As many now know, Pokémon Go is a phenomenon that is sweeping the country. To take advantage of this latest trend, U Mobile has offered its subscribers the chance to win an iPhone 6s by playing the game. This campaign will run from 10th (today) to 23rd August 2016.

In total, up to ten iPhone 6s will be up for grabs, along with postpaid and predit credits worth RM42,000. There will also be powerbanks given to the winners of this contest, which U Mobile has named “Power-Up for Pokémon Go”.

To further enhance its user base’s Pokémon Go experience, U Mobile will be adding free data quotas, ranging from 3GB for its Power Prepaid to 30GB for Hero Postpaid P98 users. The local telco company will also be setting up lures during this contest period, which will increase the number of players at selected Pokéstops. The locations will be available to U Mobile customers via U Mobile’s social media channels. Also, starting from 10th August 2016 to 10th September 2016, discounts for Uber rides will be offered to U Mobile customers, so that they can get to the Pokéstops or Gyms faster.


Below is how U Mobile customers can participate in the ‘Power-Up for Pokémon Go’ Contest:
