Strangely, my OneXOX stopped roaming right in front of my eyes while I was charging the phone the other day.

Try moving your SIM card to another phone. My Celcom cards have been having this issue until I moved one to a newer/better phone. I think it might have something to do with my old phones which I use to just view my less actively-used SIM cards.

If you've your OneXOX account in the app, check the status there too. Mine shows it's still active, so I don't bother that much with the card not roaming since I won't be able to use it anyway.

onexox hard to get signal locally for me


i got 3 onexox card
1 suupose expire which i forgotten
but app show active after expire date
so i hack care
than a mth or 2 later card terminated n disappear in app

so if u need the card than extend the validity bah

for me just donate rm25 extend 1 yr haha
That's a way to just throw in the $ and not have to think about it for a whole year. That amount isn't enough to pay for a McD meal here, anyway.

Don't remind me... I should be in Melaka this time of the year. :(

Anyway, with the present situation, we'll still not be able to go over by the time the RM1 1-day active renewal's grace period is up.

Even if you want to pump RM100 in one shot (which you don't), I doubt that the line will still be active when we're allowed to cross the border...

Personally, I'd either use the RM1 1-day active method, or if your line is the very old Digi Best then RM38 365-day active one.

Hi,

For celcom pre-paid, I used to be able to buy 1 day validity extension via the apps. This helps to keep the account active. Need to do this every 50 days

But I can’t find the 1 day validity extension now. Any idea on this ? Thanks !

On my Digi Live prepaid -- I buy RM1 1day validity by dialing USSD code *128#
(Yes, can access USSD menu on Digi prepaid when in Singapore.)

I no need to use the Digi mobile app -- when buying RM1 1day validity for my Digi Live prepaid.

Not sure about Celcom prepaid -- but if I'm not wrong, you can access USSD menu on Celcom prepaid by dialing *118#

Each time I buy RM1 1day validity on my Digi Live prepaid -- the Digi prepaid SIM is kept alive for another 90days:

* 1day validity + followed by another 90days passive/grace period
(Grace period for Digi Live prepaid is 90days, while grace period for Dig Best prepaid is 75days.)

One day before next grace period ends -- I buy RM1 1day validity again -- and the above cycle repeats :)
(If got just RM5 balance -- can keep the Digi Live prepaid alive for 5 x 90days = 450days -- i.e. more than 1yr 2mths.)

No need to top up at all -- when buying RM1 1day validity on Digi prepaid -- unless prepaid balance falls below RM1.

Currently I still have about RM16+ balance on my Digi Live prepaid.

So without doing any top up -- should be able to keep my Digi Live prepaid alive -- till last 3mths of 2024 :)

I've been doing it via SMS to 28882.

Send 1DAY to 28882, then it'll reply for you to enter YES 1DAY to confirm.

Celcom Xpax has similar function like Digi.

Type "1day" and send to "28882"

Celcom will send a message "U have requested to purchase 1day validity @RM1. To proceed, send YES 1DAY to 28882"

Therefore, the line will have 1 day validity and 40 days of grace period.

Validity can be extended either by reload if account has no credit or use existing credit to buy validity which is at RM1 per day.

As for internet, Celcom charged RM3 for 1GB if you are staying in Malaysia for 1 day. For 1day plan, Celcom won't auto renew. Only weekly or monthly internet plan will auto renew.

So total is RM4 for 1 day trip in Malaysia. The 1day internet plan can be purchased on Xpax app.

As above is my own personal experience. More info on their website.

Can anyone help to answer that this method of sending sms 1DAY to 28882 for Celcom, does reset the grace period of 50 days, without the need to reload?

That's what I've been doing. Of course, you'll still have to ensure the credit balance is enough for the RM1 deduction each time.

Just wondering if anyone is still holding on to a Hotlink SIM card (not the old Hotlink Bagus plan), and waiting for Validity365 to return.

(No flaming, please. I know there're many other options out there, but it's just a matter of personal choice and usage pattern. Just sharing/discussing here; I'm just another user.)
