Thinking to port to Zero1 $9.90 plan then back to M1. Should be incurring minimum cost. Only thing Zero1 seem to have connection issue, so have to bear with it for awhile. Still have MR UNO plan as 2nd line.

No choice for the port-in promotion. For 5GB+10GB not bad already.
I'm just afraid that zero1 might have problems, duration to taking the sim and get it activated. If not your next choice is to GET Starhub no contract plan

For my usage, M1 mysim is most attractive. At $20 per month, can further save $9.40 from current CIS. Gonna port out then port back to M1 to avoid paying change of plan fee & can reset the 3 common M1 numbers.
CIS $9.40? I don't rmb CIS has discount for simonly plan?

Heard about some bad experiences others encountered. Will look at ST or SH to be sure, mine is a golden number so canít take too much risk.

Maybe I worded it wrongly, CIS plan is $29.40, so if I choose $20 Sim only plan, itís a further savings of $9.40.

I'm using MR UNO plan, connectivity wise is same as Starhub as it uses Starhub network. Calls sometimes don't get in, internet speed latency is high (lower the better), hence loading websites will be slower. Reception wise, I feel still average. If you exceed the allocated data bundle, the throttled speed will be painfully slow.

I'm using M1 as main & MR UNO as secondary line. Set to use M1 for 1st 3-weeks of the month & MR for 4th week as the last mile. So far MR line working fine on my OP6T, nothing unusual happened.

But my mum complained about the connection on her Nokia 3310, so not sure it's due to phone quality.

Thanks for all the response. Guess I'll just skip Mr and go for either ST or M1.

You are same me. M1 main line, MR as secondary line. Just that MR will get "missed" missed calls without you knowing. The other party will say call you no pick up, I was like Got meh? Never receive any missed call. It caused me to lose lots of potential employers (Google). Sigh. Reception for MR (starhub) not on par with M1

Hi, for the starhub sim only plan is there a minimum period to fullfill or its really no contract as advertise? The service agreement stated at least 12 months for recontract etc.

I am only getting H+ network throughout the day from Tuas to Yishun not sure whats the problem and disconnected from the network a couple of times.

Currently using MyRepublic whom they are using their infrastructure but i am getting 4G+ throughout so i am confused why there is sure a big difference between them.
Yours could be the previous SIM-Only plan where options on either no contract or 12-months with additional data.

The new SIM-Only plans started on 6 Dec 2018 with options on either no contract or 2-years with handset.


If you are travelling in the MRT and with both wifi & data enable then it would be due to wifi (wireless@SG) signal drop and reconnect to data connection to & fro.
In this case you may have to disable the wireless@SG and to rely on data only.

Yes, just signed up today. 2gb port in bonus is over. NTUC 1gb and 10% bill discount are still valid.
NTUC member has further 10% off subscription for SIM-Only plan?

Finally, converted My Singtel 3G 12GB to M1 Sim only plan $20, 15GB, free caller ID & roaming (nt sure why we need roaming when pay per roam is sufficient) for 12mths contract.
Saved $11 per mth. ^^. Thanks to all bros.

You need roaming so that you will forget to cancel before the 12 months are up and they will charge you. Most people forget.

But did the handset subsidy take into consideration? $29.40/mth is like Lite+ with 30% discount. The plan handset subsidy is around $400 on many handsets.
