advantages of using Digi Mobile Phone Plan
It has been a couple of months now since the new government implementation of mobile number portability (MNP) has taken place in our country. Yet many of us are still in doubt about changing or switching to other port servers like Digi or Celcom. Why? Because we do not have enough information about how this new system will affect our usage of mobile phones in our daily life. We are not so sure whether it’s a good thing to switch or not. We have no idea that the new ruling is actually going to benefits all of us. Allow me to discuss about this and we will run some comparison between networks in terms of their advantages and their disadvantages.
Introduction should be made first about mobile number portability since I assume at least 60% of us still need to be enlightened. This so-called implementation is not something new in the UK and some other countries. It is an opportunity given to any mobile phone user to opt to switch to other server or carrier without losing his or her current mobile phone number. For instance, if you are now using Maxis Hotlink with 017 prefix numbers, you have the chance to switch to another carrier such as digi and as you all know that digi’s prefix is 016, you can still retain your mobile phone 017 number though the ownership of the service now belongs to digi.
A brief pre-launch was run for few prepaid mobile phone numbers in Klang Valley and selected phone service providers centers and then it went live on the October 15th. There is actually a central clearing house system involved to implement MNP and therefore there is a fee of RM25 to be charged.
Why switch now when I already have a long good relationship with my current mobile phone service provider? Well if that was your first question, then my answer is simple. It’s easy and it costs you nothing. The latest development is still too new to Malaysian and therefore all the service providers have taken the initiative to absorb the registration and switching fees. Furthermore, most of them have promised us that the transition wouldn’t cause any service interruptions.
In fact, you can always switch your mobile phone plan online without having to queue at the counters and waiting for your turn to be called. This convenience service is currently being offered by yellow digi that claimed that they will deliver the SIM package to our home address if we choose to switch to digi online. I consider that as a superb service from digi beyond our expectation, don’t you think so?
All right let us take a look at why you should transfer your mobile phone number to digi. I am going to say all these in general first without referring to other available mobile service providers since I think it is best if I post a separate article on this. Believe me, this is going to be a long one for you to absorb so get ready to read all my nonsense ramblings here lol.
Switching to Digi is a breeze and once you have installed your digi SIM card into your mobile phones, you should start to realize that you will actually save more of your money when you use Digi. Yes this is true since you can enjoy more savings of your calls usage as well as SMS without any conditions since Digi has kindly offered the service to everyone. Either you choose prepaid mobile phone plan or standard contract-based mobile phone plan, you will still save more than other mobile phone service providers.
How is that possible? Well with Digi you will enjoy the lowest flat rates for all calls nationwide. The rate is also cheaper when you use SMS or Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS). The best part is the rate is also applicable when you call someone that is using other networks such as Maxis Hotlink or Celcom Malaysia. If I choose to switch, then in my humble opinion this is going to make me easier to communicate with anyone on any network. I’ll be more than happy to contact anyone and still enjoy the lowest call rate ever.
As you all know Digi’s famous value-added service is its Friends and Family. When you activate this service from Digi, you will have more time to communicate to your close friends and families. The call rates are even lower with this value-added service and eventually this would lead to more healthy and quality communication with your BFF or your family. Mind you though that this wonderful feature from Digi however is only applicable if both numbers subscribe to Digi. It does not matter if your number is 017 and your girlfriend’s number is 018 as long as both have been switched to Digi.
Digi Malaysia may not be the major player in mobile phone service industry here in Malaysia but in terms of continuous exceptional services, they should be voted as the best one. Digi has always been the innovative market leader with introductions of flat call rates not just to within the network but also to all other networks. The yellow guy you always see in tv as well as in papers are actually symbolizing the uniqueness of Digi and how it always strive to serve its customers better.
Another good thing about switching to Digi is their transparent policy on their fees. No hidden fees are charged without our consent. Speaking about this, I think this is almost true for some people that are using contract-based plans with other networks. they were always charged ridiculously without them even knowing about why they were charged. I’m not sure why this is possible and if I may put my two cents in, only here, in our country, that companies can get away with scam like this.
Now how about rewards? I used to talk about Maxis Hotlink rewards. How about Digi? Does it have any kind of rewards to be granted to its loyal users? Sure it does and I believe it is even more and even better. Anything and everything you spend with Digi is always rewarded such as monthly surprises, birthday bonuses and even free insurance coverage. Those are just some of them and there are still other surprises and rewards that you will receive when you switch to Digi online.
