M1 mySIM 3 20 gives 15GB per customer for just $20/mth, including Caller ID.

All 3 lines on the same plan, only cost $60/mth.
Unless the handset subsidy is >$45/mth, going for the Combo XO route still cost more.

Accounting the free 12 months MobileShare (I can't find it on the website), it'll be like this:
- First 12 months: $94.05/mth
- Next 12 months: $118.05/mth
- Average cost: $106.05/mth

To get handset subsidy of about $1100, it's like getting iPhone XS/Max directly from Apple. Taking into street price of the phones to compare, it's just ~$900 subsidy ($448 on Combo XO + $100 upgrade discount vs $1350 street price).

Not very sure if $200 extra is worth or not, since you're getting 45GB vs 36GB still.
Likelihood of data bundle plunging after your current contract is kind of low, if TPG service trial gives 2GB/day at full speed for free for one year, and seeing their Australian prices thereafter is still pretty cheap.
Very good breakdown. In my case, my 2 mobileshare use less than 4gb combine. Thus, I have 32gb to myself, instead of just 15gb. Can Netflix all the way outside 😁

Oh then liddat maybe can consider mySIM E 70 instead for the main lines, and Circles Flexi plan + $8 for 1GB add-on, if they don't need much talktime and SMS. If need more than 30 mins talktime (both in & outgoing calls), get the Zero1 1GB to Unlimited plan instead. First 6 months $9.90/mth, $13.90/mth thereafter.

- mySIM E 70: 35GB data bundle. $70/mth including Caller ID.

- Circles Flexi + 1GB add-on: 2GB data bundle. $8/mth including Caller ID.

Total cost: $86/mth.

- Zero1 1GB to Unlimited: Unlimited Data Bundle (first 1GB full speed; up to 1Mbps thereafter). $9.90/mth including CID for first 6 months, $13.90/mth thereafter.

Total cost (averaging out over 24 months): $95.80/mth.

The same Circles Flexi & Zero1 plans can be applied to the SingTel Combo XO plan, but taking into account handset subsidy and additional subscription cost, M1 mySIM E 70 set up will still save about $200-240 over the 24 months contract for iPhone XS/Max.

eSIM support still limited to the smart watch by Samsung iirc. Never expand into iPhone yet, as well as other phones.

Usually the porting is done at 11.00 pm and should be completed by midnight.

There should have SMS on the porting process.

Remember to restart your phone.

I have 3 Mobile share lines with singtel. Can I port over 1 mobile share line over to M1?

Is there a cheap youth plan with a lot of data in the market?

Yes you can port. And if you define cheap as under 50 dollars, then Circles with up to 32GB for 48 with sign-up code 12GBXMAS.

I have 3 Mobile share lines with singtel. Can I port over 1 mobile share line over to M1?

As long as your MobileShare contract is over, you can switch to M1.

mySIM 3 20 (12 months contract). $20/mth for 15GB data. 1GB extra for SAFRA. NTUC have 1GB extra and 10% discount.

Same data/talktime/SMS bundle for mySIM E 40 (24 months). It's handset contract instead of sim-only.

Youth plans aren't that worth now considering the mySIM E plans give much more data within the same price bracket, unless you need extra talktime & SMS

Taking Youth Benefits into account:
- Lite+ (3+2GB) @ $42 vs mySIM E 40 (5+10GB) @ $40
- Reg & Upsized Data (4+3+3GB) @ $67.90 Vs mySIM E 70 (15+20GB) @ $70
- Reg+ & Upsized Data (5+1+4GB) @ $87.90 Vs mySIM E 90 (30+20GB) @ $90
- Max & Upsized Data Super (7+1+18GB) @ $119.70 Vs mySIM E 118 (50GB + unlimited 1Mbps) @ $118

No. The 2 supplementary mobileshare lines are for my parents. Apple watch numbershare is tied to my main line.

been using the old iphone value plan with 12gb for many years. today went down to m1 to change it to sim only plan end up have to pay 21.40 for change of plan no waiving

so i did the ntuc card sim only combo for mysim3 for $20
$18 after 10% disc plus $7.50 for unlimited talktime (originally $15 now got 50% disc) so total i pay $25.50 per mth (include gst)

5gb standard + 10gb (for 1yr only) = 15gb
unlimited talktime i added = $7.50
change of plan = $21.40

Your iPhone Value plan can be recontracted and get a subsidized handset, you know right? Keep your full bundle as well.
