Ufone Introduces New UrEDGE GPRS Packages

Ufone has revised its GPRS/EDGE packages for its prepaid customers. Now Ufone users can subscribe for three available packages, depending on their usage to enjoy in-expensive GPRS for their internet needs while on the go.

Procedure is simple, you subscribe to one of three available packages, which will deduct balance from your account according to package and you will be allotted with certain amount of data limit, again according to package. You can use this data with-in a certain time.

The good thing is that you can subscribe again to any package if you use exceed your data limit. By the way, in case your data limit is over, and you are still using GPRS then you will be charged at standard rates, which are Rs. 15 plus tax per 1 MB. So make sure that you have an eye on remaining data limit. To check remaining data package volume & expiry date you can send USSD command to *706# or call 706.

This treat is for prepaid users only, postpaid users, please keep on paying high bills and over charges and keep missing the luxury….!
