Are you traveling to the United Arab Emirates but wondering how the T-Mobile service is?

Most people traveling to UAE prefer their T-Mobile to the local SIM Cards. I have been to UAE a few times, and most of the time I used my T-Mobile.

This article will help answer this and the following questions:

  • How is T-Mobile’s service in UAE?
  • What speeds do you typically get when using T-Mobile in UAE?
  • How much will it cost you to text and call with your T-Mobile in UAE?

How is T-Mobile’s service in UAE?

T-Mobile has great coverage everywhere in UAE. I use T-Mobile with either Etisalat or Du to roam.

What are T- Mobile UAE calling and texting rates?

If you are on T-Mobile Simple plan, you get $0.25/minutes 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 would recommend getting T-Mobile International Pass for faster speeds. 

T-Mobile has three International Pass options that you can choose from:

International PassPriceTo Be Used In
1.512MB high-speed International Pass with up to LTE speeds and unlimited calling.$5/day24 hours
2.5GB high-speed International Pass with up to LTE speeds and unlimited calling.$3510 Days
3.15GB high-speed International Pass with up to LTE speeds and unlimited calling.$5030 Days

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.
