Postpaid

With a Wataniya Postpaid plan you can now stay connected and roam more conveniently than ever without paying any deposit. Plus, we provide a broadband mobile data (GPRS and MMS) service that's available in over 50 countries, providing you with data services and the ability to send and receive MMS messages to your family and friends in Kuwait.

Activation is Easy

To activate your postpaid roaming services visit any Wataniya branch or simply call 121 to speak with a Wataniya customer care representative. Note that deposit-free roaming works only with our new SIM Card. To upgrade your old SIM Card, just visit any of our branches.

Deposit Free

Deposit-free roaming lets you use the service up to a limit of 50 KD, which includes both your local usage in Kuwait and your usage while roaming. If you exceed this limit you will be notified and your outgoing calls will be barred. As soon as you've made a payment you'll immediately be able to again make outgoing calls. We do advise settling all your bills before travelling.

  • 5. How does international roaming work? With international roaming, when you arrive at your destination, turn on your phone and wait for a few seconds. You'll be automatically connected to a local network that has a roaming agreement with Wataniya. Please note that there are often a number of networks in a single country that Wataniya has a roaming agreement with to offer you a wider choice, so you can select the one you want to if you wish. To manually select different networks, please consult the owner's manual for your phone. Some phone models may not automatically connect to an overseas network, and may need to be manually logged on to a local network in the country you are visiting. Please refer to your phone's manual for instructions on how to do this. Back to top
  • 6. How do I make a call to a mobile when I am in a foreign country? When dialing a local mobile number while on a foreign network it is better to dial the complete local mobile number with the country code.

    For example: If you are roaming in UAE, dial "+971 50 454xxxx". This would ensure that you reach the person you are dialing as each country has its own local dialing pattern. Back to top
  • 7. How do I make a call to a local fixed line when I am in a foreign country? Make sure you dial the complete country code and local area code when dialing a local fixed line number while on a foreign network.

    For example: If you are in Dubai, UAE dial "+971 4 335xxxx". This would ensure you get connected to the correct number always. Back to top
  • 8. How do I call an international roaming user around the world? If the Wataniya mobile phone number of the person you are calling is 636xxxx and you want to call this number when you are overseas, then you need to dial it as if you are making an international call to the number in Kuwait, e.g. +965 636xxxx.

    This includes calling another international roaming user who is in the same country as you are.

    TIP - When using a mobile phone on roaming networks around the world, you can enter a + at the start of the international number you dial (instead of 00), this will automatically tell the network you are trying to make an international call. This is because 00 is not the international code in all countries. Back to top
