SingTel prepaid port over to postpaid - which way to get it done and cheap
 
SingTel prepaid port over to postpaid - which way to get it done and cheap

Want to port over to tpg... But cannot port over prepaid

Got other way? As cheap as possible

SingTel Prepaid -> SingTel SIM-Only NO contract (may need to pay not only base sub of $20/mth, need to pay $48.15 SIM Card + Registration) -> TPG

SingTel Prepaid -> StarHub Prepaid (pay $8, try to drain all the balances) -> StarHub SIM Only (just base sub, no SIM Card and registration cost) -> TPG

But the biggest question is, is your SingTel Prepaid hi!Card the only line? If yes, do note that TPG haven't cover some places, like train tunnels and maybe some underground.

if need to retain the prepaid Number and cover those place that TPG is not ready, just use dual SIM phone. one for prepaid and one for TPG, the best combination.

IMHO.
You may want to take into consideration if TPG roaming serves your needs.
Once you port over to postpaid, I don't think you can do the reverse.
My understanding is that one can port prepaid to another telco prepaid.
For myself, ideally, would be a prepaid with good roaming options for 1st SIM and TPG as 2nd SIM.

Actually for data for scanning of those dumb qrcode and WhatsApp

Let's assume 2gb a month

Actually prepaid or postpaid cheaper?

IMHO.
If don't make calls, double prepaid should be cheaper.
The $15 M Card, got about 4GB over 3 months.
QRCode and Whatsapp don't use much data unless Whatsapp Voice.

$15 M Card
- $15 Main Balance
- Free 4GB 120 days
- Promo: Free 4GB (valid 30 days)
- 180 days validity

Could be other options out there.

Postpaid. Cos the SIM-Only war made 3GB-6GB plans already at $10 or less per month. VIVIFI Lite (3GB), redONE Amazing8 (3GB), Giga 5GB (5GB), MyRepublic Lite (6GB), TPG 50GB SIM Only (50GB).
On prepaid, 1GB 30 day plan is alr $10/month. No talktime, no SMS bundle etc.

Of course, if you take advantage of port in promos on SingTel and M1 Prepaid, your actual payment of $10/mth will be reduced significantly. But it depends whether you want to plan for all these or not, which can be quite tedious.

As fair as I know, on Gomo website they said can switch over for free (besides paying $20 upfront for Gomo). I just did it in May this year.

Singtel Prepaid to Singtel Postpaid - FOC and then to Gomo ($20/$30 plan)

Just go to a Singtel store and tell them you have a Singtel Prepaid card and want to switch to Gomo, they will give you a Singtel Postpaid sim only starter pack (valid for one month) for free. Just have to switch over by signing up on Gomo before the expiry of the credits.

What the starter pack includes? And FOC is referring to both the SingTel SIM-only registration / SIM card charges and the subscription fees?

The Singtel starter pack SIM only is the base no contract SIM only plan. $20 monthly, 3GB, 0 sms, 0 mins. Nothing else.

You can port out the next day

However you will need to pay for how many days u use the starter pack.

Oh, they waived off the $48.15 SIM Card and Registration costs on that plan. The first month for ST Prepaid upgrade is free too, or need to pay for 1 bill cycle?

Huh so is it free for first month, as long as you port out by the end, or need to pay?? So confusing!

Yihaoong 13-07-2020 12:40 PM

Free sim free registration

Only pay for how many days u park your number at singtel postpaid.
