International destinations & operators for MMS

Etisalat has an agreement with almost 50 destinations to send and receive MMSs.

Sending MMS To any destination in the world

  • The new and enhanced MMS solution enables you to send MMSs to any destination number in the world, even for the operators who do not have a direct agreement with Etisalat. However, if the destination number's operator does not have an agreement with Etisalat, the MMS will be sent as SMS notification, providing a link and password to view and download the MMS through the website. You can also reply back via internet from the same website
