Really? Thanks for the heads up. Will look for another telco then.
if you have an address in malaysia, you can try to order online from tunetalk or even shopee.

also, do test the coverage first at the places you frequent before committing on a yearly plan like vibe 200.

you might get more answer for the coverage from below forum as mainly Malaysian users.

Maxis or Celom or their MVNO shouldn't have much problem for others better check first.

Maxis and Digi can surf net up and down the NS highway. Only at checkpoints will have low signal. I like Digi's option of PayPal top up from anywhere.

Unifi looks interesting though if speed and cheap is more critical than coverage.

... just for info to the rest, nearest shops/booths for SGeans to access MVNO SIM packs:

OneXOX at Giant Nusa Bestari Mall
Tron in Jalan Wong Ah Fook
Tune Talk in Komtar JBCC
Just realized I shared early last year that Tune Talk SIM packs were spotted at a newsstand across from the cashier counters of Tesco Bukit Indah.

Not sure how much they're selling for, and don't know if they still have them after all this time, though.

Yes, Tune Talk SIM packs are still being sold at Mynews. The one at Tesco Bukit Indah was out of stock, but the outlet at Aeon had some.

Thanks to your earlier tip off on this, I managed to buy some for friends who wanted to try Tune Talk but had problems finding a dealer for the SIMs. The packs are RM2 each, self registration required, no value inside.

You can still purchase online new 4G simcard with old plan.

You can purchase more and combine the shipping fee. Pay first and email tron to ship together and they will refund the other fee as credit topup.

Do not purchase old 3G simcard from dealer. It is their old stocks.

Tried digi last week in KL and Penang. Got 4G signal but 3G speed. Digi network seemed to be congested nowadays, keeps getting unable to load webpage errors even after restarting phone multiple times and with 4G signal.

Wink Recent Trip to M'sia

Reached JB by bus around 9.30 pm last Friday, the pushcart shops and 7-11 at JB Sentral said they cannot sell the prepaid card at night after certain timing because they cannot do the registration. I needed internet to book a Grab ride to Sutera area ( RM$17 ) and sadly could not find wifi at City Square or Komtar JBCC. So no choice, took one of the taxi lined outside Komtar, trip was around RM$25.

So fast forward, in KL on Saturday night, Bukit Bintang, Alor Street, I was still determined to get a prepaid card for convenience sake. Encountered make shift stalls that are selling starter pack for higher prices. I know how much is each telco's starter pack price as I saved it on my phone so I just refuse to buy anything for RM$15.00 -RM$18.50 when it cost only RM$8.00 - RM8.50.

Found a convenience store ( forgot is it 7-11 or the other one ) which carries U Mobile cards. The cashier said I have to buy the RM$18.50 if I want data ( 200 MB only ) and if i get the RM$8.50 starter pack - it does not come with any data.

Seriously, if I didn't know better, I would have paid RM$18.50. But luckily I have bought the RM$8.50 pack before in KSL in May and know it comes with a bundled 200MB data.

This is the kind of gimmick that one may encounter if they are not familiar with the prices... I refuse to pay extra $10 for the starter pack and told the guy I wanted my prepaid card without data at the published price on the pack.

When I insert the card into my phone and opened up the umobile app to check, it has data contrary to what the guy claimed.

BTW, for short trips of 1-3 days, U Mobile has promotions at Tesco, selling starter packs for only RM3! ( my cousins snapped 4 packs when they were in KSL JB )

Starter Packs RRP ( As of 29 July 2018 )
Celcom - Xpax RM$10
Maxis - Hotlink RM$10
Digi Prepaid Live RM$8
U Mobile RM$8.50


My trip ended up being 5 days, so my U Mobile 200 MB data and credit were all used up. Bought Xpax from the official Celcom store in NU Sentral, Lvl 2 ( KL Sentral ). Should have bought Xpax from Day 1 if I could since I can choose either 10GB Facebook or 10GB Instagram freebies. I think that's great for instagram heavy users like me.

What is needed to do the registration? Show them passport? Do they need to photocopy or scan passport?
