Ok I knew blogs had impact on people, and I knew our blog had a big audience, but when I was writing my post, and leaking the news to you guys about zain’s new MicroSim Cards, I didn’t expect to cause 2 big companies like Wataniya and VIVA to panic!

Our friends over at Buzberry and Frankom just posted Viva’s MicroSims and Wataniya’s press release, respectively. Coincidently just 2 days after the Zain news leak.

I’m so enjoying watching companies trip over each other over a post ๐Ÿ˜›

    No worries at all .. Apple and Steve are the winners after all. From customer point view, I car about price and service not about who gets it first, yes it may reflect company leadership but this is for them to brag about in their cubes .. and why is it only happen among mobile companies and not other businesses ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well guys, I just called Wataniya’s contact center. Agents have no clue about prices nor packages… it’s just “Microsims are gonna be available on Sunday!” DUH! what’s the use then?

    VIVA and Zain were really smart to keep it low for their iPad internet packages, what is the point of being first if you do not have an offer?

    Wise ppl say: “Better late than Sorry”

    I have a post abt that:

  7. M says:

    Nasser :

    offer for what ? they already have Data packages ? thats it ! so just change ur sim card and go !

  8. Nasser says:


    How about special rates since you won’t be using P2P traffic on the iPad? maybe business packages? or consumer packages? custom packages?

  9. s. says:

    Nasser, Zain already has the 7KD for 1GB offer.. which is sufficient for phones .. I doubt they’ll go lower than that… Knowing our three telecoms, they would probably all agree on a price.

    Frankom 7ilwa minsibag libag.. o khosh 9edfa enhom faj2a 7assaw enhom lazim yasbegoon hehe

    360dewan it is for them to brag about, thats for sure, but thats beside the point.. in this case WE are bragging about the whole thing and how it caused major companies to rush and announce things all of a sudden ๐Ÿ˜‰

    M Agreed it’s no big deal at all… but, just like 360dewan, you missed the point of this post. I’m not making a big deal out of the companies having micro sims.. but how a single post on our blog had giant companies rush to run press releases and push news on blogs because we leaked a piece of info. Hence the title โ€œSOME contrast Ruffle Giant Feathersโ€… I guess I wasn’t clear enough ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nasser No prices set yet for Wataniya’s microsims? I mean the chip itself?

    s I would be really angry at a 1GB limit ๐Ÿ™
