Ahmed bin Ali, vice-president, Corporate Communications, Etisalat, said, “The UAE has a hugely diverse population from across the globe. It’s our job to provide telecommunications services that meet their needs. Many people will travel abroad this summer to see friends and family. Our international roaming network enables customers to stay connected wherever they are.”

The Etisalat services include GSM Postpaid, where GSM postpaid customers can make and receive calls and SMS while travelling overseas and Wasel Prepaid Roaming, where customers can receive calls and SMS while overseas, and can make calls and send SMS in many countries that support direct roaming, including India, Pakistan, France, the UK, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt, Oman.

The call back roaming service may allow Wasel users to stay connected in countries where direct roaming is not supported by dialling +ACo-111+ACo-phone number+ACM-call.

Customers who choose 3G, GPRS and MMS Roaming can also make video calls and enjoy high-speed Internet connections on the move along with all the other 3G services in countries where 3G roaming is supported.

GPRS roaming allows customers to access the Internet and send and receive multimedia messages where networks support this technology and Etisalat’s 3G MobileCAM provides any time, anywhere access to live video footage from the cameras location, wherever 3G roaming is supported.
