  • Rehan

    Hmmmmmmm. Looks awesome

  • what is the adantage of these kind services in pak,aik aisy country mai jahan har 30 mint baad lite chali jati ho

    • sikandar ali awan

      Light chali jati hai , issi lia tu uconnect ha, ta ka mail check karna ka lia computer on na karna para our jo files, share ho chuki hain, wo light chala jana ka baad b dakhi ja sakain. haahahah.

  • Really nice but really expensive when I can get all of these features for free by combining different services.

    • sikandar ali awan

      I think it is 0.90 Rupee per day , and in 0.90 Rupee we can get multiple services, Email alerts, Email read, reply, reply all, delete even we can compose a new email using a simple text message.

      it really helped in my business, now i do not need a black berry service, which is 1500 Rupee per month means, 50 Rupee daily,

  • Valentine Mahmood

    Who uses MS outlook, many do not know MS outlook use hehehe, And I already stopped using MS non free products for long, BTW nice offer by Ufone.

  • sikandar ali awan

    Its a really mind blowing service. We can access our Files, folder and outlook using an ordinary mobile , even if we do not use MS Outlook express then we can configure our multiple email accounts directly to the UConnect, means we do not need outlook or any other email client service.

    I give (10/10) marks to this product.

  • Good effort.

    But overpriced service in my opinion. Firstly, ufone doesn’t offers a good bundle package of GPRS to prepaid users. Secondly they will charge you for each GPRS session.

    If you have half a decent phone. You can get these services for free. I have a G1 (Android) and an iPhone. iPhone pushes my e-mail directly to my device, so does G1. I use Telenor Postpaid, and it allows me to subscribe for unlimited internet for just Rs. 500/ month. Not only that, I get also use internet of my cellphone, on my laptop, wherever I go, whenever I go. And believe me telenor’s internet connectivity is the best in Pakistan…

    Mr. Sibtain, what percentage of cell phone users i Pakistan do you represent? With both android and iphone? 99% people have regular SMS capable phones, but not smartphones. This technology brings push email, PC access ad all sorts of other advanced features to these inexpensive phones. I think this is a wonderful service perfect for countries like Pakistan. We need our own innovative technology developed by people who understand our local market and usage scenarios. A US company would think along the lines you are suggesting, but the reality in Pakistan and US is very differnt. We need technology that fits in our environment and Uconnect definitely does that.

    I have been using since launch and I am very happy so far. I have linked my Gmail with it and also my home PC.
