Hi,

camera phones are not allowed in HTA. Whether or not your CM or FI will allow it is very unlikely, however, it does not hurt to ask. During confinement, or at any point during your stay at HTA if you are caught with a camera phone, or any contraband I T em, not only your squad, but your whole intake will die a horrible death.

And yes, original certificates not necessary. You will, just need to submit one copy to the SAs, and another for safekeeping in case your CM needs it.
so possible to just bring it over and ask them to keep it somewhere if its confirmed that it isn't allowed and get it back when i book out? or any idea if mp3 players are allowed. thanks for the response btw

My suggestion for you is to buy a cheap non camera nokia phone with mp3 or ask the ah beng phone shop to take out your old phone's camera if you have one lying around.

From my experiences it really depends of your FI, CM, Coy Com and how "stupid" your squad is.

For confinement, I would play it safe, get a cheap Nokia, it's only $50. During your confinement, you ask your CM or FI if mp3 players are allowed.

From my experience, it depends on the coy commander for these kind of things. For example, the intake before me was very strict and not allowed any leeways till they were about to POP. My intake was allowed to bring in headphones on our first book in.

If you bring in a camera phone, charger, or portable charger, you will be asked to put it into a bag, and pass it to your parents when you see them during the lunch.

Agreed, but now is apparently much more lenient. But definitely not as jialat as your NCC days.

What I can tell you about the punishments is that most of the time it will be pushups, or sit-ups. And for those who have injuries, Buddha claps.

is it similar to the saf one where you can just remove or sand the cameras so that they allow you to use otherwise? probably go in and ask before getting something after i book out only really need phone for music tbh.

any ideas if the enlistment dates on https://www.cmpb.gov.sg/cmpb/before-...istment-dates/ isnt updated or is that one for army only because according to this im not in bp just noticed it

Hi, if you are looking for a non camera Nokia, may I suggest the Nokia N130, it is a but of an older phone, but it has a micro SD card slot that you can put music on. Plus, it has a headphone jack. http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_130-6570.php

And yes, you can remove the camera, or just ask the shop to put a sticker over the camera, essentially blocking the camera from working. (Personally I think the latter is a much better idea, cheaper and all you have to do after POP is to tell the shop to remove the sticker and you can sell it, or even sell it to someone going to enlist.......)

As for the enlistment dates, the one on CMPB's website is only for those enlisting into Tekong. You should follow the date on your enlistment letter. Whether you are BP or not, as long as you did not get Silver and above for your NAPFA in Poly/JC/ITE, or if you never took it, you will enlist the same time as those in BP, all going in for 8 weeks of PTP.

so apparently i might not be able to get my graduation certificate before i enlist next week because school isn't willing to allow me to collect certificate earlier since i was just told person in charge responds in 3-5 working days while also being told by a lecturer i will be able to get it on Wednesday previously

will be making a trip down to school day before and hopefully be able to get certificate but in case, any ideas if i can defer on that part? pretty much only thing im short of from your list now. also thanks for the list has been pretty helpful

Hi,

Maybe you might try and get your transcript, or similar form of certification? As you can give them a copy of your transcript, then when your certificates come you can copy them and hand them to your CM.

And no problem, I'm happy to help any future enlistees of the police force!
