Dear Sir,
Good Evening, I would like to express my dissatisfactory here for the poor service provided by Maxis Service Center in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail (TTDI). The incident was, I went for this maxis center to sign up iphone 4 ivalue plan and there a man who believe was a boss for the maxis center TTDI told that, the stock for Iphone4 have been finished and I had to wait another day to get it. However, he mentioned he has “another solution” in order to get the iphone 4 immediately by today, and then he directed me to another staff for the explanation of “another solution”. I am pleased to be seated by the staff and the staff explained to me in fact, the solution was I have to sign up for the maxis broadband products in order to get the iphone4 successfully. I reverted back to the staff why did I need the broadband products since I already had Broadband service by my own. The staff told that, the iphone4 is limited to 20 units out per day and already out of stock early on that day. But he said he can issue a new iphone4 for me provided that I have to sign up for their broadband product in order to fulfill their broadband sales target for their branch. The staff added on, I may have cooling-off period of 7 days for the broadband product. I am totally frustrated and questioned why they can’t issue a new iphone4 for me since they still have stock instead of “re-package” for me.

    I am writing this comment with utter dissapointment with Maxis Broadband services. Last week(18 Nov), due to reasons only known to Maxis, the internet connection to my residence got disconnected. I called up the voice operted system and managed to get thru to a customer service officer and I have duly informed the officer of the situation and a report was lodged and I was given the number for reference. I was told that the techincal team will get back to me soonest. After waiting for more than 24 hours, I called back Maxis hotline and again I was promised by the officer that the technical team is looking into it and will revert to me. Again 24 hours later, I called and this time customer service officer requested for an appointment date for the technician to call over at my residence to check on the internet connectivity and to my dismay, the only available date for the technician to urn up at my residence was on a weekend(Sunday, 24 Nov) at 9.30am. finally around 10am, a technician appeared at my door step and tried to troublsehoot but wasn't sure so he had to call up another colleague who came by half an hour later, he too could not figure out the situation and they finally dei=cided to check the junstion box situated at a far end of some corner of my housing estate. Almost an hour later, they managed to get the line fixed and the reason givenwas that some other technician from TM may have inadvertently pulled out the internet connection to my residence . I was shocked to hear this reason and I maintained my calmness. It was almost 1 week later they managed to get internet connection resolved. Als, my joy of getting the internet to work was shor lived, barely 24 hours later the internet got disconnected(25 Nov) and I have thusfar made 4 phone calls and a report number at hand and no technician is seen at anywhere at site. at the pint of my writing this comment, it is still status quo and Maxis has no courtesy of updating on the status of report. I am planning to loge an official complain to the Multimedia Commission on the filthy customer service and porr internet connection.

    Very poorly trained staff with arrogant and unfriendly attitude. Maybe this is their core value since they are now leading the market share. Very disappointed after using the line for 12 years with good record of payment. Convert to digi immediately after being mistreat at Maxis Sunway yesterday. No action being taken to the staff even after complaint.

    Hi maxis.. im very unstatisfy with your survice about internet connection.. My house is at Bertam Perdana, Kepala Batas is sometimes out of connection and very slow even though that area is not a rural area. I have been using maxis for about 9 years and within that years, maxis services become more terible. Hopefully maxis will improve services expecially in internet data connection for future uses.

    Maxis is offering to One Club Member RM599 package deal for purchase Samsung Galaxy S3. I went to Maxis centre to purchase in Alor Setar, Penang and Ipoh, but all branches is out of stocks since 9 June until today 20 June 2012. The offer last date is 24 June 2012. Maxis company should publish in newspaper to inform customers that this model is out of stocks. I have make a complaint but what i get is a reference number C11412230. For what the number is given to me? I want an answer why the model is out of stock during promotion, NOT a 9 digit number.

    Lots of people saying that they already used MAXIS for a very long time but they don't know that their being "fool" by MAXIS...why...maybe you will say why I am saying like that...correct ??? so I will explain and reveal all
    and i called it " THE SHOCKING TRUTH PART"
    and this is the reading material for you to read so you can be sure about the product.and also you can
    see by your self at :
    so after you read and do your calculation you will become "OPEN MINDED"
    and also I want to explain a little bit more :
    that in this program you don't worry coz this is real promo from us to a few selected customers.
    The Benefit are like these :
    1. you get 10 RM Cashback/ month whole one year that mean 120 RM a year for you.
    2. you get upto 30 % Discount from your monthly bill.
    e.g : if your bill 50 RM a month you only pay 40 coz you get 10 Rm rebate.
    if 150 RM [protected]% = 95 RM)

    actually there are 3 stages of discount
    10 % = 60 RM - 79 RM
    20 % = 80 RM - 149 RM
    30 % = 150 and above it

    10% Automatic Discount
    - Total monthly usage: RM60 - RM79.99
    - 13.5 sen/min Voice Call
    - 10.8 sen/SMS

    20% Automatic Discount
    - Total monthly usage: RM80 - RM149.99
    - 12 sen/min Voice Call
    - 9.6 sen/SMS

    30% Automatic Discount
    - Total monthly usage: RM150 and above
    - 10.5 sen/min Voice Call
    - 8.4 sen/SMS

    And all of discounts we also add 10 RM cashback a whole one year.
    and about the discount as long as you use celcom.
    so if you count you can save more, have a wider coverage and network.
    also we do not have CONTRACT
    we do not have PINALTY
    we do not have DEPOSIT

    so isn't great deal for you ????
    so I meant if you can get more than your previous provider why not, right ???

    your MAINLINE GET 40 HOURS+3000 sms/MONTH
    If you have SUBLINE number also your sub also have advantages such as :
    40 hours FREE TALKING EVERY MONTH and 3000 SMS.Every Month only 15 RM.Also your SUBLINE can also become MAINLINE and get the same benefits like your MAINLINE
    Staying absolutely together with your loved ones doesn't come with a high price

    Total Payable Bill after automatic discount RM111
    (RM150 - RM39) RM150 RM150

    Last you can imagine by your self with your usage every month
    e.g : (200 RM - 10 RM cash back - 30 % Disc = 130 RM, your saving 70 RM )
    (300 RM - 10 RM cash back - 30 % Disc = 200 RM, your saving 100 RM ),
    SO with your ammount every month you only have to pay less...correct...?? :)
    than we also have lots of rewards for you, please you see by your self at :
    Also I give you an important Clue :

    those are all that I want to inform you for detil you can look by your self to our website that I already gave you at above

    Note : If you go to Celcom by your self you only can get to convert but you will not get the rebate and discount like I mentioned to you, also you have to pay register fee 20 RM and the SIM CARD will be charge to you.
    If you have set your mind please give me your reply A.S.A.P
    And if you still have any questions please don't hesitate to ask me. thanx

    Here some tips for you for you get more about it

    Best Regards,
