    @ Abdussamad

    Yea you are right, i am going to put details of that feature too, in a while hopefully!

  • Abdussamad

    An ad in today’s newspaper tells me that warid also allows you to find out the location of another warid user provided you have their consent. I am sure this feature will be something that parents will love to use to find out their children’s location.

    Simply “Useless” service. They are charging 4 or 5 rupee for this service. And the permission is needed from the person whose position is to be finded.Then one can simply send message or make a call.And it will charge only 1 or 2 rupee
