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.
of cos i know last time everyone send SMS... last time police wear shorts too... but we are obviously NOT talking about the past now....

wacky

Chatted with circles.life.
Told told me that the $0 plan will be moved to the $5 plan soon. No dates yet.
Will cancel my plan if they do that. Luckily already slowly move to zero1, so cancel my CL plan also no problem

Sms still have its place ba. There are times where sms can go thru even when you have low network signal hee.
Ya SMS good for back up in case of data congestion or WhatsApp goes down.

If 3G/4G data is down or overloaded for whatever freak reason, only sms might still work.

Are you sure? Where is your source? I thought someone said it will be migrated to the $5 plan in time to come.

Their FAQ indicated forever.

"We’re glad you asked! The $0 /mo Flexi Plan is for $0 /mo. FOREVER!"

But you should know nothing lasts forever.

When the change comes, the FAQ has to change.

I am not lamenting the lack of unlimited SMS. My issue is the telcos now treats SMS as a cash cow.

If you think SMS is dead globally, you should see the USA. With unlimited SMS, they can't be bothered to use any other messaging apps.

Is that an official statement or rumor?

If circles say nothing. We can safely assume the $0 Flexi plan won't be going away yet.
