Charges on Balance Inquiry Withdrawn by Ufone & Telenor

Ufone has taken back the message from its website which said Balance Inquiries through USSD would be charged at 10 paisas plus tax per instance, while Telenor’s website is saying that charges will be imposed soon.

Earlier both the companies had announced that all balance inquiries will be charged 10 paisas plus tax from August 1, 2009.

Responses from customers, and involvement of PTA made both the companies re-consider their decision.

    jub telenor call center per rabta karo, bhai kio nahi chal rahi telenor balance checking service aur easy load, to kehtay detay hain “chand network upgradations ke wajah say services ko temp disable kia gaya hai”

    phir meray jesay b unko keh detay hain haftay main 4 din services he upgrade hoti rehti hain baki 3 din wo he slow mehangi services.
