I prefer to deal with the actual telco shop at the shopping centres. Same as in SG, I tend to avoid authorised dealers whenever possible.

At the actual telco shop, I know the price will be the same as what I see online and there's no 'Singaporean premium surcharge'. I also don't feel comfortable giving my passport to register the prepaid card at these Ah Beng shops, even in SG.

Everyone has their own theories and preferences.
Yes, if there's a choice, I'd head for the likes of Maxis Center, Celcom Center, Digi Store as well. But I've also taken chances by buying from dealers like those in the Yong Peng R&R, and most recently, a dealer in Paradigm. *fingers crossed* so far so good, though I do make it a point to go online to check that my accounts are "clean".

For OneXOX, there are only dealers everywhere, as I think there's only their office somewhere in KL. Got mine a few years back, from a dealer here in SG and so far no problem as well. Even contacted him recently to check on something, and he's still helpful as ever.
