DST announced the release of various package plans for the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at prominent DST branches nationwide yesterday, with the main launch held at DST’s Yayasan branch.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are available to new and existing PRIMA and EASI customers when they sign up for DST’s iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus package plans.
Present to officiate the event was Abdul Lattif bin Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Setia Dato Paduka Haji Md Yusuf, a member of DST’s Board of Directors. Also in attendance were DST’s CEO, Suhaimi Hussain, and DST’s senior management staff.
DST is offering an iPhone 6 16GB handset with 4G LTE PRIMA for PRIMA subscribers for as low as $220 upfront under the $85 Contract Plan, which runs for a period of 24 months (where terms and conditions apply). Other package plans are also available to compliment customers’ preferences.
New EASI subscribers will also enjoy attractive deals under the 4G EASI Mobile Starter pack package, which comes with free reward of 1GB local data valid for 30 days upon activation (within one week from date of purchase) on iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus Package Plans.
Existing EASI subscribers signing up for the DST iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Package deals may enjoy free sim card upgrade to 4G sim card and will be rewarded with free 2GB of local data, valid for 30 days.
Customers are also able to purchase iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus ‘box sell’ models available at all DST Incomm branches.
Speaking with the Bulletin yesterday was Miss Lee, who queued up as early at 9am at DST’s Gadong Properties branch to get hold of both the iPhone 6 (16GB) and iPhone 6 Plus (16GB) models at the same time.
“My current phone is the iPhone 4, and after the recent (Apple) updates, I find it more practical to just purchase the new iPhone handsets. And after doing some research online, I found the iPhone 6 suits my lifestyle the best,” she chimed.
Another happy customer, Liew Shiou Yin, said that her previous iPhone was the iPhone 4S. Skipping the iPhone 5, she toyed with Android instead and found it more “challenging” to use.
She admitted that the iPhone models have a “simpler” interface and the screen is top-notch. However the reason she opted for the iPhone 6 (16GB) was the attractive price and package plans offered by DST.
Hj Abd Hamid, a retiree, also jumped from iPhone 4 straight to the iPhone 6 because of the bigger screen, thinner body and powerful features. “I guess it was time for an upgrade, and with DST package deals, it was an easy choice. I not only paid a low price for the handset, but the PRIMA plan makes it cost-efficient as well,” he noted.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are available at all DST outlets except DST Rimba. For more information on the iPhone 6 models, visit DST’s website at www.dst-group.com or www.apple.com/iphone.
