CDCastleI almost know every store in this complex. I usually visit “Wala’a Complex” in Hawali every weekend alone to search out any new technology is up in the market. Beginning of 2005, I bought brand new HP & Dell laptop from Dubai.

These days, the internet is so expensive and as well the softwares. So I stayed wondering around Hawali to search for the best cheapest software store to add up some applications to my laptop. However, I kept visiting Hawali only to visit “CD Castle” store to buy new softwares and games to keep my laptop updated.

Does anyone still remember CD Castle Store!.

TraveliOSYou have to be aware from different options in your iPhone during your travel:

  1. Use the settings app to setup your iPhone
  2. Switch on the flight mode feature during your flight. Then switch off the flight mode feature when you arrive at your end destination.
  3. Go to cellular, then switch on the data roaming if you would like to use the internet data from the Kuwaiti line. Otherwise, switch off the cellular data feature just in case to keep the internet off during your stay and not keeping your bill over charged.
  4. Always find a new SIM card from any local telecommunication companies to use the internet or find the nearest Free WiFi.

VIVAKuwait4GMore than one month, I’m experiencing bad signal and data service from VIVA Kuwait Telecom. I spoke to the customer service 102 and reported about the issue. The employee said “We will take your request and get back to you”. After a week, I called the call centre to follow-up my request. As well the employee said, “We will contact you when we solve up the issue”.

Weeks and weeks went over. Five days ago, I posted this issue on @q8path Instagram. VIVA Social Media staff requested my mobile number and I followed up with them. One of the network relation staff called me and said we will solve the issue soon.

Till this moment, nothing is solved yet. Well, I’m fed up with calling and calling the customer relations to solve the issue. I will wait for the contract to end this September and move to other telecommunication company in Kuwait which take care of their customers.
