    Celcom monthly rebate is actually calculated into Advanced payment (payment upon Registration), thus your calculation for Celcom plan isn’t accurate.

  2. Vince says:

    hmmm…well…that’s one interesting plan from celcom….LYNians, wat do you all think?

  3. Huei Song says:

    Christopher, But advanced bill payment, according to Celcom, “Advance bill payment will be credited to the first bill”, so I supposed the rebates isn’t related to the advanced payment?

  4. dichoz says:

    abit confusing for celcom.. but iam sticking with celcom again lol… nice bundling the call/sms..

  5. frankie says:

    you’ve deducted rebate twice in the celcom plan.

    eg. prime advance 24mths 32gb.
    [(98*24)-480] monthly – rebate
    2088 discounted device price.
    total ownership over 24mths 1872+2088 = 3960

  6. k2l says:

    are you sure that celcom calculation is correct?????? is even cheaper than digi and it doesnt make sense.

  7. Huei Song says:

    Alright, finally got it. Thanks for the head’s up guys! Working on the changes…NOW!

  8. Sid says:

    celcom’s plan is too good to be true,i recheck the total savings, discounts, rebates, it is still the most worth it plan of all. i even verified with my fellow officemates of the monthly commitment. rebate is rebate, advance bill is advance bill. advance bill payment will be deducted every month on the bill based on our usage. exact dollar of usage if u dont exceed the monthly allocation is still the most worth it plan of all. after i was confident of it, only then i placed my preorder yday. btw guys, u can still preorder at celcomcube capsquare, walk in and book. RM200.this afternoon i checked they still have the stock.

  9. alan says:

    why the celcom Madvance monthly payment is 73-79? the fix package should be minimum 98 right? the rebate is just for the first 10months.

  10. fakhrie says:

    So have you made the correction to the calculations? Is celcom still give the lowest ownership price?
    Whatever it is, thanks so much for putting the comprehensive tabulation. It really help us all to decide.

  11. one23 says:

    so,which one is the best?celcom aite?for rm100 commitment?

  12. sunlim says:

    Where can I get iPhone 5 without any plan?

    1. fadzlie says:

      you can get it without contract with celcom. just purchase a prepaid card (or use yr prepaid account if you already have one), and pay the RRP for the phone eg RM2199 for 16GB

  13. jackson says:

    You missed out Maxis gives
    Extras additional
    Local Calls (Maxis to Maxis) – 1000 mins each ivalue plan &
    Local SMS (Maxis to Maxis) – 800 SMS (i value 1 ) 600 SMS ((ivalue 2 ) 400 SMS ( (i value 3 ) 200 SMS ((i value 4 )

  14. patricia says:

    Maxis have the latest+lowest plan which is iValueSimple which you may add into your comparison as well

  15. gerald says:

    There is iValue 50 missing from the comparison.

  16. basyeerf says:

    Sorry, can you explain more on the free data call, sms, and mms for celcom as the input there is without minutes/no.of sms/no.of mms. Does that mean for example: celcom prime= 267mins,267 sms and 267 mms? Thanks

  17. Fakhrie says:

    Just got my iPhone 5 from Celcom at 00.00 hour on 14 Dec, they have the lowest price for 4GB data. Just walk-in at Blue Cube Capsquare, KL.

  18. Rashid says:

    The previous plan 4s and bb is better . With 0.10 sen for all network . Sms 0.10 sen and got free minut , data 5 GB and monthly rm 148 !!!! Just buy phone and used it. Huhuhu

  19. nickgt says:

    iphone 5 battery can last how long let

  20. Lancefire says:

    I thought Maxis stopped charging for exceeded data usage and instead throttle speed since 3rd Dec 2012.

    1. majinity says:

      Are you sure that “No extra charges when exceed quota” applied to iValue plans as well? From my understanding it only applies to Mobile Internet users only?

    2. majinity says:

      I thought it only applies to Mobile Internet users only? Does this apply to iValue as well?

  21. Huei Song says:

    Lancefire, Yup you’re right, there will be no extra charges. Thanks for notifying!

  22. Nhh says:

    Which one is better, iphone5 with contract or unlocked? Any pro and cons 4 both? Where i can get unlocked ipone 5? Tq 4 info

  23. shana says:

    i just visited celcom blue cube today and the salesperson told me that there’s rm150 upfront payment, and there’s no more m230 rebate over 10 months (which means the monthly commitment would be rm98 innstead of the rm73-79 for the celcom prime plan 16g after monthly rebate), is that the true case?

  24. Nhh says:

    Which one is better, ip5 with contract or not( outright)? Any pro and cons 4 both? Tq 4 info

  25. ashkoy says:

    this is confusing. for me, just get from which telco that you like.
    but still, can anyone suggest which one is offering the best deal?

  26. oscarcomp says:

    idigi 88 – 2GB Data
    idigi 138 – 5GB Data
    idigi 238 – 7GB Data

  27. Steven says:

    Woah. That’s ALOT to crunch through, especially when all telcos have so many brochures and hidden T&Cs. Not in the market for an iPhone, but good job! 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to do this.

  28. Gina says:
