Nice, juntion 8 singtel told me that they can waiver off $47 for the resgister fee. Tho no zte at $1
I went to ask starhub and they told me that i have to convert my singtel prepaid to postpaid before i can sign up for starhub sim only to keep my number.
Does singtel charges to convert prepaid to postpaid?
Although singtel plan looks good, unlimited weekend data seems go draw me closer to starhub.
Singtel, when are u going to include unlimited weekend data also? XD
Hi limjialok,

We do not charge any conversion fee for customers who are changing their number from prepaid to postpaid.

However, there would still be registration and SIM card activation fees. Any balance on the prepaid card will not be carried over to the postpaid number.

Hope this clarifies.

If I were to change from Singtel Combo 3 to Sim-only, Will I be charged for SIM card activation fee ?

Additional data as in plus 3? Wtf?
Yes, can only apply after one year of sim-only usage with starhub. The girl in J8 say that a few times to me, to stress that she is very sure of this. Of course, this means I may go to Singtel as its a better deal and Im currently on Singtel combo 3 expiring soon.

Nope.. I don’t think they charge that for switching between plans since your number and SIM card remains the same..

Hi leeerwin,

As it is just a change of plan from Combo 3 to SIM Only, there will be no SIM card activation fee.

For the NSF: Have to sign up in the SingTel/M1/StarHub Shops. Exclusive Distributors MAY not accept.

SingTel:
25% off Combo plans, with free 24 months Caller ID & Roaming.

M1:
1) 30% off Voice+ plans, with free 24 months Caller ID and Roaming Subscription.
(Note: Sometimes up to 50% discount. Especially during major roadshow periods.)

2) mySIM E plans only have Caller ID and Roaming, no monthly discount.

FOR 2-YEAR HANDSET CONTRACT PLANS (Voice+/mySIM):
Port in discount of $150 for mySIM E 40 & Lite+.
Port in discount of $200 for mySIM E 70, Reg and above plans.
Promotion may change anytime. Check with M1 for confirmation.

3) mySIM 3 plans do not have any freebies.

4) EXCLUSIVE TO GOVERNMENT AGENCIES (GOVERNMENT INDIVIDUAL PLAN)

mySIM+ 45/75/125 get 45% off base subscription during the 12 months contract.
Caller ID is payable.

mySIM+ 45: $24.75/mth excluding Caller ID
mySIM+ 75: $41.25/mth excluding Caller ID
mySIM+ 125: $68.75/mth excluding Caller ID

Recap:
mySIM+ 45/75/125 bundled voice/text/data: https://www.m1.com.sg/AboutM1/NewsRe...offerings.aspx

mySIM+ 45/75/126 Upsized Data options:
https://www.m1.com.sg/AboutM1/NewsRe...20options.aspx

If want mySIM (12 months contract), mySIM+ 45% discount is more value than mySIM 3 normal:
mySIM+ 45 & Upsized Data Plus: $41.90/mth including Caller ID during 12 months contract
- 400 mins outgoing calls, 1200 outgoing SMS/MMS & 16GB data
mySIM 3 40: $45.35/mth including Caller ID during 12 months contract
- 100 mins outgoing calls, 100 outgoing SMS/MMS & 15GB data

StarHub:
Their discount is super confusing, ranging from:

1) 20% to 30% for smartphone plans.
Free Caller ID and Roaming for 24 months as well.

2) 15-25% for MaxMobile plans.

SingTel no sim only benefit nor Caller ID.

MySIM+ was the older mySIM Plans. That's the reason why you can't find it directly on M1 website alr. Only government agencies have exclusive access to mySIM+ plans and at steep 45% discount for base plan. Only mySIM+ 45 and above are eligible. The links that I've posted are linking to mySIM+ plans. (Recap section)

mySIM plans: 1st generation SIM-Only
mySIM+ plans: 2nd generation SIM-Only
mySIM 3/E plans: 3rd generation SIM-Only / Handset

StarHub SIM-Only is 50% discount and free Caller ID for 24 months for SIM-Only. It's the same as what was stated on Starhub website.

For M1:
MINDEF is one of the government agencies. You show your SAF 11B at M1 Shop/CSC, tell them you want to sign up for mySIM+ 45/75/125 & it's the government individual (NOT Corporate Individual).

If you're part of HomeTeam, better check with M1 for eligibility. But probably SPF/SCDF is eligible too.

For StarHub:
SIM-Only plans itself is alr 50% discount from the regular 2 year handset contract plans. 12-month SIM-Only is 50% discount + Double data.

For StarHub SIM-Only plans and apply for CIS, first 24 months will have free Caller ID, but after the 24 months you must change to individual SIM-Only or request for extension (upon showing your pass). If not, you'll pay the full price, both the original handset contract rate + Caller ID.
