Small joys…

A few days ago I was told of TPG Mobile, a new telco. And guess what they were offering 12-month trial mobile lines/SIM cards…

At no charge ($0), you get a SIM card that comes with 2gb data daily, free calls to mobile lines (20 mins per month to landlines) and 20 local smses per month…

I tried to sign up immediately… But alas the day’s quota had been met and I had to try the next morning (from 9am). *folks please have a copy of your nric on stand by….

So… I managed to sign up and immediately received an sms informing me that I could collect it at their redemption centre (at Shaw Centre).

I decided to do just that the next day (today).

I was at the redemption centre at about 1pm… Not much of a wait. There had about 8 counters and all I had to do was show them my nric. I was given a SIM card and the instruction slip. I was impressed that they had senior counters where friendly service staff help install and explain how the SIM works…

I installed the card after I got home… Easy enough… Data was up and running!! Now I can Instagram without a care of using up my 1gb of data from circles.life’s $0 plan… (do you notice a trend here?!)

Since I was given a pretty nice number I wanted to change to that for my telegram account… Now this was the odd part… Telegram wasn’t able to sms the code over, nor could I call…

So now what? I tried smsing using the TPG line.. That worked.. I could even sms back to the TPG number…

I tried calling out… Nope, didn’t work… Tried calling in… Also didn’t work…

Really… What now?
