doesnt make sense why the $53/m plan has lower phone subsidy than the $45/m plan
I think they gave more data and unlimited talktime now. Don't remember last time EM12+ has so much data.

no joke em12+ is definitely a much better plan but the change has been for a while now.. they probably realised they were losing too much from the subsidy

PSA: For those who are holding to the old plan mySim3, now with $5 for extra $5, do take note that once you activated it, after 2 hours, do remember to unsubscribe the service before M1 generates the billing.

Because M1 will charge in advance for the coming next month bill and if you unsubscribe after the biling, the data will revert back to 15Gb and there is no recourse to get back the 5Gb even you have paid for it.

What a fark up service.

No more free Auto Roam, it only comes with Pay Per Use Per Roam.

What is the cheapest cheapest no contract mobile plan now? Thinking to help convert my mum's m1 prepaid card. She doesn't need data or even sms, just minimal calls will do

Which SIM only plan

hi, need advice on this situation:

1. Facts: My son is about to go US study for 5 years in coming August, and only likely to come back to sg during school holidays, about once a year for about 2 weeks. Currently his is on Singtel combo 2 CIS (old) plan paying $29.90+$5 caller ID+GST per month, no contract.

2. He intend to get a US phone plan for his stay in US, but want to keep his Sg hp nos for 2FA, and friends contact. And use in sg when he is back to sg during school holiday.

Obviously stepping down sg hp plan is a must as he rarely use it in sg. The question is to which plan.

I did a brief research, I think stepping down to Singtel GOMO, paying $20+GST per month, but I am not sure if
a. can receive 2FS SMS oversea?
b. can port existing postpaid nos over to GOMO plan? I don't mind paying 1 time porting fee.

Also, is there other better plan fr other telco? How about porting existing prepaid nos to post paid paln?

Thanks in advance for all input.

Is he still on contract? If he does not have any existing contract, you can try to port to RedOne MVNO, the cheapest plan @ $8/mth with 2GB data or MyRepublic UNO18 @ $18/mth.

Ask singtel whether you can suspend the line and pay $5 per month until you need to use them. Can't remember whether it's singtel or m1 that has this option.

Don't suspend the plan, else he will not be able to receive 2FA.

If you have another Singtel mobile line that is a Combo plan, you can call Singtel to convert your son's line into a Mobileshare supplementary line. I think the price is $12.90 per month (no caller-ID) so it'll be cheaper than GOMO.

Alternatively, you can try Circles.Life $0 flexi-plan as someone mentioned. Receiving 2FA overseas works. However, need to check the fine print for any minimum usage to "keep alive" the line.
