You are correct on Smartphones being the 'cheapest' way these days to be 'sort off' mobile. As long as you have WiFi connectivity, you can browse the Net, send/receive Text and Voice/Video messages and more for Free ......All you need is a 'cheap' Smartphone [as low as RM99 now ].....one time activation [max RM10].....and someone elses WiFiOriginally Posted by kwchang
"Did you know the cost of making a single call varies depending on the prepaid purchase you make? I believe it is much cheaper (per call basis) if you bought RM30 compared to RM10 uploads."
Chang, this may not be correct. You call rate is not based on the amount you 'top-up', however your 'active period' is. Generally, you need to top-up RM30/mth to keep your phone active.
Not a Prepaid user myself, but purchase it often for the kids when they are back for breaks.....here's what I know about the 'best' package now.
Call rates using a Prepaid Sim is no longer at those exorbitant rates like they were charging a few years back. Back then it was something 0.38sen/min or more. ......Now most are charging rates similar to Postpaid.....which should be right because Prepaid call should be cheaper because you have already paid upfront for it, No Credit charges! .......They had no choice....Once WhatsApp and others started offering Free Calls, they got sXXXed
The best package right now is U-Mobile Prepaid.......They are aggressively penetrating this huge market. At 10sen/min for calls, 8sen SMS, to all Networks, Free 3GB [1GB High Speed], Credit roll over to next month - the package is good. Plus if you purchase a new Sim @RM8.50 plus 10 bucks topup from 99 Stores....you get 5 packs of Sarawak Laksa Free plus I think 7-11 has other offers for top-up too
