Maxis iPhone 3G S has been launched for couple of weeks already and they had been hit with apparent stock shortages. Those interested to get their iPhone 3G S had to place a pre-booking fee of RM200 at any iPhone 3G S roadshows at various malls nationwide. Strangely you can’t pre-book your iPhone 3G S at any dealers and even official Maxis outlets. According to sources, those who pre-book shall get their iPhone 3G S within 2 weeks or latest by end of this month.
Currently the most desirable package in our opinion would be the RM99/month 3GB iData Plan which lets you buy the iPhone 3G S 16GB from as low as RM1690.
Since iValue Plans had been perceived to be less value to those who enjoyed commitment based Value Plus plans, Maxis had made some revision. Now the iValue Plans come with FREE SMS and MMS with its packages. iValue 1 Plan of RM100/month comes with 100 Free SMS and 10 Free MMS per month while the iValue 4 Plan of RM375/month comes with 400 Free SMS and 40 Free MMS. Maxis now also highlights that iValue Plan allows Free local calls and SMS between its supplementary family lines too.
