i know, its a real PITA to top up every 15days, in my case im usually travelling outside singapore two weeks in a month. it doesn't make any sort of sense for me to go post paid when i'm shuttling back and forth.x9200 wrote:You have to remember to top it up and I am not too good in this - its a dongle I use under linux or iOS, it doesn't tell me, hey, top me up please, and even if it did I have better things to do then topping it up every 15 days.rajagainstthemachine wrote:i've always been prepaid for the last 4 years i've been here, and doing 10$ topups, the bare minimum.
I don't see a point to subscribe to useless shoddy services i don't need.
10$ top ups give me 500MB of data for 15 days, its enough to check emails/whatsapp for 15 d and then i top up 10$ again. (pro tip: better to do a 10$ top up twice a month than doing 20$ once because these asshats give you 500Mb per topup irrespective of the amount)
I had the same problem with the mobile bb I keep for my mother back at home. I wasted a few $100 over 5-6y just so I could have a break in this idiotic topping up every few months. Finally I convinced her to get a post-paid plan. Huge relief and savings.
Other thing I have my workphone which i can use to call anywhere in the world for free, so i offload all my international calling on that one.
