of course you can use your DP to get a Sim card
If not, just have her bring her passport.
Well I am not making it up, I was there when it happened once. Wife had DP and passport with her was refused a SIM card and I had to give my EP.

As I say when I get home we will go into Toa Payoh and see if we can understand better what the issue is
I believe you that you're not making it up, but I'm still shocked. When my wife's friends would visit from Vietnam, they'd never have a problem getting sim cards. I'd just go with their passports (2-3 at a time sometimes) and get cards. More than a few times they'd just scan one passport and put all of the cards on it out of laziness/apathy.

oh wait

it may be a simple problem, if you were with her, I am sure the kaypoh shop fellow wanted to see YOUR details

like the time I went to buy smokes and the 711 aunty wanted to see my IC, and when I asked why she showed the notice saying no sale of tobacco to under age persons

rather than tell her off I produced my Driving licence, which she looked at and asked again if I have IC

I told her nicely if she want to know what colour IC I am holding or really want to check my date of birth ... as the DL has my date of birth ...

awkward moment later ... she said never mind .....
