After introducing its device instalment plan to its postpaid customers in May 2017, Celcom today makes available EasyPhone to its Xpax prepaid subscribers. EasyPhone gives customers a chance to own a wide selection of today’s best smartphones, through a convenient 24-month instalment plan, from as low as MYR74 per month.
EasyPhone in a nutshell, is Celcom’s answer to Maxis’ Zerolution, the all-in-one device ownership plan where you pay both device and telco plan in single monthly payments.
Celcom has partnered with AEON Credit Service Berhad, pioneering this ownership plan for its prepaid customers. What’s unique is that you do not need a credit card or any upfront payment to sign up.
You may argue that telcos like U Mobile also has device instalment programs for prepaid users, but here’s the thing.
When you sign up, you’ll also get monthly MYR30 airtime that’s included as part of your total monthly instalment, for a duration of 24 months. This is unique to the industry and has not been done before.
The plan offers a choice of over 30 trending models from well-known makes including Samsung, Huawei, OPPO, Xiaomi, as well as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 series.
One thing to note that the original EasyPhone for postpaid offers Device Protection, in partnership with AmTrust Mobile Solutions from MAA Takaful. However, it is currently not available as an option for prepaid users.
With Device Protection, you get peace of mind with your device, for a minimal monthly fee.
What’s covered? Robbery and snatch theft; house break-ins, accidental and liquid damage; airtime abuse; and mobile device renting in case of loss when roaming.
Celcom says that it’s working to bring device protection to prepaid customers as well. No time frame has been given.
To register for EasyPhone, apply through a simple digital application, or walk into the nearest Blue Cube outlet. Naturally, you will need to provide supporting documentation including information of your employment status. Processing takes up to 3 working days. Existing AEON customers get much quicker approval.
The Xpax starter pack costs MYR10, and comes with free 10GB of basic internet, free 10GB of Facebook internet, MYR6 of airtime credit, 200MB of hi-speed internet, with 7 days validity upon activation. Xpax also offers “unlimited entertainment” through Video Walla and Music Walla, which gives you additional data for streaming services, from as low as MYR1 per day.
