Ufone has officially come up with this new package (they say its first time in Pakistan), called Collect Call.
With Ufone Collect Call you can remain connected and make calls even when you don’t wish to pay for a call, so you no longer require sending people missed calls as the receiving party pays for the call charges.
With Collect Call you can even make call even with ZERO balance in your account.
This Package is available for both prepaid and postpaid customers, and both (calling/receiving) parties should have Ufone.
So, all the husbands of the world, and boyfriends – get ready for huge bills as your girls are not going to spare you now. At the same time, this package can be used in an efficient manner by managers, who want their subordinates to stay in touch with them – so now they can pay for the calls made to their numbers, while subordinates will have to pay for all other calls. Same can be applied for children-parents scenario.
How to make a FREE Call?
In order to initiate an Ufone Collect Call request, simply dial 11 followed by the desired Ufone number. e.g. 1103335199942.
If the other party accepts your collect call your call will be connected right away. However If the dialed number does not have sufficient balance or cancels your request you will receive a SMS notification.
Npte: Collect Call will only work if you have insufficient balance in your account e.g. if your balance is Rs. 0.33 then you may avail call collect service. (This was told by a Ufone CSR)
