Snatch thefts are a serious problem in our country and smart phones are often an easy target. As it sucks big time to have your precious gadgets stolen, DiGi is taking matters to its own hands by introducing is very own UndrCovr. They claim that this is a beautiful, reliable, and professionally-designed solution to keep your smart phones safe from prying eyes.
We don’t want to spoil all the fun, so watch the video after the break.
DiGi‘s got a new network and it’s so confident with this new network that it is offering you a full refund on your advance payment within 7 days of you signing-up if you’re not happy with its network. But of course, with offers as good as this there are bound to be strings attached.
Firstly, this is applicable to new subscribers only. For those of you who’ve been with DiGi for years, this is not for you.
Secondly, this offer is only for SIM only subscriptions, if you’re on a contract, you’ll probably still have to pay the early termination fee if you want out.
Thirdly, the money back offer is only for when new subscribers choose the DiGi SmartPlan 50 or SmartPlan 78, and if you want to make use of this offer, there is only a handful of DiGi Stores that are offering it — they are in The Gardens, Sunway Pyramid, PJ SS2, BBT One Tower in Klang and Bangsar Shopping Centre (if you’re wondering, the DiGi Store Express store in IOI Mall is not one of them).
On top of that, you might want to read the following “notes” from DiGi with regards to the offer:
Only applicable to new registrations of SIM only plans – i.e. DG SmartPlan™ 50 and DG SmartPlan™ 78.
Refunds are only provided upon subscription termination within the first seven (7) days.
Credit limit within the seven (7) day period will be reduced to RM50 and will be adjusted to its default credit limit thereafter.
The money back guarantee is not applicable to port-in customers.
The money back guarantee is not valid in the following instances:
Subscriber has made IDD or International Roaming calls within seven (7) days.
Subscriber requests to port out in less than seven (7) days.
The money back guarantee is a nice gesture from DiGi but looking at the terms and conditions, we can’t help but feel that the intention is much less sincere.

This happened a few days ago at a DiGi Store Express at IOI Mall. A customer had made payment at the centre a day before but his payment wasn’t reflected on their system. When he approached the staff the next day for a solution, all he got was further frustration.
As the camera started rolling, the situation starts to get ugly. The male staff appears to have started explaining about waiver and when he noticed that he’s being caught on video, he immediately snapped back why is he being recorded. This was followed by another female staff shouting back rudely “customer besar ke?”
DiGi has been revamping its network for the longest time. It was an ambitious project that aims to build what they call, the Tomorrow Network. With several years in the making, it was as if tomorrow would never come.
Finally it looks like the wait is over, as DiGi claims that their all new network is ready to deliver its consistent internet promise. To date they have upgraded over 6,300 sites which offers 82% 3G coverage with HSPA+ and they aim to bring this up to 86% by end of 2014. For 4G LTE, they have expanded their coverage across the Klang Valley, Johor Bahru, Kampar and Kota Kinabalu. By year end, DiGi says they will have at least 1,500 sites delivering 4G LTE connectivity.
DiGi has just released a video explaining their progress and what they plan to do to deliver the best internet experience. Head after the break to watch it.
Malaysia will be celebrating its 57th Merdeka Day (Independence Day) on 31st of August. Being Malaysians, we not only love our food but we also have a closely knit community where we call each other like family.
DiGi and Maxis had just released their Merdeka videos and they are surprisingly similar. Not sure if they shared same script or simply great minds think alike. Watch them after the break.
During sign up, you would need to pay a month subscription plus RM408 as advance payment which will be rebated back to your monthly bills. However if you are an active DiGi subscriber for the past 12 months, they will waive off the advance payment.

UPDATE: According to DiGi, they have gotten in touch with the Uncle’s family.
In the past 24 hours, the social-sphere was abuzz with the #CDM25 road rage incident involving a young lady and an elderly uncle. Even though he was threaten with a steering lock, he remained cool throughout the scene captured on video.
In light of the intense situation, DiGi is making a positive move by offering to repair for damages on the Uncle’s car. If the actual accident victim had mellowed down, they are also offering to fix her car as well. One of the commenters had tipped DiGi the uncle’s son details and hopefully there is a follow up on this soon. Stay alert while driving guys! And most importantly keep cool and drive safe.

DiGi was the first telco in Malaysia to offer the Xiaomi Mi 3 on both postpaid and prepaid bundles. When the Mi 3 was launched locally, it went on sale at RM889. Just recently Xiaomi had reduced the price of its hot-selling smart phone to RM769.
It is understood there are cusomters who have ordered their Mi 3 through DiGi and have yet to receive their device. Some are getting irate to find their new purchase had just dropped in price even before receiving them. To address this issue, the folks at DiGi had sent an email to its Mi 3 buyers that they will be offering additional RM110 rebate which will go into their 2nd bill. So far there’s no word on its stock delivery but DiGi assures that they are working hard to get it delivered soon.
UPDATE: According to DiGi, the device will be shipped on 30th June, which is 3 days after its original shipment date.
