StarHub is a Singaporean telecommunications company that offers HomeConnect prepaid international calling cards. Users of the prepaid cards can use the card from either Singapore or other countries throughout the world. The procedure for initiating a StarHub conference call depends upon the location of the card user. Calls made from Singapore use a different dialing method than calls originating in other countries. A user can make a StarHub prepaid call by learning the specific IDD (international direct dialing) procedures that apply to his situation.
Calling From Singapore
Dial “1884” or “68201884.” You then must dial the card number of the StarHub prepaid card. Press “1,” or “2,” or “3” after entering the prepaid card number. The number you press depends on what service you choose to use. The number “1” is for StarHub IDD (International Direct Dialing) 008, the premium service offered by StarHub. The number “2” is for cheaper rates that may or may not have the same call quality. This is the IDD 108 service. If you are aware of special promotions, such as a special rate when using a prepaid card to call a specific country, then you can press “3” to get the special rate. Use the StarHub HomeConnect promotions update web page to track special StarHub promotions (see Sources).
Enter the country code, the area code and the telephone number that you are calling, followed by the “#” sign. If you do not know the country code for the country you are calling, use the HowToCallAbroad online list of country codes (see Sources).
Calling From Outside Singapore
Note that the system automatically selects the 008 premium service for you when calling from overseas. Enter the country access code. Do not confuse this with a normal country code for international dialing. This is the access code used by StarHub to connect to the local phone system. Use the StarHub website page for access codes to look up your code (see Sources).
Enter the prepaid card number and the “#” sign. Dial “1” to call Singapore. You may only call back to Singapore with the HomeConnect card when calling from a different country. Enter the Singapore telephone number you are calling and the “#” sign. You will then be connected to the Singapore phone number.
Refer to the HomeConnect User Guide for additional information about how to use your StarHub prepaid calling card (see Sources).
Warning: Note the expiration date on the HomeConnect prepaid card. You may not use any time remaining on the card after the expiration date.
