Celcom flat rate on roaming & IDD promo for cross border calls

Posted:  February 21, 2011   By:    4 comments   


Celcom is making it easier to stay connected overseas with its flat rates on international roaming. All SMS sent from abroad are now charged at a flat rate of 98 sen. For voice calls while roaming, Celcom now charges a flat rate but varies depending on which zone. Each zone is actually based on region with Zone 1 being Singapore, Zone 2 within Asia Pacific, Zone 3 for Europe and North America, Zone 4 for Middle East and Zone 5 for other countries in the rest of the world.


With this flat rate, you should be able to budget your calls accordingly without worrying about different rates from various providers and fluctuating exchange rates.


If you make calls to Johor and Brunei, Celcom is also doing a cross border promo from as low as 25 sen/min. Of course this is only applicable for cross border such as Johor to Singapore and Sarawak to Brunei. Surprisingly there’s no promotion for Sabah to Brunei or our Northern states to Thailand. Calls are charged at 30 seconds block and is valid until 18th April 2011.

DiGi is offering something similar as well with Johor to Singapore calls being charged at 18 sen/min for fixed line or 28 sen/min for mobile numbers. For International Roaming SMS, they too charge a flat rate but at 99 sen per SMS.

Recently I found there is another provider call FlexiRoam, they offer a much better rate, unlimited make and receive call for RM 10/day


Flexiroam is actually a call forwarding service and you need to have a simcard from visiting country to use the service.
This is how : Get your Malaysian telco to activate call forwarding (you MUST have the service), travel and get a local simcard (local means visiting country), change simcard, sms your local number to flexiroam and you are ready to go! The downside, call will be terminated as it reaches 10 minutes. Also, service only forward call but not sms so you may have to carry another phone for your Malaysian number to make sure you don't miss any sms.

On the other hand, Celcom has another special rate if you roam with their Axiata telcos, 98sen flat for all calls and sms. Oh, with M1 Singapore, per sms is only 65sen. And i heard that Celcom is not continuing the Boarder Rate promo which ends end August,


My credit limit is Rm750 but I was charged Rm 3964 for gprs roaming. Why didn't celcom just bar my line when I exceeded my credit limit as it usually does? Nobody in celcom is able to give a reasonable answer. I have been given a run around from branch &careline- When I insisted in speaking to someone with authority of celcom,they were unable to be of any help. Can you please helpme resolve this. Inadditon, yesterday I was sent an SMS asking me to pay more (Rm4757.25) which is not accounted for. I can't understand how they derived to this amount. My line was barred yesterday but after numerous reasoning they have reinstated my line temporarily.
