Now that DiGi has introduced brand new DG SmartPlan postpaid plans that are all equipped with 4G LTE connectivity (finally), it looks like you will be able to sign up for a device bundle for those plans as well. The telco has recently updated its device bundle page, offering devices from Samsung, Sony, Motorola and more that are tied to the new DG SmartPlan 50/78/108/148 postpaid plans.
Just a little refresher, the new postpaid plans are now more affordable, starting from only RM50 a month and if you’re a heavy user, you can opt to have up to 6GB of data every month (SmartPlan 148).
The new SmartPlan options are only applicable for devices offered by DiGi that are tied to a 12- or 24-month contract Motorola Moto G, Alcatel One Touch Scribe Easy, Huawei Ascend G510, Samsung Galaxy Note III, Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro, Samsung Galaxy S4 (non-LTE), Sony Xperia C, Sony Xperia Z Ultra (LTE), and Sony Xperia Z1. The breakdowns of the prices are as follows:
It’s quite strange how DiGi is doing things this time round, while SmartPlan 50 looks very attractive with 2GB free for you to use (not split into mobile internet and smart apps quota), it’s very strange because the device bundles offered for this plan ties users down to a 12 months contract but is offering them at retail price, i.e. the Samsung Galaxy Note III is retailing at RM2,399 and if you sign up for a 1 year contract with DiGi under SmartPlan 50, you will need to pay RM2,399 plus an advance payment of RM50 – that’s more expensive than heading to a Samsung store to buy the Note III off the shelf.
In addition to that, not all devices offered by DiGi come with the new SmartPlan plans, some of them that are not tied to a contract are still under the old SmartPlan (SmartPlan 58/88) but hey, there’s no contract so you can sign up for those and change your plans anytime you want.
