- If 2 MaxisONE Prime Trial SIM Cards are active, the 2 lines will be migrated to MaxisONE Prime 98 at RM98/mth and MaxisONE Share at RM48/mth respectively, with a RM48x6months rebate. That is an equivalent total monthly fee of RM98/2lines = RM49/mth per line for the first 6 months; or
- If 3 MaxisONE Prime Trial SIM Cards are active, the line will be migrated to MaxisONE Prime128 at RM128/mth and the remaining 2 lines will be migrated to MaxisONE Share at RM48/mth with a RM48x6months rebate for each individual MaxisONE Share Lines.
