Data 

Postpaid: Roaming data is enabled by default at the standard pay per use roaming rate at AED1/50KB. However, we recommend buying a Roaming Data Pack to save on data costs and control usage. GCC pay per use data rate will be 4.77/MB (50KB/0.2329AED) and you can subscribe Easy Roaming data bundles.

Prepaid: Roaming data is disabled by default, and you need to dial *135*20# once abroad to either buy a Roaming Data Pack, or activate roaming data pay per use at AED1/30KB (you will need to reactivate it every 24 hours). GCC pay per use data rate will be 4.77/MB (30KB/0.1397AED) and you can subscribe Easy Roaming data bundles.

GCC rate: Post and Pre data pay per use rate will be 4.77/MB
