m1 free CID is only valid for 12mths contract and above.
That is correct but it also comes with a long list of benefits for the "inconvenience" of a 12 months contract.

The GOMO plan will be suitable for those with simple needs or die-die must be no contract, but for those looking for a plan that offers much more, then M1 or Starhub should be considered.

I went for M1 because of the data passport; $25 add on gives me 10GB (5GB base plan +5GB Safra Card) data overseas for 30 days; which is 2.5 times my previous travel Starhub prepaid SIM card offers ($25 for 4GB valid 28 days)

So choose the plan which suits you most, everyone has different needs.

What?! Must pay for downgrade?

I'm on the legacy plan which has 12gb data and the same 100 outgoing sms and calls. Paying 40plus.

Are you saying that because of this I will have to pay $21 for the downgrade? Is there any way to waive off or avoid that?
Port out then port in after 1 month. Can enjoy the perks as a new customer & reset the 3 M1 to M1 unlimited calls' numbers.

Yeah m1 data passport is great, 5+5GB can be used for data passport.

It will normally be pro-rated, so there won't be an dis-advantage.

However, do take note if your current old plan is more expensive than mysim 3 20, you will have to pay a downgrade penalty of $21.
that's dumb... then just port out to another telco... no need to pay penalty...

Yup. Ported out then ported back in to M1 with Safra discount. Got everything but the prepaid card which I didn't need.

actually what is so good about the data passport? $10/mth to $50 (depending on your destination), with $2 activation fee. I would be better off (maybe with higher Data or no worries of charges due to over using) with getting that country sim card isnt it?

yea that is how local telco works. everything that need to change is a must pay thing. like m1 to m1 unlimited 3 numbers, that 10.70 fee no matter how many number you change. Or any activation or deactivation of services is also 10.70. One of the reason I avoid the main 3 telcos

Can you access google/FB/WhatsApp using local SIM card in China, for instance? How about those not using dual SIM card phones? Carry 2 phones?

Each to his own as I reiterate.

Actually for those of you with Safra membership, do you really use the membership perks? I canceled mine as it is underutilized. Not worth paying...

based on current, from now till dec 2020, this VAS is free. If they do not extend it, there will be additional monthly charges after which.
