We are glad to inform you on the recovery of the short codes operation in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt.
Starting October 2013 the following short codes are available for the UAE:

And the following short codes are available for subscribers from Egypt:
95125 — 5.00 EGP
94122 — 4.00 EGP
9326 — 3.00 EGP
We have gathered some useful information about the countries for those who hesitate about connecting them.
The UAE is a country with favorable conditions for mobile infrastructure development.
It is worth mentioning that it is one of the countries with the highest level of mobile phone penetration rate with the index of 205,6%. The total number of mobile subscribers in the UAE is 12,36 million people.
At the same time, it should be taken into account that mobile carriers are extremely strict with the projects they consider to be risk. These projects include, along with common gambling games and adult services, horoscopes and wallpapers for mobile phones. For this reason, we strongly demand to pay attention to the content on the websites in order to prevent penalty charges.
In Egypt, in spite of low income of the country residents, due to the developed tourism infrastructure 3G and 3,5G networks are currently available for providing the high-speed Internet within the country. In addition to this, Egypt is the 22d with the index of 84,4% among the countries in the rating of mobile phone penetration rate.
Mobile carriers in the country forbid using short codes on the services which may include prohibited content (adult content): file hosting service, video dating websites.
In order to connect Egypt, it is necessary to send a request to the financial department to email@example.com.
