Maxis Announces Affordable Mobile Internet Plan at only RM1/Day with Opera Mini

    A warning to those who plan to subscribe to the RM1 Opera Mini since this happened to me way too often:
    (1) Make sure to wait for at least 5-10 minutes before surfing via Opera Mini. Even after arriving at the ‘success’ page after subscribing, this info will not be updated in Maxis’ system and they’ll treat you as if you’re surfing without subscribing to an internet plan. This resulted in the deduction of an unholy amount of credit
    (2) Make sure to DISABLE SYNC. Opera Mini is for Opera Mini only. If your phone has twitter, instagram, tumblr and the likes, your phone would most likely auto sync these apps so that you’ll get the latest updates one who tweeted you, who reblogged your post and such (these updates require transfer of data).
    Opera Mini internet plan does not include the updates from such apps. If you do not disable the automated sync, then be ready for Maxis to deduct RM10 from your credit. They will defend themselves by saying why we did not disable the sync before subscribing when the T&C clearly states the Opera Mini Internet Plan is just for Opera Mini. They will say it is our responsibility to make sure we read the T&C and make sure the auto sync is disabled. This in turn, means it has the right to charge you for all the transfer of data that resulted from you forgetting to disable the sync.
