As the big impending launch of the iPhone 5 on December 14 looms over Malaysia, telco Maxis has released full details of its iValue plans. The new packages don’t differ too much from previous, but offers more data as well as some extras for its subscribers.
iValue plans start from as low as RM50, with data packages of 1GB, 200 mins of local call credits, 100 SMS. The newly introduced iValue Simple plan supersedes the previous iValue 1 entry level plan. Maxis has increased data by 1GB across the board for its plans. With a 12-month contract on iValue Simple, you can take home an iPhone 5 for RM2,099.
Higher up the range with iValue 5 @ RM375 per month, subscribers get a whopping 2,500mins of calls, 10GB of data, 4GB of Wi-Fi allowance, 800 SMS and 80 MMS. With a 24-month contract, you get the iPhone 5 for free.
As with previous packages with the iPhone 4S, we feel that the iValue 2 plan packs the best value. Maxis has not indicated extended 2-year warranty for 24-month contract, as previously, though.
Do note at the time of purchase, there is an advance payment for your plan ranging from RM300 to RM2,000 depending on our plan and contract period.
