From the first page of prepaid cards, RM5 min for Hotlink, Celcom, Digi, U Mobile, Merchantrade, Tune Talk, and XOX. Only Tron is RM10 min.

Need some guidance from the gurus here. I'm planning to get a hotlink FAST in KL next weekend and just use the free data.

The next time i'll need to use the sim will probably be in Feb next year. My questions are:

1. Will the sim card would have become inactive by then?
2. Can I do a top up before my trip next year to make the sim active again?
3. If so, is it recommended that I buy a top-up card in advance when I get the starter pack next week? Or should I just do an online top-up (epay?)?

TIA

"Yes" for all your questions.

Basically Hotlink FAST Plan gives you a 5-day active period upon activation with an additional 50-day credit grace period, a top up is needed to make the SIM active again.

For for details, you can refer to their FAQs at the bottom of the provided link.

Valid for 5 days. next 50day will be inactive. can receive sms, cannot make calls or sms. 51th day card will deactivate and cannot be salvaged.

2. Can I do a top up before my trip next year to make the sim active again?
topup on the 49thday. 5/10rm will suffice.

I just topped mine up this morning[my 49th inactive period] with 5rm. so my card is now valid till 3oct. 4th oct is day one of inactive period. so 22nov is my 49th day of inactive period which i need to top up again.

3. If so, is it recommended that I buy a top-up card in advance when I get the starter pack next week? Or should I just do an online top-up (epay?)?
buy topup card in advance. or can go 7-11/guardian and ask them to print out a 5rm topup receipt. remember to snap a photo of the receipt, in case the ink fades....

online topup works too. but i think got surcharge.

TIA

It depends on what you're more comfortable with.

For me, I'd buy the top-up card since I'm already at the shop buying the SIM pack, then just use it when I need to, instead of having to go online with my credit card later.

OneXOX RM10 Reload 28-Month Validity Promo

Today is supposedly the last day of the promo, but I read somewhere that it's been extended to December.

Anyone interested and needing confirmation can contact the OneXOX dealer who can be found in the Travel Bazaar.

Just to share, i subscribed Singtel 1GB monthly $10 for Malaysia data usage. The speed is not bad. Connect to digi or maxis. Good for day or short trip to Malaysia.

found out on my recent trip that kk 24-hour marts now carry digi prepaid cards. sold at official retail price. the best version should cost rm8.00.

also, digi is giving 1gb free data when you install and use their app for the first time. a copycat of hotlink.
