  • haider

    its a very good way to find a friend
    can you send me a goody bag of your company warid-zem

  • @ Haider

    I am not from Warid Zem…Please call their help line if you need any such thing : – )

  • Interesting service … good post Aamir!

  • @ Babar,

    Thanks sir…!

  • @ Usman

    Thanks a lot for your review of server…

    I liked your words “i can ask that friend of mine in one rupee call so y wud i spent 3 rupees when even i know that i might be answered and might not be too” lol

    Yea this service is dangerous too in case my father requests my location through Warid Location finder…. see if i am at a place where i don’t want my dad to know about, then i am in trouble….!

    Neither i can allow him or even disallow him to know my location (in case the service is working)

  • Usman

    i am a user of warid since 2005. when i received sms abt find location service of warid, i was so happy.
    same day i used the service and asked for a location of a friend. it received my request deducted money and qued me in for wait. i waited for 1 hour but no response from warid. i talked to customer services representative and asked him the status of my request. u will be amazed to hear this stupidity of warid company… he replied me “sir first we will ask that person and take his permission then tell u his location”.
    o my God what a stupid they r. how can a person like to disclose abt himself when he doesnt know who wants to know. and very clear is that i can ask that friend of mine in one rupee call so y wud i spent 3 rupees when even i know that i might be answered and might not be too.
    ppl dont know but they might have used this service and lost their money but to no avail.. even this service is bad bcos it doesnt keep my privacy and they may tell my friend abt my number then there remains no surprize for my friend when i contact him.. this is called fake financial policies to get money.

  • Asif Mushtaq

    I agree. Its a pretty useless service. Don’t know why they have started it. don’t they have anything better to offer.

  • Usman

    its proved that the service is a wastage of money..

    now most important to discuss is that almost all cell service companies has offered 1 rupee for one minute on net.. (with a little variation).

    Telenor offered A1
    Mobilink offered JazzOne
    zong offered 50 Paisa for 30 sec to all network (best offer).
    Ufone offered also one rupee without any connectivity..

    but my dear brothers and sisters our beloved company Warid remained behind and all other have won. the worst is that its offering fraud services like this find friend’s location…

    so what do u think y warid is not offering one rupee service. is it a poor company or what do u think what could be the reason?

    Well, Usman, Mobilink may be the biggest service, but it has always been a rip off one. I have given Rs 10/minute to these sob’s, few years back. But now companies like warid have forced them to decrease their absurd calling rates & sim prices. Warid is a competitor and competition is always helpful in breaking the monoplies of the expensive b*tches like mobilink & ufone. Warid is a cheap wh*re with quality and it charges what it claims and replies by a balance message.
