SIM Only - 15GB
Cost/mth - 20
24 mths - 480
Phone(Xs 256GB) - 1340
Total cost for 24 mths - 1340+480 = 1820
Must compared to the price&plan telco is offering. Usually new phone and iphone, plan are more worth while, but with recently drop in iphone, time have changed

never do that... cos that's how the telcos fool u into thinking 2-year contract is more worthwhile...

https://mobilesquare.com.sg/collecti...-256gb-4gb-ram

it may be only true if the phone just released and u cannot wait to get it... then buying at 3rd parties will be close or same as RRP...

so if u account for 3rd party price... ur total cost for SIM only plan is about the same as 2-yr contract... and u get more data and no contract...

Right! Lets say the 2 years contract plus the fone give u a "value", but that only applies if one need that fone or u willing to sell it to get back that value. One really had to do a realistic calculation for making that decision hee.

thanks bro..

currently on combo 6 but under utilized

singtel sent me letter to recontract with 200 voucher

did some calculations

XO - 10GB
Cost/mth - 48
24 mths - 1152
Phone(Xs 256GB) - 878
Total cost for 24 mths - 1152+878-200(voucher) = 1830
SIM Only - 15GB
Cost/mth - 20
24 mths - 480
Phone(Xs 256GB) - 1340
Total cost for 24 mths - 1340+480 = 1820
So comparable cost if you just buy the phone from 3rd party shops + SIM only plan.

The benefits are you get more data and no contract!

Downside is you need to cough up more money upfront.

My contract is expiring soon, 3weeks.
And ST sent SMS for the recontract promotion “Limited time offer! Get 20GB at only $20/mth with the best SIM ONLY plan. Plus, FREE Caller ID , 1000 Mins talktime & 500 SMS. Offer ends 2 Sept '19.”
Everything is good except the 12mths contract 😣

12 months is not long. Even if say a better deal comes out 6 months later, u only paying $20 per month now. Don't think a better deal will give significant savings too.
If I were u I just hoot liao. No need think so much.

well if u are able to manage your finances well (i.e. not going into debt)... to me coughing up more $$$ up front is not a "downside"... it's more a psychological thing... u may cough up more $$$ now.. but u will save more $$$ every month for next 2 years...!

My SIM only is $25.

Hopefully, I got a similar offer in Dec.

Singtel network is a big plus. If it's me, I will go for it.

Hmm. The renewal promo not bad, 20GB, free CID, 1k mins? If you don't mind the contract then go renew. But, otherwise you have other choices like giga, gomo, circles.

The one that might be better is tpg's offer at the end of the year

But, singtel network confirm better than tpg. Unless tpg plan is way cheaper than singtel, which is unlikely considering they also need budget to build the infrastructure

Not bad but do call them to ask if simonly perks remain after that 12 mths and not reverting cut. If yes, its very favorable, as this offer is off the main stream ones.
