Our local telcos have finally unveiled their iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus device bundle pricing. Both devices starts from RM3,649 and RM4,149 respectively, but if you sign up for a contract under Maxis, Celcom, Digi or U Mobile, you may get the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at a subsidised price.
But how do you pick which plan to subscribe to? Here’s a compilation of the latest contract plans for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus offered by these four major telcos in Malaysia.
As before, the plans are sorted into monthly commitment, so it’s easier to find what you are looking for depending on your monthly budget allocated for mobile plans. You can then see what each telco offers in each plan, and how much the subsidised iPhone 8 costs for that particular plan. A 24-month contract applies for each of those plans, so the total cost of ownership is based on the total monthly commitment you pay over the entire 2-year contract, along with the subsidised price of the device.
Monthly commitment of RM100 and below
Monthly commitment from RM101 to RM150
Monthly commitment from RM151 and above
Upfront or advanced payments are rebated to you over the course of your contract; each telco reimburses the payment back to your account over different durations of time.
But of course, these are based on just numbers. Each telco has different additional perks that might help you make up your mind. For example, on top of a fixed amount of monthly data, U Mobile offers additional data for Music-ONZ, App-ONZ, and Video-ONZ. Maxis on the other hand lets you share your quota with additional numbers for RM48 a month with MaxisONE Share plan. Meanwhile, Celcom offers additional data for social apps and Yonder Music, and Digi offers additional freebies as part of its online exclusive promotion.
