Preorders for the iPhone X kick off today, so to help you make a decision on where to get yours, here's a roundup of what the damage will be from each telco.
Digi is keeping it fairly simple with three postpaid plans, the Postpaid 78, Postpaid 108 and Postpaid 138. Here's a breakdown of how much the device will cost by plan and iPhone X version:
Postpaid 78: RM3895 (64GB), RM4555 (RM256GB)

Celcom offers up two options - you can go either with a "regular" plan or its EasyPhone installment scheme, which allows you to pony up for the phone via monthly payments on top of your subscription fees. The plans are the First Gold Plus (RM98 monthly), First Gold Supreme (RM128), First Platinum (RM148) and the First Platinum Plus (RM188).
For the plans, pricing is as follows:
First Gold Plus: RM3718 (64GB), RM4378 (256GB)
First Gold Supreme: RM3508, RM4168
First Platinum: RM3358, RM4018
Take note that there will also be upfront payments on top of the subscription fee.
First Platinum Plus: RM3078, RM3738
For the EasyPhone plan, you will still need to sign up for a plan and then pay the added fee monthly. These fees (on top of your plan) are as follows:
First Gold Plus: RM165 (64GB), RM192 (256GB)
First Gold Supreme: RM153, RM180
First Platinum: RM148, RM175
First Platinum Plus: RM138, RM165

The U Mobile plan is probably the least complicated, with only two options, the Postpaid i90 and the Postpaid i130. Device advance payment is required and you will receive rebates on your bill over 24 months.
