Smart Home in Qatar made easy. The Jolt Smart Switch replaces your existing in wall light switch and gives you control of your lighting. And who is that handsome actor in the video?
If you are considering buying a new mobile phone in Qatar, below are some sample prices to guide you.
All mobile phones sold in Qatar are unlocked
In Qatar there are no monthly contract deals for mobile phones combined with usage. All mobile phones sold in Qatar are unlocked and ready for any service provider.
The prices given below are the cheapest found on the date shown along with the retailer offering these prices. Only the cheapest prices are shown. If a cheaper price is found then that price will be updated along with the retailer where it was found.
The Amazon Kindle Fire 7″ found in Carrefour City Center needs a special mention. QR 239 is a really great price. That’s the same as in the UK and you don’t have to pay a fortune to ship it to Qatar.
It’s easy to get FREE WiFi on Arrival at DOH
When you arrive in HIA (Hamad International Airport) Qatar or DOH as it will appear on your ticket, you can get access to the airports free WiFi. After disembarking from your aircraft simply turn on your phone and connect to #HIAQatar Complimentary
After connecting to #HIAQatar Complimentary you should see the screen below.
There are two ways to get free internet at HIA, if you flew with Qatar Airways you should select [Connect using QR booking]. You will find your QR booking code on your ticket. If you arrived with any other airline you need to select [Connect using SMS]. If you select [Connect using SMS] you will need to enter the phone number of your mobile.
WARNING: The only disadvantage of using the [Connect using SMS] option is that you must have roaming enabled on your phone to receive the SMS Access Code if you are not using a Qatari SIM. If you are enabling roaming on your phone you may want to ensure that data roaming is turned off to avoid incurring expensive data roaming charges. Make sure you turn off data roaming before turning off your phone during takeoff.
Once you receive your Wi-Fi Access code, you simply enter it and your free WiFi will begin. Then you can turn off all roaming on your phone if you need to.
Now you can use the free WiFi to chat with whoever is meeting you on the other side in arrivals, and let everyone back home know you have arrived safely.
You can easily buy a new ooredoo or Vodafone SIM on arrival at Doha International Airport
Once you have made it through customs it may be a good idea to buy a local SIM for use during your stay in Qatar. Qatar enjoys absolutely excellent mobile coms, with fast and reliable mobile data. You will need your passport for ID when buying a SIM in Qatar, and they will take a copy of your passport and register it against your SIM.
to buy a new SIM. And both have very similar pricing for data and calls. It would take a great deal of comparison to try and decide which one to go for on price alone. And I would not want to be sued by either of them by saying one had a better network than the other. So the choice is yours. But ask them both about their Fexi plans because I believe they represent the best value for visitors.
For Vodafone once you have walked out of customs into arrivals. Turn to your left and walk to the end of the building (it’s not very far honestly). You will see the new Vodafone Sales Kiosk at the end of the building. This is where you can buy your Vodafone SIM and loads.
If you walk out of customs and turn right, you need to walk to the end of the building (follow signs for buses) and you will see a big ooredoo stand by the escalators.
Take you new SIM, pop it into your phone and you are good to go.
