Zong Announces Per min, Data Based and Unlimited GPRS Packages

We have covered before about Zong’s hourly GPRS packages, their unlimited and limit based internet packages for mobile users, which really changed the way people use internet while on the go.

Now at this point of time, they are introducing couple of new incentives and reportedly a campaign to aware mobile customers about available options they have got to use internet while on the move.

Zong Internet Packages


By the way, all packages can be subscribed through SMS or IVR (whatever is more convenient to you – all options will be available on IVR after July 5th, 2009).

Details on the packages are as follows:

Default Packages Time Based Packages Monthly Packages
Prepaid Zong Free Rs. 10/MB

Charging unit 8kb

Rs 0.25 per min

Activation charges Rs10

2 GB bundle Rs 2004 GB bundle Rs 400

Truly unlimited – Rs 999

 

Zong 12 Anay Rs15/MB

Charging unit 8Kb

Postpaid Rs15/MB

Charging unit 8Kb

Truly unlimited – Rs 400

 

All rates are exclusive of taxes…!

As you can see, there are variety of packages available for internet lovers. Time bases, Size based and unlimited, both for prepaid and postpaid. Rs. 0.25 per min for prepaid looks very attractive to me, meaning that – one can check his/her email in just Rs. 1 – that’s wow.

How to Subscribe

To subscribe, prepaid customers can either call IVR 905 or send the following SMS to the SMS short code 905 for the respective packages

  • Sub<space>2GB  and send to 905 – for activation of 2 GB bundle  @ Rs 200
  • Sub<space>4GB  and send to 905 – for activation of 4 GB bundle  @ 400
  • Sub<Space>Unlimited and send to 905 – Rs 999
  • Menu and send to 905 – for all commands
  • Postpaid customers can subscribe to the unlimited Internet package by dialing 905 only

Incase GPRS bundle users are interested in check how much of their bundle package has been consumed, they can simply send ‘balance’ to 130

  • kami

    2gb in 200rs is really nice package…but zong gprs quality is not good some time even cannot open small page like google…..

  • Sajjad

    GPRS is a failure technology and its like running donkeys in the War. not of use , lets see 3G will be launched.

    Zong should not offer those technologies which is about to complete its life and about to disappear soon from the market.

  • Ali Kayani

    Hmmmmm! i am thinking about moving to zong seriously for the first time, i am using warid postpaid with infinite gprs package, which is no more infinite… they charge me 650+ for 2gb gprs, which sucks the most… speed is also not good, you cant even watch a clip on youtube mobile.

  • Woooh it is very good.Zong is rocking.

  • Zeeshan

    I think so there is no 2gb package. It is only enhancement to 4gb. Has anyone activated 2gb package only?

    • saad

      yes i have. Its best package from zong if you have moderate amount of downloading and You dont run your computer on it.

  • Zaidi62

    The command u have written “send balance to 130” is not working, msg return from network as “Dear customer, you input error format command.” and other command “p send to 102” is giving incomplette report just remaining data for use in kb format only without last date with .50+tax per sms, they shuld keep it free and show usage report in gb, mb, kb for both remaing data and used also.

  • Shahzad

    Does someoneknow how Zong Data based internet package calculate the data and its charges.
    I am asking as I have developed a mobile app which
    – opens a socket b/w my host/server and mobile
    – sends few 100 bytes (less than 1 KB) to my server
    – receive few 100 bytes in response from server
    – close the port

    So in worst case zong should charge me for 16KB … right i.e. 15 to 18 Paisa?? But I noticed that my balance is reduced by at least .5Rs or more. Soany one have any idea how they calculate these charges. Thanks

  • M. Shoaib Khan

    @Shahzad:
    You might have activated the per hour package offered by zong. I guess that is why they are charging you .5.
    Regards,
    Shoaib

    • hina

  • kaali

    thanks all of u frndz mere khyal se Zong hi best rhega ap ne mera mind chang kia thank God

  • Nabeel

    itni lambi chat parnay k baad ab mari baat suno sub.

    main last 5 years say ufone use kar raha hun us main call rates sms bundle or gprs mms sub shamil hai.

    ufone best hai gprs main kun k edge mobile main main nay khud 112kbps speed use ke hai per edge sirf main cities main hai jin main
    Karachi
    Lahore
    Multan
    in cities jasay baray cities hain.
    is time main ryk main hun maray pass edge supported handset hai per max download speed 35kbps hai kun k yahan gprs service available hai edge nai.

    ufone ke speed computer pay use karnay pay b 35kbps he ati hai.

    or rahi

    zong ke baat to zong ke service use karna gprs k lia fazool hai.
    local or cheap quality browsing kar saktay ho per nokia n series or e series ka ak web page open karnay main 5 to 10 min lagtay hain or wo page google hoto warna or wait karo :D
    zong ka usb net use kia 2kbps in ryk or 15kbps in karchi near golf ground in cant :P
    is say zayda speed mujhay nai mili kahien.

    Telenor use kia tha per wo b ufone jitna he costly hai 256kbps connection speed wala with 2GB limit wala package use kia main nay nokia 5320 music handset pay (non edge hai) max download speed 29-30kbps on mobile and computer both………..in Rahim Yar Khan.

    maray ghar se ufone ke tower ka distance about 250 meter ho ga or telenor k tower ka 280 meter kun k dono sath he lagay huway hain or mobilink tower 150 meters from mini tower or 600 meter from gateway.

    punjab or sindh ka (mobilink ka) gateway Rahim yar khan main hai gulshan iqbal scheme # 2 main or main b wahien rahta hun.

    signal strength sub network ke maximum hai or speed mention kar de hai main nay.

    mobilink use nai kia is lia comment nai kar sakta.

  • Saad

    Nabeel itna lamba message kya hai mere khyal me ap ko Ufone waley sponser kar rhe hain ;D

  • Saad

    Nabeel Ufone zong se acha zaroor hoga lekin Zong is not bad if you get full signal strength cuz im using zong internet. Apne jo kaha ke web page khulne me 5-10 minutes lagte hain mere pas maximum 30-50 seconds lagte hain or charges bhi zara dekho sirf 230 per month. Jaise maine pehle kaha ap ko zarur Ufone walo ne sponser kya hai ;D

  • Engr.nisar

    zong gprs has lowest data rate compared to all other gprs available by now. even if it is sold for nothing i will be thinking of other networks cuz customer service is so poor
