Right before the new iPhone is revealed, DiGi is throwing extra discounts for its iPhone 4 bundling. Now they have reduced the monthly subscription by another RM10/month. With a 24 months contract, this is an extra RM240 worth of savings.
So this means, the iDiGi 88 is offered at RM43/month, iDiGi 138 at RM73/month and iDiGi 238 at RM143/month. Monthly subscription mentioned is after RM5 rebate for signing up with DiGi’s auto-billing. The last reduction was 2 months ago when they slashed RM5 off from its iDiGi subscription fees.

DiGi has revealed that their already affordable iPhone 4 plans are even more affordable. Now their plans are additional RM5 cheaper as compared to launch. This makes its entry iDiGi 88 costing RM58/month without auto-billing and RM53/month with auto-billing.
For those who are extremely tight, DiGi also offers 36 months installment plan which we wouldn’t recommend especially when a new iPhone is on its way.
For more information, head to DiGi’s iPhone 4 page.
Head after the break for the full plans before and after 1st July 2011.
DiGi has finally started to offer the white iPhone 4, after Maxis and Celcom started theirs much earlier. A while back, DiGi was the first to indicate that they are bringing in the iPhone 4 but turns out that they are late for the party. Well like the saying goes, better late than never.
For those who wanted lower commitment and easier to own payment plans with up to 36 months 0% interest installment, DiGi might be something worth considering. If you’re interested, you might want to catch their roadshow at KLCC Centre area from today 11th until 14th June.
More information at DiGi’s iPhone 4 page.
With the rebate, the effective price for the 16GB iPhone 4 will be RM1,890 and the 32GB iPhone 4 will be RM2,290, both with 24 months DiGi contract. Only the black iPhone 4 is on offer. Despite the first to announce that it will make the white iPhone 4 available in Malaysia, customers are still not able to purchase the device from DiGi.
The offer is valid from today to May 16 and DiGi says the full rebate amount will be credited into your first or second month’s bill, depending on your billing cycle. Also DiGi says the RM200 credit rebate will not expire. So if you don’t use up the full amount this month, it will be carried forward to the next and the month after that until all the rebate amount is used up.
All this iPhone 4 price dropping is making us suspicious. Did Steve Jobs really clued us in on the iPhone 5 coming in June? We can only hope.
In any case, we’re asking DiGi this. What happened to your white iPhone 4 la?

Those longing for the White iPhone 4, your prayers have finally been answered. DiGi is starting its Registration of Interest for the Whilte iPhone 4 which everybody has been waiting for ages.
If you’re one of those iPhone 4 hopefuls that wish to stand out from the crowd, the white iPhone 4 is something worth considering. No dates or pricing details were mentioned as usual but we believe it should be offered at the same price as its Black iPhone 4 models.
If you’re interested, sign up for Registration of Interest here.
Basically DiGi now offers all new iDiGi subscribers to buy a 2nd iPhone 4 unit without contract from RM2290. In case you didn’t notice, RM2290 is actually the outright iPhone 4 price without any subsidies at all. This of course is nothing compelling as its previous iPhone 4 offer for existing iDiGi subscribers offered better pricing. During that time, they offered the iPhone 4 with RM300 off the normal price, making the 16GB version RM1990 after discount.
This offer is only valid until 31st March.
UPDATE (03082011): DiGi reveals offer for 2nd unit of iPhone 4 without contract.
UPDATE (07032011): DiGi posted teaser graphic on their Facebook Wall.
So what can it be? First thing on top of our minds is the iPad 2. Launching it on 8th March is impossible as Apple is only releasing it on 11th March 2011. If it is indeed the iPad 2, it might be an announcement that they are bringing in the iPad 2 for bundling in Malaysia which normally includes the typical Registration of Interest exercise.
Another possibility is that DiGi is doing another promo for the iPhone 4. Special price for 2 units of iPhone 4? It might be considering DiGi had similar teaser for iPhone 4 launch last September. That time they used 4 apples to represent iPhone 4.
Could it be a hoax altogether? Your guess is as good as ours.

