Celcom First Voice – Postpaid + Prepaid Plan

Celcom has just introduced a new postpaid plan on 27th June. Why I titled it as postpaid + prepaid plan? I’ll explain it to you later, keep reading…

In this Celcom First Voice, all the Voice Call, Video Call, SMS as well as MMS rates are same. And there will be a free mobile internet data, but sadly to say, it’s very little. Anywhere, it’s better than none.

Between that, there is a new payment channel, where you can pay your bill by buying a reload coupon and pay off your bill. But there is additional 5% of service charges. Ok, not too much talking, let’s see how is Celcom First Voice plan offer:

Supplementary LinesCelcom 1+ 5

When you register your new Celcom First Voice, you can choose either prepaid or postpaid. For prepaid, you have to top up the monthly commitment, then you only able to make outgoing call, SMS as well as MMS.

Advantages:

  1. Lower commitment
  2. Free data, although it’s very little
  3. 1 flat rate
  4. Auto rate adjustment, e.g. you use Prime plan, but usage reach Premier in the mid of month, your rate will be adjusted to Premier plan rate until next billing cycle
  5. Can reload via reload coupon
  6. Prepaid exempt from 6% government tax

Disadvantages:

  1. Expensive SMS rate, like Maxis postpaid (Exec plan only RM 0.12/SMS)
  2. Prepaid charge 5% service tax (to cover their prepaid reload coupon commission paid to their distributor)

    I'm using celcom exec50, and thinking to convert to celcom first plan. But after read your article, I prefer to stay with exec50. I just want to ask you, now i using this package without data plan. If i want to subscribe to data plan, and still remain with exec50, could you suggest me the best way. Thank you for your article.

      Hi Anok Oghe,

      I'm glad that you have revealed which is more worth to you after you read my article.

      For the data plans, there is no any different between the new first voice and old exec. The same data plans as I mentioned in the article.

      And it won't affect your eligible total discount in old exec 50 or auto rate in new first voice, as they are not counted.

      So my advice would be stay with your current plan and add-on the data plan. Please keep in your mind that to add-on data plan (except Pay Per Use, Daily and Weekly plans), you have to go in person to any Celcom branches or Celcom Blue Cube.

      If you think my article is useful, please help me to share it to your friends and I hope you will come to read this blog frequently. I'm glad to have you here.

      Thank you. 🙂

    Hi, may I know, if I take PRIME (RM40/month) , if I used less than RM40/month, do I still have to pay RM40 or just pay the amount I used?

    Hi,

    Im planning to convert my uox prepaid plan to celcom first data mAdvance plus but im not sure is it worth to commit the plan.

    Currently im using my uox with data plan rm18 1gb for a week. Im only use around half of the quota every week. There’s no monthky data plan for prepaid. I spend rm72(rm18x4) + rm20 airtime for sms n voice call every month which is too much for me as especially the weekly data plan.

    Should i convert or stay with my current uox plan?

      Hi trinitritoluene,

      Since I don’t know exactly your voice and sms usage, but as you said is RM 20. And your current monthly spent is RM 92, so I would agree with you to switch to first data mAdvane plus, if you want to stick with Celcom.

      But if you want to look for other options, you may read my previous posts.

      Thank you.

    “For the data plans, there is no any different between the new first voice and old exec.” –> no it wasnt.. the truth is.. even that data is the same volume and price but you should consider that if you subscribe data on Celcom First plan, you will blocked whenever your reach your quota. and for Celcom exec subscriber, if you subscribe for data plan then its unlimited even your data reach your quota, but in lowest speed.

    i am the who was converted from exec to first.. and you know what i feel? i REGRET it a lot. we must realize that we need this data plan even in lowest speed to maintain our connection to our emails and so on. just my opinion..

      Hi,

      Please do read http://www.rmvalues.com/blog/2012/07/06/compare-celcom-first-voice-and-celcom-exec/

      Since you said your usage is around RM 200, if continue using exe 50, you will get 30% discount, so it would be RM 60. Total bill to pay is RM 140. And charges per minute is RM 0.11.

      If you take First Prime, the charges is RM 0.15/minute, it’s not worth to change.

      If you take First Premier, the charges is RM 0.12/minute, it’s not worth too.

      If you take First Elite, the charges is RM 0.10/minute, it’s worth. However, previously you paid RM 140 (after 30% discount), but now you have to pay RM 150, and due to cheaper call rate, so your usage should be lower than RM 140, but you still have to pay RM 150.

      Because you did not share with us whether you take any mobile data package and your monthly average call and sms usage, so I can’t really recommend you whether to switch the plan or not.
