Paid RM365 for your Hotlink Tablet SIM? Can elaborate ?


If you are not going to Malaysia sp often then I will suggest you buy either Maxis/DIGI; buy and throw away after each of your trip; each starter pack is come with some data (internet) + credit (for call).
No lah, I mean to keep the SIM active, u need to top up.
1RM = 1 day
So if I want to keep the SIM, I would have to top up RM365, then use the credit to buy data plan (Eg RM45 for 2GB, valid for 1yr)

You don't need to use rm365 to maintain 365 days. There should be an option to pay a small sum of money for 365 days expiry.

I see I see.

If you are looking for long validity then there is other cheaper option like ONeXOX.

Roughly RM60 for a new SIM (SIM + immediate top up); you will get 3GB data plus some credit balance for voice call and the validity of the card is up to 28 months.

Btw I am not related to OneXOX, google OneXOX if you need more detail.

Validity365 was there for a period but they've since removed it.

Got to do the reload method to use the RM45 2GB now.

But you're right, don't need to use RM365 unless one wants to use the data all year round.

The most abandon the card after one year and get a new one.

But there's no new Hotlink Tablet/Broadband SIM pack to buy anymore.

First they removed the 365-day line validity from the 2GB RM45 pack, and put in Validity365. Then they decided to take away Validity365 from the menu as well.

Looks to me like they're trying to force existing users to give up as well, and make this plan "forever buried and forgotten".

1GB free Saturday data (fast)

15mins/day free calls (U Mobile)
After topup RM10:
- 1GB free data (fast)

15mins/day free calls (U Mobile)

-

U Mobile (Unlimited) - RM8.50
10 days validity
10 days 200mb data (fast)
RM5 credit
15mins/day free calls (U Mobile)
1GB free data (64kbps)
After topup RM10:
- Unlimited data APP>ONZ (fast)

Digi Best (RM$8 starter pack)
RM5 credit
300MB for 7 days
30 days validity
RM3 for 1GB day pass
[Shop sales person in Bukit Indah says need to top up RM$30 upon buying, so upfront is RM$38]

I only need data, minimal call except for emergency use.
I am on Starhub Happy prepaid, where i buy e 1GB data for $5 when i go in.
Usually shared among 4 pax, 3 of them minimal whatsapp, facebook, but i play game.

I had an internet data counter app that shows how much data passes thru wifi/3G on the tethering phone. And usually when it hits 250MB on my counter, Starhub has alr said that my 1GB has been used up...WTF.

So i am thinking of getting a Malaysian prepaid card as i go in once or twice a month and may need more than 1GB of data (since 1GB is always not enough, which i dont understand). Seems like 3RM for 1GB is best deal for day pass. Is there cheaper than 3RM for 1GB within the apps coz i saw some online exclusive deals within the app on some pics shared in this thread. I am thinking of Digi, Umobile or hotlink.

A few questions:
Does the top-up 1RM in the last few days of grace/inactive period works for all the telcos prepaid? or only Digi?
What r e inactive/grace period of hotlink/Umobile? 60 days for Umobile and 50 days for hotlink.
Digi is 75 days for best, if i saw correctly on someone's post.

Which plan is your Hotlink card?

Does it happen to be in Slot 2 of a non-3GDS phone?

I've a couple of Hotlink cards here, no downtime experienced so far.

Did you try to do a manual network search.

Still got 2GB RM45 for 365 days leh.

Just checked from the Hotlink Red app and i topped up 2GB RM45 for 365 days a few days ago.
