Maxis offers RM1 smartphones on MaxisONE Plan


If you’re looking for a new phone, Maxis is offering smartphones for only RM1. This covers a variety of models from Huawei, Samsung, ZTE, Alcatel, ASUS and OPPO.


The RM1 smartphone promo is applicable with a 24-month contract on MaxisONE Plan. The selection of phones will vary depending on which plan you’re on. On the base MaxisONE 98 Plan, you get a choice of 5 devices which includes the Samsung Galaxy J3 and Acer Liquid Z630, and you’ll get more options if you’re on a higher plan.

The OPPO F1s and Huawei P9 Lite are available on MaxisONE 158 while the Huawei P9 flagship can be yours on MaxisONE 188. Existing MaxisOne customers with a contract are also eligible to take up this offer if they have less than 3 months remaining.


The Maxis 4G Pocket WiFi worth RM299 can be yours at RM1 with a 24-month contract on MaxisONE Plan plus a 12-month contract on Pocket WiFi plan. You’ll get a RM30 rebate for the Pocket WiFi on 24-month contract but that’s only applicable if you don’t have an existing MaxisONE Plan contract. In addition, they are also offering a Google Chromecast for RM1 if you sign up with MaxisONE Home.

From the looks of it, Maxis isn’t going to respond to the recent postpaid upgrades by Celcom and Digi. During the last MaxisONE upgrade, their MaxisONE postpaid offering had surpassed 1 million subscribers and they are about to hit the 1.5 million marker soon. To recap, MaxisONE Plan starts from RM98/month with 5GB of data, unlimited calls and SMS, and it gets incremental 5GB more for every RM30/month extra (e.g. MaxisONE 128, 158 and 188).
