What I can say here, Musafir plan is totally out of consideration as it’s quite expensive if compare to Ummah and Ilmiah plans. Both Ummah and Ilmiah plans offering competitive and attractive call and sms rates. However Salamfone isn’t a popular operator, I can assume that most of your friends are not using Salamfone but with other operators.

Therefore, I would suggest Ummah plan if you want to get a Salamfone prepaid, unless you have a lots of friends are using Salamfone, then Ilmiah plan can save your pocket a lots of money. But please bear in mind that, nowaday there are more than 10 operators in Malaysia, and thanks to the power of MNP, choosing a flat call rate prepaid plan is always a better idea to save money.
