Phone bills can feel like death threats. The routine is the same at the end of every month. First, I'm surprised to see it in the mailbox. Ripping the envelope slowly. Unfolding the paper inside gently. Gasp at the total amount required to pay. Then brainstorm ways to cut back on waste-of-money handphone habits. I enjoy gabbing with love ones or just sending adorable cat images via text.
Guilty as charge and I will do it again. Its a lifestyle that this cat lover embrace whole heartedly.

Today, I stumbled upon dontbodoh.com that reviews your phone bills for free and tells you whether you're in the smart or stupid category of Malaysian handphone users. The whole experience takes less than two minutes.
Its actually a quiz that will asses whether your current telco plan fits both your budget and lifestyle. Anyone using a Malaysian number should take this quiz.
When I say lifestyle, this refers to your internet usage per month alongside the amount of calls and texting (SMS) that you do on average.

The website will then take all that into a consideration and compare it between four mainstream telco; Digi, Celcom, Maxis or UMobile.
It then specify what type of plan you should be using out of the four telco companies mentioned above.
Results will show your current plant as to 'Veli Good' , 'Good', 'So So Jer' or 'Boo'. Mine turned out to be so so jer (while is like neither here nor there)
Ever since I subscribed to an internet plan for my phone, life has been good. I remember the days of cari free WiFi at McDonalds. Purchase sundae cone and hang around until my handphone battery is flat. This was also life before powerbank.
Now with the internet postpaid plan , I can fully utilized apps like Whatsapp and Skype. Although there are times when I accidentally left the phone to roam and that is expensive business!
Every once in a while, review your phone bills. Take full advantage of the fact that telco companies are competing for customer loyalty. We are royalties and should be treated like such.
