Working in Dubai, need a United Arab Emirates mobile number... ?!? *

    • Thread Starter

    Going to Dubai in *3 weeks to work, before i go I need a mobile SIM that starts with 005 or 009... which is the country code for mobiles.

    Where could I get a sim from in the UK, is it possible to get one from a Orange or T-mobile shop etc?

    Or could I ring up t-mobile and ask them to change my mobile number to an abroad number? Would that be possible?

    Thanks in advance *


    personally i think itd be easier to buy one out there, the price of using a t-mobile etc. sim out there would be horrific...
