When you begin to use your iPhone on Etisalat's GPRS system be VERY careful!
I've just got my bill for the last 2 months and I've been charged a staggering Dhs8,000 for my browsing and downloading, and believe me, I'm hardly on it. When questioned Etisalat's reply was that the iPhone is not supported by Etisalat (yet I can still use the network and be OVER charged for the privilege!) and if I want to use GPRS I should switch to a Blackberry!
Please use GPRS sparingly as iPhone users are being ripped off!
Hondamaker & jjvaldez: what's wrong with you? Everythingicafe welcomes everyone. >2500 posts between you and you still can't muster being nice to a newbie?
Joeleh & babaganooshdubai: WELCOME and please ignore those comments. Plenty of great help to be found here. As to your question, I don't know when Apple will distribute to the Middle East. Hasn't been announced yet, unfortunately.
babaganooshdubai: just saw a documentary on The World. Wow. Have you seen it?
wow seems like we have our first argument in some time... Anyway does the middle east have the tech support and all that stuff to support a phone as great as the iPhone... I bet edge would be like aol 2.0
i didn't say anything wrong to him and i as not being mean either [i said jk]
i was simply making a point that he took a risk, just like everything in life is a risk, eating to many hamburgers, drinking to much soda, crossing the street at oncoming traffic, there are many risk in life that is all that i was saying...
[i am in no way apologizing, i'm just explaining what i was talking about]
i have been racially attacked here and the super mod didn't show up to that... the argument with this lasted a few pages, super mod shows up for this?
Appreciate the welcome (from some!). I just think that "who gives a crap" isn't particularly constructive from a forum where people are genuinely looking for advice on something we are all supposed to be passionate about...Mac stuff!
As for the World, I haven't seen it but, the fallout on an eco. structure sense is visible everyday, no fish, no shells, no life! Money, the fastest growing religion in the Middle East.
