Those over RM30 normally come with a monthly data package, something that most of us don't need for a couple of days' stay.

Note: If there's a monthly plan already included, chances are it'll auto-renew the following month so you'll have to cancel the subscription before that.
Done so via app?

Malaysia SIM allows tethering?

If so, I don't need to take out the SIM on my phone

I saw Digi Prepaid Best looks reasonable in terms of price.
Add on for "Internet Plan" looks good as well

What about the validity?

Can we get it in Johor Bahru?

Thank you

So there must be a top up within every 105 (30 + 75) days to retain the number?

What's the minimum amount for every top up?

Where's the RM10 and RM20 place?
Somewhere near the Starbucks, Roti Boy area?

Thank you
usually top up RM30 per month to keep the number

No need RM30.

You can top up RM5 for every 80 day (5+75days) OR top up RM10 for every 85 days (10+75days) to keep the line; please note that the 75 days is the grace period which means the line is under passive mode, the line will active once you do a top up.

it seems that you paid rm10 for the new sim card, which normally retails for rm8 and comes with rm5 credit. you spent another rm20 to reload the card and purchased the weekly 500mb plan that costed rm9.

the rm9 weekly plan is recurring so after 4 days another rm9 will be deducted from your balance.

http://new.digi.com.my/prepaid-addons#Internet-Plans

the reload might be done in 2 steps, i.e. rm5 + rm15, because now digi has a promotion that give 2gb free weekend data for rm15 reload and you has it

if i were you i would spend rm1 to get the 300mb pokemon daily plan and then redeem 200mb free data for every rm1 use. in other words, 500mb for every rm1. cheap?

AFAIK, you can retain the Digi prepaid number for a long time at a low cost.

In theory... just spending RM5 is sufficient to retain the Digi Prepaid SIM for MORE THAN 1 year.

Let's start by assuming that currently:

- You have a Digi prepaid SIM card which is ALREADY in grace/passive period AND currently the Digi prepaid SIM card balance is RM0.

To retain the Digi prepaid number for a LONG TIME at minimum cost -- we start by topping up RM5 to the Digi prepaid SIM card:

05 days (Top up RM5 will get 5 days active period; Balance: RM0 + RM5 = RM5)
75 days (Balance: RM5; 75days grace/passive period after active period ends)

01 days (Pay RM1 to get 1day active period via USSD *128# Balance: RM5 - RM1 = RM4)
75 days (Balance: RM4; 75days grace/passive period after active period ends)

01 days (Pay RM1 to get 1day active period via USSD *128# Balance: RM4 - RM1 = RM3)
75 days (Balance: RM3; 75days grace/passive period after active period ends)

01 days (Pay RM1 to get 1day active period via USSD *128# Balance: RM3 - RM1 = RM2)
75 days (Balance: RM2; 75days grace/passive period after active period ends)

01 days (Pay RM1 to get 1day active period via USSD *128# Balance: RM2 - RM1 = RM1)
75 days (Balance: RM1; 75days grace/passive period after active period ends)

01 days (Pay RM1 to get 1day active period via USSD *128# Balance: RM1 - RM1 = RM0)
75 days (Balance: RM0; 75days grace/passive period after active period ends)

===============
460days in TOTAL !!

By doing the above, I've shown that by spending JUST RM5...

You can retain/keep your Digi prepaid SIM number for 460days (MORE THAN 15 months !!) -- WITHOUT the need to do any top up during this 460days.

Above is assuming that:

- You always remember to pay RM1 to buy 1day active period via USSD *128# just before the end of each 75days grace/passive period.
- No outgoing calls & no outgoing SMS are sent during any active periods.

If in Malaysia, you can even use mobile data on the Digi Prepaid SIM card during any active period WITHOUT money deducted from the Digi prepaid balance -- BECAUSE current version of Digi Best/Live prepaid SIM cards come with FREE (64kbps) basic Internet !!

You can of course REPEAT the above cycle EVERY 460days.

If you understand the above info -- GOOD for you.
If you don't understand the above info, just ignore this post.

Hope the above helps.
