Unlimited SMS by Ufone in Rs. 2.99 are Actually 500 SMS a day!

ufone_sms1Ufone is airing Unlimited SMS TVC on TV channels, that claims that Ufone prepaid customers can send unlimited SMS a day at Rs. 2.99 (Rs. 2.99 + Rs. 0.63 = Rs. 3.62) per day

When I called Ufone’s help line, Ms. Aaliya from Ufone’s call center said that prepaid customers can send as many as 500 SMS a day. On inquiring that why Ufone’s TVC is claiming unlimited SMS? She responded that “500 SMS a day can be considered as unlimited messages..!”

I suppose Ufone needs to re-evaluate the definition of Unlimited SMS, especially for a nation that stands at rank 4 in Asia Pacific in sending SMS.
