Maxis offers FREE HTC Flyer and RM299 Motorola Xoom 3G with data bundling

Posted:  November 18, 2011   By:    75 comments   


UPDATE: According to Maxis here and here, this promo will be resumed on 25th November 2011 and is applicable to all customers. The bundled plan is a 6GB package of Mobile Data that does not come with voice calls.

UPDATE 2: Maxis has published this offering on their website. According to their FAQ, the 6GB data plan can be subscribed as a standalone broadband only SIM or bolt-on on your existing postpaid voice plan. You can purchase a maximum of 2 units per IC number.

UPDATE 3: The FREE HTC Flyer and RM299 Motorola Xoom offer is extended until 31st December 2011. With anticipated demand for this special deal, we reckon it is valid while stocks last.

Maxis is throwing some time limited deals for the HTC Flyer and Motorola Xoom 3G tablets. With 24 months contract of Maxis 6GB Data Plan at RM98/month, the HTC Flyer can be yours for FREE while the Motorola Xoom 3G is offered at RM299.

DiGi too is offering broadband + tablet bundling plans with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. It also comes with a 6GB data plan contract of RM98/month but with a duration of 12 months. However the subsidy amount isn’t as much with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 offered at RM1584.

Overall, this Maxis offer is a huge reduction from its original HTC Flyer and Motorola Xoom offering. According to their tweet, this offer is valid until 30th November.

hafis

is it worth it?

pyrozyro

i had went to the MAXIS klcc – they say it is actually by invitation only ~! WATEHEL maxis

racistmalaysian

I ask Penang branch. Anyone also can buy.

Eric

Seems like maxis centers are not consistent with thier info.. Will check out Seremban center tomorrow morning and see what they say. Been reading up some reviews. Any xoom users here? 299 is indeed a tempting figure

Eric

Was at maxis Seremban center moments ago only to find out this offer is for maxis loyalty customers with at least 5 years of active line. Bloody idiots wasted my time and petrol only. They need to get their info right and not mislead the public like this.

akku

I think it is worth,it is up to if you need it

Eric

Update is their own centers staffs are still blur about it. Some people have been told to go back to check On Monday. Total communication breakdown from a telco company. How ironic is that?

    racistmalaysian

    They also confuse if this is broadband or bolt on data plan. Lol

JunK

Went to Maxis KLCC tis afternoon. Everyone with a maxis postpaid account can buy it. The flyer is free for you when you sign a contract for 2 years(RM98/6GB) for iValue plan. It mean the data is bundle with the iValue plan and not separate broadband account with a separate broadband sim. you need to pay for another RM100 to subscribe for any of the broadband plan(with additional sim). it can be terminated anytime and the RM100 will be deducted in three month from your account.

    Dit Dot

    That's funny. Maxis highest data plan for value plan is RM88 for 3GB. There's nothing higher. 6GB is the Maxis Broadband plan.

Arthur

is that why this info not on their web Site?

Anthony

got my XOOM today @ KLCC Maxis center. it took me about 3 hours to settle it (since nobody knows about this promo, i have to show Maxis official tweeter account for this announcement to them). my situation is, I was Maxis cust for about 10 yrs but just recently jumps to digi (3 mths ago) then they allow me to get this offer but i need to get a postpaid line (min RM30/mth). the sales told me the postpaid line can be terminate after that. however when i read the T&C on the device agreement it stated it need to bundle all the way till 24th mth. anyway i still get the dirt cheap XOOM with RM128/mth X 24 + RM299.

    racistmalaysian

    So is this Broadband plan or data plan?

    mat

    maxis postpaid cust or prepaid cust ?

nan

How about SC giving some clarification about the above post. Is it only based on invitation or applicable for all the customer(New and Existing Maxis Customers).

Man

Any upfront payment require?

Arthur

why the additional RM 30? What other hidden T & C only announced at counter?

    JunK

    you need to have a postpaid account, and the 6GB data is bundle into your iValue plan. The cheapest iValue plan is RM30, so data is RM98, all together is RM128 per month

      Dit Dot

      What's the point of having a postpaid plan when both tablet cannot make phone calls?!??!? Maxis is STUPID!

        racistmalaysian

        exactly. Although you can make call with HTC Flyer with some work around.

      nan

      whats the prices if the user exceeds 6 GB

Patrick

Just went to Bayan Baru Maxis center. The staff their mention that this promotion only valid for Maxis One Club.

