If you’re getting an iPhone 6s outright without contract, SenQ wants to make the switch easier. They have just announced a trade-up program where you can trade-in your existing iPhone to get as much as RM900 off on your next device.
Last week Samsung announced their new trade in program in conjunction with Brightstar that lets you trade in your older and otherwise unwanted phones up for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. But after a deluge of negative feedback about their paltry trade in program, they’ve revised the pricing to be a little bit more reasonable.
UPDATE: The Galaxy S6 trade up values have been increased. iPhone 4 now accepted for RM300 instead of RM100.
Want to own the Galaxy S6 or S6 edge but don’t know what to do with your current phone? To make it easier for you to make the switch, Samsung has announced a trade-up program in partnership with Brightstar Distribution.
You can get up to RM1,000 off on your Galaxy S6 purchase depending on your current phone’s valuation at participating Samsung Outlets. Of course, your existing device must be in working condition with no visible damage to the screen, buttons and body.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 officially goes on sale in Malaysia starting today. Among the four telcos, U Mobile wants to make it easier for you to switch to a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Not only it offers 3 plans where you can get one from as low as RM1,099, they are also offering trade-ins making it possible to get one without forking extra money.
On top of that, they are also partnering with Citibank where you get to enjoy zero advance payment and an extra RM200 off from the Galaxy Note 4 bundled price.

Want to own a Samsung Galaxy S5 (Buy Now), Maxis is making it easier for you to make the jump. Originally priced at RM2,399, the Galaxy S5 is now cheaper outright at RM2,149. For those who prefer to get it on contract, Maxis is giving you an extra RM300 off and now they are accepting trade-ins of your existing phone.
Like its recent smart phone offering, the Galaxy S5 is bundled with MaxisOne Plan that offers limitless talk and SMS. Depending on what smart phones you’re currently using, Maxis is offering up to RM1,000 in value (iPhone 5) and the Galaxy S5 can be yours for just RM199 (with 24 months contract).
If you’re still contemplating to switch to a brand new Galaxy S5, Samsung Malaysia is giving additional RM200 off when you trade-in your existing phone at participating Samsung authorised dealers. The RM200 discount is given on top of the value of your phone. So this means if you bring a device that’s worth RM500, you get a total of RM700 off your new Galaxy S5 purchase after trade-in. The offer is valid for one device per customer and you are not allowed to bring in multiple device to gain additional discount. The value of your device will be determined by the dealer on the spot.
U Mobile too is also offering an extra RM200 off where the Galaxy S5 can be yours from as low as RM355 with its Standard Chartered credit card promo. They could be riding on the same deal as both U Mobile and Samsung Malaysia are having this trade-in promo until 31st May.

U Mobile currently has the best device deal with the Galaxy S5 being offered as low as RM555. What’s more appealing is you don’t need to place a hefty upfront payment if you sign up with auto-billing on their U88 and UPlus plans. Now the deal is even sweeter if you have an old phone lying around as U Mobile is giving additional RM200 off for phone trade-ins. They didn’t mention specific trade-in models and it appears to be open to any device with a valid IMEI number.
The Galaxy S5 is offered on its U58, U88 and UPlus plans at RM1,699, RM1,499 and RM999 respectively with 24 months contract. The RM555 price is eligible for those who sign up together with a new Standard Chartered JustOne Platinum credit card on UPlus Plan. With the RM200 trade-in offer, this will make it effectively RM1,499 on U58, RM1,299 on U88 and RM799 on UPlus. With the Standard Chartered offer, that’s RM355 with the extra trade-in discount. You can check out the full plan details here.
If you plan to get a Galaxy S5 on U Mobile, it is time to dig around for that unused phone to redeem extra RM200 off. Note that the trade-in offer is valid until 31st May. Visit U Mobile’s Galaxy S5 page for more info.
If your current smart phone is holding you back from getting a new iPhone 5S, Maxis has an easier way to switch. Now they are offering a trade-in and trade-up program which lets you swap your current Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S III, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S for the latest iPhone 5S on contract.
As comparison, normally the iPhone 5S is offered at RM1,599 with 24 months contract of iValue 1. If you bring in your Galaxy Note II or iPhone 4S, the iPhone 5S can be yours at RM849, which effectively is RM700 trade-in value. For the Galaxy S III and iPhone 4, that’s equivalent of RM500 trade-in value.
The trade-in program is available nationwide at Maxis Outlets and Exclusive Partners. All you need to do is bring your device even without the box, chargers or cables.
For more information, head over to Maxis or you can check out the full trade-in list after the break.
Update: We’ve just got an update from @chairilhafizz via Twitter who has a friend at Low Yat PLaza. Apparently Samsung is offering a rebate for up to RM900 when you trade up to the Galaxy Note 3 from a Note II and the offer is limited to 50 units per day.
Samsung Malaysia is organising a Galaxy Note 3 trade up program at Low Yat Plaza this week. If you own a Galaxy Note II then you can trade it up for a Galaxy Note III at the event. Details about the event is scarce and Galaxy Note 3 available for the trade up offer is limited so your best bet is to head over to Low Yat Plaza yourself. The event is happening at Low Yat Plaza Centre Court from October 21 to 27. If you happen to be there, hit us up on Twitter with the latest updates. We’ll be more than happy to share them here.
In the meantime, here’s our Galaxy Note 3 unboxing video.

How do you convince reluctant people to switch phones? Trading up their existing device for a new one seems to be an easier option. Now Brightstar is offering a Trade Up program which aims to drive up ownership of the BlackBerry Z10 smart phone. The trade up value is quite attractive and depending on model, your phone could fetch as high as RM1,800. Strangely, the trade value of your device also depends on the Z10 model that you’ll pick. If you opt for the Z10 LTE version, you will get a slightly higher value.
Some of the smart phone trade up value are listed as follows:
iPhone 4 8GB – RM1,065 (Z10 3G), RM1,084 (Z10 LTE)
iPhone 4 16GB – RM1,080 (Z10 3G), RM1,099 (Z10 LTE)
iPhone 4S 16GB – RM1,304 (Z10 3G), RM1,323 (Z10 LTE)
iPhone 5 16GB – RM1,668 (Z10 3G), RM1,687 (Z10 LTE)
BlackBerry Bold 9900 – RM934 (Z10 3G), RM953 (Z10 LTE)
BlackBerry Q10 – RM1,227 (Z10 3G), RM1,246 (Z10 LTE)
BlackBerry Z10 3G – RM983 (Z10 3G), RM1,002 (Z10 LTE)
Samsung Galaxy S III 16GB – RM1,169 (Z10 3G), RM1,188 (Z10 LTE)
Samsung Galaxy S4 16GB – RM1,585 (Z10 3G), RM1,604 (Z10 LTE)
Samsung Galaxy Note II – RM1,434 (Z10 3G), RM1,453 (Z10 LTE)
Of course, it is subject to the condition of the device as well. If you look at the list above, it is funny to see that Brightstar has also included their latest BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 into the trade up list. On top of that, even its more expensive Q10 is listed with a lower value than the older Galaxy Note II and iPhone 4S.
If you’re interested to switch to a BlackBerry Z10 with this trade up program, just visit one of Brightstar’s participating dealers and they will evaluate your current phone to determine the balance price you need to pay for a new Z10. The current BlackBerry Z10 retail price is listed as RM1,799 for the 3G version and RM1,899 for the 4G LTE version.
