The ready recreation has struck Malaysia ever because the first loopy line for the iPhone 4. Insanity ensued throughout all telcos who’ve by no means braved such mammoth crowds once they first began. However now Malaysians are utilising totally different means to get their arms on their a lot beloved Apple smartphones, and it doesn’t all the time contain queuing up from dawn.

It’s protected to say that each one the telcos have steadily firmed up their expertise to deal with the looming military that waits passionately for their iDevices. So what do these consumers courageous when ready in line? Properly that each one relies upon on the place they're:

Celcom has their Blue Dice setup at Sunway Pyramid, an outside space that would spell rain for those that select that location. Foreseeing a slightly moist event, Celcom has once more raised some canopies to battle the prospect of torrential downfall and to usually maintain their clients cozy. Meals and drinks have been served right here for those that needed to get their palms on a Celcom iPhone. Frankly, we expect it seems to be like a carnival.

Digi on the opposite hand selected to carry their launch at their SS2 department, which suggests rain is more likely to damper hopes of the individuals in queue as properly. This yr they’ve enlisted assist from some meals vans (for free meals) and gave out numbers (for those that queued), to allow them to linger round until 11:45 pm earlier than heading again to the road. The night time in SS2 is sort of bustling so there’s no scarcity of issues to maintain you entertained when you wait.


U Cellular takes benefit of their HQ in Berjaya Occasions Sq., which makes it indoors (properly sort of, underneath the large cowl of Time Sq.’s front foyer) and protected from any climate circumstances which may happen in our unpredictable local weather. Those that have a candy tooth would definitely take pleasure in the Krispy Kreme doughnuts and occasional offered by the telco.


Maxis all the time has theirs at KLCC, this time across the line begins outdoors the precise promoting flooring however drinks and finger meals was offered to these in line, whereas there have been extra choices when you headed inside. The (pre-order solely) line right here hasn’t fairly constructed up but, probably which means that the majority of their clients opted for the supply/decide up option.

Right here’s a break down of all of the telco plans in contrast for those that aren’t already in line.

Now that we’re talked about how the wait for the units have been throughout all 4 telcos, let’s speak about what Malaysians might be preferring to do as an alternative. Scalpers get excited on the alternative to jack costs up, if there’s demand.

Are Malaysians selecting to purchase from these people as an alternative? Or have they determined to go on over to Singapore to get their arms on an SG set? It boils right down to in case you’re going to be disciplined sufficient to journey again to our neighbours down south for your guarantee, if something have been to occur to your Apple product. For scalpers, its primarily right down to luck, or if you are going to buy from locations like Lazada, we’ll hope that they fulfill their finish of offering guarantee protection.
