Technical Assistance with iPhones / Smart Phones in Dar es Salaam

Most of our climbers will arrive into JRO or Nairobi. For those arriving into Dar es Salaam, however, help is at hand with many of the annoying and technical obstacles involved with using say, a UK contract phone, in Tanzania.

Our page on using iPhones is admittedly of limited use to those who don’t have time to plan ahead and obtain specialist micro-hardware. For those arriving into Dar es Salaam and wanting to have all their problems solved, including jailbreaking (this can be reversed when returning home but is useful for those who have a locked-to network SIM card and want to be able to use a local SIM card for cheap calls and data), you only need to go to:

IB Electronics
Contact: Intehaz Sajan
Shoppers’ Plaza
Mikocheni B
+255 713 444 666
+255 754 444 666
First Floor, next to Plaza Dry-Cleaners

This location is very useful, because this shop is very close to the Airtel main office where you can get new SIM cards. It needs to be noted that in Tanzania it is not yet possible to get micro-SIM cards which are needed for iPhone 4 and 4S. This shop can cut your cards for you at a cost of around 10,000 – 15,000 TSh per card.
