Ok i found out liao. Will revert back to 20gb for $25 with no talktime no sms no cid.
Thanks. That is much better. Basically S$30 with Caller ID. 20GB Data, 150 Mins, 500 SMS.

There are two good offers from SingTel previously for selected customers. Look like they are open it now to more customers.

SIM Only Plan

SIM Only Plan at $20/mth with 20GB + 1000 mins + 500 SMS + Free Caller ID for 12 months

SIM Only Plan at $25.35/mth with 30GB + 1000 mins + 500 SMS + Free Caller ID for 12 months

The 1st option is available to all customers now?

my wife uses less than 2gb in 25 days.

0 talktime. subscribed 021 IDD for her to make call overseas, but she's sticking to line/WhatsApp call.

she's currently on mysim 70(e), which I'm paying $53 per month.

is there any cheap plan that is suitable for her?

You have to finish your 24 mths contract before changing plans. After 24mths, you can consider gigs $10/mth with 5GB data 100sms 100mins.

Does giga stop letting you use when youve used up the quota? Prefer such plans to charging for excess usage

Yes. Once bundled used up, you need to topup on app before you can continue using. Though you can still receiving incoming calls as it is free.

Giga $10 for 5 GB data or Vivifi lite $8.80 for 3 GB data.

The cheapest and most suitable plan would be circles life $5 Plan for 2GB per month, or if you want to buffer for 1GB more, then redone's amazing8 for $8 or Vivifi Lite for $8.80

Haha, that is me.

SingTel Combo 2, no CIS, S$42.9 (before 10% discount) +S$5 Caller ID +S$ 5.9 for Data x 3, just to get 6GB data. You can say it is crazy. But ...

Reason is to have SingTel Circle annual handset upgrade. Plan is to buy iPhone for my wife every two years (and an Android mid-end phone for myself or my mum in law). The device subsidy translate to be about S$750 or S$31.25 per month for 24months. Or actually more since my wife likes to have 256GB minimum iPhone because of the needs to capture education videos for my kids. And I do not like to buy iPhones from small shops, only from Apple or authorized sellers. The kids are also used to iOS device like iPhone and iPads.

If not for the iPhone, I would have changed to SIM only plan. I myself can live with low end Android phones (tested S$199 Realme 5 SD665 3GB/64GB phone).

And yes I will convert the other Combo 2 plan to SIM only later this month once its contract expires.
sorry.. yes it's crazy... so u are still paying more after device subsidy right...?? where u could always buy the iphone from official apple shop... nobody says u need to live with low end phones...

moreover... without phone contract means you can buy your iphone when the iphone is newly launched... instead of having to wait until contract is up...


regards,
wacky

No I am not paying more. I have done the maths.

I say device subsidy is about S$31.25 per month.

I pay S$49.51 per month.

Effectiely I pay S$18.26 per month.

And actually the subsidy is more like S$850 with iPhone (about S$500) plus Android (about S$350) combination, then it is 35.41 per month subsidy. Effectively I pay only S$14.1 per month.

There are other perks like free Stingray music, free Sunday data and SingTel TV subsidy (50% off SingTel TV package, free S$5 SingTel TV box rental).

Occasionally SingTel also gives other perks, like 4 months of SingTel Cast pack recently so I can watch CNN and History channels.

In the end it is just a choice. I am okay with 6GB data now, actually I can make do with 2GB plus 1GB Circles.Life without the S$5.9 Data x 3 as well. In fact I only started to pay the Data x 3 add-on in Oct 2019. It is a hassle and I am willing to pay the add-on.
