•fallback 2FA to physical dongles or use family phone line as his 2FA

•call SingTel to suspense line @ $5/month

•when in state with local data, continue to use Whatsapp, messenger n Viber seamlessly 👌...

•use dual APPs on above if requires



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.

Temporary suspend your son's current mobile line with Singtel for $5 per month. + Change his auth mobile number for OTPs/2FA with US sim card number? (heard is possible) or change to physical dongles.

Keep hearing people advise use physical dongles... suspend main lines etc...

Singpass how? Some banks don’t renew or issue dongles anymore how? Overseas dongle battery run low how?

•plan your back up on above

•Singpass - request for Onekey dongle (was explained by officer not to canx mine on this overseas purpose)

•was away. few years overseas(diff timezone) with above .. no issues 👌 phone line was suspended

I am also about to head overseas, for quite a while.
I also want to be able to receive certain incoming calls to my sgp mobile number, such as those from banks (to verify transactions), or other official purposes.

Will probably go for the myrepublic plans.
18 per month. Nett.
Able to receive incoming calls via app.
Make outgoing calls to sgp numbers via app.

Iszit? I think $0 plan very limited, only can topup talktime and data, cannot topup SMS?

Roaming only available on the $28/mo base plan leh..... so $0/mo plan can receive SMS while overseas?

...

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.

The fine print says “throttled at 128kbps...”, which is 0.128Mbps...

Now bank switch 2fa to phone liAo fully phone unless u wana do more secure transaction then need physical token


Allthouvkt hAving 2fa supprt is still best of overses eitehr the $0 cL flexy or redone $8
Suspend the line is not a wise choice
And get a dual sim phone


Keep hearing people advise use physical dongles... suspend main lines etc...

Singpass how? Some banks don’t renew or issue dongles anymore how? Overseas dongle battery run low how?

To all bros and sis in circles, may I ask how is it for you, in terms of the data calculation and support etc?

I was planning to go circles Sim only (cis) but I saw reviews from seedy that their data calculations is inaccurate, for example an existing 3gb subscriber suddenly see his data being 20+gb after making the switch.

Thanks all!

In 2017 Citibank already told me they won’t replace my dongle... same goes with standchart & Singpass, dbs went digital this year.. no one uses dongle anymore

However, to make it secure, otp is still needed. So if one prefers to carry multiple dongles that’s fine but some others will prefer to use phone apps with the additional security of OTP & 2FA...

I am overseas right now and carrying multiple dongles is the last thing I want to do

•Banks - do the necessary battery renewal of dongle with banks prior ur trip

•plan your back up on above

•Singpass - request for Onekey dongle (was explained by officer not to canx mine on this overseas purpose)

•was away. few years overseas(diff timezone) with above .. no issues 👌 phone line was suspended

Still considered 3G speed? (redone)
