I experienced the same problem in ALL countries other than Singapore e.g whenever the SIM is roaming. I tried everything including all of the StarHub suggestions for passwords to deactivate call barring and sending USSD codes etc. to no avail. I also had the SIM replaced and tried it in multiple handsets again to no avail.  On all occasions, I had only purchased a WOW Data Plan with no call bundles.  It turns out that I was still able to make outgoing calls by entering the prefix *116* number, followed by #, even with call barring active.  I don't know if call barring is deactivated if a call bundle is purchased but outgoing calls do appear to work using the *116* number #  method.  It is not clear from the StarHub website that this prefix is mandatory for making outgoing calls from prepaid SIMs when roaming.  The # following the number to be dialed is also essential.  Hope this helps?
