News & Reviews: Maxis plan
Oct 15, 2015
With the official release of the Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus happening at 12am on 16 October 2015 we've put together a quick telco plan comparison according to below RM100 and above RM200 monthly commitment payments. While you can just as easily do this with our phone plan comparison tool, the tables below should offer a quick look at what most people are worried about here in Malaysia, the price. As such the tables below cover the Apple iPhone 6s with 16GB storage for 24 month contracts and the various Malaysian telcos that support 24 month contract periods. As always, we recommend you opening up our phone plan comparison tool for a more specific comparison according to your own specifications but the tables below should help you determine which plan bundle works best for you if price is your main concern.

Maxis are now offering the Sony Xperia Z3 with a trade-in offer up to RM950. Certain smartphones like the Apple iPhone 5S or Samsung Galaxy S5 will get this rebate but even if you bring in a no-name phone it will still get a trade-in value of RM200 (as long as it is still working). Granted, you will have to sign up for a Maxis One plan for 24 months but you'll be able to get the Xperia Z3 from RM1499 which is quite a drop from the retail value of RM2399. Check out the details in the table in this article.

Maxis is also offering the Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on pre-order. The iPhone 6 is available from as low RM659 while the iPhone 6 Plus can be had for as low as RM999. This is of course on a 24 month contract but you also have the option to sign up for a 12 month contract as well. As a bonus to Maxis fans and helping it stand out from the other telcos, Maxis will be offering their Midnight Express delivery service as well. In short, Maxis will select a few lucky users from their Pre-order list and send it to you on 6 November 2014 for FREE anywhere, as long as you put down the details in the Deliver Option field for the pre-order.

If you'd rather go for a Maxis postpaid plan for your new Apple iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, then do check out the Maxis Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-check page. Acting sort of like the usual registration of interest page, the pre-check page will allow Maxis to get in touch with you when it comes out. No news on a possible Malaysia release date or pricing just yet but DiGi have it coming on 7 November 2014 so it isn't all that far off in actuality. Stay tuned for more developments and we'll keep you posted as soon as we know.

The large screen Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 is the large screen device for the latest large screen smartphone for the masses but even at the retail price of RM1299, some people would appreciate a little help or a bundled postpaid plan.

Maxis is now offering the Samsung Galaxy Alpha from RM1199.

As a bonus loyal Maxis users who have had a year's worth of good payment and port-in users with good payments records for the past 3 months don't have to pay the advance payment.

Previously Maxis had a trade in program where you could trade in certain smartphones for the Apple iPhone 5s. With the impending release of the next Apple iPhone, Maxis are stepping it up by now accepting all smartphones. A minimum RM200 discount will be given for any smartphone traded in at any Maxis Centre or Maxis Exclusive Partner store in Malaysia. Higher-end or more valuable smartphones get better discounts. As before, this will be done on the Maxis iValue postpaid plan and you will have to sign up for a 24-month contract. Again, all you need to do is bring in the trade-in smartphone itself.
