Ah, OK, think I got it now. (Was on mobile phone earlier. :s13: )

Is yours a new account? I was comparing with the app info on my own phone to see what's going on.

I think the first screenshot you showed, that 5GB is an FOC one? Then yes, the second screenshot shows 5GB in your Season Pass. :)

Yup, FATD1 is daily plan, so deductible from your credit balance. I don't keep track from which account, since they'll just deduct from one and then the other if there's not enough in the former. :o

And yes, I just did a 500MB monthly subscription this morning, and it's deducted from Season Pass. Then I almost immediately went to cancel the auto-renewal too. :D ... Just make sure you choose the right option, that is to cancel the auto-renewal and NOT to stop the data (immediately).

Many thks, bro ;). Yes, just got my card yesterday. I get 5GB free for 30 days. Not sure the 5GB shown in the link abv refers to the free 5GB cos there is no other place that shows the 5GB that I paid for. I thought my profile will show 10GB but turns out that wasn't the case :s11:.

Life would be more straight forward if myxox app has a SP Withdrawal menu instead of putting the SP Withdrawal into the Data Subscription menu. Thought I had to pay RM12 to withdraw 500MB from SP account when I saw the RM12 behind the FAT500 plan :(

yeah the apps still doesnt have option to withdraw data from SP. i'm as a dealer also not happy hearing some users accidently bought these basic plans instead of getting the starter pack. & the people who introduced them the xox sims also didnt guide them to get starter packs. hmm
after many checks done, turns out the only way to withdraw from SP is from *150# & do it when in MY.

Just managed to have a quick glance from the app:

Note under the Data Subscription reads:

* Monthly and weekly data will be deducted from Season Pass account, followed by airtime if there are insufficient balance in Season Pass account.

* Daily data will be deducted directly from airtime.


I find this very straightforward, no fuss about method to withdraw since I normally use the app for all my prepaid cards, whenever available.

If you're to ask how you'd know which is daily, weekly, and monthly data, it's listed as such:
FAT1 FAT2 FAT5 FAT10 FATW2, FATD1 FAT500

Hope the above helps somewhat. :)

Remember the note about monthly, weekly, and daily data that I mentioned a couple of days back? I guess older users would have found this really/more useful as it's not there previously. It's a reassuring add-on. =:p

It's sort of a risk when I first chose to withdraw via the app, rather than many who went the USSD or SMS way. But I did it a few times and wasn't charged, so I just continued and only made sure to check my credit balance after each withdrawal. ;)

Anyway, from what I've observed over these 1.5 years since I first got my OneXOX card, they do take note of user feedback and tweak whatever's necessary. So perhaps we'll see more improvements to the app as we go along. ;)

Oh, 2 differences between OneXOX and the other main prepaid cards that I can think of, offhand - 1) OneXOX supports auto-roaming for calls and text, but not data roaming. So we're safe from any "accidental" data roaming charges. 2) SMS to OneXOX 5-digit numbers shouldn't be done while you're roaming, unless you're prepared to be charged. I think it's RM2.50 per SMS.

Some of us earlier users have been charged for stuff we're not aware of, when we first started. But let's just take them as payments for lessons learned. Too bad none of the dealers we've here are active enough to list and share latest information with us, so we just learn as we go along. :)

i need to go to Msia once or twice monthly to visit the KL branch ... so i tried a lot prepaid cards but so far i find Hotlink (By maxis) being the more user frenly.... the apps , the ease to recharge, the quality of 4G is better than those i tried. Celcom's Xpax is the worst...

Hotlink , Digi is good and pretty risk free from facing any issues.... Umobile is cheap but many non urban area u get no 3g/4g

I am a noob with Xox.

Just received my Sim card last week via mail from the XOX dealer xxxx8133

I followed his advice to buy a season pass - just bought data SPD1 (20GB) for RM100.

A few questions:

1) Do I need to do anything else if I am going to Malaysia and using this SIm card? (I read some people talking about 'withdrawals' which confuses me)

2) This 20GB can use anytime within the next 28 months? Or does XOX gradually deduct away the data even for non usage?

Thanks for any clarification....

Based on my knowledge:

1) Put SIM in and use straight

2) The SP data validity will follow your SIM validity which can be more than 28 months, and the SP data act as your DATA bank, withdraw from it when needed and minimum data will be 500MB.

Please note that each monthly data plan is automatic renew for the next month, so you will need to send DATA AR OFF to 23388 OR via mobile APP to request stop data plan renewal for each data plan you had subscribed.

Good practice to do so otherwise our SP DATA will be depleted very fast due to auto-renewal..

I would be quite wary of trusting Malaysia telcos esp if you have subscribed to a long term plan. Much like their government, they tend to flip flop and arbitrarily change things, often without even informing users.

For example, I started off with 2 Hotlink tablet SIMs because of the RM45 for 2GB 1 yr data plan. Then Hotlink quietly stopped the Tablet SIM plan and converted these SIMs to normal SIMs, but allowed users to continue purchasing 1 yr of data for RM45. At that time the SIM expiry followed the data plan in force.

Sometime early this year and without warning, they suddenly imposed a new rule that even if you had purchased an annual data plan, the SIM expired if you did not top up every 50 days. I lost all the balance, including unused quotas in my SIMs. Thats RM90 down the toilet.

For me I think its safer to stick to pay per use on Tunetalk rather than to buy an annual (or longer) plan and hope that nothing changes.

thanks for your answers.

The part that I don't understand is that I paid MYR 100 for the 20GB of data - so where does the monthly data plan come in? Isn't XOX a prepaid system?

nt gd ah???????????
Both are said to be more costly, at least in a long run.

Maxis is known to have very good connection, but not cheap. Celcom is not cheap either, and connection can do if it's there.

thanks for your answers.

To be exact, it's known as OneXOX and yes, it's a prepaid card.

Season Pass is like a wallet where the data you bought is kept. AFAIK, it's no pay-as-you-use (PAYU) data so you'll have to subscribe to one of the data packages (see list I've shared in previous page or so).

Other than the daily one, the amount of weekly/monthly data you choose to subscribe to, will be withdrawn from your Season Pass wallet if there's enough, otherwise they'll deduct from your credit balance (amount indicated against each package in the list).

Frequent travellers may keep the same number for long run...

BATA only good for those short trip and less frequent visitors, don't forget you will need to do the registration for every new SIM. :s22:

Thanks. I think I get it....

True test will be when I go over this Sunday and use it :s13:

I got myself a hotlink sim, was juz walking and seeing the numbers, my gf found one she liked so we got it.

Not bad lah, since we were in Malaysia for 3 days, the data really helped. RM15 means only like $3 for 3 days of Internet.

After that I also when Malaysia for one night, when I reach I downloaded the hotlink app... And registered, and they give me free 1gb for 48hours. Shoik sia!

As for topup.... I so far have gotten one rm5 top up code, just buy from anywhere. 7-11, pharmacies, news vendors. U can keep it for use when u need to.

So even when my card expire.... As long as I am within the grace period. I can just throw the value in and use the card. Even if I forget and the card expires.... I only spent like $5 and have already used data there for 5 days. So really money well spent... Only regret that with data... GF will spend time on what's app. Lol

Surfing on NSHW with ONEXOX, connection has been good right from CIQ.

From experience though, "class" of phone does make some difference in connectivity, thus I'm using my Galaxy A9 Pro instead of the Galaxy A7 2017 now.
