If you plan to stay longer in Sabah, eg. more than 5 days, or you wish to contact with the local tours, we recommend you to buy a Prepaid SIM Card for your convenience. There are some telecommunication companies here : Digi, Celcom, Hotlink, Tune Talk, etc.
You just bring along your passport and purchase the starter pack from any branch or certified dealers of the company, then you may have your happy airtime.
Please be attention to the "Activation Date"! If you failed to activate the card before the date, this card will become invalid.
Mobile numbers in Malaysia will always start with 01 (ie 01x-xxx-xxxx). If you are expecting a call or text messaging you from abroad, don’t forget to have them remove 0 and then add +60 for the Malaysia country code (+601x-xxx-xxxx).
