No, RM5 is not enough to keep a Hotlink card for a whole year. Hotlink doesn't have the RM1 option.

I was talking about using the old/common RM5 reload method.
does buying a hot deals package at rm1 free YouTube data helps to extend the validity?

usage doesnt extend the validity. only reload does, similar to prepaids in singapore.

Celcom Xpax has similar function like Digi.

Type "1day" and send to "28882"

Celcom will send a message "U have requested to purchase 1day validity @RM1. To proceed, send YES 1DAY to 28882"

Therefore, the line will have 1 day validity and 40 days of grace period.

Validity can be extended either by reload if account has no credit or use existing credit to buy validity which is at RM1 per day.

As for internet, Celcom charged RM3 for 1GB if you are staying in Malaysia for 1 day. For 1day plan, Celcom won't auto renew. Only weekly or monthly internet plan will auto renew.

So total is RM4 for 1 day trip in Malaysia. The 1day internet plan can be purchased on Xpax app.

As above is my own personal experience. More info on their website.

Oddly.... after doing the *100#, i pressed 6 for my account, 1 for language menu and 2 for English.[all these were in malay]


previously it was 6,1,3 when my 2 friends go theirs in oct 2016...


when you use your hotlink outside malaysia, the telco is so intelligent that it will present you with a roaming menu instead the regular *100# menu.

you need to go to the end of the list and select 9 or 8 when in singapore, before you can get to the actual menu.

after that, it's 6, 1, 3 if i remember correctly.

a better way is to tweet customer service and ask them to change for you. you also need them to disable voicemail and caller ringtone or your credits will start disappearing.

Your Service(s) Lifecycle

Your top-up amount will determine the number of active-days to make calls, SMS, and access to the internet.
After the Active Period ends, you can only receive incoming calls and SMS'. During the Credit Grace Period, all balance from credit & Mobile Internet passes will be suspended from usage.
You must top-up to resume full Service(s). Failure to top-up before the end of the Credit Grace Period will result in line termination.
FAST Hotlink Plan gives you 50 days of Credit Grace Period.

min top rm5 ????

topup rm5 get 5 active day
50 days grace period
topup rm5 get 5 active day
50 days grace period
topup rm5 get 5 active day
50 days grace period
topup rm5 get 5 active day
50 days grace period
topup rm5 get 5 active day
50 days grace period
topup rm5 get 5 active day
50 days grace period
topup rm5 get 5 active day
50 days grace period

total days = 385 days
Total topiup rm 5 x 7 times = rm35

For those users doing 1-day activation solely for the purpose of "refreshing" the grace period, you can also look at the option of credit sharing.

Hotlink's Share-A-Top-Up

As usual, don't forget to read the FAQ as well.
