Previously, if you want to own a iPhone in Malaysia, you will have to be tied on contract to Maxis, Digi or Celcom. Or you can get it contract free from unofficial sources which is usually very expensive(iPhone4 costs around RM2800-3200 contract free, ridiculous!).
But that has changed, the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS is available on Apple Malaysia website to be purchased. Contract free. And kinda affordable. The iPhone 4(8GB) will be available in Black and White for RM1799(free shipping) and the iPhone 3GS(8GB) will be RM1199 available only in Black. Excited? Click on this link to bring you right to the site which you can place BUY NOW! Personally, I think the iPhone 3GS is well worth the price. It is still a very decent smartphone I would say.
For those who are more keen on the iPhone 4S, we will have to wait lasted until the end of the year to find out if the iPhone 4S will be available contract free also.
