Total Access Communication (DTAC) plans to become the top iPhone seller in 12 months after its kick-off event this past weekend at Siam Paragon saw sales of 1,897 units, almost double the target.
DTAC yesterday started offering 3G and 3GS models and three service options nationwide at 49 of its service centres, 29 iStudios, five Jay Marts and five TG Fones.
Chief commercial officer Thana Thienachariya said DTAC hoped to sell at least 100,000 iPhones this year.
True Move, the first to bring in iPhones, is targeting sales of 120,000 units this year, both 3G and 3GS models, up from 100,000 last year.
It has deployed all its telecom services – from cellular to wireless Internet and digital content, including its 3G wireless broadband network – to support iPhone sales.
DTAC is pricing its iPhones at Bt19,900 for an 8-gigabyte 3G, Bt24,500 for a 16GB 3GS and Bt28,500 for a 32GB 3GS.
If users sign up for an S, M or L monthly airtime package, they will receive a better price: Bt18,900 for the 8GB 3G, Bt22,900 for the 16GB 3GS and Bt26,400 for the 32GB 3GS.
For example, the S package costs Bt449 a month for 225 minutes of voice calls, 200 SMSs, 30 MMSs and 100 megabytes of data calls. Users will receive a free bonus of three months after nine months.
