Let’s get to know each other

We want to be your lifestyle partners! We have mobile plans built just for you, but also multiple discounts and vouchers in your preferred outlets and the largest wifi network in the country, so you’re always connected.
Yes, it is the Etisalat network which is the largest and fastest 4G LTE network in the country. So, don’t worry about having signal for your trip in the desert, or the quality of your streaming video. 4G and LTE coverage and speed from swyp are the best you can get.
We’d like to be good friends with everyone, but to have the service you need to be at least 15 years old and not more than 29. If you cross 29 while you’re swyp customer, you can still keep it!
Yes, you can choose the number you like whether you order through the app or in a store. If you still want to keep your number, that’s possible as well. We will guide you through the migration process.
No, swyp is a prepaid offer.
As a member you get 5 GB full speed to access your favorite social apps, plenty of shopping perks and connectivity to a nationwide wifi network designed for you only. On top of that, you have access to additional data packs, with different limits and prices, and call plans. If you are a very social guy, there’s also a Snapchat-Instagram bundle package for you!

Buying

Easy: you need to get a SIM. Present your Emirates ID, register, done.
Sure! Just download the swyp app and follow the process. The SIM will be delivered at your doorstep and the registration will happen right away. With your SIM activated, you can immediately start enjoying the service.
If you don’t want to use your credit card online, you can still visit one of Etisalat’s outlets and our retail partners and request the SIM. Remember to download the swyp app right after and recharge to enjoy the benefits.
No, you are entitled to only one SIM.

Using

How to keep this in four lines? Let’s try: with the swyp app you can activate your service, buy packages, check your usage and remaining balance, invite friends (and be rewarded!), send/request credit, see your monthly vouchers, redeem with just a touch, see swyp wifi network… Discover the rest!
The use of the app is free and there is zero impact on your consumption. Only the use of external sources (like maps) is deducted from your data balance.
Oh, that’s one of the best parts! Launch the app (yes, everything is in the app!) and go to your existing packages. Click on the one you want to know about, and you’ll see how much you’ve used, how much is left and for how many days, in a beautiful and easy to understand format. No more questions or doubts.
swyp has a monthly subscription of 50 AED. And with that you get all the goodies that come with the membership! Good, isn’t it? And if you want more, just make sure you have credit in your account to pick a package from our store in the app and enjoy it.
Of course! And you’ll get a reward for that, a month free of the bundle social app package with 1GB of Snapchat+Instagram, just as soon as they activate their membership!
It will happen rarely, but that the content you look at, usually a video, might be outside the app you are using. In that case, there may be a small consumption from a different package due to the source of the content.
In the swyp app you will find many options of data packs depending on your needs.

Perks

You don’t have to. It’s open and free. We felt there’s many of these programs out there but nothing really specific for you. So with the membership you get the perks of being a swyper: access to a world of discounts and benefits in outlets that are part of your life. Each month the list is refreshed!
Easy. Go to your favorite place among dining, entertainment and shopping, show your voucher before paying, enter the code, done. That easy. Enjoy the next one.
On the 1st of each month all vouchers are refreshed. Each voucher has a 30-days validity. It may be there again next month, it may be not. So don’t hesitate using it!

Billing

Any package you are subscribed to will still be valid until the expiry and it’s a one time purchase. However, you will not be able to use any of the vouchers neither connect to the wifi network. Just ensure there’s 50 AED in your balance before membership expiry so you’ll still be enjoying the most out of swyp.
Etisalat’s recharge card can be used to recharge swyp accounts. So just get one from the thousand outlets where it is available, launch the app, go to recharge, enter the card number and you’re done.
Sure! Just use the app to send a request any swyp or Etisalat number, and wait for a tip! You can also send a reminder if you’ve been waiting too long.

Packages

That’s easy and fun. Just visit the store in the app, choose your package, click to buy and that’s it! Well, if you like the old fashion you can still use short codes: dial *888# and choose from the list.
No, you will have complete control and you will be able to buy just before the expiry. We’ll let you know when it’s time, so you are not caught by surprise.
Sure, buy it as many times as you want. Each will have its own expiry date and you will be able to monitor it in the app.
First come, first expiry. The one you purchased first will be consumed first. Check in the app usage screens the detail of the consumption, to have clear picture of your usage and plan your purchases.
If you travel, you can refer to the packages Etisalat is offering. You will receive an SMS upon arrival at your destination with all the available options.
It is a bundle of minutes to all national numbers and 100 international destinations you can use as you like! Check on swyp.ae if the country you wish to call is included
