Surely.its one of the best plan available. Sign & use first. $20 to $25 range with 15GB to 20GB is likely to be the new norm.
I tried to recontract for the 2nd time and it is approved. My new SIM-only plan will start on 14 Sep, at $20 monthly with 20GB, 1000 mins, 500 SMS and free trial of Entertainment Plus. Not sure why $5.35 is included in the "Prevailing Subscription Price" column in the service agreement when it is supposed to be free of charge.

No free caller ID why u still recontract? I port over to CL and nvr looked back...
I signed the Singtel 24-months Office 365 Home package in March 2019. So I am stuck with Singtel until 2021. No choice but to continue with Singtel.

Have to pay an early termination fee for the Office 365 Home if I jump ship.

Caller-ID is only free for those who port-in to Singtel. Other than this condition, caller-ID is not free.

So my Singtel 10GB SIM-only plan monthly bill is $25.35 + $5.35 caller-id +$9.90 Office 365 Home

Wah, really no choice. Actually u should tell the SingTel agent if that's how they treat their existing customers, then they shld be prepared to lose more subscribers...

He has no bargaining power as he already said he signed up with the Office 365 Home package.

I think that is the reason why Singtel didn't offer the free CID because Singtel knows customer is unlikely to jump ship.

I saw the Caller-ID (promo) with $5.36 and negative sign at the back.

No. Caller ID is not free. Only the no-contract plan is $20. Singtel did increase the price and reduced to only 2 plans, the 10GB 12-months plan and the 3GB no-contract plan.

Edit to add. Only if you port-in then the Caller ID is free.

last week when they emailed the contract to me, saw the same thing. i spoke to the cso, he told me to call again on the new contract activation date so that they can delete it. they cannot do it now for me because my current combo contract is still on going, and the new thing is not shown in their screen yet.

Not true.

I was on the SIM only plan. I think some existing customers also got this offer.

I asked the CSO why port-in and some existing customers are offered free caller-id but the cso insisted only port-in have free caller-id and refused to give me free caller-id.

Anyone has experience to share on porting over from 1 telco to another?
Specifically if it's recommended to only port over after existing contract end or can do it few days before since it take a few days to port over to new telco.

Can only port after contract end. Maybe can schedule it 1 day before because port in process usually take about 12~24 hours.

Do you mean $5.35? There isn't any negative sign at the back on my service agreement.

Go for Gomo or Giga safer. No worries limited time period for free caller ID. Telco always want to chu pattern and charge us for top up or extra.

Even circle line. After 12mth may revert back to $28/mth instead of $18/mth.
