iPhone 4 price in Saudi Arabia

Update on 12 February 2011: Here are STC’s iPhone 4 prices.

Update (September 26 2010): Here are Mobily’s official iPhone 4 prices.

Apple’s policy with their hardware prices is simple: release new products at the same price as the previous generation. iPhone 3GS was sold at the same price of the iPhone 3G. The iPhone 4 will cost the same as the iPhone 3GS.

When Mobily launched the iPhone officially in Saudi Arabia in February 2009 the high end iPhone 3G 16GB was sold for 2,800SR for prepaid and 2,650SR for postpaid 99.

With the iPhone 3GS, Mobily sold the prepaid iPhone 3GS 32GB for 2,999SR (a small increase) but the postpaid 99 still cost 2,650SR.

We expect that the iPhone 4 from Mobily (and possibly Saudi Telecom Company or Zain) will be sold for 2,650SR with postpaid 99.

iPhone 4 will most likely be unlocked unless Apple changes the information in this support document.

Apple will not sell the different colored iPhones at different prices. Unlike Nokia that sold the black E75 for 400SR more than a red E75 at their official Saudi stores! I am not even sure which one was higher.

About Khaled A.


  1. i agree the main idea u said about the markting ???

    but i am really disappoitment once i see the iphone its dont bring a new vs. the nexus one so i bought google untill appple make a new genertion as it mean

  2. much better same price aportable!!

  3. Mohammed Gibran

    Lol… Nokia is really funny…. Prices differ on the basis of colour….
    Ya hopefully iPhone 4 should cost the same price as the 3gs… 🙂

  4. I guess I would go for HTC EVO 4G  coz Android is growing faster than any other OS & it is much more amusing BUT I cant deny that The Iphone rules

  5. (cry)
    I want it but I can’t because I’ve 3gs
    it is wanderfull

  6. if HTC EVO wont work here, then HURRAY Iphone

  7. iphone 4 supports only the microsim, does this available in saudi arabian operators?

  8. what will be the price of iphone 4 in Saudi Arabia

  9. It can’t be locked. According to CITC it is illegal to sell locked phones in Saudi Arabia.

  10. If I get iphone4, can I use 3GS and 4 with the same backups also can I purchase one app and use it on both the phones? I know it works between ipad and iphone, but how about buying one app and having them on two different models of iphone. 

    • Yes, you can use one back-up that is if you used iOS 4.0 in backing up your 3GS phone then sync it up with iPhone 4. And to answer your last question, Yes you can sync all your apps to all your iphones.

  11. i talked with a mobily executive, and he told me that the ipad is coming to saudi arabia in a few months (1 to 3 months) and it will cost 400sr-300sr cheaper then the ipads sold in other stores like axiom and extra or jarir. and he told me that the iphone 4 is coming to saudi arabia a few months after september (like 2 to 5 months). it wil be the same price point as before (same as you guys speculated) but he told me that mobily is considering to change the prices and contracts a bit because of facetime so they might want to integrate it (but thats highly unlikely in my opinion).
     PS i found this mobily executive in rashid mall talking to one of his friends in axiom, so i jumped in and asked him, he was around his 30’s and knew what he was talking about, he had an iphone 3gs 32gb actually.
    hope this helps! 

  12. I was waiting for this for a lot of time and it’s finally here but i may not get it from saudi arabia because i’ll get from USA so i was wondering if i buy it before it comes to saudi arabia will anything bad happen to my iphone 4

    • Bad thing that will happen? It will be locked to AT&T and for as long as the DEV Team will be uncertain for the unlock software, you won’t be able to use your iPhone 4 here in Saudi Arabia 😉 Just my cent!

  13. The prices sucks in here….i would rather order from outside and jailbreak it…..A beta version is already out even before the official launch of iphone 4.

  14. hello i am Iranian do you think i can buy an iphone 3GS or 4 from there without paying monthly fee??
    i mean with that low prepayments !?

  15. Mr. Khaled do you have any information about when it will be released @ mobily store ? 

  16. that’s my question too !!

  17. when iphone4 lunch in saudi?

  18. Please Answer Khaled !!!

  19. hello i am Iranian do you think i can buy an iphone 3GS or 4 from there without paying monthly fee??
    i mean with that low prepayments !?

    i mean to buy with a low prepayment ad return to iran without paying monthly fee ??
    anybody knows ??

  20. Khaled do you know ?

  21. hello
    i thought of buying an iphone 3GS and iam in a hurry should i wait for iphone 4 or just get the iphone 3gs and whats the difference between those two ?

  22. Its already in Kuwait 299 Kd for 16gb

  23. When will it be in the Mobily Stores?

  24. @ghurir. Where it is available in kuwait?? I tried many places and finally managed to make a pre-order from an online portal http://www.aido.com. But I failed to find any store here in Kuwait. 

    • I live in UK but im here in saudi arabia for my vacation. Over there it cost about £600 – £700 which makes about SR 4000. I tried buying online and found this AIDO.com but is it  genuine. I mean no one has ever heard about them and it can be a scam too. let me know if you get your iphone 4 and your money doesn’t go down the drain.

