PHONE HOME

When you're in Malaysia and you want to contact your home country you can buy a sim card. The cost for a sim card is RM10 ($2.50), which included 5MYR of credit valid for five days. There are four main cell service providers in Malaysia: Maxis, Cellcom, Digi, and U Mobile. Of the main four, Maxis has the greatest coverage, followed by Celcom and Digi, and finally U Mobile. Malaysia is a very connected country, and nowhere is that more obvious than when it comes to buying SIM cards.
The prepaid service of Maxis is called "Hotlink", while Celcom has opted for “Xpax.” In any major town or city, it’s almost impossible to walk more than a block without seeing a sign for one or both of them.
Of course you will also find several WiFi points in the larger cities. You will find them mainly in the famous coffee shops, such as Starbucks or Coffee Bean.

Upon arrival at most international airports on the peninsula and Borneo, you will already find kiosks in the terminals, where you can buy sim cards from various brands. You can also find this in the major shopping centers in the cities. You can't miss them.

The APN (Acces Point Name) settings are automatically added to "Hotlink". If you need to add them manually for some reason, they’re as follows:
• APN: max4g
• Username: maxis
• Password: wap
• Authentication type: PAP


While Maxis is usually the most expensive provider, cell service (and data in particular) is relatively cheap in Malaysia no matter which company you choose. Be sure to ask about any current promotions before making a decision about which package to buy. It’s not unusual to get bonus data thrown in.
Oppo is originally a Chinese brand, but is made in Malaysia. OPPO was the best smartphone brand in China in 2019 and was number 5 in the world. It is a mobile phone that is attractively priced. Just like the other Chinese brand Vivo, the device is marked in the Dutch language and you can choose to open with a thumbprint or face recognition. OPPO is usually chosen by young people in Malaysia. You can find these brands in every mall. Oppo specializes in designing innovative mobile photography technology.
