Maxis just recently announces another plan to join the iValue plans for iPhone 5 coming this Friday. This plan will be targeted to the more budget tight market. The plan just requires monthly commitment of RM50 for a 12 months contract and you will get a small subsidy for your iPhone 5.
Phone 5 16GB – RM2,079
iPhone 5 32GB – RM2,339
iPhone 5 64GB – RM2,699
iPhone 4S 16GB – RM1,769
iPhone 4 8GB – RM1,239
The plan gives you 200mins to all operators, 100SMS to Maxis and 1GB data. It looks like a good solution for those who wanted to take Maxis line but doesnt want to pay RM100 or more a month. But if you take a closer look, after some calculation, it is not really worth it. [Click on the image for a closer look on the plan]
Here is why:
1 year: RM1200 commitment + RM1699 iPhone price = RM2899
1 year: RM600 commitment + RM2079 iPhone price = RM2679
The iValue 1 is just RM220 more expensive than iValue Simple which is around RM18 extra/month. With that, you will get more calls, SMS, and data. I think the iValue Simple is just not that simple after all. If you really want to get a cheaper monthly commitment plan, go for Digi’s iDigi 88 plan. That is a better choice. But you have to sacrifice internet speed and coverage for that. SO the choice is yours!