  25. Thats right, I am also hearing aido.com for the first time. But they seems pretty reasonable. I googled about them and found interesting articles on gulfnews ( Dubai based news paper). They are giving the best price for iPhone, others are totally rip off. I called up their customer service and they guided me how to place the order. Website contains contact number and their office location. A Pretty cool service, I will use them again. 

  26. Hi guys i have seen ur comments above…if u need an iphone 4 in saudi Arabia at reasonable price with factory sealed packaging you can contact me at h_funky@hotmail.com

  27. i just got a newsletter from jarir bookstores, they advertising the iphone 4 as “coming soon”, i wonder if this phone would be factory unlocked or not.

  28. Hey guys what’s up?

    by the way ANYONE interested in buying my IPHONE Black 3gs 16GB with OS 4.1, it is Brand NEW i bough only this January from MOBILY original Price is 2,599 SR now i’m selling it for 2,300 SR, 100% in BRAND NEW Condition and complete with the Original Box + accessories.


  29. I have a quick question…
    is it better to buy the iPhone 4 16 GB from the UK for 499 Pounds= 2935 ryals (unlocked), or buying it from Saudi?
    Are the iPhones in Saudi Arabia unlocked? when you buy them from mobily for the prices avove are u obligated in a 2 year contract?
    pls answer me as soon as possible, my uncle is at London and he can buy me one 🙂

    • Do get it from London as of yet the official release date for Saudi Arabia has not been announced. However ask your uncle to get it from an apple retail store and not any carphonewarehouse or phones4u shop (as they will be locked to carrier.

      Also just remember that when I last checked at the apple retail stores in London they promised delivery after 3 weeks of your date of order.

  30. Dear Mr. Khalid I purchased iphone4 from ebay and i put stc micro sim in my Iphone4 but still its showing no service why?

    • I’m STILL waiting for the white one to come out! I rlaley wanted to stay in line over night, but I’m staying comitted to getting this color. Scratches and fingerprints dont show up so I’m good.

  31. Can i unlock my iphone4 which i purchased from US, Please advise someone, What is the proceedure?

  32. Hi, I found the iPhone 4 – 32GB at ipmart online for $1169, that’s about SR 4540 including the shipping payment. I was wondering how much it would cost in Saudi.

  33. I have an IPhone 4 that I am offering. I won’t sell it for cheap though. it’s a 16GB black and officially unlocked. 4,500SAR, only Saudi Arabia Jeddah or Dammam… salkhabti@gmail.com

  34. I fone 4 is best

  35. Think..it should be cheap while with carrier(AT&T US & other country) price is Iphone4 16gb ($199 USD) & 32gb ($299 USD) the unlocked one shouldn’t cross ($400 USD),so why this much price in KSA ?…………

  36. hi, i want buy iphone4 unlock.

  40. im selling new 16GB iPhone 4 for sr4000

  41. I’ve been looking for an iphone 3gs for a reasonable price, but all I seem to get is around 2700, which dosent suit me. I’m also worried that as soon as the iphone 4 spreads, there will no longer be any 3gs’ available for sale. I’ve been looking to a price around 2200, even a properly used one will do. I been thinking to wait for a week or 2 and see if the prices drop.

    • Moutaz, I am planning to sell my iphone 32gb 3gs and looking out for the same price as you are willing to offer. please let me know if you are interested.


    • I have 32GB iphone 3GS purchased in Feb., 2010 from mobily, Black color. Perfect condition can send you the picture of the phone itself if you’re interested. Mail me at sameer@uenocorp.com. I am based in Riyadh and can give it to you for 2,200sr cash on spot delivery.

    • Well, yes i am interested in both, but you’ve go to send me pictures of the phone first and tell me when u brought it, plus i live in khobar, so I guess that’s a problem.

  42. I have bought an unlocked Iphone 4 in the UK but can’t use my STC sim as I need a Micro SIM – does anyone know if I can get the Micro SIM in KSA and can I transfer my KSA number?

  75. I am interested to buy one, since long time I have registered with online with Mobily to get its availability but not yet received a single message.
    Personally I visited Mobily head office near Tahlia St.and there staff told me that it will be available in next week, ‘the word ‘next week’ is repeating default there since one and half months. But they told me 16 GB cost SR 2,700. From near sources of Mobily I got message that staffs of Mobily are dealing devices in black market with high rate. I enquire in Balad area there’s cost SR 3,450. in Start Market SR 3,500. Now remaining Jarir Book…let’s see the price there.

  76. Availability in Mobily is still less chance, no more in Jarir Book, in black market some shops in Balad and Phelestine st costs SR 3,500 for 16 GB. STC is planning to bring it soon in market…but see may it will take more than 5 months. You know one thing what, when a child cries to eat a sweet…but his elder doesn’t allow him to eat or doesn’t bring it for him…gradually child lose the thirst and interest for the sweet. Later on his parents bring a lot of variety and tasty sweets…child eats, but he has less lust for the sweet as he was yawning crying for the sweet. It’s going to be happen with Apple iphone 4.

  77. Till availability of iPhone 4 in Kingdom iPhone 4 CDMA with more advance fondness will launch very soon in February 2011

  78. Now any one wants iPhone 4 16GB, it’s available at SR 3500/-, contact me. min. order 4 pcs.
