We don’t see the need for people to change numbers but this gives you the option to switch if you need to run away from annoying stalkers.
Tune Talk claims super low rates but we beg to differ. Tune Talk charges the same rate to all domestic networks at 22 sen/minute for calls and 5 sen/SMS. International rates are claimed to be lower than the competition and International SMS are charged at a fix rate of 20sen/minute.
It is also mentioned that all calls are charged on 60 seconds block which isn’t an efficient in bill charging. As mentioned before on 60 seconds billing block, this simply means a good 5 second “Hello, I’ve reached home” will be charged as full minute at 22 sen.
Compared to other prepaids in the market, TuneTalk rates aren’t competitive enough and the big blocky 60 seconds block is quite a turn off. However it looks like TuneTalk will try to justify the higher rate with its unique benefits with its partners such as Etiqa and AirAsia.
If you’re interested, you can book your number now. Tune Talk numbers start with the range of 010-52X XXXX, 010-53X XXXX and 010-54X XXXX. Each simpack comes with RM5 preloaded credit with 30 days validity.
