XOX xinxun

I am fortunate that my previous & current company had given me a mobile phone for my usage....
I have never paid for my usage of mobile phone for 10 years now...
Of course it was meant for business.... but sad to said that sometime I use it for some personal usage ...
I never know how much I spent on it and my boss didn't say that I overspent...
I am very cautious on my calls
As they say that if you miss use the company privileges and it is either you pay for it or the company will take back the privileges..



Since there is a spare Ip3 phone in the house and I decided to get a new line for my personal usage ..
at least it is separate between work and personal...

Last week I was at Paradigm mall and my wife suggest to get the Digi prepaid..
It only cost RM8.50 and we just register it...
Then I realized that their internet package is expensive..

RM30/mth for 600MB or RM8 daily...
Hmm I don't need so much of data package..
Well as for me I just want to contact my friends via calls, sms & whatsapp
Sometime browse on internet.. I am a light user..
Besides that my house has streamyx and I could use Wifi...

Then my friend introduce me to XOX and said that they had a new prepaid package...
They offer 15 numbers for your frequent caller ..
The internet package start from RM18/mth for 300 MB..
I think it is a good deal for me...
Hop on to XOX
XOX is using celcom service provider...
So far the call connection is OK and the internet 3G line is stable too...
I have no complaint  so far...

Now I have a monthly commitment of minimum of RM18 + calls (depends on how much I will use)...
Just some estimate calculation ..
Internet - RM18/mth for 300MB
Phone calls - RM12/mth for 66 mins (18sens per min)
Total = RM30/mth (hope that there is no any hidden charges....)

It comes out to RM360/year.... a new overhead cost for me...
hmmm ...is it a wise choice or not?

Well if I am not happy with it then I could terminate the service and hop on to another service provider and I still could keep the same number...
Rather than getting a new number and start to inform all my friends that I had another new number...

Do you know any other cheaper plans than this?

    1. eih, RM30 a month is very very little for phone bills lah.. means, you spend RM1 less a day only.. eat less lah, sure you can afford that RM30 lah.. don't buy drinks outside, go back home or office to drink water~~ :D

    2. i think there are many plans out there, not very competitive lah.. most probably you just pay for data and then you are given voice calls for free.. your current plan is good enough i would say, but for me 300MB is probably not enough, haha~~ :D

    3. anyway, i think it's wise to separate your personal and company line lah.. you don't mix and make a mess with it..

    4. I carry 3 lines and very pening lah, always mixed up. I may need the 4th line soon.

    3. My company pays bills for certain level employees.

      But won't pay for data charges and GPS.

      Every month they scrutinise bills one. Crazy.

    1. So, when I call these 3 numbers, and the rest of my colleagues who signed up for the same package, no charge at all. Means, free. 4 lines, I only need to pay RM40 per month.

  10. Bananaz considered quite lucky in my last company who is very generous got car with toll, petrol & maintenance unlimited, handphone bills all taken care off by company. Even then gotta used them consciously strictly with no abuses thus maintaining integrity at all times. Company also close one eye if we do use on personal matters where its negligible. Love your cartoon..company's policy huh haha. Sorry do not have much knowledge of internet package but somehow XOX look's OK if you are not a heavy user. Bananaz got no data plan depending only on wifi in his SOHO.

  11. Very cheap compared to mine.. hahaa.. come to think of it.. ok, i used prepaid digi RM30 each month (sometimes overuse one) RM33 for Day use Digi Broadband (3gb) RM66 for streamyx wifi plus RM10 for the local/outstation calls too... how much will that be just for "perhubungan?" *pengsan*

  13. ooo, you're quite responsible with your phone usage. i also feel fortunate that my company has paid for my phone bill since 1999 (!!!), but nowadays, the company is not as financially profitable as before, so we're asked to cut back on our usage as much as possible =)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm very loyal to DIGI ga wor... coz my monthly bill is only about 60 - 70 per month... not exceed 80 with unlimited data also.. hehehe...

  15. I really don't know much about prices of such packages. I have been using Celcom and their package for donkey years and quite happy though.

    ReplyDelete
  16. goodluck :) I wish you get the best service you need and not have to switch to another provider...enjoy communicating with people you love :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. The calling rate is cheaper than my rate but the data rate is more expensive. I guess it depends on which one you use more. :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sorry I can't suggest any... But I think what you have now is a good deal...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wah! You hadn't not paid your own telephone usage for 10 years. Lucky you! Guess you are one excellent employee at the same time. Hahaha.. Never heard XOX before. Maybe not yet reach Sabah yet.

  24. Thanks for the intro, think I might get that plan for my kids since they asked for data plan (and we already have wifi at home). A light plan sounds good, then!

  27. i use lousy phone only... with digi prepaid, if you paid for this option called "Super long life", your phone will not expire for a year from the date you subscribe. my phone bill is less than rm20 per month, with calls and smses to frequent callers are registered under the frequent callers number option.

    ReplyDelete
  28. For myself, I'm using Digi prepaid. Hardly spend money for calling.. the most is I'm using for sms. Soon I'm going to change smart phone which connected with data plan. Going to spend more $$$ on my phone. Sometimes i'm thinking overhead, but without smart phone friends been labeling me "OUTDATED" I'm in dilemma now.. whether I should change or not.. It's not that i can't afford for smart phone, buying it's easy but I need to commit with 12/24 mths contract. Hhhmm...

  29. Celcom XOX . . . for me sucks la, I loyal to Digi 1 XD
