Update: Full details on the Celcom iPhone 4 plans now available on Celcom’s website. Just click on the “packages” tab.
Ok everyone, here it is, the individual (as opposed to the enterprise) plans for the iPhone 4 from Celcom and from the looks of it, not much has changed since Celcom first introduced its Biz enterprise plans for the iPhone 4 about two weeks back. In fact everything looks exactly the same, the monthly commitments, the bundled minutes subsidised device pricing are all similar to the Celcom iPhone 4 Biz plan.
What is new with the Celcom iPhone 4 plans for individuals is the that you get to purchase the white iPhone 4. On top of that, you get an extended warranty and insurance coverage for your device from Celcom.
Basically what it is is an additional 12-months warranty on top of the standard Apple 12 months warranty this applies for all the Celcom Exec plans with 24-months contract.
The interesting addition to this warranty is that Celcom is offering a a free 12-months insurance coverage for your device. The insurance covers theft, accidental breakage and fluid damage. This insurance coverage is offered on to the Celcom Exec i248 plan on either 12 and 24 months contract.
We spotted this teaser ad in the Star today and it looks like Celcom will be launching their consumer iPhone 4 plans tomorrow. We’re not sure how it will differ from the enterprise iPhone 4 plans launched earlier but we’ll stay on top of the news as it happens.
Thanks @adameben for the tip!
While Celcom has officially started to offer iPhone 4 yesterday, they have sent emails to those who earlier registered their interest for the iPhone 4. The problem though, is they sent not 1 or 2 but up to 7 emails to their prospects. Not only it is annoying like spam but their links is invalid upon clicking.
What you’ll get is a private promotion page above with the message that your link is invalid. Looks like they have left out the unique ID code for the promotion in their email. We guess that they will be sending another email shortly with the correct link but we hope they really get their emails done right this time.
The email blunder aside, it seems that Celcom is giving a special promo for those who registered their interest for the iPhone 4. If you sign up by 28th April 2011, they are giving additional iPhone 4 accessories worth RM100 and with priority lane access during the phone collection. Not a bad offer for early birds that registered.
From the official plans, the earlier device pricing were actually for 24 months contract. Now it is also revealed that Celcom is also offering the device for 12 months period as well. This makes Celcom and Maxis both offering 12 and 24 month plans while DiGi only with 24 months option. The 3 plans for bundling contract are known as Celcom Biz Pi 98, Biz Pi 148 and Biz Pi 248 which are business oriented plans.
UPDATE: Other notable points from the offer includes:
Head after the break for clearer Celcom’s iPhone 4 pricing and plan details.

An anonymous tipster revealed what he/she claims to be the details for the Celcom iPhone 4 plans. Although we can’t confirm whether this is the real deal or not, we still thought that it’s worth sharing.
Thank you anonymous tipster, whoever you are.
We’ve gotten information that Celcom will be launching their iPhone 4 plans this Friday (April 22) and have started sending exclusive invites to presumably those who have registered their interest on Celcom’s official website.
From the invite we can also see that Celcom will be offering new, or more likely, revised plans for some of the current devices that the operator has to offer.
From the invite the following devices are on offer:
From left: BlackBerry Bold 9700, LG Optimus 2X, iPhone 4, an unidentified BlackBerry and a 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The copy within the invite also suggests that Celcom will be showcasing a new technology — we wonder what that is.
In addition to the invitation an anonymous source have revealed what is claimed to be the finalised plans for the iPhone 4 with Celcom.
There are are a total of three plans to choose from starting from RM98 monthly to RM248 monthly.
In terms of the device, Celcom will be offering the iPhone 4 for as low as RM248 for the 16GB version and RM538 for the 32GB version. If you’re wondering, no, the white iPhone 4 won’t be making a debut this Friday.
All plans offer up to 6,000 minutes of free on-net talk time and up to 500 minutes of free off-net minutes on top of the bundled data which range from 2GB to 4GB per month. In addition, you get bundled SMS and MMS as well.
As with all Celcom contract plans, there will be up front payment required. This range from RM420 to RM1,200 depending on the plan that you subscriber to.
This plan is yet to be confirmed. More to come.

Update: Unofficial details of Celcom iPhone 4 plans here.
Whoa. Its like we went back into time to September 2010 when the iPhone 4 was all the rage.
Celcom’s registration of interest for the iPhone 4 has just gone live for those of you who are still thinking of getting an iPhone 4 but are still holding out hoping to strike a good deal.
And that’s precisely what we’re expecting from Celcom — a damn good deal. With most, if not all, who want to get an iPhone 4 probably have gotten it already, it’s going to be slim pickings for Celcom when it comes to prospective iPhone 4 customers. Let’s hope they have a pleasant surprise for us all.
Hit up the source link if you’d like to register your interest for the iPhone 4 with Celcom.

CELCOM TO LAUNCH iPHONE 4
KUALA LUMPUR, 22 MARCH 2011 – Celcom will launch iPhone 4 in Malaysia in the coming months. iPhone 4 is the most innovative phone in the world, featuring Apple’s stunning Retina display, the highest resolution display ever built into a phone and FaceTime, which makes video calling a reality. For more information on iPhone 4 please visit www.apple.com/iphone.
While the rest of the world is getting ready for the iPhone 5 to make its debut very likely in June, we have to question Celcom’s judgement and foresight making this announcement.
Unless they have a really good deal up their sleeves, there’s really not much of an appeal for prospective iPhone buyers to head to Celcom for an iPhone 4.
Most, if not all, who want to get an iPhone 4 would probably have gotten it already and we’re pretty sure that those who are saving up for an iPhone would probably wait for the iPhone 5 to come.
So barring a ridiculously good offer from the telco, would you get an iPhone 4 on contract from Celcom?
