The Hajj, with Free Wi-Fi

I'm signing off for the weekend, but here's the valedictory link: Free Wi-Fi service in Mecca during this year's Hajj.

My only thought is, and I mean no irreverence whatsoever in this, if you're dressed in ihram, where do you keep the smartphone/netbook/laptop? (Actually I think you can carry a pouch of some sort, so perhaps this is a flippant remark.) But the hajj is now wired wireless.
