Just curious if we have unused M1 sim card from previous terminated subscription, can we use that and get a waiver fee?


Can't lah..

Try asking nicely for a wavier?

I got 2 lines that can recontract soon and I'm not gonna pay $38 each man..

Edit: Wait, I just realised if I already have M1 sim card and I recontract them, I don't need pay another SIM card for $38 right?

Yes. Only if u request to have a new sim in case u are using normal sim card size which no longer fits into modern phones.

Or switch to esim also got to pay. For size can take the risk and cut it to the correct size.

Back when esim just launch, the cso don't really have a clue whether waiver can be given, i did try my luck with a number of calls until i got one who says can waive off.

Also back when one plan just launch, i remember reading free sim inclusive of esim when signing up online. But that promote seems to have ended.

Now, i think you have to try your luck with the old method.

Technically, this should save M1 operational costs in long run and even other telcos in the region all giving esim conversion for free, can't understand the reason for the charge unless maybe it's the costs of esim exclusivity in sg(for the first year)being transfer down to end users...

Same as why caller-id need to pay. While prepaid all free.

They just wanna squeeze every cent available.

What I know is, for M1 Citibank users, can get waivers for most stuff:

Like DataPassport activation, $2.
Lost or replacement SIM.
Mostly New SIM.

If go to cyber fairs and apply card and SIM, think straightaway waiver upon first bill.
Cos everything is charged to the card.

Telco needs to recoup the cost to implement eSIM.

Pretty sure M1 prioritizes own people more on their network..

Got a few times Circle users dc or got connection issues but M1 users okay
Normally this is the network priority, it's just whether the prioritization is apparent or not.
- MNO Postpaid (new plans)
- MNO Postpaid (old plans)
- MNO Prepaid
- MVNO Postpaid
- MVNO Prepaid

So not surprising when there's network congestion, M1 customer gets priority.

Gotten a free replacement sim from M1 about 2 weeks back due to new phone but still having old sim card. Was told that if we report lost sim within 1 year the next one will be charged.

Then call in every week until they waive my eSIM
