DiGi Postpaid Scams.. Oh sorry, Plans..

As usual, Malaysia' political scene is once again in a mess and I'll keep to my word of not blogging about it because its utterly rubbish and only spoiling Malaysia's name in the eyes of the world. Developing country? We? My arss...

Anyway, something closer to our ears.. Handphones.. DiGi Postpaid Plans.. Like every other telco company in Malaysia, DiGi rolls out their massive packages every 3 or 4 months. In April 2008, I subscribed to DiGi 1 Plan; the one plan to supposedly rule them all..

Take notice of 2 things..

SMS to other telcos : 15 cents
Extra Features : FREE calls, SMS and MMS after RM123 usage

Lately, DiGi unveiled 4 more new packages replacing the existing 1 Plan.

Even so, old 1 Plan subscribers were not asked to change to any one of these packages even though it can be cheaper using the DG50, DG 150, and DG250 packages. I even read something sayinh, 1 Plan users might not be able to use these latest packages. I'm going to the DiGi centre on Saturday to rectify this. Better hope somebody doesn't get a hurt real bad!

Notice that SMS to other telcos using the new plans is now 10 cents (except DG20 package)

And another important information DiGi failed to inform me is effective from July 2008, they have removed the "Extra Feature" available in 1 Plan. The extra feature was the main reason many including myself switched to the plan.

Even if you want to remove it, at least have the courtesy to at least send an email or SMS to your subscribers saying so. Its only stated in a small column under DiGi Postpaid FAQ segment. But they are super efficient at sending out countless emails and sms reminders to pay your BILL!

In the end, everything is like the politicians of this country.. Money and power hungry..
