just got clarification from Starhub customer care...

(1) if the contract period hasn't ended yet but you are now able to recontract, they'll charge a downgrade fee if you move from the old S/M/L plans to the SIM-only plans

(2) if my contract ends on 22 December, it only means I can switch to another telco or sign up for a Starhub SIM-only plan on 23 December

Yes, to put it simply, if you have any of the 24mths plan. To use the sim only plan, you will need to complete the entire 24mths before changing to the new plan.

You are better off staying with SingTel for the SIM only plan.

Back when I took up M1 sim only there were quite abit of complains on Singtel sim only. Even my friend working there told me to hold first. I guess things gets better over time

You can recontract to other combo plan but not sim only. Combo plan is like installment payment to your phone subsidy hence you need to finish 24 month before you change to sim only.
I'm currently on Singtel SIM-only 12-months contract, ending next month. I tried to recontract last week, staying on SIM-only plan.

My point is they should learn their lesson and stay far away from phone contracts

Just go for the 12 months Singtel SIM only if you are concerned about network speed and signal.

If you have used the same number for the last many years, waiting another 12 months is easy.
