Rates here for mobiles, internet etc are more expensive than in the UK and there are less features and perks. You pay for nearly everything but I think 750 a month would cover calls from a mobile easily unless you have a job where you need to be making lots of calls.

SIM cards for pay as you go schemes run at around 150 or so I think...plus a yearly renewal of about the same. I got one years ago and still have it -rarely spend more than 50 a week and I send a lot of sms.

Have a look for Etisalat and Du's Websites...they are sure to list their tariffs there.
