Most people traveling to UAE prefer their T-Mobile to the local SIM Cards. I have been to Dubai a few times and most of the time I used my T-Mobile.
But does T-Mobile work in Dubai?
This article will help answer this and the following questions:
- How is T-Mobile’s service in the United Arab Emirates?
- What speeds do you typically get when using T-Mobile in the UAE?
- How much will it cost you to text and call your T-Mobile in UAE?
How is T-Mobile’s service in UAE?
T-Mobile has great coverage everywhere in UAE. I used T-Mobile with either Etisalat or Du to roam.
What are T- Mobile UAE’s calling and texting rates?
If you are on T-Mobile Simple plan, you get $0.25/minute calling rates, unlimited texting, and 2G free data.
If you are on other T-Mobile plans, you can check the rates on the T-Mobile Official Website.
What data speeds do you typically get when using T-Mobile in UAE?
T-Mobile offers free 2G speed on the Simple Global plans. However, it can also be very slow.
Therefore, if you are planning to use T-Mobile data in UAE I’d recommend you get T-Mobile International Pass for faster speeds.
T-Mobile has three International Pass options that you can choose from:
|To Be Used In
|512MB high-speed International Pass with up to LTE speeds and unlimited calling.
|5GB high-speed International Pass with up to LTE speeds and unlimited calling.
|15GB high-speed International Pass with up to LTE speeds and unlimited calling.
Lastly, T-Mobile is the best option for travelers who are going on short vacations/ stays.
So, if you are going for long stays like studying or permanent stays, there are other better options for that.
