After a horrendous 1 week experience with Du, i threw away my worthless Du sim card and went back to Etisalat. What's even worse is that i lost 200dhs on the non-existant 2gb du package, it's non-refundable rven as credit!

Anyway, in the process of resubscribing to my old etisalat 1gb data package i found out about this cool offer: 10gb "unlimited" data plan is available now at 99dhs, down form 395dhs. The offer is only available for 3 months but it's still awesome.
I'll probably downgrade to the 5gb data plan in September but until then: 10gb goodness!

What was wrong with the Du package?
Let me count the ways:
  • Coverage was very poor in the areas I usually hang around in. Namely, 10 minutes away from Emirates Mall and the area near Apple Bee's at SZR. These aren't out in the desert! Only exception I found was within the major malls themeselves: reception was fine there.
  • 3G was totally useless: barely got reception anywhere, and when I did it kept dropping after a few seconds. Only exception I found was within the major malls themeselves: reception was fine there.
  • The final straw: kept getting "we are experiencing difficulties" messages whenever I tried to call from home (10min away from Emirates mall) for a full day! What's even more laughable, when I switched to my etisalat sim card and called Du support, the line couldn't connect!!
  • 3G Prices are very similiar to Etisalat and that's what I care about most as I use skype to talk with friends and family abroad via 3G.
  • Horrendous support: I was informed that a team will check the SZR area and get back to me within 72 hours. 6 days later and no phone call. When I called about it, I was told that the team are "doing their best" and that I should wait for a call that will be given "as soon as possible". I thought Etisalat sucked, yeesh!
  • After applying for the 3G package for only a few days, I had no ability to get a refund if I wanted to cancel the useless thing! 200dhs + 55dhs down the toilet :rolleyes:

well you should read the fine print.

Firstly the 99 dhs package is billed from the 1st to the 1st. So if you buy the thing on the 29th, on the 31st your first month gets over (after 2 days).
nope, not true. Just dialled *144*3# and my next billing date is on... 24-Jul-10

Secondly you cant cancel it after the 3rd month. You have to use it for the 4th month (and pay the 395 dhs) and then change your package. But im not sure about this as ive spoken to 5 people from etisalat, where 3 of them agree with me and 2 dont.
the guy at the counter mentioned that I can cancel any time within the offer period, but he maybe ill informed - being an Etislut support slut and all :rolleyes:

I heard about Du coverage issues, but fig'd they'd resolved them by now, this is sad.

Someone plunged a dagger deep into God's chest

When he groaned it laid our entire civilization to rest

When he pulled out the dagger and marvelled at the pain he could create

We stuck another in his back and sealed creation's fate
