All 3 networks are pretty much the same price. A SIM with $10 worth of calls will cost $10 and add $7 for 1GB of data. It should last you the duration of your stay.

Hi,

All telecoms do have tourist mobile sim card.

If you need Micro-Sim:

a) Singtel’s prepaid 3G micro SIM cards are only available at Singtel retail stores

b) Starhub’s “Tourist” prepaid 3G micro SIM is available at Starhub retail shops, Esplanade MRT station, and selected shopping malls.

c) From what I know, M1 doesn't provide micro-sim - you need to "cut" the card yourself.

More information from Singtel/Starhub:

Just a quick note to add:

You need to provide identification when you buy a sim card in Singapore - so bring along your passport.

Hi, Despite of lot of surfing i could not get clarity on calling rates of singtel. Card cost S$ 8 , S$ 10 & S$15.

they say local calling rates 16 cent day time & 8 cent per minutes night time. but calling to India is 5 cent per minute flat ?? is it not strange that overseas calling to india cost one third to local one ?

how much for data ?

how much time it take to activate ? kindly provide detailed information. Thanks

You always pay the base rate of 8 cents off peak, and 16 cents peak. The other charges for overseas calls are on top of this.

Check website for surrender data bundles...

$8 sim has $8 of credit and $10 worth of calls. Credit can be used to buy other add ons like data bundles.
