Dubai options calls/texts/data

On a 4G max plan pay monthly. Looks like can't use roaming for calls/texts/data when in UAE.

 

So what are options please? Get a data and a call/text add on total £12 per day?

 

Is there any other options? New SIM card or anything when there? Anyone done this or help please?

 

Thanks

Re: Dubai options calls/texts/data

Hi @Mr111 

 

If you are staying for some time, then I would use a local SIM. Your phone will need to be unlocked

 

Otherwise you have the add-on options you have already seen from the EE UAE roaming page

 

Lastly, if you do use your EE sim then make sure roaming is activated by texting ROAMING to 150.

 

Thanks

EE standard opening hours are 8am to 9pm weekday, 8am to 8pm on weekends.

Re: Dubai options calls/texts/data

Yeh phone is unlocked and roaming works. But to hand data and calls/txts would be £12 a day on EE. 

 

Where do you get local SIMs from when there and how much are they.
