    Oh and by the way, if anyone watched Aaj TV some weeks ago,
    It was revealed that India’s Aghani Embassy was supporting Emen-Al-Zawahiri.
    So, who should be imposing ban here, Pak or Indi?

  • Hidden Eyes

    That was the only reason why they were not allowing Telenor in the first place… Reservations on Spying!!!

    Bad news for Telenor employes in pakistan.
    more over it must be in your knowledge that telenor was wiiling to get its new CTO from india some months ago.
    At that time same issue was raised (security reason).
    an he was droped.

    AT least here Telenor will not be merged with Zong now.

    • omerfarooq

      It will still be merged

      • Ansir

        It might be acquired by Zong (China Mobile)…

    A good decision indeed. Bilatral transfer would create security issues in both countries

    As PTA have not taken action against helpline & service charges on recharge, Here come the new Tax from Telenor
    IN ORDER TO PROVIDE BETTER SERVICES TO OUR VALUED SUBSCRIBERS, EACH BALANCE INQUIRY VIA *444# (RUPEE ACCOUNT BALANCE), *111# (FREE SMS BALANCE) AND *222# (FREE MINUTES BALANCE) STRINGS WILL BE CHARGED 10 PAISA (EXCLUSIVE OF TAX), WITH EFFECT FROM 1ST AUG 09.
    It means call rates & SMS rate kam but more taxes

  • obaid saeed

    Rather than dialing *444# people can dial 555 for balance and other inquiries
