Based on my knowledge:

1) Put SIM in and use straight

2) The SP data validity will follow your SIM validity which can be more than 28 months, and the SP data act as your DATA bank, withdraw from it when needed and minimum data will be 500MB.

Please note that each monthly data plan is automatic renew for the next month, so you will need to send DATA AR OFF to 23388 OR via mobile APP to request stop data plan renewal for each data plan you had subscribed.
thanks for your answers.

The part that I don't understand is that I paid MYR 100 for the 20GB of data - so where does the monthly data plan come in? Isn't XOX a prepaid system?

Both are said to be more costly, at least in a long run.

Maxis is known to have very good connection, but not cheap. Celcom is not cheap either, and connection can do if it's there.

thanks for your answers.

To be exact, it's known as OneXOX and yes, it's a prepaid card.

Season Pass is like a wallet where the data you bought is kept. AFAIK, it's no pay-as-you-use (PAYU) data so you'll have to subscribe to one of the data packages (see list I've shared in previous page or so).

Other than the daily one, the amount of weekly/monthly data you choose to subscribe to, will be withdrawn from your Season Pass wallet if there's enough, otherwise they'll deduct from your credit balance (amount indicated against each package in the list).

Frequent travellers may keep the same number for long run...

BATA only good for those short trip and less frequent visitors, don't forget you will need to do the registration for every new SIM.

Enjoy your trip.

Remember to stop the auto-renewal after your trip.

I got myself a hotlink sim, was juz walking and seeing the numbers, my gf found one she liked so we got it.

Not bad lah, since we were in Malaysia for 3 days, the data really helped. RM15 means only like $3 for 3 days of Internet.

After that I also when Malaysia for one night, when I reach I downloaded the hotlink app... And registered, and they give me free 1gb for 48hours. Shoik sia!

As for topup.... I so far have gotten one rm5 top up code, just buy from anywhere. 7-11, pharmacies, news vendors. U can keep it for use when u need to.

So even when my card expire.... As long as I am within the grace period. I can just throw the value in and use the card. Even if I forget and the card expires.... I only spent like $5 and have already used data there for 5 days. So really money well spent... Only regret that with data... GF will spend time on what's app. Lol

Surfing on NSHW with ONEXOX, connection has been good right from CIQ.

From experience though, "class" of phone does make some difference in connectivity, thus I'm using my Galaxy A9 Pro instead of the Galaxy A7 2017 now.

Any recommendation for infrequent travellers (e.g. less than 10 times per year) to Malaysia/JB only?
Mainly need Data + some incoming and outgoing credits.

Looking for 2 types.

1 Day prepaid?
- Any recommendation and where to buy it easily and cheaper?

Prepaid card with longest validity
- Any recommendation and does it allow to top up easily via online/Singapore?

Thank you.
Also want to know this.
Infrequent traveller, maybe once every 2 to 3 months.
Lazy to queue and register and set up each time go in.
Use mostly data for uber, whatapps and peace of mind only.

Have been reading up about the onexox, still kinda confused.
What is easiest way to buy onexox online without having to travel to town to meetup etc?

Many thanks.

you might as well roam on singapore prepaids unless you need a permanent malaysian number to receive calls. 180 days validity.

onexox usually goes with season pass, and to get good value, you need to purchase your data need for 20-28 months upfront.

offer to pay more? $$$$ rocks!

I am user of XOX. Just want to answer/highlight some of things.

XOX is good for long term usage as the credit/Season pass last for 28 mths. Of coz you have to withdraw to ensure that you have valid data before use. Good for those who entering Msia every week, mth or even shorter frequency. It's a hassle to drop by mobile shop just to get a prepaid card every time go M'sia, isn't it?

Minimum withdraw is 500mb/month. You can do it in Singapore, by login to M1 network. *150*2# for the menu or apply it on the website. Note: You have to discontinue the recurring; otherwise every mth will deduct the 500MB.

Last time, used to be minimum withdrawal of 150MB per day or week. (I forgot already).

If you only entering JB for a day trip, SP withdrawal of 500MB is too much, use credit also can. RM3/day for 1GB. Refer to the menu *150*2#
Sorry noob here, if not M1 user can press the *150*2# code in Singapore?
And also all those SMS codes, must use in Malaysia or can setup first in Singapore.
Lastly, isn't it better to use App to setup since can avoid all the confusing SMS codes?
Thanks.
