November 6, 2017

Contract timeframe is not a factor

Etisalat announced the availability of the iPhone X starting Friday, 3 November.  Now they have announced something interest with regard to their ‘iPhone for Life’ program. Etisalat was the first operator in UAE to bring Apple’s ‘iPhone for Life’ program to UAE subscribers last year. At the launch of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus, Etisalat customers had the chance to upgrade from an iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

And now we have the X in the fray. Etisalat ‘iPhone for Life’ subscribers owning iPhone 7 and 7 Plus can now enjoy a free upgrade to the new iPhone X , iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 plus upon completion of 12 months into their contract. 


Customers buying a new iPhone on the smartpay offer of 18 or 24 month can upgrade to a new Apple smartphone free after completing 12 months into their contract. Subscribers who have completed less than 12 months of their plan can still opt to upgrade to the latest iPhone by paying an early upgrade fee for the remaining months of the contract.

Subscription to the ‘iPhone for life program’ is also available for all new customers purchasing the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus devices on 18 and 24 month Smart pay offer.
