Maxis giving away free phones to new and port-in subscribers

Free phones include the Huawei P9 and Honor 5X

Maxis just announced a pretty sweet deal for new subscribers or those porting in from other telcos: they're giving away phones, but only with select phones. It's only for new subscribers so current subscribers won't be eligible.

Ten phones are on offer, namely the Huawei P9, Honor 5X, Oppo F1, Huawei GR3, Asus Zenfone Go, Samsung J1 Ace, Samsung J3, Samsung J5, Acer Liquid Z630 and Lenovo A7000. 

There is a caveat, though. While the phones are listed as 'free' there will be a 'Device Advance' fee to pay and you'll be tied down to a 24-month contract. While it looks like a decent deal if you've been planning a switch to Maxis, you might be better off just buying some of the devices outright considering the Honor 5X for instance is only RM999.

A promo is also going on for its Share Line feature for supplementary lines, but only with the Zerolution plans and the following models: Huawei Mate P8, Huawei P8, Oppo F1 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Basically it's a three-month rebate for the Share Line features.

To place an order or have a look at your options, go to the Maxis promo page here. The promo is running until 31 July 2016.
