Cheapest SIM card in Singapore for Calls and internet usage

Post by FarazSubhani » Thu, 29 Aug 2019 1:53 pm

Hi Everyone,

May be this might be an irrelevant post but I would really like some help.
After searching through internet I got these 3 sim cards widely being used SINGTEL,STARHUB and M1.
I am not much aware of the tariff plans but I want a cheapest one for local calls and internet usage and even having provision for international calling.
Please can someone help me with a SIM offering cheap tariff(can be apart from the above 3 ) and also where can I buy the same.
My main usage will be local calls and internet.

Would be very helpful if someone can throw some light.

You want to use all the features of a SIM like local calls, international, internet. What more is left? just SMS?

Look for the prepaid plans of Singtel, Starhub or M1. Or for SIM Only plans of the same providers.

Alternatively, look for the telco called as TPG, that is offering 2GB data SIM free for 12 months (no guarantee as they can withdraw the offer even before 12 months).

O:) Agree with singapore flyer.

You can consider TPG. No sign plan, no monthly top up. They offer month 2GB for 12 months. But do take note that TPG will not be able to call out to other telcom. Only able to call out to people that are using TPG as well. I think for free. But you can use whatsapp call since whatsapp call is running by internet basis. It definitely save you alot!

I did get 1 for myself, to use it as spare one. hehe. Oh ya! Each person is entitle to get 2 number from TPG.

Hope this can help you bro. :D :D :D :D

TPG only can make call thru VOLT. The other party phone must thave VOLT too.

Underground no data signal.
Some shopping centre basement does not have data signal too

If i am not wrong, local mobile meaning to say if the other party is holding on to a TPG number also right? Or any other telcom is workable too? :???:

Which models are supported is listed on the TPG website/forum. Please note that TPG can be used as a addon SIM for mobile data. I will not use it as the primary SIM yet.
