Level 3 JB City Sq Mall has Maxis, U mobile & Digi. Do any of these shop sell prepaid Sim card (sin only w/o the 1st top up)?

Only Maxis. But their registration system is down for the longest time.

U Mobile and Digi sells with mandatory Topup + Data Plan.

Try dial +60378.

But wondering why you use Malaysia line in Singapore to make oversea call, try to get a local prepaid will be much cheaper.

I have u mobile cardand i want to use it in singapore to call malaysia phone number. Anyone know to call out? What code should i call?
+
60 is Malaysia's international access code
Mobile phone numbers have codes like 010 011 012 013 014 015 016 017 018 019
+6010xxxxxxxx etc
Land lines have codes like 3 for KL,7 for Johor, etc
+603xxxxxxx etc
Rest of the numbers are either 7 or 8 digits

Your 5 digit number looks like a party that's sent you a message? I may be wrong, but I don't think you can call a 5 digit number...?

If that is the case, please make sure your network changed to local STARHUB before make any any oversea call.

Finally used my Tune Talk SIM card once again, after taking advantage of their promo RM10 1-year validity extension and RM1 for 300MB data plan. (Disabling of data pack auto-renewal was easily done with the app.)

Connection was good on the whole.

anyone done a comparison between using a malaysia prepaid vs an m1 prepaid?

since m1 prepaid data includes free autoroam data for malaysia (and 4 other countries) it seems to be a better choice?

I've both, and it depends on your usage pattern.

If you're already using the MCard on home ground, then it makes sense to just bring it over to surf in Malaysia.

Which one has the longest expiry date? Maxis vs U vs Digi?

i used to have a malaysia prepaid number, but found it too much of a hassle to keep it active, tried both Digi and Hotlink. it seems that no matter now u slice it, it's RM1 a day to keep it active and ended up topping up just to keep it alive and end up with almost RM100 in the account

this time round, trying out with an astronaut m1 prepaid line aka "tai4 kong1 xian4"

I've both, and it depends on your usage pattern.
