Option 3: If you reside in Canada, Hong Kong, or Singapore you are now able to purchase the SIM card before you leave for your trip! How cool is that?! Needless to say option 3 has got to be my favorite option for this trip. The SIM card is available at Singapore Changi Airport Changi Recommends Counter, Terminal 2, Departure Hall, Row 10 (Tel:+65-6764-6323). It costs S$38 and has 30 minutes worth of talktime and 500mb worth of data for a normal SIM, and S$47 for a nano SIM (for iPhones).
Needless to day, I am going with option 3 this time round. Getting the EG SIM card at Changi Airport was simple and it even came with an 'empty' T-Money Pass! Apparently if no talktime is used, data is worth 1GB.
