hey...

i was in jb last sunday. didnt really wanted to get a card as just going there for a 1/2 day..

but got curious at city square... and walked into a digi shop.. i asked... how much for the pre paid card.. got quoted RM39 for some 'digi live'?? that is the only thing i saw on their wall..

i walked to the other shop.. but no one seem to want to entertain me...

RM39 seems quite a bit to me... from what i see in this thread.. its maybe like RM10-15??? so how can a Singaporean buy a prepiad card for the right price? ?? hahah

maybe people will say i am cheapskate.. but the fact remain.. its suppose to be cheaper?

Normally most telco shop in malls wants to chop Sporean carrot by upselling the Sim Card with Data Plan.

Can consider buying your Sim Card in those kiosk/booths or maybe further away from CIQ where they would usually retail the Sim Card itself at RM8-10.

i actually do not mind if the card they sell has already top up some extra data. but at least i know what i can getting..

so if the 8rm sim card.. has no data at all? or just maybe 500MB? then usually rm 10 dollar get you how much data?

like i said... this thread is super long!!! haha.. cant read everything...

RM10 - get hotlink. activation 3 days fo 300mb free.
card valid for 5days. if manage to overlap into saturday and sunday,
you get to enjoy 1gb data on saturday and 1gb data on sunday.
if you extended stay in jb, sunday night download the hotlink red app.
upon activation of the app to your mobile number,
another 2-3days free data[i think 1gb?]

you need to scroll back the pages to see the details we posted....

Those people upselling the SIM Cards with Bundles are just trying to earn more commission. They usually subscribe you to those Weekly/Monthly Data bundles that you won't even need for a short trip one to two days to JB.

Usually, the RM8 starter pack should suffice since it comes preloaded with about 300MB data depending on Telco. Some telcos even offer free data (1GB from Hotlink) when you first download their App.

If you are just aiming for convenience vs cost, of course Local Prepaid might be better.

But, cost wise, definitely much worth to get a Malaysia Prepaid. Can also use to call.

This seems to be the best for the 3 - 7 days tourist. RM8 (~S$2.50) Digi Prepaid gives you RM5 talktime & 300MB internet valid for 7 days.

Just sharing! I went to city square a few times non of the shops want to entertain me for prepaid card. Always tell me system down cant register. So i went to enquire a few kiosks outside cs and all quote me rm20. I have never managed to find the rm10 cards that this forum keep mentioning. Either information is wrong or i go incorrect kisoks.

NEVER, NEVER!!! use $7 / 1GB / 7 Days.

Use $5 / 1GB / 3 Days + $1 / 10MB / 7 Days.
You get $6 / 1.01GB / 10 Days

I browsed the URL, can't see the $5 / 1GB / 3 Days plan, I only see $7 / 1GB / 7 Days.

Can you share from where you see from? thanks
