The UAE telecom operator Etisalat has introduced a data gifting service that allows its mobile customers to send a data bundle to anyone on the same network by paying for the data bundle on behalf of the person.

“In the same spirit of gifting, we are giving them back a 10 per cent bonus data allowance for free,” said Khaled ElKhouly, Chief Marketing Manager, Etisalat.

According to the operator, data gift packages can be sent from pre-paid to pre-paid, post-paid to pre-paid and pre-paid to post-paid customers.

In a media statement, the operator explained that customers can initiate the mobile data gift via its mobile App (Etisalat UAE), dial the *170*6# USSD code or send the relevant keyword for their preferred data package (there are six configurations of data gifting, from 100MB up to 20GB – see table below for details).

In addition, it noted that the service offers multiple purchase options allowing the customer to pay for a data gift directly from a phone account (pre-paid airtime credit or post-paid bill) and cash or card payments at any Etisalat business centre.

In effect, UAE residents who own two Etisalat mobile numbers or those with a willing family/friend/colleague with an Etisalat mobile number – can ‘gift’ the data to themselves on one of the numbers and earn a 10 per cent bonus on the other.

“As an example, upon gifting a 3GB package, the customer receives an instant reward of 300MB for immediate use,” the operator said.

For the new mobile data gifting service, Etisalat offers a wide variety of data packages from to suit different needs.

“It is a delight to be extending our mobile data offering as gifting options for the first time in the UAE,” ElKhouly added.
