It’s a situation many smartphone users are familiar with – you’ve been with the same telco for a while and are looking to move on, because there are newer, trendier options on the horizon that seem like they’re a better fit.

But when you dig a little deeper into your existing telco’s offerings, you may end up being pleasantly surprised. If you look at how the established players in the telco game have evolved, you’ll find that some telcos, like Singtel, offer something for every need.

IF YOU NEED A NEW LINE FOR THE KIDS

Bouncing with colour and character is Singtel’s latest all digital no-contract plan – GOMO. While its mascots are all googly-eyed, the deals here are far from cartoonish. This plan gives you 20GB worth of data, 200 minutes for calls and 200 SMSes for just S$20 a month.

The plan includes free incoming calls and caller ID, so you can keep an eye out on who your kids have been connecting with. This no-contract plan lets you keep their mobile phone usage in check too, because with month-to-month options, you can withhold those phone privileges if someone’s been misbehaving.

If the young ones are heavy data users, you might want to choose one of the three SIM Only plans. This 12-month plan from Singtel is one of its most affordable data-centric offerings – it provides 40GB worth of data, easily fulfilling the needs of data-hungry kiddos who love their games and videos. At only S$46.75 a month, the plan also comes with 150 minutes of talktime and 500 SMSes, with the flexible option to upsize at any time. Plus, you can lease phones from Singtel from as low as S$29 per month.

MobileShare is Singtel’s option for a supplementary line at S$12.90 a month. Your child will have his own number, tagged to your line. Both of you will share the bundled talktime, SMS and data that come with the main plan. Best of all, for each MobileShare line subscription, the pool gets an additional 1GB of data. That’s why sharing is truly rewarding.

IF YOU NEED MORE DATA (AND LET’S BE HONEST, WHO DOESN’T?)

If we look at the habits of mobile users, having sufficient data easily ranks as a top priority. And when it comes to weekends, it’s best spent binging on your favourite entertainment choices, or sharing those social updates on various platforms. If this sounds like you, the XO mobile plans promise to fulfil your data needs.

Every XO mobile plan not only comes with a generous data base plan that goes up to 70GB, but also unlimited weekend data usage for 24 months and beyond. There’s no catch or additional cost; just sign up at any store or even online, any time.

But if you’re not ready to commit, try out DATA X INFINITY. Power up your Combo 3 (or above) mobile plan with just S$1 a day, and propel your surfing routine with full-speed 4G data. With blazing speeds and no data limit, you can afford to stay connected anywhere 24/7.

IF YOU NEED MORE VALUE

When you tweak your postpaid Singtel plan to suit your lifestyle, be ready for additional bonuses that make the deal that much sweeter.

Hop onto the Combo, XO and SIM Only plans, and be entertained by the blockbusters that come your way. Catch exciting titles and trending series on HOOQ, HBO Go, or Entertainment Plus absolutely free throughout the 24 months of your plan. Or if you’re considering GOMO, enjoy exclusive deals and promotions that are refreshed every quarter. GOMO Gifts currently include 50 per cent off mains at The Drunken Poet and Meat & Malts, and a one-for-one deal on signature cocktails at Jekyll & Hyde.

And because being connected and mobile-ready is core to any urbanite’s routine, Singtel makes it easy to do so with a wide range of devices to choose from. What’s more, the purchase of devices comes with different convenient payment options.

Opt for installment plans that lend you the freedom of monthly payments for your mobile gadget. Or better yet, stay ahead of the upgrading game with a leasing plan. You get to enjoy the latest phone model every year for an affordable monthly fee starting from S$28. If you take a fancy to a particular make, you can call dibs on owning the phone any time. There’s no credit card, minimum income or deposit required.

Bundle your mobile, fibre broadband and Singtel TV subscriptions together via Singtel Circle to enjoy privileges such as discounts of up to 30 per cent off monthly subscription fees, handset upgrade fee waivers and 24/7 complimentary access to Stingray Music to line up your daily soundtrack.
