iPhone available to StarHub, M1 customers from Wednesday

The news is out, after looking at friends owning them and me playing and using it. =) A lot of you may already been using it.. but still its a new toy for me! SINGAPORE: StarHub will make available the iPhone to its subscribers from Wednesday. It will also offer a range of new 3G mobile plans to meet the different needs of iPhone customers for voice, SMS and data usage. iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G models will be available for free on the 3G SmartSurf Unlimited plan with a two-year contract. Altogether, four new 3G SmartSurf price plans will be introduced. Local data usage charges are capped at S$48 monthly. Customers who have pre-registered for the iPhone will be given priority. Hours after StarHub revealed plans to rollout its iPhones, M1 announced it will do the same this Wednesday.There will be four new iPhone plans offered by M1. M1 said its iPhone customers will also enjoy call benefits of unlimited free calls to three M1 numbers, per second billing and discounts of up to 35 per cent on subscription fees with the multi-line saver programme. Local data usage charges are capped at S$36.38, slightly below StarHub's rates. In July, SingTel was the first operator to launch the new iPhone 3GS. - CNA/yb * * * * * * * * And an article from Hardwarezone, rounding up of all the plans.. And it has been set in stone. All three telcos have showed their hands for the iPhone price plans. For the moment, M1 is leading the pack, with the following advantages: 1. 10GB of data usage 2. Data cap of up to $36.38 3. Lowest price plan for iPhones at $36 (Compared to Starhub's $38 and SingTel's $39 based on the lowest-end plan) For now, here's a quick round-up of the price plans. Update: We just received a statement from a SingTel spokesperson that they will announce new revised iFlexi plans within the next few days, which will be extended to new and existing iFlexi customers. Update: StarHub has just revised their price plans, bundling 12GB of data on the first three price plans instead of the original 1GB.

I actually reserved from both M1 and Starhub, and today i tell myself, the company that get back to me first, i will buy from them. (so childish! haha..) Anyway most probably i be getting the M1 iPhone Lite plan, and paying $248 for a 16GB model. (The 10GB free data really made me go wow.. ) *And Starhub just revised their data to 12GB... What a drama! Oh a Christmas present for myself..... =)
