The most abandon the card after one year and get a new one. =:p

But there's no new Hotlink Tablet/Broadband SIM pack to buy anymore. =:p

First they removed the 365-day line validity from the 2GB RM45 pack, and put in Validity365. Then they decided to take away Validity365 from the menu as well.

Looks to me like they're trying to force existing users to give up as well, and make this plan "forever buried and forgotten".

RM5 credit
0.5GB free Chat data (?)
1GB free Saturday data (fast)
1GB free Sunday data (fast)

U Mobile (Power) - RM8.50
10 days validity
10 days 200mb data (fast)
RM5 credit
15mins/day free calls (U Mobile)
After topup RM10:
- 1GB free data (fast)
- 2GB free data (64kbps)
15mins/day free calls (U Mobile)

-

U Mobile (Unlimited) - RM8.50
10 days validity
10 days 200mb data (fast)
RM5 credit
15mins/day free calls (U Mobile)
1GB free data (64kbps)
After topup RM10:
- Unlimited data APP>ONZ (fast)

Digi Best (RM$8 starter pack)
RM5 credit
300MB for 7 days
30 days validity
RM3 for 1GB day pass
[Shop sales person in Bukit Indah says need to top up RM$30 upon buying, so upfront is RM$38]

I only need data, minimal call except for emergency use.
I am on Starhub Happy prepaid, where i buy e 1GB data for $5 when i go in.
Usually shared among 4 pax, 3 of them minimal whatsapp, facebook, but i play game.

I had an internet data counter app that shows how much data passes thru wifi/3G on the tethering phone. And usually when it hits 250MB on my counter, Starhub has alr said that my 1GB has been used up...WTF.

So i am thinking of getting a Malaysian prepaid card as i go in once or twice a month and may need more than 1GB of data (since 1GB is always not enough, which i dont understand). Seems like 3RM for 1GB is best deal for day pass. Is there cheaper than 3RM for 1GB within the apps coz i saw some online exclusive deals within the app on some pics shared in this thread. I am thinking of Digi, Umobile or hotlink.

A few questions:
Does the top-up 1RM in the last few days of grace/inactive period works for all the telcos prepaid? or only Digi?
What r e inactive/grace period of hotlink/Umobile? 60 days for Umobile and 50 days for hotlink.
Digi is 75 days for best, if i saw correctly on someone's post.

Which plan is your Hotlink card?

Does it happen to be in Slot 2 of a non-3GDS phone?

I've a couple of Hotlink cards here, no downtime experienced so far.

How about if you go back 1 page to the main page? You should see the sim expiry date there.

Nope. I explored the whole app. No SIM expiry date anywhere.

Whats the SIM expiry date got to do with the RM45 2GB 365 days topup anyway?

Your SIM card has to be in ACTIVE stage in order for you to use the data that you've subscribed.

On the HOME page, just above where you've drilled in to view the detail of your INTERNET, there's a BALANCE box where your credit balance is shown? This box has 3 rows:

BALANCE
RMxx.xx - (this is your credit balance)
Active until dd mmm yyyy - (this is the validity of your line)

IIRC, Hotlink Tablet SIM validity and 2GB RM45 for 365 days are 2 different thing; one is for SIM itself while the later one is for data ONLY.

Nope. Don't have this "Active until...."

Is your Hotlink app updated? Care to show a screenshot of your HOME page?

Another way to check your credit balance and validity of the line is to use the USSD code *122#.

Yup, I think it's about the time when we got that SMS about Hotlink Tablet Plan becoming Hotlink Broadband Plan.
