Celcom Axiata Berhad made available the Apple iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in Malaysia– at the stroke of midnight today.
More than 200 customers started queuing at Celcom’s flagship Blue Cube at Sunway Pyramid since Wednesday morning, braving the afternoon heat and the sudden torrential rain later at night just to be the first to get their hands on Apple’s brand new smartphones from Celcom.
The first Celcom customers to get their hands on the Apple iPhone 5s were Mohd Abdullah bin Mohd Adam and his wife Agusliali bt. Nurmansyah(picture), who had waited in line since 8am that morning. The couple, who are five months pregnant, were overwhelmed when they received both their gold iPhone 5s phones for free as a special surprise from Celcom.
At the midnight launch, Zalman Aefendy Zainal Abidin, Chief Marketing Officer of Celcom Axiata Berhad, said, “We share our customers’ excitement as the first to have the iPhone 5s and 5c, bundled with excellent Celcom First voice and data plans that will allow them to take full advantage of our lightning fast, 4G-enabled network.”
“With Celcom, new iPhone 5s and 5c users can look forward to the fastest, widest and reliable network coverage, dynamic rates and exclusive services that fit their usage perfectly and the best customer experience to make the new phones their best digital lifestyle companion in Celcom’s Fastest Territory,” Zalman added.
The first 100 customers who stood in line were also rewarded with a chance to get further discounts of up to RM500 as well as chance to get an additional official iPhone 5s or 5c cover, self-repair screen protector worth RM150, or a mystery gift.
Celcom’s Apple iPhone 5s & 5c device and plan bundles offer total savings of up to RM1,931, monthly data volumes of up to 6.2GB, monthly rebates of up to RM1,220, monthly commitments from as low as RM98 per month, and final device prices from as low as RM418 (iPhone 5s) and RM88 (iPhone 5c) after savings and rebates on 12 or 24-month contracts.
The Apple iPhone 5s and 5c is now available from Blue Cubes, Celcom branches, Celcom Exclusive Partners, and authorised dealers nationwide.
