RynQassim, you are right, the cards are not expired.

Tourist SIMs are a different breed from prepaid SIMs. Prepaid SIMs have less data and talktime but longer expiry dates. Please get your facts right before dispensing advice.

Was just looking at the Singtel tourist sim package, and it says no international SMS (text message). Is that the case for the other carriers in Singapore also?

There is no free international SMS with any carrier. Unless you and your contact don't have a smart phone, I suggest you install an app for messaging eg watsapp. Pls note Singapore telcom networks no longer support 2G phones.

Otherwise, look at the non-Tourist prepaid card options like https:/…prepaid-mobile-cards where the cost of international SMS is deducted from your credit on a per msg basis.

Go for M1.For SGD15 you get 500 local mins,20mins ISD,100 local sms and 100GB of local data.It is a steal with 5 days' validity.But available at the city and not changi airport in my own experience.
