    hi guys...
    took bullet train Hangzhou to Shanghai station,all along in the train no issues..a bit slow though.
    when in taxi leaving Shanghai Hongqiao station ,I "lost" again my internet connection and my friend's maxis is ok today..
    then when arrived at hotel,
    I did again by deleting the celcom 3g APN,and again connect to via the Express VPN,immediately is restored.
    all along is via China Mobileyoodo signal at top of phone signal.
    and surfing as usual,WhatsApp video,youtube and hotspot to my other phone ...and Google maps can use too...very useful.

    so far very Yoodo RLH good...

    in mainland China without "like back home" internet,one feels at a big loss.

    just updating,cheers.

    hi guys,
    today no problem with internet ..been great and speed too.
    we took Shanghai metro to railway station their underground..between stops ,still works.

    wondering my friend both iPhone and iPad is tethered to my hotspot..from last evening,
    he told me again unable to use his maxis roaming,still being charged rm38 a day!!

    he said my Yoodoo is great and will get one soon cos he travels a lot...helped him to be in touch his work and he needs that for his business.

    one thing good about yoodo is the app and I downloaded to both my phone and useful to check data balance and purchasing e.g.RLH pass ..

    been great..
    leaving for Ningbo and will update from there.

    hope you guys don't mind a bit longwinded,because hotel wifi,etc in mainland are useless,and you will feel frustrated cos cannot use social apps,no YouTube,cannot read email or videocalls etc.

    my experience so far,yoodoo is great and indeed very cost saving for single or group of friends when travelling in mainland China.

    mainland China otherwise is a great place to travel,worth your money,very safe and worth visiting.

    our 4 devices,so far usep up 10GB data,cos in between had to check my YouTube videos

    Hi, last day in China
    Now in bullet train to Hangzhou.
    Last 2 days RLH via
    China Mobileyoodoo using Express VPN, no issues whatsoever and hotspot to 3 other devices,simply great and worth it.
    I spent rm100 only in total for 5 consecutive days RLH pass, whereas my friend Maxis still have issues with connection on and off, lucky can use my YOODOO access,
    He is being charge close to rm 40 a day plus tax..!!

    GLAD TO HAVE YOODOO RLH,
    REALLY MEANS "roam like home" with good savings.

    CHINA is a great place to visit and affordable like in Malaysia, but one needs RLH pass, buy for 2 days ahead of RLH passes, in case forget to renew in time.
    otherwise, may feel disappointed, cannot use local or hotel WiFi are restricted, cannot connect or surf.

    Please download e.g. Express VPN before leaving or arriving in China.
    Currently have a free 7 days trial to use the VPN.

    Just sharing and hope is helpful.

    Cheers

    Hi guys, final update.
    At Hangzhou airport RLH expiring in 5 min, but boarding in another 1 hr, I just renewed another RLH pass cos my friend need to be in touch, his Maxis still cannot access the Internet despite roaming signal present since we left on bullet train from Ningbo.

    We are inside boarding gate, even Starbucks WIFI or airport WIFI, not accessible..in the airport.

    All I can say, I give Yoodo FIVE STARS, for use in mainland China.
    And indeed for 50% less in cost compared to price of other telcos.

    My Yoodoo RLH with Express VPN installed, no issues at all with RLH.

    This is my final update..
    and I hope is helpful to all that are planning for a mainland China trip.

    Signing out.

    Hi guys,
    Updating from GZ or Guangzhou.
    Arrived last nite and managed to activate my RLH, via installed prior Express VPN before departure.
    Service is via ChinaUnicom.
    Just change APN to Yoodo instead of Celcom 3g in the connection settings..AND connect via the VPN.
    All very GOOD.SUPERB SPEEDS and can access all, just RLH.

    Also can this Yoodo can Hotspot to my friends phone and my other phone and can access without VPN via my Yoodo phone... Watch you tube, Google, WhatsApp and other social media...
    Google maps working well..important indeed.

    Already bought another rm20 advance for RLH.. for uninterrupted RLH...and daily for another 3 days for the rest of my visit.

    Yoodo is more than worth it... and great savings for just rm 20 a day.
    Going to Shenzhen tomorrow and will update..

    In summary,
    Yoodo is simply great with huge savings and really live up to RLH...
    ROAM LIKE HOME.

    Cheers
    p.s....
    Tried hotel WiFi... can use to read emails and surf but very limited...

