    Company where I work with is using Celcom and our current corporate plan has expired. Celcom is offering us new plan so I would be getting an iPhone 6 128GB (priced at RM2.4k + 6% tax by Celcom) which I would then sell it for more than that but still below market price. Would use that money to buy Priv afterwards. And I already got a buyer for the iPhone.

    Had asked our corporate rep regarding Priv availability but still has no answer. Quite worried though as even Passport Silver Edition has yet to arrive here in Malaysia.

    I plan to get at least 3. Still figuring out the best & most cost-effective way of importing them. So far, the best I can come up with is ordering via CrackBerry Canada. There are some good Priv bundles/offers too. There are downsides though, the first being that they can only ship around 30th November... and the second, being the SIRIM & GST stuff obviously.

    So, I've yet to pull the trigger. Also, guys like Directd are usually quite quick importing new phones in.

    Trying my best to figure it all out.

    Now I'm worried about the shipment, anyone has experienced import phone from US to Malaysia? Will be taxable? GST?
    What is the best courier to shipping here? Thanks

    Just to share what I found out already. It would be nearly impossible to escape the requirement for an e-permit from SIRIM which will cost approx. RM106 (valid for up to 3 phones, per shipment). Also, GST will have to be paid on the Invoice Value + courier charges.

    Say, one were to order from CrackBerry Canada... the price is CAD899.99 plus shipping CAD93.95, totalling CAD993.94. This is approximately RM3,212.15. Add the SIRIM e-permit of RM106 and GST (6% of RM3,212.15) of RM192.73. The total sum would be... RM3,510.88 (in USD this would be approx USD820).

    Buying and shipping 3 units would bring the cost per unit down naturally, on account of the SIRIM e-permit (valid for 3 units, per shipment) and lower per unit cost of shipping. GST is GST.

    How is that cheaper? Importing it into Singapore using Vpost for example will incur Singapore GST... which is 7%!

    If and when it launches officially in Malaysia, I think the RRP will be RM3,199 including GST. My assumption is based on converted US launch price of USD699 and adding 6% GST. So, paying a premium of approx RM300 by going the direct route and getting it early.

    We feel the burn on two counts... GST, as previously mobile phones were duty exempt, and of course good ol' currency depreciation.

    Weird how this phone can be tracked to the last kilometer if you ever lose it but we can't even locate a Boeing 447 that went missing 18 months ago.

    Have you ever thought of changing telco? Maybe Celcom First Basic package perhaps. You can just MNP and retain the phone number
