Pay only AED70 for activation fee and you will get a SIM plus a free AED20 recharge card to use straightaway. That is a mobile prepaid service for visitors to UAE from DU, a new telecommunications service provider in UAE. In UAE, visitors only have two mobile phone providers to choose from. So, I am providing a table of comparison in between package being offered by both company for visitors to UAE.
|Start up Cost||AED 90 with free AED35 recharge card||AED70 with free AED20 recharge card|
|Calls to all national mobiles and landlines||0.50 / min||1 fils per second|
|National SMS||0.30 / SMS||30 fils per message|
|International SMS||0.90 / SMS||90 fils per message|
|National MMS||0.45 / MMS of 50 KB||45 fils per 50kb message|
|International Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) to selected destinations||1.80 / MMS of 50 KB||180 fils per 50kb message|
|National Video Calls||0.75 / min||1 fils per second|
|International Video calls to selected destinations||3.50 / min||7 fils per second|
|Validity Period||90 days-Non-renewabl||90 days Renewable|
So, by looking at the table, the difference is not much and you can make the choice according to your requirement.
