Mobile phone incoming call cost?

Post by dolby » Thu, 05 May 2005 6:10 pm

I posted this on the Computers/Mobile Phone forum but no-one answered, so I thought I might get a better response here...

Hi, I've just picked up one of the StarHub prepaid Green SIM cards, and heard rumours that I have to pay for incoming calls. Is this correct - if so, is it the same cost as for making calls? Also, does it cost more if I receive a call from the UK?

Thanks...Dan

Thanks :-)

Yeah, the Starhub website section on charges was a little unhelpful, in that they just put the price for "calls" but I guess they assume that you know you pay for incoming calls, and make it a special feature when you don't.

if they just write "call" or "local airtime"... it means both incoming & outgoing calls, unless they stated incoming or outgoing specifically.
