Exposed: The Misleading Don’t Bodoh Campaign Is Nothing More Than A Fraud

by Chief Chapree · 6 days ago · 22 Comments · 10.5k views

Don't Bodoh

Claiming itself as an “independent entity that is not linked to any telco companies“, Don’t Bodoh looks like a nifty, professionally-done website that apparently allows users to “compare” telco plans and determine which one is most suitable to them. As we dug deeper in our effort to learn more about this particularly secretive “independent entity”, we learned that Don’t Bodoh is misleading users into believing that the site is actually giving sound advice to them.

In fact, Don’t Bodoh can be considered as a fraud depending on how you look at things.

[Update] The Complete List of Postpaid Voice Plans in Malaysia and What they Offer – Celcom, Maxis, DiGi and U Mobile

Postpaid Telcos in Malaysia

[Update 26/12/2014]: We’ve added Celcom’s new postpaid plans with Optimiser to the list.

[Update 21/8/2014]: Since that quite a lot has changed over the past few months since posting this article, here’s an update to reflect all those changes. Maxis has removed most of its older postpaid plans and replaced them with an all new MaxisONE Plans that gives “limitless” calls and SMS from as low as RM78 a month. Celcom also renamed its data plans to the Celcom First One for those who complained about how the MaxisONE plans have too little data. Finally, DiGi added new iDiGi plans that are streamlined with its existing Smart Plan postpaid plans.

Just a little reminder, none of these plans is tied to any contract. Contract only applies for phone bundles, or when the telco gives you an extra discount for signing up for a contract. Otherwise, you will be free to change your plans anytime you want.

Hit the break to check out the changes.
