Im with etisalat..been fine till.....i got a text reminding me to subscribe to get my 1GB of data usage..needed 145AED to subscribe, i left it over by a couple of days..i already had 33AED left so i topped up 150 it took the lot off me and then said i didnt have enough credit to subscribe so had to top up another 150 because customer service reckoned i had used 183 AED of internet in 3 days!! No way hozay i thought!!!! So 330AED later i ave my 1GB of data usage and still cant call or text!!! Oh my days i miss my simple UK contract lol
The 'free' minutes this is a bit of a crock... when you read the fine print, you only get to use the free minutes once your Wasel balance reaches zero. So they're kinda not free, IYKWIM.... pain in the butt as I takes ages to use up my balance. Free minutes should be just that... you get that many before they start charging. Sneaks!
I'm with Etisalat and was constantly texted to tell me that i had 74 free international minutes. So i called my dad's landline yesterday for twenty minutes, came off the phone and it wiped out about 55aed of credit!Check the terms and conditions of Everything and expect the unexpected!
I am in the UK at the mo so have taken my du sim out! I have a data package anyway but was not aware that we didn't pay for it!! I have been with du for near on 5 years!
What they mean is they were not charging you for the internet data/access used to view facebook.You will still be able to view it - you would just need to pay for the internet usage to do so.ETA - Etisalat will charge you for internet usage also.edited by Plain-Jane on 11/06/2012
Just received a text on my mobile from du telling me that as of the 13th their "FREE FB browsing promotion will end" and that to continue to be able to access FB and other websites I will have to sign up for one of their "many data bundles." Am I missing something? Surely I must be ....I've been using du on my mobile since moving here just over a year ago. Was never aware of any 'free browsing promo' -- a 12 month plus promo?!I'll be switching to Etisalat in a heartbeat if I am unable to access internet as I've been doing since I moved here.This just makes no sense. I can't be the only one getting this text. Perhaps someone can explain this to me.