Even take my phone number for verification. I am maxis customer for almost 10 years, and they mention I am not eligible for this promotion.

    warren

    Patrick, i managed to get HTC Flyer today. they didn't say that this promotion is for Maxis One Club member but we must be a Maxis postpaid account holder for more than 5 years.

      Patrick

      Warren, I am Maxis postpaid for almost 10 years. I am not eligible for it. Kinda sad.

        Lawrence

        I also Maxis user for more than 10 years. Not eligible.

Lawrence

Exactly. I went to Maxis Center at Gardens, Mid Valley. They told me only selected customers are eligible to get the device at the promotion rate. Kinda disappointed with Maxis. Why they post in twitter since it is only for selected customers. Should make it public since is on Twitter.

Arthur

Sedih sedih.

Charles

Went to KLCC Maxis around 6.45pm today. Saw the Advertisement written 18 – 30 Nov 2011. So the promotion really existed. The promoter also photocopy my IC and etc. Then when I went to payment counter, it say the promotion had been postponed until further notice. Really shame on Maxis for their cheating ads. Waste my 30 minutes.

    Lawrence

    so you are eligible for the purchase?

      Charles

      Eligible. According to the promoter, it is nationwide promotion and all Maxis postpaid users are eligible. No need 10 years or 5 years loyalty. Most important bill payment history is nice (No late payment or blacklisted). All users are eligible to two packages (1 voice plan and 1 broadband plan). But no use .. the promotion had been suspended until further notice.

        Lawrence

        another version of their explanation/excuses. Why they have no standard in their explanation?

    Eugene

    Lucky for me, this morning I went to eCurve center. Took 1 XOOM and 1 Flyer by converting my supplementary line to another principal line. Paid only RM299 and now I have 2 tablets. My additional commitment for both is only RM80 as both lines is already on the RM58 (500MB) data plan.

    I have a feeling it's too good to be true but did read the T&C of the agreement signed and confirmed it's right.

Putera Farid Muhsin

so totally no upfront payment??

kira

this promotion is on hold until further notice..no need watse ur time travel to maxis centres..they just know wasted peoples times only..fcuk maxis!!

    Lawrence

    i saw your post. understand how you feel.

joe

hmm,juz planning to go to maxis centre . but reading all this comment make me still thinking . maxis , could you plizz tell us the truth .

@sicksand

Just went to maxis center in danga bay.
everyone with maxis postpaid acct eligible to this promo.
Promo start 2mrw end 30th
if htc flyer, you will have to pay nothing
If moto xoom, you will have to pay rm299.
3 ways to get
1. Buy yourself new data plan (like ipad plan), in this case rm98 mthly, and you will get new sim card data plan
2. Bundle it with your current data plan, if you have iphone contract, it will add up to your current plan. No sim as you have to take out your iphone sim and insert it into the devices
3. I forgot. Hahahah

    racistmalaysian

    I just received a call from Maxis and what you say is true. Promo start today. And the weirdest thing is I can add 6gb data into my iPhone contract. This is crazy!!! LOLOLOL….

    So means, my 1GB iPhone contract + 6gb Flyer plan… lolololol

      @sicksand

      means you have to swap the sim card. or just leave your iphone stranded cause htc flyer can make call.

        racistmalaysian

        It means I can tether HTC Flyer to iPhone data plan. I read back Soya Cincau latest update and find that the data plan can be independent (which means no call plan). So if I separate the data plan from my iPhone plan, the HTC flyer cannot do calling already. I think the best is to bolt on the data plan to iPhone. After iPhone contract end, I can put the sim card into HTC Flyer and make it like a phone.

      TMM

      so does it mean everytime I wanna connect using maxis data i need to take out the sim from my phone n slot it in to the device?
      pls explain… 🙂

        racistmalaysian

        If your phone can tether, no need. Else, get the iPad plan.

      racistmalaysian

      Before anyone start to get confuse, read Soya Cincau latest update. This is Enhance Mobile Data Plan without voice call.

wonderly

That's means only eligible for maxis POSTPAID user? Not prepaid?

    @sicksand

    try your luck, cause in my case the maxis rep require me to give me my maxis number.

@sicksand

Update : Just got my hand on Moto Xoom 3G. RM299 only. The salesperson almost gave me the WiFi version, me also did not check.

