Pay as you Go/ Contract Mobile

Post by Zeenit » Thu, 14 Aug 2008 5:28 pm

Hi

As we leave in a couple of weeks time and we will need to get local mobile sims due to the cost.

What I need to know is will I be able to still keep my Singapore numbers and get them transferred to a contract once we have all the paperwork we need to open up and account.

Thanks
Zeenit

Thanks SMS,
my parents in law are not very IT savvy and telling them we changed our number again is not worth the hassle.
This link is very useful

I would also recommend you download the Singlish Text Message language Translation software on to your mobiles otherwise you wont understand a single message locals send you!
