I'd like to get a SIM card in Malaysia for just a week. Is that possible or does one have to prove residency/sign a contract to get one?

Malaysia's got loads of prepaid mobile providers (Digi, Maxis, Celcom, U) and you can buy a SIM card at any of their service outlets or mobile phone shops. You don't need to sign a contract, but you will need to fill out a registration form and show some ID to get one (bring your passport). The cheapest ones (i.e. with minimum credit) is 10 RM.
Thanks for the info. I got a SIM card from Digi. I think it was around 15 RM and came with 8.50 credit. For 5 a day can get Internet for smartphones which is a good deal.

Just a note--I wouldn't recommend Digi for one reason. They sent me at least 5-10 text messages per day, with many of these between 2 and 5am. I use my phone as an alarm clock so it was annoying.

Tune Talk Traveller Sim pack is really worth it.
You pay Rm30 for RM30 worth of credit and on top of that you'll get free data.
It is a good bargain if you are travelling to Malaysia.
I for surely recommend to used this sim card.
