For most average users (defined below) however, the Maxis BBMore88 takes a significant lead over the other existing plans. Check out the table below for more plans :

BlackBerry recently launched its latest gadget to hit the smartphone market, and that’s the BlackBerry Z10! Unlike its predecessor, this BlackBerry comes with an on-screen keyboard. Yep, the beloved QWERTY keypad is gone, folks. A quick call to Maxis also confirms that this brand new BlackBerry Z10 does not requires a BIS plan to surf the web (“normal” internet data would do), and you can now use WhatsApp Messenger with this device. Aside from these very obvious changes, this device also comes equipped with a 4.2” touch display, a 8.0 MP camera, and a 1080p HD Camera. For more information, just head on to BlackBerry’s main website here.
There are three types of plans for you to choose from, and they are the BBMore 55, BBMore88, and BBMore148. The 24-month contract is only available for BBMore88 and BBMore148. With Maxis, you can get the device at a subsidized price initially, but it might cost you way more in the long run. For more thorough information, just check our calculations of the total cost above!
We generally don’t like the high advance payment required by Maxis, but good news for Maxis One Club members, and those who have been a Maxis subscriber for more than one year, because Maxis will waive your advance payment.

If you use up to 300 minutes, 200 SMSes, and around 1 GB of data a month, then you ought to consider getting your BlackBerry Z10 with a Celcom 12-month contract. At time of writing (April 2013), Celcom gives the cheapest 12-month contract plan with its First Premier + Mobile Internet Basic 1GB. The First Premier plan is actually RM80 per month and comes with 100MB of internet data. However, the BlackBerry Z10 bundle requires you to also subscribe to the basic data plan for RM48 per month, which resulted in a RM118 total monthly plan cost!
When comparing both plans, Celcom First Prime is actually cheaper than Celcom First Premier when it comes to the monthly commitment data fee. But when you add in the phone price, and call and SMS rates into the calculation, Celcom Premier actually emerges as the overall cheapest plan for a 12-month contract.
