Best prepaid mobile plan for a long stay in Singapore

Hi I have moved to Singapore recently, Will be staying here for a long period.

Pls can you suggest any good prepaid mobile plans to go for, With and without data both please.

My preference is to go for a without data plan with good local and international calling rates (India). But if I get a good deal I am fine with having data plan as well. Do no wish to spend lots. At suggestions?

Many hanks in advance.

1. Re: Best prepaid mobile plan for a long stay in Singapore

hello,

There are 3 mobile telephony providers:

SingTel

M1

StarHub

All offer competitively-priced subscription plans for local and overseas calls. some subscriptions are pre-paid, while others are post-paid. Post-paid subscriptions can be bundled with attractive offers for new mobile phones and other discounts, but they require the signing of a 1 or 2 year contract. Early contract termination incurs heavy penalties. Check with your company if corporate discounts for new subscriptions are possible. To apply for a new mobile line, you will need to bring along your Employment Pass and Passport.

All 3 mobile providers have more or less the same plan. Problem with prepaid plan is you need to top up before expiry. Since you will be here for long period why not take a postpaid plan? You can start with the lowest plan and move up if you need more.

For long distance dialing you are better off using phone cards than mobile, or if you have wifi access use skype to call is cheaper than any telco's plan.
