Chatted with circles.life.
Told told me that the $0 plan will be moved to the $5 plan soon. No dates yet.
I can foresee a lot of termination and cancellation

Heads up guys, StarHub has added 100 SMS into their SIM Only plans. No GIRO or CC needed.




Also, their advertisement is clear as day as to what Telco S and Telco M are. Even the colours have been added for further "illustration".
Until 8 Sep only.

I guess you were too young to know but not too long ago everyone sent SMS and I even had a student plan with unlimited SMS.

Now telco greedy and decide to drop unlimited SMS but it backfired thanks to the quick adoption of apps like whatsapp etc.

When I was chasing skirts, averagely can send over 2k SMS per month. When M1 started charging then gotta reduce usage.

Singtel: Dear Customer, we have received your online request to sign up for a service. We regret to inform that your account is not due for re-contract Sim only plan for 9xxxxxx. Please contact 1688 for more information/ clarification. Thank you.
I have received similar SMS today. Singtel is unable to process my recontract application as due on middle of next month.

I tried to recontract last week before receiving the recontract offer, but now as I have received the recontract offer, I will try again next week when the contract enters its last month (12th month).

SMS is still needed. Back then, all was super excited with unlimited sms/mms. When Android started, SMS was still popular, WhatsApp back then wasn't that popular or wasn't on traction yet.

Well, sometimes we really need SMS. Cases like you just need to text someone you just want to contact once, just use SMS. What for do I need to add his contact just to whatsapp the person? Also there isn't guarantee WhatsApp will work 100% of the time, sometimes even with 3G network or 4G network, whatsapp messages can't be sent out. WhatsApp sometimes will also have downtime. Hence, SMS comes into play. I don't understand why when WhatsApp is down, whole community goes crazy, there is still SMS.

I don't use WhatsApp.

I am sending SMS to my bosses and colleagues for work related updates.

Why SMS? Because I don't want to put too much attention with WA.

I just send a couple of SMS and that's it.

If the other parties have to pay for SMS, then good for me. I get more peace.

Anything urgent, we can talk on the phone.

U are like the typical middle age uncle finds superiority in ignorance

I not going to comment about your occupation that finds communicating with SMS productive.

Guess you never had to use communication apps like Microsoft teams or slack which is widely used in businesses.
