  • Delighted winner of Nawras SMS & WIN collects grand prize at end of successful promotion

Mobilk - Nawras, Oman’s customer friendly communications provider, successfully concluded its popular SMS & WIN promotion recently by distributing the final daily prizes of 1000 Omani Rials as well as presenting the third grand prize to surprised winner, Mr. Sunil Sitaram Thite.  Over the last three months, Nawras has given away 90,000 Omani Rials in daily cash prizes and three grand prizes of Toyota Prados.


At the company’s main office, Nawras Chief Executive Officer, Ross Cormack, presented the Toyota Prado keys to a very happy Mr. Thite and said, “Many congratulations on becoming our third grand prize winner! Nawras is delighted to give you this luxury car as we come to the end of a most exciting promotion. We are thrilled that so many of our customers enjoyed the challenge and entertainment of SMS & WIN. We promised to make Nawras telecommunications a rewarding experience and this engaging promotion has been one of many examples of the pleasingly different way we do this.”


Mr. Thite related how he could not believe it when he received the exciting call from Nawras with the news that he was the winner of the grand prize of a Toyota Prado four wheel drive vehicle.  He had been dreaming of such a moment.


Receiving the keys, Mr. Thite said, “My family and I are thrilled to have won this prize from Nawras.  My son loves big cars and that was the reason I first decided to enter the promotion.  Once I started answering the questions I really enjoyed it as I was increasing and testing my knowledge through the competition.  My wife joined in and we really relished the challenge.”








After enthusiastically thanking Ross Cormack and Nawras, Mr. Thite explained that playing the game had been like communicating with someone who was constantly challenging him and how it had been great fun to rise to the occasion and then eagerly wait for each new question to arrive.


Nawras SMS & WIN was a huge success as thousands of customers, including Mr. Thite, enjoyed the opportunity to download wallpaper and answer the interesting questions posed in the daily quiz that ran over a duration of three months.  A record number of customers took part in the final month with each one having a chance to win one of the tantalising prizes that were up for grabs. 


All draws to find the winners of the daily 1000 Omani Rials cash prizes and the monthly Toyota Prados were held in the presence of a Ministry of Commerce and Industry official.  Winners were announced through the promotional website at and can still be viewed there. 

Every time a customer sent an SMS to 91999 during the promotion, Nawras gave 50 Elite Program loyalty points to use for free talk time and free SMS.  These points will be credited shortly and customers notified accordingly. 

Customers can see their Elite Program points balance by dialling *147*22# and pressing enter to send.  To use accumulated points the number to dial is 147*24#.

A member of the Qtel Group, Nawras is committed to making telecommunications easier, more versatile and always a rewarding experience.  SMS & WIN provided rewards in the form of prizes worth over 100,000 Omani Rials. As a result, a large number of customers were overjoyed to get more from choosing Nawras.  







Moving to Nawras to benefit from caring, excellent and pleasingly different services is easy to do.  There is no need to change a current mobile number when using the number portability service.  The steps for this simple process can be explained by a friendly professional at any Nawras Store or seen by visiting the company’s website at where number portability can be selected from the Nawras Services tab on the home page.
