Qtel customers can take their mobile phone on holiday this summer and not worry about a large data roaming bill, thanks to the new Data Passport from Qtel.
Launched today, the Data Passport enables customers to access email, browse the web and stay connected on social networks while overseas, offering 1GB of data for just QR100.
The incredibly-convenient Data Passport is available to all Qtel Shahry and Hala customers and is activated by simply sending an SMS. Customers are provided with 1GB of data valid for seven days, so they can send photos home and stay connected as they travel.
To subscribe to Data Roaming Passport, Shahry customers need to send a free SMS message: containing ‘DP’ to 114 and Hala customers should send an SMS containing ‘DP’ to 121. Activation can also be done free of charge from abroad. A credit balance of QR100 is required for Hala customers to subscribe to the service.
To ensure that customers are always aware of their data consumption, Shahry customers will receive an SMS letting them know when 80 percent of data has been used and another message when 100% of the allocation has been consumed. Hala customers can check their data balance by sending a free SMS with the text ‘BALANCE DP’ to 121. Customers then have the option to re-subscribe, even while overseas.
Qtel customers can enjoy some of the best value data roaming rates whenever they travel overseas. With the new Data Roaming Passport, they can ensure they don’t face a large roaming bill on their return from holiday, and they can always stay connected with friends and family. The Data Passport works on specific networks in specific countries.
