instead of buying without contract at 2k plus.

it will be cheaper with a contract at 1k plus.why are people still so angry and say won’t buy a 2k phone?

Did the math comparing my corporate starhub xs plan vs circle life's base plan. I get 20% off with starhub as well as free caller ID. I need to top up an additional $6 for 3GB extra data so as to cover my monthly usage as well as make it a like for like comparison with circles life's base plan. But starhub is definitely cheaper over the two years when you factor in the subsidized phone cost.

But I'm sure this varies person by person. Maybe the other way holds true for someone who requires a huge amount of data each month.

You need to factor in how much will you be paying each month too.

iPhone Xs
Singtel Combo 1
64GB $1,248.00 + $669.6($27.90 X 24) = $1917.6
256GB $1,468.00 + $669.6($27.90 X 24) = $2137.6
512GB $1,748.00 + $669.6($27.90 X 24) = $2417.6

Unless you have a CIS plan.. Telco pricing will be higher.

For me, i need huge data. 15gb per month but i'm paying only $40 flat per month.
I have been buying phones without contract for a long while..

Understood but no matter what we still need a phone and a contract which we are paying each month.

What I meant was even though buying without contract they will still be paying for telco services each month too.

We can always re-con for a cheaper new iPhone then buy it without contact?

Getting a SIM only plan + a phone is almost always definitely than the plans telco bundle with phones. Unless you have CIS/CES.

i calculated singtel's 1-yr sim-only 30gb plan w 64gb xs max and it costs more than 2-yr combo xo w same phone. why like that

fakeyou 17-09-2018 03:58 PM

CIS plan with iPhone more wuhua. Telco usually subsidies 500$ with reference to singtel combo2

If you add in phone prices and spread the cost over 24 months, your monthly expenses would be $40 + (phone price / 24) appro 70plus per month?

Yeah for me I'm paying roughly $96 a month for the 256 XS with starhub's $48 CIS plan. with circles life and a full cost iphone it will average out to be $106 over 24 months.

jaymessofly 17-09-2018 04:22 PM

Have to depend on your individual plans & needs.

I do not have any CIS/discounts etc with any telcos.

In my case, Iím using Circles.Life base plan $28/month. Bought phone from Carousell BNIB - from people who recontract, so I do get some savings again from SRP.

Calculated before and I do get some savings compared to signing a plan to get phone with telco.

Yeah! The best case would be CIS or multi-line discount.

Typically, telcos offer rewards system or potential recontract vouchers. Hence it might not be true that SIM-only plan offer the most value for money.

oh yeah good point on the re-contract voucher bro. With that factored in, it will bring my cost per month down to $95 LOL. but im sure once I get my own house with my own internet/spouse phone line the voucher they offer will also be greater. i stress really must do your own calculations please.

jnashville 18-09-2018 10:14 AM

i have 35 percent discount on my m1 line, making my $62 plan to become $40+. I still can claim mobile bill from company....so yea its a good deal to get via contract. Buy the phone and sell it away.
