50-day Hotlink is the grace period within which you've to top up before the card "dies" altogether. Also known as inactive or passive stage, when you can only receive calls and text, nothing else.

Grace period for Celcom is also 50 days, DiGi Best 75 days, and DiGi Live 90 days.

For long validity without having to do constant reload, can consider ONEXOX.

Not necessary to do that. The MY SIM only provides the data connection, won't affect your Whatsapp account.

Hi guys,

At KL Sentral, which shop should I visit to purchase a prepaid sim card? Will only be staying for a few days. What type of prepaid sim should I buy?

Also, just curious, does the prepaid sim card allow me to use data in all parts of Malaysia (outside KL)?

Head for Maxis Center, get their Hotlink Fast SIM pack.
Address: Unit 11, tingkat 1, Maxis Centre KL Sentral, Jalan Stesen Sentral 5, Kuala Lumpur Sentral, 50470 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Hours: Open today · 9AM–9PM

Yes, it can be used in other parts of Malaysia.

P.S. Saw from your other post that you're still not there. If your coach stops at Yong Peng Happy Garden rest stop, can consider getting the Digi Prepaid BEST from there. You may have to pay a little more than the RRP of RM8, but not as much as what some dealers charge if you can't find a Digi Center in/around KL Sentral.

Thanks for the info, will look out for a Digi centre as well

Incidentally, which Maxis Hotlink Fast prepaid plan do you recommend? The daily one? or weekly one?

for digi, you can also get it from convenience store like kk mart and mynews

is weekly cheaper and better? are you staying for 2-3 days or a week? is the free data that comes with every new sim insufficient for your use?
