About a week ago, Yes had started offering its customers some usage info on Self Care which displays how much data, calls and SMS you’ve made so far. Now they’ve added a new feature called Statement of Account which should rightfully show you itemised details of your usage. Unfortunately at time of posting, it doesn’t show anything for our account. Most probably we might need to wait for our billing cycle in order for the statement to be generated.
At least now the question of how much we’ve used and what we used it for is more or less addressed. However there are other questions unanswered such as:
Hopefully these questions are answered after we get our first statement.
Celcom is doing something special this Chinese New Year by giving away a limited edition red colour BlackBerry Torch everyday from 20th January till 18th February 2011.

UPDATE : Just before 12:00AM, there’s already a queue of 20+ people at Berjaya Times Square for the U Mobile BlackBerry Sale. Pic below after the jump.
UPDATE 2 :: U Mobile replied to our tweet on whether there will be any bundled plans for BlackBerry devices and whether the BlackBerry Torch will be offered. Answer is no for now.
UPDATE 3:: As there’s definitely more than 20 people standing in line at the Boulevard of Berjaya Times Square right now, your chances of getting a Bold 9780 for RM3 is pretty much zilch but U Mobile says you should still drop by and take a look at what they have to offer tomorrow as there will be a lucky draw where the winner gets to purchase a BlackBerry for RM3. U Mobile didn’t however say which BB specifically.
U Mobile had earlier put out a teaser about its BlackBerry sale but not much details on the service plans were revealed. Building up to the launch tomorrow however, the U Mobile Twitter account have been providing some clues of what you can expect at the sale.
We’ve scanned through U Mobile’s Twitter timeline and have some interesting information about tomorrow’s launch to share with you.
If you’re buying a hamper this Chinese New Year, here’s an interesting alternative to consider. A local phone retailer has introduced a gadget themed hamper called the “Apple CNY Package” that bundles an iPad or iPhone 4 for this festive season.
There are 3 packages on offer at RM6888, RM3888 and RM3333 respectively. The most expensive RM6888 bundle contains:
Maxis is doing another round of festive promos on devices with more discounts on selected phones. This promo however is tied with a 24 months contract with either a 3GB data plan or BIS Pro plan that comes with 3GB.
So what’s interesting on the offer? The Nokia N8 is now RM788 (usual RM999 with 24 months contract) while the Motorola Defy is now offered at RM888 (usual: RM999). The HTC Desire Z also sees a reduction to RM1388 (usual: RM1449).
To sweeten the deal for Samsung Galaxy Tab, Maxis is offering an outright price of RM1999 (original RRP: RM2699) with any purchase of a Value Plus Plan and data plan. As comparison, the Galaxy Tab is offered on contract at RM1749 over 24 months and RM1849 over 12 months.

Multitasking work on Android devices, that’s nothing new, but the tap and hold technique is not the fastest way for you to switch between apps on Android.
SwipePad is a free app that allows you to switch between apps on your Android phone faster and it looks way cooler. All you need to do is swipe across the screen to call out a pad with all your running apps. The gesture to call out the pad is customisable so you can have a gesture that you’re comfortable with, and you can also add shortcuts for frequently called numbers, apps or just about anything else you’d like to have access to in a jiffy (like folders or files).
We tried it out for ourselves and it’s a utility that we can really get comfortable with. If you are running an Android device, it’s something we recommend you try out.
If you need more convincing, head over to after the jump for a demo video on how SwipePad works. To download, search for SwipePad in the Android Market direct from your Android phone.