Wal

i just get the HTC FLYER…the device is absolutely free! but the advance payment RM100 is required.
the monthly commitment is RM98 for data plan only, no voice plan added. if you existing postpaid, you can add/upgrade this data plan to your plan..but you should make Multi-Sim on your number..so you can put the Sim in your phone and the tablet together 😀

Charles

Can I know where which centre @sicksand & Wal went to? Seem like KLCC still on hold.

    @sicksand

    I'm at Johor Bahru, Maxis Center Danga Bay, seems only me who went there to get this promo.

    Lawrence

    Try Maxis Center at Gardens, Mid Valley. Got mine this morning. Everything still in box. Didn't get a chance to open it.

    Wal

    i got mine at KLCC…early morning go there…i'm very lucky! 😀

    Wal

    i got mine at KLCC…early morning go there…i'm very lucky! 😀

harris

just went to ttdi maxis centre, almoooost happy cause they say theres only 1 left i was aaa happy person for 10 minutes then suddenly they say oppps sorry finish already just sold it to the other customer dang just dang, went to the e curve maxis centre also but over there they say the moto xoom on hold sigh….

racistmalaysian

I also grab a HTC Flyer from Maxis Bayan Lepas (Penang). Unfortunately I saw a dust underneath touch screen. They can't swap 1 to 1. So tommorow I'll go SiS and hopefully they swap 1 to 1 for me.

Quite a great deal IMHO. The HTC Flyer looks great.

Charles

Got myself Motorola Xoom 3G at Maxis KLCC today around 7.30 pm. Thanks to Wal for the information. Suprisingly the promoter there are not aware that the promotion resumed. Or Maxis not willing to sell the device at RM299? Well I was asked to get another simcard with RM100 deposit which will be deducted in bill. I think it is really a good bargain.

nan

what will be extra charges if 6GB data is exceeded. Hope the buyers can reply on this.

Iddeen

So new user is not eligible?

joe

i've got it ! yeah !

Tommy Chooi

just check with Maxis Center @ The Gardens out of stock and I ask for multi-sim being inform that this is a new line so no voice or any sort of service .. just only data available ….

Well gotta try my luck at KLCC tomorrow 🙂

Cairel

On the website stated "*Valid from 18th – 30th Nov. Applicable to all Maxis centre and MEP."
Does anyone check with their MEP? ayoooooo do we have to check with each of the center/MEP for stock ka?

hakim

go to any MEP…i see a lot of htc flyer in the MEP,…but the officer in MEP tesco melaka there ask me alot of supported document…like wanna buy a car..LOL

Human

Hi, can I ask what is the actual price for the Broadband Package if I am not an existing Maxis Voice Plan user? I suscribed this BB plan but the next day they inform me that this package only for Maxis Voice Plan user, and they say if not Voice Plan User, I am to pay for extra RM10 per month, is it true?

ismazri

just go to Carrefour Wangsa Maju maxis. They told me I can grab HTC Flyers if I change my hotlink to postpaid RM50/month. So total deposit RM100+RM50. But feel curious coz they asked for my license and passport/birth certificate instead only ic. 3 documents??? But HTC still out of stock, maybe need to wait 2-3 days.

MissAnne

Yesterday, my officemate go Maxis TTDI around 2PM. There's a lot of people queue.4 of my officemate got their HTC Flyer. Just pay RM100 activation & monthly RM98 for 24months contract. But at 4PM, out of stock already. Then we check at Maxis Cineleisure,also out of stock. But at Maxis OU, you can book the device & they will order for you. Anyone can buy, although you are not Maxis customer. They just need IC number & check in their system wether your name blacklisted or not. Then can proceed..

yap

I got my htc flyer yesterday at the gardens maxis center, u just need to pay RM100 for the upfront payment. I'm new to maxis broadband. Is there anyone know how to check the data usage? I can't register the mylaunch pad under the maxis website, thanks

    cikgu z

    Also got mine on Saturday. Cannot registr to mylnchpd but u can reg under Maxis account…..still don't know how to check the usage..but u can download and install MY DATA MANAGER from market..

Tracykym

May I know which device is better? HTC or Motorola?

Cikgu Z

6GB ++++ additional usage automatically charge to our account…without our permission…so RM98+++++
Not like others broadband,, fix RM98 additional 1 GB + RM28 but only when you apply for it…

Cikgu Z

NO NEED TO BE A MAXIS SUBCRIBER OR LOYATY MEMBER… JUST SIGN FOR A NEW ACCOUT to get this offer..

noni

It sounds very nice. FREE…but beware of the usage…. always unchecked the mobile data button….android eats your data so greedy…

Thomas