Do you know that Digi provides its users free around the clock support? Yes it does and it is good to know that Digi’s customer care center can always be called and their representatives are more than capable to assist you with your issues. Furthermore, Digi has also introduced a chat service where you can have a chat online with its customer service representatives anytime of the day, seven days a week. Again, it’s free.
Anyone in this world would be much happier if we were given a chance to be in control of anything. Well, Digi realized this nature and therefore they are giving us full control of what we spend and how we spend at all times when we switch to Digi. For example, you may pick your own preferences when it comes to bill statement date or maybe you opt to get immediate usage updates through e-billing (yes they have this service). With digi, you can also enjoy free automatic credit alerts so you know exactly how much credit balance you still have in your mobile phone. Even the grace period is quite generous compared to other network’s plans and you can always keep your mobile phone plan active with automatic bill payments.
‘I will follow you….everywhere you go…’ a line of the song that we hear it almost everyday everywhere. In fact the song has been haunting me for quite some time lol. I mentioned before that Digi strives hard to ensure it can provide better service for its clients. There are currently eight thousands Digi outlets nationwide to serve its clients. The reception has also improved from time to time in other words you can now count on Digi’s widest data coverage in the country. No worries if you always travel abroad as Digi has international roaming coverage in over one hundred and sixty countries around the world and they are planning to add more.
In short, Digi is making things easier for us every day if we choose to switch to any of Digi plans online. Let’s go deeper now into Digi’s mobile phone plans. Digi is offering both prepaid mobile phone service plans as well as the standard post-paid plans. Several packages available in each of the plans and we will take some time to ramble more about it in our future post. For now, let us check out the Digi post-paid mobile phone plan benefits and advantages.
Digi’s post-paid plans offer you the simplest price plans and each one of them has been designed to suit your needs. All of the plans in Digi’s post-paid mobile phone service share the same unbeatable service; flat call rates nationwide. It is such a nuisance when I have to think who is on which service provider and actually when the new mobile number portability implementation has taken place, it makes things even worse. Thanks to Digi, it is a pleasure when I don’t have to think abut this anymore since the call rates are the same for all port servers.
When it comes to switching the mobile phone service provider and still retain the mobile phone number, Digi could be the easiest one to sign-up with. Well first of all you can register and get your moble phone plan to be switched online and then just for your information, Digi does not charge you any deposits or up-front payments when you switch to their services, without incurring any cost. In other words, Digi is absorbing the fees at this moment and that is actually a relief for many people.
No, I will never change to Digi, unless they give me free perks! Aha, this is perhaps one of the best options provided by Digi for other networks’ users. When you sign-up a contract-based plan with Digi, you deserve to obtain a free mobile phone (hey don't expect too much you won't get a nokia N96 mobile phone) as well as amazing free calls and SMS. Check out their site to see which plan has this unique offer.
Now we are going to look into the benefits of using Digi’s prepaid mobile phone plans. Digi has been promoting its 1 low flat rate of 36 cents for calls nationwide for quite some time. Furthermore, just like Maxis Hotlink prepaid mobile phone plan or Celcom Blue prepaid mobile phone plan, Digi’s prepaid plan also has the value-added service where you can register up to eleven Digi’s numbers to enjoy lowest call rates and SMS rates whenever you call these eleven numbers.
Oh yes there is one special promotion from Digi when you switch from your prepaid mobile phone plan to Digi prepaid mobile plan. You may enjoy free one year validity as well as the flat rate for calls will be activated immediately with zero conditions. There are three different options when you choose Digi prepaid mobile plan; Digi Super FnF, Digi Super SMS and also Digi Super Talk. You can easily switch between all these plans anytime and you may also enjoy free activation.
Ok everything that I have mentioned so far above are just part of the fringe benefits that you will receive when you decide to switch from your mobile carrier to Digi. Lots and lots of rewards are available along the way when you join Digi. Simply say, I have come to conclusion that Digi for the time being is the best mobile phone plan service especially in terms of money saving and coverage.
Hold yourself tight for the next post because we will continue rambling more about switching to Digi and why is it good to try switching the port server. However, I would like to remind you that all of the information that I have provided here is just based on my research and therefore you may contact me if you find any flaws in this post.
Have a good weekend guys!
