Maxis has brought the Iphone in finally
after it has been released last year...
finally it reaches Malaysia
The Iphone is sold by maxis with contracts
which means you have to be with maxis
for about 12 months
with a monthly payment la.
just like normal applying for a new line
now the question is
SHOULD YOU BUY AN IPHONE BY MAXIS?
according to my friend who works inside maxis
there are some things that you should know
The 1st thing is
you get a 1 year warranty by maxis/apple
but according to Maxis
You're not allowed to download any other softwares/programes into the Iphone
if you do so, the warranty will be voided
i mean like WTF??
so basically u get an Iphone which you cant download any programs
you can just listen to songs and use the normal functions of the phone
then 2nd thing is..
In an Iphone...
there is a software that is built it with the Iphone
where whenever there isn't any wifi
the phone will automatically connect to GPRS
which will cost a bomb to users if it happens
there is a program by apple to disable this software
but how the hell are you gonna download the software
if ur warranty will be voided if you download any program?
then 3rd part is
If you buy an Apple Iphone from outside of the country
the kiasu maxis
has made up this rule whereas
They can deny repair services to the Iphone
or also deny maxis services to the phone if asked
because the Iphone you bought
is not dealed by Maxis
thus they'll say you got it ILLEGALLY
All this news has been informed from my friend
PLEASE DO NOT TAKE EVERYTHING HERE FOR GRANTED
as it is just news passed down
and is just the current situation reported by my friend
but one thing for sure
MAKE SURE YOU DO CHECK THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
OF THE MAXIS IPHONE
just think about it if ur buying the Iphone=)
and make sure u read every condition set by maxis
so you wont regret anything
till da next post
