5) Where can i get the router at a cheap price?

B618 - 22d - CELCOM (Sim-locked). Free with contract plan for 2 years.
B618 - 65d - TM point (Unifi). Pay device RM565.09 (0% GST on 1st June 2018).
Shopee or any online platform. 22d price ranging ~RM400-500.
*(Ask warranty information from the seller. We will not responsible for any of your lost by following this guide)

7) Can it be used for Digi, Maxis, Yes, and Umobile?
The 22d batch from Celcom is sim-locked. You cant use other telco's sim card. Even if your contract has been terminated/finished, there's no guide or ways stated at any celcom official communication or platform or terms and condition on how to unlock the router. You may need to contact them directly on how to unlock this router afterwards, if there's a way.
On the other hand, 65d (Unifi set) is working for all telcos.

8) Latest Firmware (warning. Only tested to be OK with 22d. 65d kindly avoid if you're worried about bricking your modem)

Fine Details on Termination - Celcom and TM Terms and Condition

Celcom
Termination can only be done at Blue Cube.
Policy of 30 days - If you terminate before 30 days, the penalty of RM499+GST will be taken if you dont return the modem. No charge if u return a good working modem.

» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


Contract - Contract 2 years can be terminated by paying penalty using the calculation below.

» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


With that, eventhough you have a contract for 2 years, you can still terminate with less than RM499 (although you may need to pay monthly subscription tho).

Is it wiser to terminate later than terminate within 30 days to own the router?
Its basically up to you. Most of us, already have other carrier/internet plan. Thus, its wisely to terminate within 30 days compared to paying monthly RM70 eventhough you are paying cheaper termination penalty

Celcom SOS

PDF format (as seen on 25/4/18)
PDF format (as seen on 7/4/18)

Unifi
You can terminate through live chat (recommended). Live Chat Link
The modem may not need to be returned and no penalty.

Can you terminate straight away/same day for Unifi?
Yes you can. RM0.
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «

No u cant. Starting from 1st August, TM need at least 30 days for termination notice at live chat.
Meanwhile for Celcom set, u can terminate it within 30 days without penalty (returned modem) or reducing balance (after 30 days free period)

U can try claim it back or like Alex said, just pay it.
It was supposed to be free. I do also experience need to pay until I live chat again and provide proof of previous screenshot saying it's free. They waive the charges after that.
