U Mobile’s running a limited time promo from 1 February to 31 March 2009.
The Talk All Day, All Night promo offers up to 60min of free calls per day from the hours of 7am to 7pm daily and SMS cost 1sen in this period. Calls made after that (during 7pm to 7am) gets a 50% discount and cost 0.4sen/sec (normal price 0.8sen/sec). SMS cost 4sen.
After the 60min are up, calls are charged 0.8sen/sec. For calls to other networks, it appears there’s no change in the rates.
Free calls only apply for calls made within the U Mobile network.
The free 60mins and the 50% discount off calls (all made on-net) is the only big deal for this promo. The website mentions free starter pack but we’re not sure if this promo is exclusive for it’s prepaid customers or whether it includes post-paid subscribers as well.
One question we’d ask is whether the 50% discount for calls made between 7pm to 7am is also limited to the first 60min.
Look at table closely, there seems to be a major error on the pricing table. Third left most column states “Video Calls” when it should actually read “SMS”. On the same note, the right most column should display the off-net SMS charge. Also, be weary of the asterix (*) next to “FREE”. It claims usage charges apply. We don’t know what that means.
Our advice, approach with caution. Better still, don’t approach at all. From our experience, U Mobile is still lacking way behind all the other operators in terms of service and content. 3G coverage outside Kalng Valley is patchy at best and customer service is also poor.
