    Judging from all the posts above, it seems that M1 will only offer phone rebate vouchers to high end customers? I requested for it, and the operator said that there is no such rebate, and she can only offer me a caller id rebate for 6 months. My monthly bill is less than $40 per month. I think I am going to switch operator. No point staying loyal to them when there is no privilege?
    Hi blueberry, I would suggest that you wait a while more if you value your number though. If I'm not wrong, the true number portability is coming Jan / Dec 2008. And when that happens, your number truly belongs to you as opposed to the Telco.

    Right now when you change Telco, you retain your old number but when you call people, people see your new number. All sorts of inconveniences...

    hmmm.. Let me share my experience....

    In the Telco Industry, they classify their customers according to the customer average monthly spending over a spread of 3 - 12 months. I'm not too sure about SingTel or M1, but for StarHub, as long as your average monthly bill is around $150 / above, you are certainly one of their Top-End customers.

    For their top-end customers, its pretty normal that they will send you Vouchers every 2 years when your contract expire. I've always recieved vouchers of $200 to buy a new mobile phone every 2 years...

    However, when it comes to StarHub, the situation is much easier. All you need to do, is perhaps call StarHub once you're over the 1 year period, and tell them that you would want to buy a new phone BUT you don't want to pay for the $100 additional surcharge, and you hope the Customer Relations department can get back to you.

    They usually won't fail you, even if your monthly bill is low. My wife's bill is only $40+ and she not only got the $100 surcharge waived, but she also a $50 Voucher. As for myself, I got a $200 Voucher on top of the surcharge waiver.

    End up, I made money from changing my phone after trading in my 7610.

    PS: It worked for SingTel too. I did it for my dad and they gave him a $150 Voucher. His monthly average bill is around $70. The key is don't be shy to ask and demand. Come 2008, when there is true number portability (no more forwarding, new & old number and all), just move your if you get nothing.

    Once your contract ends at the 24th month, dont go to any of the m1 shops to sign up to get a new phone. wait for 2mths later. they will defintely send u a $100 cash voucher. wait for abt 3 mths, they will send a $150 cash voucher.

    I was abroad all the while when i realised it.
    I called M1 to ask whether I will be getting any vouchers and they said no promotions at this time. Very lousy, my other friends who are on Starhub and Singtel all got phone rebate vouchers when their contract ended.

    whitequeenie, i dont think M1 has such a thing. I was on 1+1 for a very long time, contract free for at least 2years, yet i didnt receive any vouchers what-so-ever.

    amies, the issue has not been fixed. i can call my sister's old number but whenever she calls or sms-es me, i see her new number. that's why i'm reluctant to change numbers...

    whitequeenie, i think i will call them up to check once i'm thinking of getting a new phone. i'm on the student plan too, so no reason for me not to get the voucher!

    What happens if I want to retain my no. and change service provider? I think there's a telephone portability? However, the last time I heard of it was where its not '100%' done. ie, if I am with Co A with my no. and changed to Co B. Co B will provide a new hp no. to somehow connect with my current no. So if I called others, they will see Co B's hp no and not my original no. Has this issue been fixed? Thanks!
