Sorry to trouble the experts here.

So for JB side, their prepaid card is different from ours? Because we have that $10 monthly for 1GB data.

I would like to get the same. I understand can buy a few of their top up vouchers as mentioned here.
Again, not an expert but just a user...

Same/different in what sense? $10 for 1GB data valid for a month? If so, then I'll say that I just got an offer from Maxis Hotlink RM20 for 3GB valid for a month.

Digi's like RM15 for 2GB + Unlimited Social with Always Active - 30 days account validity. But I'm happy with just their RM1 for 1GB for my 1-day trips, or even 1GB free for 7 days.

But yes, you can buy a few of their reload vouchers and keep for use later, as they're normally valid for a pretty long time. Please remember to check the validity date before paying.

I think he mean a monthly prepaid plan.

I know OneXOX has a OneXOX plan that cost RM10 monthly for 1GB and 20 mins talktime. More info >> OneXOCX Black

The closest DIGI has to a monthly prepaid plan is what they called an Auto-Renewal Plan but the cheapest plan is 5GB for RM30 with data rollover. More info >> Internet Plans Auto-renewal

Celcom also has a monthly auto-renewal plan but you get 15GB for RM30 with data rollover. More Info >> Xpax™ Internet Plans

Umobile also has a monthly prepaid plan. Cheapest plan 1.5GB for RM20. More Info >> Unlimited Mobile Internet . Under Other UMI Plans.

Most of us will stay around few days only in Malaysia thus I think monthly data plan (be it postpaid or prepaid) is kind of waste if we not utilize it.

Yes. What I'm looking at is a prepaid card. Like for Singtel, my mummy's prepaid card account is valid for 6 months. 1 GB data is $10 monthly. Does Digi have something like this?

The last time i went to KSL's Digi, the lady explained to me until my head spinning. Seems like they have alot more selection. Usually i go staycation, is pay I think RM30+ but that one 1 month later no more liao so every time i head in again, have to buy again.

They sell this kind of RM1 for 1GB prepaid only? or do I have to buy the prepaid then need to top up? or do you think roaming will be better for 2 days stay?

Which provider do you recommend?

Bro don't bother going to KSL or City Square Digi, they only want you to spend more. Never stepped into the shop for years.

Retail price for SIM (RM5 credit preloaded) is RM8 and nothing more. You should not be forced by the shop to do a credit top-up just because you want to buy a SIM card; which the shop always tells you that SIM card will cost you RM2x or RM3x and they don't sell SIM only b***s***.

I'm quite sure your Digi prepaid sim still works, just have to top-up every other month and activate a data plan (don't exceed 90 days if I'm not wrong).

Try download the MyDigi app, it's easier to manage and top-up that way.

There are 2 types of data plan - Auto Renew subscription or One-time pass. If you don't use often, I would suggest to just purchase one-time pass which would be sufficient for most - e.g. RM3 for 3GB valid for 1 day. RM12 for 4GB valid for 7 days, etc...

For the cheapest 1-2 days plan, check out the Box of Surprise. I can purchase 1GB for 2 days @ RM1.50.

Depends on your usage, and if you would be travelling to Msia often. RM8 for Digi prepaid with RM5 credit. You don't have to top-up.

I always try to use the app for anything, and only turn to those USSD codes if I've not choice.

Yes, you can extract data for use via the OneXOX app. Can even cancel auto-renewal there too, as far as I can remember...

RM1 for 1GB is via offers like Box of Surprise (BoS) randomly offered to card users so yes, you've to be holding the prepaid card before you can check for such offers.

Depends on your usage pattern and expectation, for your 2-day stay, whether using a prepaid card is more convenient or roaming with your existing line. I personally use my prepaid cards like Digi and Hotlink so often that my M Card is now on zzz mode.

At the moment, I'd say go for Digi. Take sometime to read back the past 10 or 20 pages here, where some members have shared how one can prolong the card's life economically. I even use it for my trips to Batam...

Happened to come across 2 OneXOX dealers in Taman Pelangi area today.

One is... on the same row as Restoran Kak Kak Dim Sum, across the road on the right of Plaza Pelangi.

The other one is on the ground floor of Plaza Sentosa.

No idea how they charge, though, as I didn't ask.

Because i want just a prepaid card for GPS. My garmin don't know why cannot load Msia map so if got 1 MY sim, can use for Google map to Ah Yuan there.

How much data does the RM8 prepaid come with?
