Etisalat has extended its Area Info Display service to cover the entire UAE, allowing its mobile phone customers to find out exactly what area they are in simply by glancing at their handset's screen.

Thanks to its 100% nationwide mobile coverage, Etisalat claims customers will be able to benefit from this feature even when in remote areas of the desert.

"Etisalat is happy to enhance convenience for all our customers, and this service reflects our commitment to underline the UAE's position as the leading tourism destination in the region," explained Khalifa Al Shamsi, Etisalat's vice president consumer and SMB marketing. "Be it tourists visiting the country, or residents traveling to another part of the country, this service ensures that everyone is able to identify and communicate their location with ease," he added.

The service is totally free of charge and can be initiated by a user through enabling ‘Cell Area Info Display' or the closest sounding option from a mobile device's options.
