Oh, but I should qualify something... so far I can only get SMS and data to work. I have lost MMS and FaceTime functionality, and am working on it. Will report back if I figure out how to get around it.

It seems like there are different versions when you search online, but I'm using the following combination for SingTel.
VPN: e-ideas

There's a website which lists the info for StarHub / M1:

Thanks, zzm. Got my hands on a Gevey Ultra and tried it last night. Apparently they now have this "automatic" process whereby dialing 112 is unnecessary. It's supported up to iOS 4.3.3. The "manual" process supports up to iOS 4.3.5, although some users online reported success with iOS5 on older base...

Has anyone managed to do this successfully yet? I have an iPhone4 from SoftBank (Japan), version 4.3.5 on baseband 4.10.01. I've already jailbroken it but need the carrier unlock - am thinking of ordering the GEVEY Ultra from applenberry, as they ship internationally.

Not that you probably don't know by now, but the east side is definitely too far for a young child. It took me about 75min door-to-door to get to Lakeside campus using a combination of buses and the East-West MRT line. The Canadian school advises their students to get off at Chinese Garden, since it...

I unexpectedly received my approval today for PR as well. Applied on 4 Nov 2011 as the spouse of a Singaporean citizen. Was on a LTVP and had lived in SG with my husband for ~ 5 weeks at the time of application. I'm Canadian but ethnically Chinese, and have been married just under 2 years (registere...

Sorry, someone mentioned NTUC Income above... I believe they are the only ones who offer shield-type (hospitalization) plans to foreigners on an LTVP without extra stipulations. This would be useful for someone who is here alone and searching for a job on an EPEC/LTVP. The plan is called Enhanced In...

I will be living in Singapore with a LTVP under the spousal scheme and have been searching for health insurance just to cover hospitalizations i.e., a shield-type plan, until I find a job and have either a WP/EP, or an employer medical plan of my own. So far, it looks like Prudential offers the PRUs...

Thanks for the info, FaeLLe. I'd bet being married for just under 2 years, and living in different countries would certainly not help my case for PR :wink: By LTSVP, do you mean: (1) the one issued by ICA to those who have a SC spouse, or (2) the one that you'd apply for after obtaining an EPEC? Are...

Am a bit late to this discussion, but I have one other data point to offer for anyone else in this situation. Both my husband (Singaporean citizen) and I (foreigner) were living overseas but wanted to marry in Singapore and did not have sufficient vacation leave. Apparently the ROM allows a 'Special...

Is EPEC the best way?

Hi, I'm a Canadian citizen married to a Singaporean citizen (ROMed Dec 2009 @ Royal China), and we were planning to move to SG by the end of this year. Naively, I assumed that it would be straightforward for me to obtain PR status, but from reading some of the forum posts it appears that the current...
