There's quite a few types and makes. I bought mine in Sim Lim but Funan is the same anyway and with it being a Linksys they're a pretty safe purchase.

You don't want to get any of the cheaper brands, quality is pretty poor.

There are really simple ones that are not cordless but are instead a phone with a USB cable that plugs into the PC, not so good either.

Am hoping you good people can share your experience / advice on 2 questions I have:

(1) I have been unsuccessful in finding a cheap phone card for calls to South Africa - it seems every other country is listed expect for my home country! What do other expat South Africans use?

(2) After a trip to Ho Chi Minh city, I am keen to find out about hiring or leasing a vespa. If you've done this, what was your experience in terms of expenses, license requirements, road safety, parking etc. I've never ridden one before but it looks like such good fun!

thanks, I look forward to hearing from you

Hi also a new to all this and never posted anything before, we will be coming over 2 Singapore once my man has settled in his job and have so many ? and have been on different web pages but would be so great to hear from another South African and anyone else on advice with regards to living in Singapore. Never had to make a big move and find it all so over whelming and not sure where to start and how we will fit in as far as accommodation , life styles , food and sure you that are already that side went though all this and it has been covered in the past but would be so nice to get an updated view. I do realize life is what you make it but quite stressed out as all this is so new 2 me, I will have 1 child going 2 school and the other 18 years will have 2 go study and will be leaving 1 behind to carry on with studies at Varsity, have read a few different stories and not sure how I will cope with the weather and everyday living but my man had been contacting all over the last few years and we want 2 be together and try and get some normality in the crazy world and the situation we find ourselves in. Its hard as you read things but its not always that way when you arrive. We nearly joined him in Qatar but he said it was not really user friendly for a family and the heat was something else. Any advice would be so so appreciated and sorry if you have covered all this before.