    Just want to thank Yoodo for giving free credits recently after my last China trip comment's... Thanks.

    Hi LOH RUI XIANG, you can use tethering when using our RLH Plus but it doesn't go through VPN so anything that's blocked in China will be blocked on roaming as well cause it's using the Telco there during roaming. You would need your own VPN :)

    No problem whatsoever in Surfing, etc

    Hope is helpful because I feel need to inform this.

    Cheers

    hi guys,
    updating from mainland China.
    all good so far,I buy a day ahead RLH pass so that there no disruption in my internet once previous 24 hours RLH pass expires..

    my friend iphone Maxis roaming was OK on first day only when landed,he downloaded Express VPN before leaving for China and paid for a month and included me in the Express VPN use ..but from yesterday despite the VPN on his phone using maxis he cannot access the internet..instead he is using wifi via my p30pro yoodoo RLH hotspot via VPN..also using his iPad too
    and I also able to use my daily driver Samsung note 9...
    means a lot of savings cos 4 devices are connected in this case for rm 20 aday RLH pass.

    so in a nutshell,so far....
    I give 5 stars for Yoodoo RLH for use in mainland China.

    going to Shanghai later today,will update.

    hope you guys find this useful.
    cheers

    hi guys, just an update.

    my buddy friend though could wifi thru my yoodo phone when we were out and about today,he found hotel wifi very unsatisfactory when we went back to the 4 star hotel with supposedly FREE WIFI.
    since his hotel room is further away from mine, so could not tether to my yoodo phone.

    Actually I passed him an open yoodo simcard I ordered much ealier (Yoodo ambassador..ha.ha) after our last China trip,good that he brought along and said he is convinced by the benefits and cost savings of yoodo RLH.

    guess what,in about than 10 mins, via my yoodo phone hotspot,he managed to activate his new Yoodo simcard (and number selection too)...very impressive indeed,all registration done online and his yoodo phone RLH is working fine via his preinstalled VPN..

    so is great indeed..and I am happy for him.

    p.s.
    after our last China trip,he deactivated his Maxis roaming,he just told me.

    my buddy travels a lot and he said Yoodo is GREAT....and great savings too...cost 50% less daily compared to usual telcos when roaming,using home data.

    sorry for a bit long winded,but anyone planning for holidays,etc to mainland China, I highly recommend yoodo RLH because one will feel frustrated simply being unable to have the "usual" internet access like back home.
    so enjoy your holidays,etc...and simply connect back home without worries...with Yoodo...

    cheers guys.

    hi guys,just updating a little on RLH from Hangzhou China...via China Mobile

    using my p30pro,when landed, already after 9pm RLH activated but unable to surf the internet,
    trying to figure out the whole night.
    this morning
    I just deleted celcom 3G APN,and that's it...able to use internet.

    able to use WhatsApp,YouTube...no block at all..fantastic..great.
    and I can also hotspot to my other mobile phone.and the speed is great.
    e.g WhatsApp video call to home

    hotel wifi is restricted

    just sharing..
    I already inform the help desk..my RLH settled.

    worth it...yoodoo...thumbs up.

    hope stays that way for my next 5 days here.

    my main phone with yoodo simcard needs VPN for internet access,
    yesterday after the 24 hrs pass,there is a temporary pause in connection,the VPN earlier shows as HK origin,is listed as blocked and then when I change in the VPN site to Singapore origin, it works fine.
    ?? due to flare up of protest in HK yesterday.

    I am quite sure need a VPN for yoodo phone to use in mainland China ,my other friends phone and my other phone can access as usual if is tethered (wifi) to that main yoodo phone with the VPN..
    i.e. the other phones no need VPN,and happily "roaming like home too".

    4 of us are travelling and can tether our phones to the main yoodo simcard phone,
    of course my good buddy yesterday activated his own yoodoo simcard phone and with VPN downloaded earlier.

    I hope is helpful..

    a lot of savings ,friends travelling together can tether to just one main yoodoo phone with VPN..

    leaving for Shenzhen in the afternoon..and give another update..

    I am just updating a bit more...for benefits of those travelling to mainland China,

    believe me,without RLH,
    your work or holidays is not complete.

    not easy to get local simcards and is expensive too.

    mainland China is worth visiting,
    safe,modern,advance and affordable if not cheaper than back home...

    cheers.
