On Tuesday, U Mobile unveiled its iPhone 6 plans with installment from as low as RM98 with U MicroCredit, the first ever device financing programme offered by Telco. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were made available yesterday at U Mobile stores nationwide.

On March 19, crowds of people were seen queuing at Berjaya Times Square from as early as 9am to purchase the iPhone from U Mobile. For Jo Liew, all the effort in waking up early and beating the morning traffic was worth it when he held the golden iPhone 6 Plus 64 GB he had longed for, along with U Mobile i60 Prepaid iPlan.

“I finally got it!” said Liew while clutching his new iPhone 6 Plus, beaming and trying to contain his excitement. “I have always wanted to get the iPhone 6 when it was launched in Malaysia, and after reading online that U Mobile is offering the iPhone 6 for prepaid users, I felt compelled to come over today to get one for myself,” Liew added. He was the first in line to purchase the iPhone 6 with U Mobile.
