think u just buy the prepaid card. it has a fixed stored amount of value in the card, for e.g. 20 bucks. and as u use the card, the value will deduct till card finish loh

Is it to make overseas calls from Singapore or a mobile phone prepaid card ?
If its the former, you can buy a SingTel calling card from any DBS bank ATM. You will get a printed receipt, with a 12 digit pin. You just dial a toll free number 1800 5333333 and then follow further instructions.

Dunno about a prepaid card for a mobile phone.

okie... if u want those cards that are already registered, then you should try those small stores like those mama stores and so on. If not you can just walk into any 7 -11 to get it.

Most of the telcos are offering the same deals, except Singtel who gives free incoming all day on sunday. But otherwise, i think they should be the same. Personally i am using M1 prepaid for work. All of them have free incoming all day for about .60 SGD a day, you can either activiate it or not. If u do get M1, remember to get the super value card, which is 30 dollars for 100 dollars worth of talk time :)

IIRC, all pre-paid card need to be top-up at least once every 6 months else it will expire.
