DiGi Telecommunications (“DiGi”) is one of three big telcos in the country to have a midnight ‘launch’ of the new Apple iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c smartphones. The yellow telco is offering the iPhone 5s from as low as RM965 with a iDiGi 138 plan, and the iPhone 5c is free with the iDiGi 238 plan.
DiGi held its 31 October 2013 iPhone Midnight Launch at five DiGi Stores:
- Klang Valley – SS2 – No. 24, Jalan SS2/66, 47300Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

DiGi made available the iPhone 5c for just RM99 with the DiGi 138 plan, limited to 100 units per DiGi Store on a first come, first served basis. This applies to the five stores participating in the iPhone Midnight Launch on 31 October 2013 (12.01am – 5.30am).
DiGi introduced a smart way to virtually queue for the new iPhone devices prior to the launch proper. Called the #DIGIFASTLINE, buyers can ‘queue’ online and can get on the fast track by Facebook sharing and tweeting. 250 spots were allocated, and this concept allowed selected #DIGIFASTLINE winners to get devices first.
One of the first owners of the iPhone 5s was Jason Ooi, who was also one of 250 #DIGIFASTLINE selected ‘queuejumpers’.
With the iDiGI 238 plan, you can grab a 16GB iPhone 5s for just RM317. The iDiGi 238 plan gives you 5GB of data, 1,000 minutes of voice calls, 600 SMS and 60 MMS. Voice calls rates are 10 sen/minute, SMS/MMS at 10sen / SMS/MMS. More plans here - http://new.digi.com.my/cs/Satellite/ecomm_C/smartphone_main_product/default/iphone5s
