You know that time; that time when you are finally in the market for a new device. More specifically when you are in the market for a new smartphone. That time to brainstorm your choices, shortlist the few that you like. Once that’s done you start studying; which one fits your personality, requirements, and which is the best value for money. After that you start deciding whether or not you should get it with a carrier or should you get it without the service plans; of course there is the matter of choosing which of the major carriers you want to deal with. Here is where the problem starts to show. The option of getting a smartphone with a data, call, and messaging plan is only available in the form of postpaid plans. If you are on a prepaid line; you never had the choice of buying the smartphone with your service provider anyway.
Celcom says not anymore though. Celcom Xpax today launches the EasyPhone for Prepaid plan exclusively for Xpax prepaid users. The EasyPhone for Prepaid plan is the first-of-its-kind plan in Malaysia that allows prepaid users to get their smartphones with Celcom. The EasyPhone for Prepaid is supposedly also the most affordable program of its kind (it is the first program of its type anyway). It is also the most seamless smartphone installment plan you may find in Malaysia though. Why?
First of all you would have to know that there will be 30 available devices from the most popular brands from the program. There is even the latest Apple iPhone 7 or 7+ and Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ devices on offer with the program so it is not a trimmed down program for prepaid users. You are technically getting the full beans and benefits of a proper installment plan.
So why could it be the most fuss free installment plan in Malaysia? In partnership with AEON Credit Service Berhad, interested parties need only to apply for the installment plan for their smartphone of choice online. You do not even need to own a credit card to apply for it. Three days later (if all the criterion required is fulfilled) the approval comes out and all you need to do is walk into any Blue Cube store and collect your smartphone. You can also apply for the plans directly from any Blue Cube outlet store if you either do not have access to the internet or find the online process a little confusing.
The installment plans are all on 24-month payment schemes and prices start from MYR74/month. Currently the plans are only for Malaysians only (understandably). If you are an existing AEON card holder though you do get special interest rates for the Celcom Xpax EasyPhone plan. Your plan approval can also be obtained within 15 minutes (they say up to 24 hours, so it may vary for different users).
