I got the same emails iLSuL6ana got and posted about few days ago. The email suggests that Zain’s MiFi is a total ripoff with the KD 85 price, plus a subscription for 30 KD?
I’d say: PZZZZZT! WRONG!
It’s 30 KD for the device if you subscribe for a Data package, which is 30 KD/Mo if you do not have a contract in Zain, and 27 KD/Mo if you do. Here’s the thing, a list of features that you cannot find in the device sold in cameo for KD 70:
The device is customized to suit Zain’s network and to avoid connection drops.
The device is Auto-configured to be immediately connected to Zain’s network.
An Arabic interface for the routers’ control panel.
A ONE YEAR warranty on the device.
A small calculation:
If I get the cameo MiFi for KD 70 + a 35 KD/Mo Premium Data subscription from VIVA (for example), I will end up paying:
70 + (35 x 12) = KD 490 for the 1st year.
But, If I get the Zain MiFi, It is KD 30 + a 30 KD/Mo Super Data subscription from Zain (for those not having contracts in Zain, and KD 27 for contract holders), I will end up paying:
30 + (30×12) = KD 390 for the 1st year.
I think that a KD 100 makes a big difference PLUS the features above!
