Looks like XPAX Turbo is Celcom's latest prepaid plan, comes with free 10GB Internet Burung Hantu and 500MB Social Chat monthly.

Click on the FAQ to see its call and SMS rates, and also Internet plans.

Can't recall where I've clicked, but it seems to also have 1-day, 1-week, and 1-month reactivation options.

If you're looking for a use-and-throw prepaid SIM, Hotlink Fast is presently the popular choice.
just wonder is there any prepaid data sim for unlimited data daily for few days for replacement for apartment stay without internet to use it as youtube video streaming etc ?

digi live. a new card costs a mere rm12. data is currently 300mb per rm1. 90 days grace period.

if you are away from malaysia for more than that, you can reactivate your number before 90 days are up by paying rm1 from your credit balance. your number will then be active for 1 day followed by another 90 days of grace.

why go for mnvo when you can get mno for less?
if currently in grace period, how to pay rm1 to keep the line active?

Oh, so DiGi Prepaid Live also has the Super Long Life (SLL) option! Look under Talktime Services under the FAQ.

There should be a certain USSD code to key in for the activation...

I'm still a bit wary of letting the number expire (I got a very good to-keep number).

So if I got the card with 5 days validity, and I top up minimum (say RM5) every 52 days with 3 days to spare, that should do it? Anyway I just found out that the Hotlink app actually shows "Termination Date" on it once it goes into deactive status (mine is 8 Nov 2016) so I assume as long as I top up before that, I would be fine. After that, I should have +50 days (around 28 Dec) before needing to top up RM5 again, correct? Then +50 days again (16 Feb '17) before another RM5 topup.

Just wanted to confirm this.

Of course, that is ideal situation. If I do the top up too early, then I lose my deactive days and will need an earlier date for subsequent top up.
to avoid accumulating too much credit, you could alternate the voucher topup with sos topup. the cost is only 50sen.

but remember that hotlinks reactivated this way will not have any data access be it free or paid. sos topup is good when you need to keep it alive while out of malaysia.

Yours should be Hotlink Tablet Plan..

Get OneXOX SIM which immediate RM10 top up after card activation will give you 28 months validity.

This RM10 reload promo is going to end this month (just about 7 days left), unless they extended it again. Luckily we've a registered dealer within easy reach here.

Otherwise it's going to be the RM50 reload within 30 days after activation, which is negligible though, if one plans to subscribe to Season Pass.

For better deal, can consider to top up RM100 st8 and get 8GB season pass..

With the capability of being able to share out my Season Pass, that may well be a reality once my friend gets his OneXOX card and I'm more or less done with my housekeeping. Still quite a bit left from my Happy Hours so far.

Got to try out the Tron app at last!

For a foreign prepaid SIM that doesn't provide auto roaming, the app really comes in useful for quick management from our mobile devices.

Thumbs up Tron update on 365 DAYS VALIDITY - BEST

> minimum reload of RM10 is before GST or after GST?
> If i purchase RM10 reload voucher, will i get extend 365 days?

Pertaining to your query, you may reload any amount to get 365 days validity.

> What do you mean by any amount? even rm5 ?
> it is not stated on the website.

Yes, even RM5 you will get validity 365 days. But, normally 7-11 or petrol station will sell RM10 minimum of reload.

If you have any further enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact Tron Helpline at 011 2012 0180/ 0181/ 0182/ 0183 (9.00am to 6.00pm, Monday to Sunday), email to cs@tron.com.my or log on to our website http://www.tron.com.my for more information. We are glad to assist you.
