Who could say no to free internet, especially when it’s for usage when you’re in a different country? U Mobile has been offering free internet roaming with its postpaid plans for a while now, and they have just extended it to prepaid users as well. Just top up a minimum of RM50, and you will automatically get free internet roaming for 30 days. The catch? It’s limited.
U Mobile and Oppo Malaysia recently announced their collaboration to offer some of the latest devices from Oppo Malaysia, together with a postpaid or prepaid plan from U Mobile. With this partnership, this means that U Mobile is now the first telco in Malaysia to offer devices from Oppo Mobile Malaysia.
Now that all big four telcos in Malaysia have unveiled their Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pricing, let’s take a look at what all of them have got to offer. Maxis is offering the device from as low as RM1,699, Celcom from RM988, DiGi from RM1,169 and U Mobile from RM1,099, but there are a lot more to the bundles than the final price of the device.
You didn’t think that we would forget about U Mobile, did you? U Mobile is also offering the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 from as low as RM1,099. But wait, the telco has got more to give its customers like a trade-in offer, 0% easy payment plan, no upfront payment, and loyalty rebates.
We all know that U Mobile has a vision to acquire 2,000,000 new customers by the end of this year, the telco is already offering attractive deals for new customers like free internet and it looks like things has just gotten a lot better. The telco is now offering free unlimited streaming on YouTube and Tonton but wait, there’s a catch of course.
I guess it’s pretty obvious that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be launched in Malaysia this month, but if you are looking for a cheaper price to own the latest phablet from the company, you can add U Mobile to your list of options. U Mobile has just teased the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, saying that it’ll be “coming soon”.
The Sony Xperia C3 is now available in Malaysia for a retail price of RM999 but if you do not wish to pay full price for this selfie smartphone from Sony, you can get it from as low as RM366 from U Mobile. If you qualify, U Mobile will even waive the upfront payment so you’ll only need to pay RM366 and you can walk away with the device.
After announcing its 3G and LTE expansion plan last week, it turns out that U Mobile is not going to just stop there. The company announced earlier today that it has planned yet another initiative that actually has a very ambitious objective: to obtain two million new customers by 31 December 2014.
[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.
