Dedicated Internet Devices

Device NamePriceSpeedTypeTelephonyDetails

Etisalat Auto-Renewal

Your active data bundle will be automatically renewed at the end of the validity period if you have enough airtime credit on your phone.

To turn-off Etisalat auto-renewal, text 'Stop' to 229. Your current data subscription will not be disabled but continue until the end of the validity period without being automatically renewed.

Data Rollover

Data Rollover allows you to ‘roll over’ any unused portions of your remaining data volumes from your subscription. Whenever you renew your subscription or subscribe to another plan before the current subscription expires, the unused portion of the remaining volume is carried forward and added to the volume of the new subscription and the validity also extended as the validity of the new subscription is added to the current subscription.

Etisalat Data Share

To Transfer data with Etisalat
Dial *229*PIN*Volume of mb*Recipient’s number#

By default your Etisalat PIN is 0000 which is the same as your share and sell PIN but you can change the PIN by dialing *247*0000*New PIN#.
Transfer between 10mb and 50mb per transaction, up to five times daily, provided you have a minimum data balance of 100mb.

Data Gifting

Buy someone a data plan, direct from your airtime. Just use the data code and add the recipient’s number.

For example, to send a 200mb data gift, dial:
*229*2*1*08091234567#

Multi-Device Plan

This is a service where a primary (or parent) SIM is cloned into up to four different secondary SIMs. These SIMs work just like the parent, and can then be inserted into different data devices in order to access the same data bundle.

Your main smartphone should be your primary device, and is used to set up other secondary devices. If you normally subscribe to an etisalat blackberry plan, we advise keeping your primary SIM in your blackberry phone.
To complete the process, you’ll need new, non-activated sims (which must be data SIMs). Make sure you make a note of your PUK (personal unlocking code) from the SIM card frame.

To opt in:

Dial *215*pin*1*newnumber*newpuk# OR
Text 'add newnumber,1,PIN,newpuk' to 215
For subsequent SIM, replace ‘1’ with ‘2’, ‘3’ or ‘4’
The PIN is the personal security code of the main (primary) SIM. Default PIN is 0000
Please make a note of your PUK (personal unlocking code) from the SIM card frame of every secondary SIM.

Check Data Balance

For Etisalat data plan text 'Bal' to 228 or dial *228# to get information about data usage
