Pre-order with Singtel SIM-Only Plan

For the first time at Singtel, customers can pre-order the new iPhones with a SIM-Only plan, unlike how it used to be an exclusive service to contract plan customers. Two different SIM-Only plans are offered with 12-month terms.

These customers can also take advantage of Singtel PayLater, an optional monthly installment plan for splitting the cost of an iPhone 14 model into 12, 24, or 36 monthly payments.

There's also a maximum of S$1,000 off when trading in an old device.

We've followed up with Singtel to learn more about the PayLater payments stated in the table above.

The red camp telco clarified that the Singtel PayLater values above are rounded up for better glance values of its monthly payments. Customers will still only pay the RRP of their preferred iPhone 14 model by the end of its payment term. 

For example, the iPhone 14 Pro Max 1TB (which retails at S$2,629) will not cost more than S$2,629 by the end of their Singtel PayLater term.

Additional 50GB for Mobile+

StarHub adds 50GB to all Mobile+ plans, for a period of 24 months.

15 September 2022 update: All customers who sign up for or recontract to StarHub’s new Mobile+ 2 year plans enjoy an additional 50GB of data monthly, for a period of 24 months.  

For example, the S$69 Mobile+ 2-year plan would have 80GB of 5G data before reverting back to 30GB at the end of 24 months. To receive the bonus data again, subscribers would need to renew their Mobile+ lines at the end of the 24 months. 

New SH customers signing up for a Mobile+ plan will receive the additional data, no matter which phone model they choose. Existing SH customers will need to recontract their current Mobile+ lines to trigger the extra 50GB for their plans.

StarHub did not specify when this promotion will end, but the green camp shared that it also applies to the iPhone 14/14 Pro series phones.
