Thanks
The code worked...
Didn't set anything on my phone.
I need to key in the pin whenever I power on... Weird...

Sent from LGE LG-H815 using GAGT

0123 worked?

Probably someone has set the SIM card lock.

You can go to the Settings > Security of your phone and unlock the SIM card and/or change the SIM PIN.

The current rate for Validity 365 is RM33; I believe it should be the same for this latest plan. Someone has switched his #Hotlink to FAST before subscribing to Validity 365, and hasn't mentioned any increase in cost.

New Hotlink FAST should be available together with #Hotlink, but I've not had a chance to check at the shops yet. Was in City Square and Komtar JBCC area on Monday, and didn't know about FAST then. =:p

Something I've noticed on the FAST's link, though. There doesn't seem to be any 1-day internet pass... :s22:

Now I'm tempted to grab a FAST to play with! :s13:

hahah just for the 4G? :s12:

ah thanks for the confirmation and link!

You're welcome. Update us if it works, and don't forget the additional RM30 that has to be pumped in after the activation. :)

nice.. haha do try.. your feedback is very helpful =:p

Ah, I've already been using Hotlink for about 2 years! Maxis is still my favorite MY telco today, though its SG partner is nowhere near. =:p

Just thinking if I want to get this new plan that allows Validity 365 as well, but the lack of 1-day mobile internet package is holding me back. :s22:

If you ask me, I'll recommend you use Maxis Hotlink or Celcom Magic SIM, both of which I've had good connection while wondering around. Digi Best works too, as gathered from friends' feedback though they've not gone to any ulu areas. I surf with my Digi Best too, but use it mainly for calls/SMS. =:p

If you're getting your SIM pack in Melaka, want to be on Celcom network, and want a SIM card you can keep for a longer period, can considered getting a Tune Talk SIM pack from their dealer in Mahkota Parade mall. You can get 1GB of data free with a RM30 reload, and can also subscribe for a 1-year validity extension at a cost of just RM28. ;)

Last time I was in Cameron Highlands, handphones were not common, let alone prepaid SIM cards. =:p

I did a quick search on this thread and got quite a few results. I'd go with Celcom or Maxis. ;)

Oh, since you'll be getting your new SIM pack in Melaka, then almost all will be easy to get - the telco centers are all within walking distance of each other! :s13:

Tune Talk is an MVNO riding on Celcom network, 4G SIM packs are already available at that dealer in Mahkota Parade, but I'm not sure if 4G network is available fully in Melaka yet though I got a glimpse of it at some stage.

Maxis and Celcom have 4G there, and quite sure I saw Digi has too when I was playing with the free 1.2GB I got from my reload. Celcom Center is just down the street on the right of Hatten Hotel, Maxis Center also in Mahkota Parade, and Digi Center's to the left of Mahkota Parade just walk further up the main road.

Looks like we've some similarities in our expectations from these prepaid cards, so I'd suggest you go for Maxis Hotlink (#Hotlink or New Hotlink FAST, depending on your needs) or Celcom Magic SIM, top up with the required amount, and subscribe to their 1GB (or higher) data package.

Are you referring to the Hotlink Tablet Plan?

If so, the SIM pack costs RM30, and it comes with free 1GB of data and a validity of 365 days.

Should you require more data, you can choose between 1GB valid for 60 days at RM25, or 2GB valid for 365 days at RM45.

https://www.hotlink.com.my/en/plans/hotlink-tablet-plan.html


Since the validity for both cases no change, it will be good if only do top-up when there is a need as additional RM5 (RM45+RM5) can get us total 2GB of data with 120 day (60+60days)

I just helped a friend do an EXP2 about 2 weeks back and it still worked.

Did it via SMS, though.

Type EXP2 (or EXP1 if you want to extend for 1-year at RM30)
Send to 28882

Hi Habrosus, can we do credit validity extension during the grace period? I vaguely recalled the grace period is 50 days now. Not sure if that is still applicable as i found them on another plan tnc site.

edit: guess i found my own answer.

the Customers will not be able to utilise the Service in the event that the Customer’s account is in the Grace Period. For the avoidance of doubt, grace period shall mean fifty (50) days from the expiry date of the prepaid account (“Grace Period”). The Customer shall be able to utilise the Service once the Customer performs a reload during the Grace Period;

the Customer can check the status of the Package’s Validity Period or Volume Quota by sending MAX STATUS to 28882 or dial *118# and selecting ‘Internet’;

Customers are allowed to subscribe to any other Packages before the expiry of the Validity Period the current Package subscribed by the Customer (“Current Package’s Validity Period”). In the event that Customer chooses to subscribe to another Package (“New Package”) before the expiry of the Current Package’s Validity Period, the Validity Period of the New Package shall supersede the Current Package’s Validity Period any existing Volume Quota shall be forfeited.

Customers will have to be in active state to utilize the services mentioned in Clause 3.1 above. Customers in grace period will have to reload and to continue utilizing their services
the Customer may be able to experience 4G LTE service with surf speeds up to 75MBps subject to the following:
the Customer has USIM;
the Customer’s device is 4G compatible; and
the Customer uses the Service in an area with 4G network;

Good question! And I need to go read that clause you've shared again.

I've 2 more cards to help extend in a few days' time, 1 was extended up to the day after the end of the previous EXP2, while another is not. I wonder if I can do the latter, if not I'll have to do some credit-sharing to reactivate it. =:p
