Before you decide to purchase anything, Circles.life gives you the freedom to tweak its $28/month mobile plan by increasing the amount of data/talk time/SMS offered in the plan. This allows you to tailor the plan to your mobile habits, and only pay for what you want.
Rates: $6/GB data, $4/100 min talktime, $4/100 local SMS
There’s an upfront one-time registration fee ($4 after using promo code CIRCLESXEBUDDY), but you get to choose a free mobile number and get the SIM card delivered to your accommodation in Singapore at no cost.
Circles.Life supports credit/debit cards only. They will automatically deduct payment from the card that was used when you initially signed up. Your monthly bill will be sent to your registered email address, and you will be charged within the first 10 working days of each month. The first bill will consist of a pro-rated cost of your 1st month’s plan usage (pro-rated to the date of SIM card delivery), and also the prepayment of the plan for the 2nd month.
SIM Card delivered on 8th April 2018, first bill received on 1st May 2018
Pay-As-You-Go charges will be reflected in your following month’s bill if you exceed your plan’s data/talk time, or send SMSes.
Rates: 8¢/min talk time, 5¢/local SMS.
Top ups (called Plus options) are available for local data, and outgoing/incoming calls. Upon activation, the amount will be instantly charged to your credit/debit card, and it will be reflected in the following month’s bill. If you do not deactivate your Plus option for the following months, the charge will become a monthly prepayment.
You can also easily top up data any time using the Boost option on the CirclesCare app – 500 MB (S$3.50), 1 GB ($6.00) or 2 GB ($10.00). All Boost top ups expire at the end of the monthly Billing Cycle. You will be instantly charged for purchasing a Boost, and it will be reflected in the next month’s bill.
The app provides customers with a clean interface to customize their mobile plans easily. You can also track data usage and payments via the app, or quickly receive customer service through the care section.
The app also allows you to set data roaming alerts and caps, purchase Boosts, and update personal/payment details.
