Singtel YAY! Monthly plan review – the cheapest, most affordable and probably the best prepaid plan you can get | Singapore
Prepaid that feels like postpaid plan.
Wanted to try postpaid but doesn’t want the commitment? Here’s the plan for you.
First of all, I am not a Singtel employee nor I will get anything from Singtel if in the end you decide to subscribe to the plan. I’m writing this to share with you my own experiences on using the Singtel YAY! Monthly Plan.
Singtel prepaid cheapest plan used to be this one here, where $11/month you get 1 GB data. That’s when text, small pictures and low quality video were booming and part of our daily lives.
However with everything now moving to cloud, videos and pictures have better qualities and bigger sizes, 1GB data plan a month is no longer sufficient for most people, plus the fact that recently Singtel increase the price for its value plan. Now you can’t really get $11 for a month for 1 GB.
Lucky for us, these days customers are the winners.
Prepaid plan users (not only Singtel) used to be the step children when it comes to perks and promotions, while the other siblings got all the goodness, that’s not the case for Prepaid users. One case was, last time there’s no option for Prepaid users to switch from 2G to 3G SIM Card. Even today, though prepaid plan is still considered as step children but things are getting better.
With introduction of many new Telco companies here in Singapore, even Singtel – which has the biggest and widest in coverage – has no choice but to give us more and better plans.
Meet Singtel YAY! Monthly Plan – The Postpaid plan for Prepaid users
It costs $19.90/month. And these what you get:
- 10GB local data (5GB anytime, 5GB between 12am-8am)
- Unlimited data for WhatsApp, WeChat and LINE
- 200 local call minutes
- 200 local SMS
- Free incoming calls
- 30 days validity
Not bad, right?
Depends on your mobile data usage, but for me 5GB a month is more than enough. I rarely check Instagram and social media, but I heavily use messengers (WhatsApp, LINE) to communicate with families, friends and colleagues, heavily use FlipBoard to get the latest news around the world and do browsing for things I’m curious about and only occasionally I watch YouTube. I have WiFi at home and normally I don’t browse during office hours.
Why Singtel YAY! Monthly Plan is just like a postpaid plan?
That’s because you need to subscribe to it. And as long as you don’t cancel the subscription, it will continue the subscription – just like what normally happen on a postpaid plan.
If you are thinking to convert into postpaid plan but somehow you are not that comfortable yet to do so, this is the plan for you.
