DiGi’s Another Lie (DiGi Twitter SMS Service)

I also got no idea why my blog had became DiGi Hate Blog already….
But im still using DiGi, cos i still think other Telco is not as best as DiGi.
Just like why im still using streamyx while its sux till max.

This service “LOOKS” Great. (Cos the bird is cute)
And i signed up once i saw that on their website
(http://www.digi.com.my/whatshot/promotions/twittersms/index.do)

But see how DiGi treat me……

Lets have a walkthrough

1, I signed up.

*2* After finish register, i wait for my timeline tweets to arrive via SMS. Till the time i writing this post, i receive NONE OF THEM! NOT a single message for it…

3. Then I tried to send out my 1st tweet from the service.

4. But….. #FAIL

Without further waiting i called customer service. (Nope i use D’Chat instead cos i can keep a record of the conversation easily.)
And the D’Chat is not working well on Google Chrome…
OH MY GOD…. kennot type “T” and some other letters.

Below is the conversation log:

You read it?
And the CS of DiGi as well clear some of my questions about this service.

Basically this service charge you RM1/week for sending you sms when u receive a tweet in your timeline (BUT THE CAKE IS A LIE)
And charging you RM0.10 per tweet you send out via SMS (Which is another lie!)

OK.
Time to do some maths. (And assume everything work well)
Cost to send a tweet via DiGi Twitter SMS Service is RM0.10 + RM1.00 per week
Cost to send a tweet via GladlyCast is also RM0.10 (For DiGi Prepaid Customer) and RM0/06 for DiGi Prepaid Campus customers.

So if you dont need to check your tweet every single second (While the promise is a lie, means u dont got to do so anyway), why dont use GladlyCast? Its much more cheaper!

GladlyCast: the service is free but u pay for the bill to SMS to a maxis number.
Thats all!

Forget about the DiGi Twitter SMS Service.
Its a lie.

    Wait, as far as I can see (& read), DiGi didn’t ‘promised’ you anything, nor did they renege on anything. how is this a lie?

      if you read the conversation, i supposed to receive sms whenever my twitter timeline is updated right?
      But i didnt receive any. and they say i can tweet via SMS. but i cant do so.

    If you want the tweet via sms thingy so badly, you can try other option. v-club.com – offer the feature you looking for, not free tho, but it works… or even better try 2gthr.com free sms post to ur twitter and fb too. hmmm i think celcom got the rm1/week too, i think my gf used it, not sure what it called tho.

    • joshuatly April 28, 2010 at 11:46 pm #

      vclub is expensive.
      and i still prefer gladlycast.
      u can try it too!
