Expensive SMS

If you have been courted to subscribe for the SMS service from Mobile 365 Asia Sdn Bhd, please be careful of their rates and number of SMSes that may be sent/received. Though their business plan/potential under the mobile messaging and data services seems very good, that's for them as a business entity. But for consumers/users like us, it's better to be aware of it.Just at the bottom of the picture above, there is this statement:-
*Bonus realtone is for free. Bonus realtone will be sent the first week of subscription. After this the costs are RM 4.00 per msg incl. GST, 3 msg per week, 1 content item per sms. (RM 12.00 per week) Standard operator SMS/WAP/GPRS charges apply. Start up: standard message fee applies. Min. age 18+ with bill payers permission. Helpdesk: 1800 813682 (9am-5pm,Isn-Jum). Celldorado operates according to the Malaysian code of conduct for SMS services. Celldorado offers innovative information and entertainment for your mobile, such as ringtones, Javagames and wallpapers.

If you were not careful, you could be paying RM12.00 per week under their subscription service. Caveat emptor!
