Thanks to SingTel and HTC for organising the Most Checked-in Party at Zouk . It was awesome! I was slightly late for the party due to work commitments but better late than never arrive at all!

First thing upon reaching Zouk is for you to register for the party. There are a few computers outside for you to login to your Facebook account, upon logging in, you need to like SingTel’s Facebook Page and then allow SingTel & HTC Event Facebook Application to access your Facebook details. This is to allow the RFID tagging to work.

SingTel’s Priority Pass Mobile Broadband Service

Interesting service by SingTel. These days almost everyone is using an iPhone, Android or Blackberry and all the phones are connected to data services. Not forgetting those 3G USB dongles are connected to the same data network as well. If you paid only for mobile broadband, you are also sharing the same bandwidth with those who paid for mobile plans that comes with data services. But with Priority Pass, mobile broadband users get higher priority (in terms of speed & bandwidth) than mobile plan data services users.

Also, we can expect commercial LTE services from SingTel by the end of the year.

SingTel Prepaid Card Data Plan

I can’t seem to find the data rates for unlimited usage on the SingTel 3G $15 hi!Card. It just says it has S$18 value instead of just S$15. It also states “Pay Per Use Data at discounted rate (50% off): 0.27¢ per kb (charged in blocks of 5kb)” which means it is expensive if you are going towards data usage.

That is not really true. SingTel has a 1GB plan which cost S$7 for a period of 7 days for prepaid card users. I think that is more than enough. I hardly use more than 1GB per month on my iPhone 4. You can find most of the optional Value Added Services (VAS) for prepaid plans here.

SingTel Tag Lite

SingTel does not have “Tag Lite” mentioned anywhere on their webpages. The only way to know more about it is to go to any SingTel Hello Stores. I first got to know it when I was surfing Hardware Zone Forums and specifically in the “MultiSIM with SingTel to use on iPad” thread.

Tag Lite Supplementary Plan allows users to share bundled data between supplementary line and main line.
