Re: Choosing Cellular Service Provider

just go prepaid. it makes it easier (and cheaper) to maintain if you leave singapore in future and need the phone number for OTP (banking, singpass, etc). i'm using m1 (both prepaid and post-paid), but starhub has a good roaming package on their prepaid service, so that's what i recommend. if one co...
