Last year went China, my buddies bought starhub prepaid, it didn't work the entire time over there.

My M1 data passport just works once the plane touches down. If you refer to those threads about data roaming. M1 data passport is one of the best or if not the best.
Starhub prepaid card worked fine for me for two trips in 2017/2018.

SingTel postpaid plan data roaming also worked for me for two trips in 2017. It was more expensive but that was a company phone for work.

All three telcos should all work as long as you get 4G data connection. 3G/2G can be a problem.

In the end, the best is to have both a Singapore sim and a local sim. That is what I did for my Dec 2018 trip.

VPN is only for those who need to stay for long time.

For M1 mySIM plans with 12/24 months contract, is the caller ID still free or chargeable at $5 per month after the contract auto renew at the end of 12/24 months?

Free cid will not auto renew. You'll have to watch out for deals when your contact is expiring soon.
Unless you're on the old ntuc promo where the free cid is 24 months and you still can have one more year to go after the first year ended.

Bottom line is, be mindful of what you're signing up before putting down your signature.

it depends on the promo. the advantage of the 12 months is that in the event there is a better promo, you can actually recontract/restart the 12 months period without penalty. i did this for 2 of my lines which auto renewed before the new promo that comes with free caller id.

In April, Safra promo changes from extra 1GB data to 5GB data. This additional 5GB data is added to the basic plan 5GB, giving a total 10GB data in case data passport is activated. Not sure if this promo is still valid.

Based on current mySIM promo, can manually renew free caller ID when re-contract after 12/24 months? Or the caller ID will cease to be free?

Still valid.
Correction it's a total of 20gb


100 mins outgoing + 800 (port in)
15gb + 5gb (safra)
Caller id (24 months contact only)

Monthly $20

Hv a 2 year 4G4 contract with StarHub that ends today 27/4. But not able to recontract to SIM only plan online. System won’t allow even though 27/4 is clearly stated. Seems I hv to wait till 28/4.

Is this correct ?

If your contract ended on 27/4, that means on 27/4 the contract is still in-force. The contract will expire on the very next day, that is 28/4.

if its autorenew or manually renewed though, the caller id is free.

Read the fine print. Telco always reserves the right to change. I don't think free cid will autorenew unless that promo is still on when your contract is up. My previous auto renew was before free cid, so i call up and was asked to recontract again during the free cid promo. So, when it comes to your expiry date and no more free cid then dont have.

if its autorenew or manually renewed though, the caller id is free.

No need to worry. TPG will be fully functional next year. The price war will continue. Consumers benefit ultimately
