Joining the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 bandwagon is U Mobile as it commences registration of interest online. Interestingly they have mentioned both 4G LTE & 3G models on their Galaxy Note 3 ROI page. Not sure if this was added in by mistake but it is interesting to see how much would the 3G model be since the 4G LTE model with 32GB storage is priced at RM2,399.
In terms of availability, those who have pre-registered will be informed on the collection details from 25th September onwards. If you’re interested to get the Galaxy Note 3 from U Mobile, you may register your interest here.
So far we’ve seen DiGi, Celcom & U Mobile offering the Galaxy Note 3. To sweeten the deal, both Celcom and DiGi will be giving out the accompanying Galaxy Gear smart watch worth RM999 to eligible subscribers. So Maxis, when’s your turn?
One user, multiple devices, that’s pretty much a given nowadays. And those devices are going to need to connect to the internet. Usually people would sniff out free WiFi hotspots or some might tether their devices with a smartphone or a MiFi. Some would even get a dedicated SIM for each device. But as you would imagine, a dedicated SIM for each device is going to be an expensive proposition.
It’s a good thing then that U Mobile came up with a new plan that allows you have up to 3 SIM cards under the one plan. It’s called the Internet Share Plan and for RM68/month you get two SIM cards (additional third card costs RM10), 3GB of data and 60 minutes of talk time to share across the SIM cards.
This is a convenient alternative for users and families who have multiple devices that each require a SIM card but don’t want to foot additional monthly bills — provided that these people are very light data users, because 3GB across three devices is not going to last your very long but on the flipside, you have the flexibility of purchasing more data as and when you need it. Though, at RM10 for 1.5GB for a Booster Plan that will last you only three days, purchasing additional data can get expensive.
More details on the U Mobile Internet Share Plan here.
U Mobile’s Unlimited Mobile Internet prepaid offerings is one of the best value for money offerings in the market. After its UMI 48 package, they have now introduced a new UMI 38 option which offers 500MB of data, 200 minutes of calls and 30 SMS for just RM38/month. This is similar to its earlier UMI 28 offering but with an extra 100 minutes of talk time.
On top of that, U Mobile now offers free data usage for WeChat and KakaoTalk messengers for UMI 28, UMI 38 and UMI 48 subscribers. Not a bad offering for those who use these 2 instant messaging service on a daily basis.

We’re talking about news on the Samsung Galaxy S4, and you can now register your interest to own the device with U Mobile. Of course, a registration of interest doesn’t guarantee you getting a device like a pre-order but its a good start from an operator outside of the big three. It’s also an easy way for operators not to break any terms imposed by Samsung to ensure everything is fair an square among operator come launch day.
Not much detail is being revealed by any operators at the moment but world on the street is saying Samsung is looking to launch the Galaxy S4 next week — with Friday being an obvious choice — but at the moment we can’t confirm this.
Whatever it is, the Galaxy S4 is coming and is going to be real soon, so stay tuned. In the meantime, you can register your interest to own the Samsung Galaxy S4 from U Mobile here.
Thanks for the tip @Crasher7.
