I-Phone

Postby invogue » Fri, 30 Jan 2009 10:45 pm

I'm moving to Singapore in one month and I want to have an i-phone to use for emails and maps so I dont get lost. If I buy the i-phone here, can I join a network in Singapore or can anyone recommend any good phone networks? The problem is I will only be in Singapore for 3 months, before relocating to China

But wouldn't they have to join Singtel on a 2-year plan? It was that way at Christmas. This would pose a problem.

you can join any network you want that is supported/partnered by your home country mobile telco when roaming. no need for any contract.
