    Is it necessary to buy the 3g Vitas from Etisalat or du?? or we can by is from a normal retail store like jumbo itself??

      Etisalat and Du have not yet partnered with Sony to give special packages for Vita. However, you should be able to buy a normal 3G-enabled sim card and use it with the system. Of course, you can buy Vita from a normal store.
