M1 launches Singapore’s first post-and prepaid dual SIM solution in a single handset

M1 will offer its customers the convenience of seamless dual SIM access in a single handset when it introduces M1 DuoSIM tomorrow.

The first to be launched in Singapore, M1 DuoSIM will be available on the postpaid plan or as a prepaid card. Customers of other local and foreign operators will be able to use the M1 DuoSIM together with their existing SIM card in the same handset.

M1 DuoSIM is a paper-thin SIM card that is mounted on the customer’s existing SIM card and inserted into the same SIM card slot in the customer’s handset.

With M1 DuoSIM, customers can easily separate their personal and business calls by switching between lines instead of carrying two handsets. Visitors auto-roaming in Singapore with their home operator can also enjoy local calling rates and other M1 prepaid benefits such as free local talktime, free local SMS and free IDD021 calls to 13 destinations when they use the prepaid M1 DuoSIM M Card on the same handset.

“With the mobile phone penetration rate in Singapore at well over the 100% mark, we believe the convenience of the M1 DuoSIM will greatly appeal to the many mobile users who for various business and social reasons find it necessary to subscribe to multiple lines. The ability of the M1 DuoSIM to be put in the same mobile device as another operator’s SIM card will now make it even more attractive for them to do so,” said P Subramaniam, M1’s Chief Marketing Officer.

Customers will enjoy free mobile subscription for three months when they sign up for M1 DuoSIM on any of the M1 postpaid plans - SunSaver, SunSaver Plus, and SunShare plans - before 31 October 2008.

M1 DuoSIM and DuoSIM M Card will both be available at all M1 shops and most of its exclusive distributors from 23 September.
