Just read the link u sent me, based on my understanding they tend to offer the data-carryover. My problem is, too many plans to choose from(onexox,onexox black, season plan, fat data plan etc.).

Any summary/help from seasoned onexox users?

They've 2 types of SIM cards/plans - OneXOX Prepaid, and OneXOX Black which I was told it's like (or works like?) a combo of prepaid and postpaid. Back when I got my OneXOX, there's only 1 type and it works for me so I've not gone to find out more about Black. From what I understand, there are not many Black users around.

Season Pass is what that link has described/explained. It basically works like a wallet.

FAT Data Plans are just different types of data packs for you to withdraw from Season Pass or subscribe directly, the latter which will result in a deduction of your credit balance.

Maybe it'd be easier for you to get one of the dealers (can search either the Travel Bazaar here, or past discussions where dealers in SG were recommended by existing users), and get him to explain to you according to your usage needs/pattern.

Hotlink prepaid from Maxis, initial validity I think is 5 days, thereafter 50 days grace period to reactivate via reload, etc.

See Hotlink RED Plan for details.

Is there any maxi prepaid data card with long validity like the onexox?

I've been using onexox and observed that the celcom network wasn't good. Wanted to try other telco liao.

Just JB alone. The signal fluctuates until I cant even game at all. Always drop signal every now and then.

I don't recall having such issue when I use hotlink last time. I've also checked with some mysian frens and they also commented celcom cmi in JB area.

Good info, so for Digi prepaid, buy rm$1 SSL to extend validity 75 days.

But if only I once a year, Dec go Malaysia, and don't need to keep the number, is it slightly cheaper and less hassle to buy a new $8 Digi starter pack with rm$5 value inside?

And can I buy extra Digi starter pack to keep, don't open and keep for one year? What's the expiry to start using?


Yes, Digi Best prepaid has inactive/passive period of 75days...
If your Digi Best prepaid's validity is till 11th Sep 2018 -- that means your Digi Best prepaid is active till 11th Sep 2018.

After 11th Sep 2018, your Digi Best prepaid will become inactive/passive.

Inactive/passive period will be 11th Sep 2018 + 75days.
In this case -- inactive period will be from 12th Sep 2018 to 25th Nov 2018 (11th Sep 2018 + 75days ==> will be till 25th Nov 2018)

On 25th Nov 2018, if you extend/renew validity by buying RM1 SLL (Super Long Life), your Digi Best prepaid will be active again for 24hrs (1 day) -- till 26th Nov 2018.

After 26th Nov 2018, your Digi Best prepaid will become inactive/passive.

Inactive/passive period will be 26th Nov 2018 + 75days.

Is the above clear enough? :)

Also -- ANYTIME (during inactive/passive period) if you reload/top up -- your Digi prepaid will become active.
Each RM1 you reload gives you 1 day active for the Digi prepaid.

If you do a single reload of RM5, you get 5 days active period for your Digi prepaid.
If you do a single reload of RM10, you get 10 days active period for your Digi prepaid, etc.

Note: the active period you get on your Digi prepaid for reload -- does not stack.



Yes, you can extend/renew validity on the Digi prepaid by buying the RM1 SLL when in Singapore :)

You can buy the RM1 SLL either by:
(1) Using USSD code.
(2) Using the Digi app.

Refer to a post I wrote (some time ago in this thread) about paying RM1 to extend validity on Digi prepaid via USSD code HERE:
https://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/105692913-post4699.html

The service to deduct money from Digi prepaid card balance -- in order to PAY & BUY active/validity period is called SLL (Super Long Life).

Refer to a post I wrote (some time ago in this thread) about Digi prepaid SLL (Super Long Life) HERE:
https://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/105695966-post4701.html

Extend validity by buying RM1 SLL is just paying RM1 to buy 1 day active period for the Digi prepaid -- you're not buying any data.

AFAIK, (As far as I know),
From 2017 onwards, newly bought Digi prepaid SIM cards all comes with FREE basic Internet.

That means, if your Digi BEST prepaid comes with FREE basic Internet, you have FREE Internet access (at slow 64kbps speed up to 500MB/mth) -- without the need to buy any data plan.

If 64kbps is too slow for you, you can always buy any Digi prepaid data plan.
You'll have 4G/LTE full speed Internet after you buy (any) data plan on your Digi prepaid.

You can buy data plan for your Digi prepaid either via USSD code (*116#) or via the Digi app.

(Internet speed on the Digi prepaid will revert back to slow 64kbps once the prepaid data plan you bought expired or you used up the mobile data quota in the data plan.)

Note: You can only access Internet when your Digi Prepaid is active !!

Even if you buy data plan during inactive/passive period -- you cannot use the data plan (or use the FREE basic Internet) to access Internet on the Digi prepaid.

You can only access Internet on the Digi prepaid once it is active.



Both Digi BEST & Digi Live prepaid has respective pros & cons.
Which is "better" depends on your usage requirements.

(Since this post is getting long & tedious, I'll refrain from discussing the differences between Digi BEST & Digi Live prepaid here.)

It's best (pun intended) you go find out the differences between Digi Best & Digi Live prepaid -- and decide for yourself which one suits your usage better :)

Digi BEST prepaid no longer seems to be listed on the Digi prepaid Web site:
https://new.digi.com.my/prepaid

So not sure whether Digi BEST prepaid is still being sold or not.

Back to the issue of buying RM1 SLL on the Digi Best prepaid...

Personally, if I need to buy RM1 SLL -- my habit is to try & buy it on the inactive period 74th day -- instead of on 75th day.

Why?
If I'm busy & forget to buy RM1 SLL on inactive period 74th day -- I can still buy the RM1 SLL on (next day) 75th day.

If you're busy & forget to buy RM1 SLL on inactive period 75th day -- then you can no longer buy RM1 SLL on (next day) 76th day.

If no reload/top up done or no SLL purchased within 75 days inactive period -- on the 76th day the Digi Best prepaid card will be terminated.

Hope the above helps.

Don't think can.. I bought before a prepaid sim card and keep.. Did not put sim card in phone.. Few weeks later go in Malaysia try to use the sim card but it wasn't able to connect to any network.

In the end go back to the retailer, retailer mentioned that telco will auto unregister the sim card if the card is not used within a couple of days. Just need to re-register by scanning passport again.

I read but still not sure if Digi Live 90 days grace period start on the day of expiry or after.

For example MyDigi app show my card expired on 16 Nov 2018.

If start from and inclusive of 16 Nov 2018 then the 90th day will be 13th Feb 2018.

If start from and inclusive of 17 Nov 2018 then the 90th day will be 14th Feb 2018.

I read it's best to extend validity 1 day prior in case something crops up unable to extend but need to confirm which of the above is correct.

I've already set my calendar to alert me but will MyDigi app or Digi sms notify on the last day?

As you get closer to the expiring date,they would send you sms to extend and top up to keep using. But I suggest you to extend it earlier say on the 80th day or so.

I'm not sure exactly at which point the SMS reminding will arrive, but I agree that it's better to extend much earlier than to wait till the last one or two days.

Been maintaining my malaysia card as I go in quite frequent. Im on hotlink, and I let it run autoroam in Singapore. As long as you don't call your credit won't drop.

And hotlink is easy as it shows you when is the termination date
