having switched to M1 from starhub recently (november), i must say m1's customer service sucks big time.

i'm contemplating moving back to starhub. i had been calling m1's hotline from OUTSIDE OF SINGAPORE but got no operator!

first call, i waited for 30mins.

second call, i waited for 15 minutes.

third call, i waited for 5 minutes. all 3 tries i hung up voluntarily.

when i finally got an operator on my fourth try, she babbled a bunch of crap instead of letting me off the phone quickly.

before moving to m1, they were not at all helpful to a prospective customer, nor flexible at all (with regards to registering me as a customer - long story, but m1 people are idiots).

there's no point being the cheapest when customer service is crap when you need it.

AND WHAT'S THE POINT TO YOUR POST ANYWAY?????? (i just got off the phone with m1, so you can tell i'm real mad)

Hmmmmm.... disgruntled employee? IP resolves to Cyberway Pte Ltd and this company was bought by Starhub in 1999.

For a change, and it would be a change, maybe the only winner here will be the customer! Actually we are still the losers as even with the price war, the rates are comparatively high.

Too right it's good. Where was it originally? I've not been reading the thread that closely as it's too rich for my blood anyway! :(

Well... see my thread...

Not sure if that is M1 policy or not... or if Starhub have the same policy... or if the policy even exists at all...

M1 price plans are better... but if you have to pay the Value plan price of the iPhone regardless of your subscription... maybe not...

I'm using a prepaid Starhub card w/ my iphone (it's an unlocked US version). Sometimes I spend 2-6 Sing a day. But considering the freedom of the top-up cards, it's convenient for the short-term traveler
