Maxis is having a big price reduction on the iPhone 3GS 8GB. Now it can be yours as low as RM199 on a new i3GS plan which has a monthly commitment fee of RM79/month. There’s only 1 contract duration option of 24 months.
However there’s a few things to take note. the i3GS plan offers 200 minutes which is restricted for Maxis to Maxis calls. This means calls to other networks are charged as extra. Also included is 250MB of data which after exceeding is charged at 5 sen per 10KB. If you plan to take up this RM199 offer on i3GS plan, there’s a RM840 upfront payment required which will be rebated back over 12 months.
If you’re a heavy user which usage more than 250MB, an extra RM21 for iValue 1 will give you 1GB of data and 333 call minutes which can be used to call all networks. However the iPhone 3GS 8GB costs RM800 on 24 months contract on iValue 1. So looks like you gotta pick between cheaper phone price with lower “value” plan or higher value plan with pricier phone.
