    Did anyone knew that Zong has blocked “Google.com.pk”. I am using Zong Unlimited Interent package and came to know that I cannot use Google search because ZONG blocked it. Any one knows the reason and will propakistani cover article on that!

    • @Omer,
      Dear, Im also using unlimited Zong GPRS
      all you do is to use m.google.com to open it in Mobile
      Download Google Software from it and then over
      Any time you need to search something
      Open the Install App (Small in size-Needs no Loading)

      and give your Keywords for search and it will search
      Again if you found the problem that it open sometimes and not sometimes just give an extra SPACE at the end of your keywords

      Good Luck

      @Omer, Yes, ZoNG had blocked some google sites but unblocked all google services from 26 december, 2008 after PTA forced them to resolve the problem. Now you can check gmail and google.com sites on your PC.

  • Zen Blog

    no no no zong is not blocking any url from google. i have vfone and i also can not use google.com, adsense, gmail and any other google service. i think this problem in the googles servers or in the mega servers

  • Usman Afzal

    If ZoNG is not blocking it then it seems that google.com site is unaccessable via WIRELESS connections on PC like ZoNG EDGE, Vfone, WorldCall etc. I can access all google sites on my mobile through WAP browser/ Opera Mini software. Also GMAIL java software is working well on my Samsung mobile.But I can’t open Google.com site when using my ZoNG edge connection on PC.
    All Google sites are fully accessable on my broadband cable DeltaNet connection. ZoNG is using Cybernet connection. May be Cybernet is responsible for it! Can anyone confirm it?

  • Irfan

    I am unable to open google.com or google.com.pk on ZoNG.
    I am using ShoZu for sharing photos and videos. Its free and supports lots of website, Why should I pay Rs. 25 per month for this “amazing” service?

    • Omer

      @Irfan,
      Hello there. Even I am facing same problem with Zong, I wonder why our Propakistani is still not having article on it. I am really waiting for that.

  • Usman Afzal

    This “TakeOne” java midlet doesn’t support most of Samsung mobiles due to absense of camera related API (like JSR 234). ZoNG’s software was successfully installed on my Samsung E200 and I have successfully activated my account as well. Also addition of third party service “Photobucket” was successful but when I tried to start camera from this software, a “please wait…” message appeared which hanged the mobile.

    Actually, my mobile name is not in supported devices list of “TakeOne” software. So, Now I have unsubscribed this service.

    Zong should improve “TakeOne” software by giving a feature to add photos/ videos directly from mobile’s internal and external memory. This will dramatically increase the support to many mobiles including Samsung E200, D900, D900i, D880, D780 etc.

    Dears, I can easily access Google via PTCL’s Internet. When I called ZONG’s helpline (310), they told em that ZONG blocked it instead of mentioning any problem. Is this problem same with Ufone and Mobilink too? I am using Internet with PC!

    • Usman Afzal

      @Omer, Today, I have checked JAZZ gprs on PC and I can access google.com site on PC browser but JAZZ internet rates are too high (1.29 rupees per 64KB data). Too expensive also much slower than ZoNG EDGE connection!!

      • Omer

        @Usman Afzal,
        Usman Mobilinks is offereing Unlimited Free GRPS/Internet on Postpaid for Rs.500+31%tax with no data limit.
        I was thinking of porting to Mobilink because Zong’s Internet is really kiling me and their staff refuse to note any complain easily.
        But, thanks for opening my eyes. Any experience with Ufone, I am thinkin about their Unlimited Internet for postpaid which is for 650+31%tax and is expensive than both others!