It’s a week into the iPhone 4 launch in Malaysia and you’re Still undecided on which telco to go to to get your iPhone 4? Well, maybe this can help you. It’s a calculator that compares both the Maxis and DiGi iPhone 4 plans based on your mobile usage.
The creators of the iPhone 4 Maxis/DiGi calculator claims that it will “help you get a clearer idea of the actual cost” of owning an iPhone 4 based on your mobile usage. All you need to do is key in your estimated monthly mobile usage and the calculator will draw up “a chart for you to analyze and compare Maxis & DiGi’s iPhone plans“.
We can’t vouch for the accuracy of this calculator but it’s fun to play around with the numbers. And if you still haven decided on which telco to go with yet, well, you’ve waited this long so might as well wait a bit longer. There will promotions coming to sustain the iPhone 4 buzz from both telcos. So if you wait for the right moment, you might be able to get a very good deal in an iPhone 4. Maybe even an outright, no contract purchase. Who knows.
Here’s a link to the calculator, oddly enough, it’s a on a pet listing website of all places.
Thanks commenter John for the tip.

It’s an interesting offer which many value hunting Malaysians will take up. DiGi has put up a Facebook gallery of the phones that were traded in yesterday at Quill 9 and although some may see them a spieces of junk, we see the gallery as a treasure trove of devices from simpler days, days when you get blazing speeds with GPRS speeds of up to 114kbps and Bluetooth was a foreign concept to many, days when keypads where the input method of choice and touchscreens were high-end stuff.
Some of these phones broke new ground while others were experiments in innovation gone wrong, some brands have withered and die while the leaders of those days are now struggling to compete with the Android and iPhone devices of today but whatever it is, all of these phone has had some part to play in shaping the mobile scene today.
Take a look at the gallery on DiGi’s Facebook page and tell us if it made you smile and go, “oh man! I remember that phone” or “hey, I used to have that phone!“. We did.
Thanks for putting up the pictures DiGi. Hope you put more up.
(Update 25092010 2246hrs) Looks like DiGi made a booboo in its Twitter feed. It’s facebook wall says 4000 numbers we’re given out. If they achieved that in half a day, that’s an impressive number.
This tweet from DiGi doesn’t look encouraging if you’re looking to purchase the iPhone 4 from them. Just after lunch time on their first Saturday selling the iPhone 4, and it appears DiGi has ran out of stock for the day. Interestingly, the Quill 9 collection point closes at 2200hrs, so why stop giving out queue numbers so early?
The marketeers mantra is to never stop selling what the customer wants and you don’t need to be genius to know that the iPhone 4 is currently on the wish list of a lot of people so why has DiGi stopped giving out queue numbers at the half day point — only 400 numbers?
On the other side, Maxis’ iPhone 4 collection point at the Gardens is bustling and can comfortably handle over 400 customers. We were at the midnight launch and even at that point in time there was easily more than 400 customers, on a weekday mind you.
Could it be that DiGi is selling in more places and in more states than Maxis? 45 outlets from 24 September versus Maxis’ only iPhone 4 collection centre at the Gardens. Even when Maxis starts selling the iPhone nationwide on Monday 27 September, they would have only 27 outlets across Malaysia selling the iPhone 4 as opposed to DiGi’s 45.
More outlets could mean stocks of the iPhone 4 is spread thin but could that be the real reason DiGi is only giving our 400 queue numbers at Quill 9? We don’t think so.
We’re speculating that it is very possible that DiGi has less iPhone 4 stock than Maxis. Quill 9, for this weekend at least, is the iPhone 4 central for DiGi. Most of their iPhone 4 promotion materials point customers to go to Quill 9 to get the iPhone 4 from DiGi. Based on this, Quill 9 should have the most iPhone 4 stocks. In fact DiGi shouldn’t stop giving out numbers at Quill 9 but they did and that could only mean that stocks are low. Why else would they deny customers from getting the iPhone 4 on the spot?
We’re putting out this question to DiGi PR. Hope their reply is more forthcoming than @DiGi_Telco, we seem to have no luck with the official Twitter account.
