Received them automagically on a Nokia 3110 Classic - which is a somehwat odd Nokia model.

In all I found the UAE - compared to Oman, Iran horrendously expensive with their data.

Need to be well prepared in equipment and skills not to spend too much on their prepay data deals.

50 Mb packages are nothing nowadays, specially on 3,5G.

I used the Nokia 3110c so it can't go faster than EDGE, explicitly using slower technology to save bandwidth.

Oman had a nice flat-fee prepay deal with Nawras. So much different from the UAE.

Yes, it is cheaper, I hope it would be good too.

Very true. U.A.E is ripoff.
