Tomorrow iPhone 5 will be official launched in Malaysia by Celcom, DiGi and Maxis. And tonight thousands of peoples will go to queue at SoHoKL (DiGi), Capsquare Centre (Maxis) or selected Celcom Blue Cube for being the first to own the long waited Apple iPhone 5.
For those who have already owned an iPhone 5 regardless purchased from Singapore or anywhere from the world or those who will buy 1 extra iPhone 5 from Maxis during the launch event (Maxis allow to buy 1 extra iPhone 5 without contract after 1st contract signed), you definitely need a nano sim card.
Although there are plenty of tutorials guiding you on how to cut your current normal or micro sim card into nano sim card as well as some phone shops began to offer the cutting service, but you must take into consideration that it may broke your current sim card.
Therefore I’ve gathered the information for 4 main telcos on the cost of a new nano sim card replacement. Although U Mobile haven’t offer iPhone 5, but they still offer the nano sim card. It’s a good marketing strategy to gain new customer and retain the current customer.
I’ve prepared a few comparison chart to compare the current 3 telecommunication providers’ (Celcom, DiGi and Maxis) Apple iPhone 5 plans as a reference guide for you to choose the affordable and suitable iPhone 5 plan.
If you’ve read my previous post ‘Contracted iPhone 5 – DiGi vs Maxis‘, you probably wonder why I compared the plans by their actual monthly commitment but not what the telco stated, for example iDiGi 138, I compare it together with Maxis iValue 1 but not compare the iDiGi 88 with iValue 1.
But if you compare carefully, you will found that actually their bundle usage are close similar, but the total payment for 24 months commitment + iPhone 5 device price will shock you. I hope by using this new idea to compare will give you a new idea and experience on how to choose a best plan for you.
Finally Celcom has revealed their iPhone 5 plans this evening. Although it’s very late, but still better than reveal it on the day of launching. I believed some of you who had paid RM 200 for pre-ordering it start to feel regret, but actually how Celcom plans are?
