digi best is a pretty cool deal now. for just rm1 per day, you get 2gb. just changed plan from live and it seems the free video allowance remained.

Didn't bother updating myself on the latest plans. Still using my Power u mobile bought a year ago. Just top up 5rm at 7-11 when I go in every week since it expires in 5 days. 4G reception not fantastic though..

how does this work?

I go online buy these package? But must buy their prepaid SIM card first isnt it? Assuming i bought the SIM card, put it into my phone, i buy the 17 hours expired package, i use it for either today or tomorrow. Next week if i go again to JB, i just buy again another 17 hours package online and use the same SIM card? There is no expiry of the SIM card?

this is the new digi best 2017 plan. read it up at the telco's website to understand about the product.

the free 1gb data is offered on daily basis once you spent rm1 on idd calls to the labourers's countries. 17 hours remaining because midnight was 17 hours away.

if you topup at least once a month, you don't have to worry about expiry. so it is wise to topup small amount each time, not a huge amount in one go. details on expiry is, again explained on telco's website.

Read the part on Digi Prepaid Best, the T&Cs and FAQs, and you'll understand better how to go about it.

Yes, you can use the same SIM card on your subsequent visits, grace period I believe is still 75 days for Digi Best.

If you've anymore questions after going through the notes, we can then help to answer them.

The weekly (every 7 days) FREE 2.5GB video/music allowance is a permanent feature of Digi Live prepaid SIM card.

If I understand correctly...

The weekly FREE 2.5GB video/music allowance -- was provisioned to your Digi prepaid BEFORE you converted your Digi prepaid from Digi Live prepaid to Digi prepaid Best 2017.

Now that you've converted your Digi Live prepaid to Digi prepaid Best 2017, there may be no more FREE weekly 2.5GB video/music allowance provisioned to your Digi prepaid from next week onwards.

(So keep us updated on this next week, OK? Thanks.)

The daily FREE 1GB (12am to 8am) -- for this latest version Digi prepaid Best 2017 is fairly generous -- PROVIDED you can make use of it.

For those (Singaporeans) making occasional day trips into Malaysia (i.e. go in morning, come back afternoon or at night) -- will be DIFFICULT to be able to make use of this daily FREE 1GB; because timing wise -- it's only valid between 12am to 8am !!

Of course this daily FREE 1GB (12am to 8am) will be more useful to those who spend a few days in Malaysia -- PROVIDED you don't sleep between 12am to 8am to make use of this daily FREE 1GB

IMHO, the (other) FREE 1GB Internet -- valid for rest of the day -- given upon at least RM1 spent on IDD calls, is the more useful part.

If I'm not wrong, there is also no change in the inactive/passive/grace period.

For this latest version Digi prepaid Best 2017, the inactive/passive/grace period is still 75days, which is LESS/shorter than the 90days inactive/passive/grace period for Digi Live prepaid.

To summarise, all different (new or old) versions of prepaid has pros & cons.

You have to look at all the details -- to know what works best for you.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

Digi Best plan also got another promo..

Spend 1RM and get free 200MB data (valid for 7 days - redeemable once a day). Do note that free data is not stackable.

Ya.. Have to cancel the plan else will auto renew upon top up or when there's sufficient balance.

They also made it hard for people to cancel since cancellation will deactivate the add-on immediately despite having balance.
