When I first saw the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (S$38) available from Apple Singapore online store, the shipping estimate was 2-3 weeks. But regardless, I still went ahead and bought it together with my brother’s Apple iPad Case (S$58).
I went ahead and place my order on 27th July 2010, to my surprise the next day I received an email saying both items have been shipped and I received it today via DHL.
Here is the official word from SingTel on what to expect from the launch of iPhone 4 tonight and over the weekends:
SingTel has chosen a new and bigger venue to launch the new iPhone 4 this year at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre. We are selling the phones at a centralised location so that all customers with appointments can buy their phones from one place conveniently. The larger venue also allows customers to be entertained by interactive demo zones where they can access and learn about SingTel’s latest mobile apps ranging from navigation to shopping apps. Customers can also enjoy food and beverages, plus song and dance performances.
Ordered my MicroSIM cutter from Deal Extreme for US$20.00, but now the price has dropped to US$17.43. In case you are unfamiler with Deal Extreme, the price stated includes free shipping. Placed my order on the 11th July 2010 and got it delivered to me on the 22nd July 2010. Took about 11 days before it reaches my house. I think it is because of supplier’s stock issue as when I check the status, it was stuck at “Waiting For Supplier” for a few days.
Using the MicroSIM cutter is pretty straight forward, just place your SIM card into the slot and ensure that the slanted edge matches and press the cutter handle down real hard!
Finally, SingTel now support MicroSIM cards in their MultiSIM plans, however the price is 2x more expensive the normal SIM cards and from the description on the VAS page under “Others” tab, it was mentioned that then can be only 1 MicroSIM card in any combination of MultiSIM.
So if you got 4 SIM cards, only 1 of them can be MicroSIM and the other 3 is normal SIM. Perhaps it is due to the initial hight stock demand. But I believed that it will change eventually once the dust has settle.
