Just a heads-up. Having your Zain line provisioned for internet and getting settings sent to your phone used to be a harrowing experience (see: Mobile Data and User-friendly Configuration). It looks like those days are over.
This morning, I popped a Zain SIM into a phone, and within moments, I received a couple of settings for WAP, MMS and internet, accompanied by text messages that congratulated me for having had the line provisioned.
This user-friendly provisioning system used to be a preserve of MTN and Etisalat. If Zain has just joined the club, as it seems, that leaves only Glo as the only “Old School” networks on the block as regards internet provisioning and configuration.
Anyone else has any reports and/or experiences with this on Zain?
