Buy iPhone 5 without contract from Apple Malaysia online store, SenHeng or SenQ

ScreenShot3

For those who wanted to buy the iPhone 5 and dont want to get it tied up with contract from Maxis, Digi or Celcom but instead prefers to get it outright, well Apple Malaysia online store is now selling iPhone 5. Same goes to SenHeng and SenQ nationwide. But stocks appears to be limited in SenHeng and SenQ now.

But if you buy from Apple Malaysia online store now, it will ship in 2-4 business days. Which is great. If you buy today, you will get it in under a week.

The retail price for iPhone 5 goes like this:

iPhone 5 16GB – RM2,199
iPhone 5 32GB – RM2,499
iPhone 5 64GB – RM2,799

I personally own the black model but the white model does look great also. And the white is less prone to scratches apparently. But my black model is fine so far. The choice is yours!

Malaysian iPhone 5 plans comparison: Maxis vs Digi vs Celcom

121212-digi-iphone-5-launch-detailsThe Plans for iPhone 5 are all out from the big three: Maxis, Digi and Celcom. But how does the plans do compared to each other? Which is the plan that suits you most or give you the best value for money? Which is the cheapest among all? So you are all confused now on which plan should you go for and you are so undecided. Well, this will definitely help you in making that decision. Here is how the iPhone plans from Maxis, Digi and Celcom compared:

Maxis vs Digi vs Celcom!

From the comparison above, we can see that Digi has the cheapest total cost of ownership compared to the rest. But if you consider the bundled calls, SMS and MMS from Digi’s plan, they are not as good as Maxis. For me, I think that Maxis provide the most value for money plans for iPhone 5 compared to Digi and Celcom. Except for the iValue Simple. In my opinion, it is not as good as it looks. It is cheap, and that’s all. I would prefer iDigi 88 than iValue Simple.

And the best part is, Maxis no longer charges for data when the data quota is exceeded. Only the speed will be throttled. But even a throttled data speed for Maxis is considered fast because the speed is reduced by 3 fold, unlike Digi or Celcom which the data will be throttler to a sad 256kbps. But note that the free SMS that comes with Maxis plans are Maxis to Maxis only. SMS to other operators will be charged.

For Celcom, a combination of calls, SMS and MMS of up to 1500 will be given. That will make it more flexible for people instead of having a fix number of minutes and SMS. And Celcom plans also comes with a huge amount of Data. So if you are someone who seldom call and SMS but uses data alot, Celcom might be the best for you.

In conclusion:

Maxis

Good: Best value for money (excluding iValue Simple). Good coverage. Excellent internet speed. Get free 1000 minutes calls for Maxis to Maxis in your contract period.
Bad: More pricey compared to the others. Concern on bill shock. iValue Simple sucks.

Digi

Good: Cheapest plans for iPhone 5. Low monthly commitment compared to the others.

Bad: Only 24 months contract. Not as powerful coverage. Slow internet speed. iPhone 5 price only subsidized a little.

Celcom

Good: Flexible calls/SMS/MMS plan. Huge amount of data. Good coverage and average internet speed.

Bad: Too little calls/SMS bundled. Most expensive when value for money is concerned.

With this, I hope you can decide better on which plan to go for when you plan to get you iPhone 5. Well maybe you have already decided, but this can make things a little bit clearer to you. So basically if you want a cheaper plan, go for Digi, if you want something with the best value for money, Maxis is the best, if you are looking for flexibility and huge amount of data, there is none other than Celcom.

Enjoy your iPhone 5 people! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. And please share this with your friends and family!

Maxis introduces new cheaper iValue Simple iPhone 5 Plan

ScreenShot1

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:

iValue 1:

1 year: RM1200 commitment + RM1699 iPhone price = RM2899

iValue Simple:

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!

Check out plans from Digi and Celcom!

Digi iPhone 5 plans revealed, priced from RM2012

ScreenShot010

Shortly after Maxis revealed their iPhone 5 plans, Digi have also revealed theirs and similarly, its not much difference from the iPhone 4S plans when 4S is first introduced. Which is in a way good. With Digi iPhone plans, we have iDigi 88, iDigi 138 and iDigi 238 which requires monthly commitment of RM60, RM93 and RM161 respectively. The monthly commitment is cheaper than Maxis but for all the iDigi plans, the iPhone 5 price starts at RM2012. But overall, the total ownership cost will be slightly cheaper for Digi. We will have a comparison chart out soon after Celcom release their plans for iPhone 5.

This is how the iDigi plans look like.
