  1. I wanted ask that any1 can take extra classic package or it’s only for VIP as it was in da case of Mobily that’s raqi

  2. prepaid at a later date? when? when iPhone 6 arrives. This is failure…

  3. how about in Al Khobar? any locations?

  4. When will the prepaid package will be launched….

  5. The question guys is, can the facetime feature be enabled on future firmware updates? Its sad coz if an iphone 4 has no facetime, as I understand that means video calling for all apps are disabled as well, yahoo voice calls and skype right? The deal is good better than most offers but without facetime or a disabled VOIP iphone 4 will be like an iphone 3g only…

    • Hey Brian,
      i got my Iphone from Mobily last week, i am using Skype, Fring, Tango & the good thing is i can you use video calling in that even with face time disabled, so that mean only face time function is not there but u can use any other app like i mention above to have video calling,
      Enjoy..

  6. As expected! went to Palestine Road branch in Jeddah @ 11.30am & they said it is finished
    What a joke !
    inaddition to that only one package is available which is 99 per month with the maximum advance

  7. DO THEY HAVE IN PRINCE SULTAN ROAD…

      From jeddah here. I went on 3 branches one in tahlia one in amir sultan and one in khalidiya. All except in amir sultan said its finished and I should try again tomorrow (monday). The on in sultan I went during prayer and the salesmen were outside smoking I asked one of them in english if they have it on stock they said its finised. And then i overheard him talking in arabic with a friend on a phone saying why you did not tell me earlier, yalla come and drop by here we have it. It seems the salesmen prioritize their friends and familes before us customers. btw only the basic package are available and only 32GB.
      @Sameer thanks so much for the very useful info. I really want the STC deal though but if I cant find one tommorow, its mobily for sure. Good luch iphone 4 hunting everyone.

  8. I just got mine from STC . the number finished @ 9 AM. I was in AlTahliyah Sales Office and precessing was very slow ( I took number @ 8 AM and I got IPhone around 3 PM 🙁 ).

    I think you can wait for Iphone 5 if you are not hurry 🙂 .

  9. factory unlocked or factory locked??
    because i think stc not official like mobily http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1937.

  10. i’m an expat and i want to avail iphone – extra classical bundle for the iphone, what would be the requirements, are paper works involved?

  11. Did anybody able to get the phone with one of the subscription plans without the  registration beforehand?

  12. Is the Prepaid iPhone 4 16 GB or 32 GB models now available? I want the prepaid version as I will go back to home country. Can anyone tell me if the prepaid versions are now available and where I can buy it.

    Shukran,

    Bertolini
