Maxis no longer offers the iPhone on Zerolution

Maxis iPhone Zerolution

The Maxis Zerolution program allows anyone to own a brand new smartphone with easy monthly instalments and RM0 upfront. On top of that, you can swap phones every 12 months hassle-free for an extra monthly fee.

Now it appears that Maxis has stopped offering iPhones on Zerolution and if you plan to get one from Maxis, you’ll need to take up a standard contract plan.

Maxis has updated their Zerolution iPhone page with the following message:

The Zerolution for iPhone promotional offer has ended. However, customers who have Zerolution for iPhone with Annual Upgrade may still upgrade their iPhone after 12 monthly installments.

So, if you’re currently on a Zerolution contract, you still can swap to a newer iPhone when you’ve reached 12 months into your tenure. The Zerolution program is still around but it is only for Android smartphones from Samsung, Huawei and OPPO. If you don’t plan on swapping phones each year, the standard contract plans are actually more worthwhile as the cost of ownership is significantly lower than Zerolution.

The Zerolution program was introduced in 2015 and it was available for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7. If you’ve signed up for an iPhone 7 on Zerolution a year ago, you should be able to swap to the latest iPhone 8 very soon.

Are you a Zerolution customer with an iPhone 6s/7? Let us know what you think of the Zerolution program.

Thanks Edward Koh for the heads up!
