The first thing that comes to your mind when we say “Apple product release” is finding out what it is (as you should). Since we’ve got that covered, there’s the second matter of order – getting your hands on one.
If you intend on being one of the first few to own it, you definitely need a strategy, and we’re here to help you with that. Celcom, DiGi and Maxis have confirmed they're bringing the iPhone in by 6 Nov so we're here to help you get one by then.
It may take a few days longer, but you don’t have to deal with the hassle of a crazy crowd, especially bumping bodies with sweaty people (who may not have showered if they’ve been queuing for more than a day). You can get your details in to one of the main three telcos (Digi, Celcom, Maxis) plus, you can do it from the comforts of your own home.
MaxisThere are a few reasons to consider Maxis, if you aren't already on its network. For one, it allows you to purchase the phones under a 12-month contract, though be prepared for a lower subsidy for the phone.
There's also the Maxis Midnight Express. As its name imples, it's a midnight delivery service for the moment when the clock strikes midnight on 6 November. That's right, none of the sweaty bodies and aggravated tempers when you queue for the iPhone. Just wait for it to land on your lap.
DiGiNo 12-month contracts here, just the full two year bond that ties you to DiGi if you purchase the iPhone. On the bright side, the subsidy for the iPhone is pretty decent, and monthly subscriptions start from RM50 to RM238. Of course, a higher-tier monthly subscription gives you a cheaper iPhone, which could go as low as RM557 and RM892 for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus respectively.
CelcomOf the three telcos, Celcom is the quietest, with no details of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus price plans. The only inkling that the telco is bringing in the iPhones is the registration page.
