Your data expiry date 15th Apr 2018.

But your sim active until 4th May 2017.

So if your sim expire on 4th May 2017, you will not be able to use your data.

Nope. That's the credit of RM4.16 which expires on 4th May 2017 la.

I think you got it wrong, please refer to below for more details.

Hotlink Tablet plan


;)

I saw this quote from one of the posts there

"if you just want to extend validity for the sim card, just purchase RM45 2GB 365 validity, it is the same as RM33 Validity365, plus 2GB."

That's just what i did a few days ago.

Please refer to Post #372 in that thread.

As most of us mentioned here, SIM and DATA validity is two different thing for Hotlink Tablet Paln... :s22::s22::s22:

Please report back after 04th May on the situation if you can use the datas. This will help everyone on the sim and data confusion. Thank you.

Another way to verify this, if if you plan any Malaysia trip after 5th May 2017 (2 weeks away), try to use your tablet SIM and you will definitely get a better understanding on what we have discussed here..

Jackpot if he can use his data after that date, coz I've another card expiring later in the month that I won't need to trash then. We shall see... :D

It's actually pretty straightforward if you've been keeping yourself updated on what's been happening with this plan over the past year, especially over the past 6 months.

If you want complicated... I'll tell you now that even if you can't use the data after 4th May 2017, you'll find your credit balance still there if you reload within 50 days after that.

Actually not complicated if you know what all these terms are referring to.

Hm, many of us told you that it will affect your sim being active but let's really hope that you can still use it after the 4th.

May the 4th be with you...

According to your photo.

Simcard active validity is until 4th may. after which on 5th may onwards,
your simcard is SUSPENDed from using any services.

just that simple.

even if you applied for data that expires months after 4th may,
your data will only work till 4th may as mentioned above.


just think of it as this

Sim validity is a bowl, data validity is the water in the bowl.
Bowl break liao due to it being expire, your water also habis,
gone.

you renew the bowl by topping up your credits to make it valid again to hold your water aka data for usage.

Heresay is 50 days + 7 days grace. I have a card which expired after the 50 days period but within the 7 days grace, managed to have it reactivated via AskHotlink (Facebook). Do note there's a 5 working days to reactivate this.

Nevertheless, you can try your luck by asking them via Facebook or Twitter, quite responsive (normally within 1 hour during their operating hours). Hotlink can't re-activate card via top-up after 50 days period.

1 have 2 tablet sim cards

Card 1.
I topup RM50 and purchased the 2GB for 365days last Dec.
Wanted to used last weekend but cannot connect.
Went to Maxis.
They told me sim expired. =(

Card 2
I got my JB colleague to topup RM50 a few wks back.
Last weekend I bought the 2GB 365 plan.
While at Maxis to sort out card 1, they confirmed that my card 2 is valid only till May 14th, after which it can't be used, even though I just bought the 2GB plan on that day!

AFAIK, 75 days for DiGi Best, and 90 days for DiGi Live.

Check their website for confirmation.

From what I see, your Card 1 was already near to its expiry date, maybe by Q1'17. For your Card 2, May 14th is already its original expiry date.

Once again, Maxis has already changed their terms for this Hotlink Broadband Plan (previously known as Hotlink Tablet Plan) such that extension of data package does not include validity extension for the card/line.

If you want to continue using your subscribed data after May 14th, you'll have to top up each time to reactivate the line (@RM1 for 1 day) before it's terminated.

In general, stages for a prepaid card: Active > Expired/Passive/Inactive > Terminated

It seems that they are trying to squeeze more milk ($$$) from us for this tablet plan. :s22:

Not only we need to pay for data subscription, we will also need pay extra $$$ to keep the SIM alive..

That's what I thought when they initially added Validity365 to this plan, but I guess there're still users out there (in Malaysia, probably) who were relying only on Maxis network (or maybe they didn't know about others like OneXOX) and thus willing to pay the total of RM78.

Then they removed Validity365 and said users have to keep the line active via the regular reload way, and that's when it'll eventually become extinct... :s22:
