  1. interesting.. but the prices are still too high!

    • Same prices as STC. yeah, one of them needs to reduce

    • they say competition is good for consumer, but market is tighly controlled and with same prices (Mobily vs STC) we the consumer aren’t benefiting :(.

    • this is nonsense its so expensive im charging only 20 riyals to turns any sim in to a microsim and if i mess up your sim card i pay you 100 riyals

    • Hello…i do not know anything about shops  or centres in Saudi Arabia where to buy Micro SIM card for ·G services for an IPAD2..
      Can anyone give several adress in Ryhad where to buy this SIM-CARD, if possible prepaid, compatible with IPAD 2 32Gb WIFI+3G of APPLE???Do the staff of shop install the SIM – CARD in the IPAD2, or this is an operation to be done by the customer????
      Thankyou veru much…….

  2. Don’t Blame STC & Mobily.
    Blame CITC (citc.gov.sa), they approve\reject “ANY” new services or price changing in communication sector in KSA.

  3. Wait, do I need this in order for the iPad 3G to work? Or I can do away without it? 

  4. does Mobily sell the ipad along with the new micro SIM  card ?
    if the yes , how much for it? 

  5. Did mobile really released the iPad mini sim?

    I got the iPad 3G but I had no idea they released it already. Is anyone using it?

  6. I am using mobily 3G microsim. 100 riyal 1GB package. It works fine with good speed. I purchased it in khobar. Using it on my 64GB 3G+Wifi iPad. I can’t imagine using my iPad without microsim.

    • Brother Adnan, would you please explain how did you configure/set Mobily Micro SIM in your iPad ? I did get the micro sim, but i didn’t work ! I got full covarage signal in my iPad with mobily 3G logo, but no internet connection! I keep getting the message” celleular data error – no internet connectivity” althouhg i called mobily and the confirmed the SIM is activated !

      Any help would be appreciated,
      Thanks

    • Which shop did you buy it from in Khobar. I went to Mobily in Rashid Mall and they said they have never had the micro sim cards in stock.

      Thanks.

  7. Asem, Sorry for the Late Reply….. U have to do 2 things….1) Goto settings…and then goto Cellular Data….in Cellular Data page….make sure…”Celluar Data is ON”….. 2) Now select the APN Settings…..and put APN as web2 (for prepard connection) and web1 (for postpaid connection)….

    I hope this will work insha Allah… Take care….Regards, Adnan Rahim

  8. Hey folks. i have spare iPad Wifi 16GB .. i bought 2 one for my self and for my wife however mrs prefer laptop… .. available to pick up from riyadh.. anybody interested please let me know.

    thanks

  9. Where can i buy the micro-sim in Riyadh? Can i buy it for GSM as well?

  10. hey khaled.. 
    i was wondering if you know that stc did release a normal micro sim ?

  11. I’m getting an iPhone 4 today (from canada), and I plan to use it back in ksa…. The only problem being the microsim. Will mobily offer the microsim on a prepaid account (I.e. No data) or is it restricted to the above bundles? Will they offer to transfer the contents of your old sim (number, contacts, etc….)? I would ask myself, but I was overseas when this was announced. Thanks in advance.

  12. I need to use my normal sim on iphone4. Will mobily provide me with the same number on a micro sim. Does anyone here have any experience in this????
