    Default Queries on Singtel's flexibility

    I currently own and use a Nokia N78 mobile handset. Recently, I found that the phone is no longer performing how it used to at its peak. I also find it a little too thick. Ok, just trying to justify the change to another phone

    Anyway, my contract with Singtel will reach the 1 year mark at exactly February 21. I'm wondering if I'll be allowed to recontract these few days and pay the $100 penalty that is incurred on those who decide to get a new phone after the first year.

    Thanks for any input

    Their broadband services are fine IMO. Works well with everything you encounter problems with. Singtel also beats Starhub for P2P purposes....

    Anyway, I'm currently 1 month before the 1 year mark.

    shouldn't you be asking singtel instead since the contract is with them?

    call their customer service and ask if they can give you a voucher of 100 to waive the 100 penalty. Explain that u are a customer and u are renewing the contract... I mean "Im giving u biz not that Im jumping ship"

    They should waive the 100 dollars in the form of a voucher. It worked for me.

    You can check straight from singtel wesite but IMO, you need to complete 12 months which is on Feb 21 at least to recontract.

    I just did it last month.

    Btw, purchase thru Singtel Online Store is cheaper than going down to shop itself. Skip the long queue and get the phone deliver to your doorsteps. Trade-in & COD is available.

    They still add the $100 penalty in + the phone cost. Minus the $100 voucher, isn't it paying the original phone price? No?

    There seems to be problems with one of the bigger ISPs in your region (singnet and mio). You can read about problems other users are having here: http://twitter.com/search?q=singnet. To bypass this problem on OM, you can try using our temporary test page located here: http://wwwtest.onemanga.com (non Singapore readers can also try using this to fix their problem). You may also have better luck web browsing in general by using the proxy proxy.singnet.com.sg with port 8080. How do you setup a proxy? Check the instructions here: http://bit.ly/4y9miP.

    Hopefully this helps and all you Singapore manga fans can enjoy OM again. Happy reading!
    yep. got big problem

    They cannot give u wavier off the penalty so they give u a voucher instead. The voucher is used to waived the penalty.
