Phone service in Singapore help!

Post by MichaelMurphy » Wed, 10 Jul 2019 4:16 pm

Hey everyone,

In August I am beginning my first job, and moving to Singapore in the process! My main concern is what to do about having data throughout Singapore for the years I am there. Does anyone have experience in this that can help me out? Do I just get a second phone with a Singapore sim card or do I just add an international sim card to my phone?

Thanks in advance! :D :?

Two phones is a bummer; better you get one dual SIM phone for your 'native' SIM and a local SIM for your 4G. That'll see you right.

Yes it would. It just leaves you the option to filter out those numbers no longer relevant by not notifying them of your new local number. (sadly, I've had the same number forever as we didn't have cell phones when I got here, we did have pagers though I never had one).
