1. Customer lost phone, they give bad service.

I bought an iPhone with 2 years contract from Sept08. Last week, I lost it and called them, the customer service for iPhone was put me on hold for 10 min when I asked for IMEI number, and they asked again and again do I have my phone with me. They are not paying attention to the customer and giving bad service by asking same questions again and didn't even know how to find IMEI number in their database.

2. Extremely high price for replacement of lost phone.

I called again and ask, if I want to buy iPhone to replace my lost iPhone, how much does it cost for 3G iPhone 8GB? They said it cost S$1200.
The iPhone pricing from Singtel are EXTREMELY HIGH, compare to other normal shops that selling S$880. They never give any discount or voucher for lost of a phone. Whereas, other provider will give some voucher to buy new phone.

Singtel has the WORSE service ever and suck up as much money as they can take from the customer. SINGTEL has NO CUSTOMER CARE AND BAD SERVICE, and the service you pay them is very expensive compare to others.

For the last month, Singtel wifi has been very slow and unreliable and these past few days its been getting worse and yesterday the wifi didnt even work at all. It showed that it was connected but when i tried to do anything online it showed me that there was no wifi? If this problem persists I am going to change to a different company wifi

Dear customer care, I recently got a Wi-Fi modem installed at my apartment. The person you sent for the work really made me feel uncomfortable and was pestering me with personal questions. I would appreciate if you would look into the matter and take the necessary actions. Thank you

The issue with Singtel network has been a problem everyday after upgrading to your latest broadband. Having to pay the amount per month and this is what your customer is getting without a smooth connection daily. Even after continuous feedbackings and complaints, it's not resolved. Its really dissappointing to see the services provided by singtel!

Subscribe for 2gb..but end up you getting a slow internet..can't imagine for those ppl who subscribed for 1gb.

Your staff (Tampines branch) Louis was rude and impatient, his facial and body language shown that he's not interested in answering my question regarding recontracting of mobile plan .He shouldn't be in the frontline serving customer!

This is ridiculous. Local data cannot be used for 3 full days. Today is the 4th day and still get the same old answer "Case reported". Paid for the service and yet cannot use it. My son needs it urgently for his work / course.
Singtel, can you expedite and get it done by this morning!

The repeat quality of the live games are shocking, enough to give one an headache. Just watch the quality when the ball is kicked, the picture jerks and is out of focus . I pay a lot to watch MIO TV and in return I expect the quality of the repeat games to be the same as the live coverage.

Please stop Joanna Dong from singing the happy birthday song out of tune and making it seems right and cute. She is not young and please don't act cute. It is very irritating and I have to switch channels Everytime she is on!

Poor service for Wi-Fi. Even after changing a modem but still no Wi-Fi service and after calling over for a technician, they only ask to wait for the next appointment for another technician to solve the problem again. And it has been a week with no Wi-Fi when we students need to use it asap please solve this issue quickly

Yes, Singtel is sleeping. My complaint on 16 Oct 2017 is still not addressed. Don't think anyone is tending to this complaint forum. No point putting our complaints here. Maybe lodge a CASE report?

Sep 05, 2018 11:19 am EDT

Hi. I have been trying to call singtel 1688 about my home wifi issue for 4 days now. I had already paid the bills but home wifi is not working at all. I've been trying to call singtel to reconnect the wifi. Plus my house phone line with singtel is not working also. This is really bothering me much. Please reply asap. Thank you.

Poor initiative to resolve problem. Waited for 3 hours for queue number, as informed eatimated time within 2 hours but more than that. Approach to staff but kot helpful. Please inprove your service in jurong point

Sep 02, 2018 6:26 am EDT

I am writing this as a complaint of the Waiting time at singtel store. Why do you have walk in service when clearly there's online appointment booking. We are not aware of it and thus have to wait for more than 6 hours for walk-in apppointment. Shouldnt it be the other way around? Please do something about your queueing services at Singtel store.

I had recharged my Prepaid mobile no.: +65 [protected] with SGD 10 on 21/12/2017. Now Singtel offers free incoming calls for some days and 500 MB of mobile data in 'Special Accounts'. I do not have information on how deducted from my all Data balance...

I couldn't disable Singtel auto-top up service as it seems that there is no provision for such service in the Singtel website.
Tried to call 1688 and the line is always busy and like it expects Singtel customers to wait. Perhaps too many complaints for its service.

Aug 20, 2018 6:43 pm EDT

I have moved form singtel ASDL to Broadband service and my connection should be up from last one week, but nobody following up and still it is not up.

Best part I am calling and following up and calling singtel guys to check and these guys do not have a shame.

Worst service available.

Aug 20, 2018 7:11 pm EDT


I've encountered a lot of "No Service" when I'm at home sometimes. When I've a really important calls to make, I'm not able to make a call. Could you please advice why do I encounter this often? Looking forward to a reply and explanation. Thank you.

Thanks & Regards,

3 months ago I signed a 24months contract up for the Mezzo Channel. Now Singtel ended this channel . No alternatives provided, no refund provided, and I cannot cancel the rest of my contract.

This an unfair contract.
