As announced earlier, Facebook Zero offers free access on selected Telcos and DiGi is the first to offer such feature in Malaysia. Simple enough, accessing via 0.facebook.com offers free access on your mobile phone.
However the truth is that it may not be necessary free to some users. There are some users who complained that they got charged for accessing Facebook Zero. DiGi finally explained that Facebook Zero is free only if you got the right APN in use.
They have revised their Facebook Zero promo page with a warning that Facebook Zero is free if you are using digiwap as APN. Here’s the thing we dislike, how many users out there are aware of what APN they are using? Plus most newer smartphones may not have a dedicated WAP browser but instead rely on diginet for web browsing.
So DiGi users beware! If you want free access, make sure your phone’s browser runs on digiwap, else you’ll be hitting the max RM5 per day data charge for prepaid.

Update: Facebook Zero might be chargable if you have different settings. Read all about it here.
DiGi Facebook Zero is officially launched by DiGi today. As mentioned in the previous post, DiGi users can access Facebook for Free via 0.facebook.com.
You’ll notice at the top that there’s a header “Free Access by DiGi”. This is perfect for those without any data plan to stay connected to Facebook absolutely free. Of course, you won’t get any images as normally shown on m.facebook.com.
Not groundbreaking but yet it is a commendable feature from DiGi to be the first telco in Malaysia to offer such free feature.
Check it out on your mobile at 0.facebook.com for DiGi customers.
