U Mobile offers more data and financial flexibility to own the iPhone 6s in Malaysia

151009-umobile-iphone-6s-official-plan

The big 3 telcos – Celcom, Digi and Maxis have revealed their iPhone 6s plans. If you take a glance at all 3, they are the same old postpaid contract approach where you fork out a hefty sum for both device and advance payment. For U Mobile, they are offering similar plans as before but it gets more generous quotas and greater flexibility to make owning an iPhone 6s easier.

Could this be the best iPhone 6s deal in town? Read on to find out.

For starters, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are offered with their iPlans, offering Voice, SMS and data all-in in either postpaid or prepaid. The lowest option is their i40 plan that comes with 1.5GB of data, 40 minutes of calls and 20 SMS to all networks for just RM40/month. If you commit RM20/month extra on i60, you’ll get 5GB of data, 60 minutes of calls and 30 SMS. For any excess usage, all calls are charged at 5 sen/30 seconds and 3 sen/SMS to all networks

For the hardcore users, the higher i90 (RM90/month) and i130 (RM130/month) plans both offer unlimited phone calls and they come with 7GB and 10GB of data respectively. This is probably the closest plan to their recent P70 Hero Postpaid offering. Overall, U Mobile appears to be the most generous with data among the 4 participating telcos.

If you have an existing device, you can trade-up hassle free with U Mobile and they are accepting as high as RM1,900 for an iPhone 6 Plus. On top of that, all trade-ups to an iPhone 6s will enjoy extra savings with an additional RM100 rebate.

During sign up, there’s an advance payment which is rebated back across 24 months. However this can be waived if you pay the device by credit card and sign up for auto debit billing facility. There’s also a 0% interest EPP scheme with participating credit cards.

Another neat reason to sign up with U Mobile is its Contract Freedom promise. You may leave their network at anytime without penalty. However you’ll either lose the remaining rebates if you’ve paid advance payment and for those who didn’t, will need to pay back the pro-rated subsidy of the device.
