Telenor Takes Down SMS Bundles During Eid

If you have been enjoying SMS bundles over the time, Eid is not going to be a best of times for sending text messages,

Telenor has suspended all text bundles till September 24th, 2009 to ensure the quality services.

Dear Customers, SMS Bundles have been suspended till 24th September 09 to provide you better service during EID. Please subscribe again on 24th September after 2pm. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I hope others won’t follow Telenor’s lead.

  • omer

    My ranking for operators
    No.1 -> UFONE AND WARID
    No.2 -> ZONG
    No.3 -> ……
    No.4 -> MOBILINK (may-b-link)
    No.5 -> TELENOR (thu)

  • Very shameless act 4rm Telenor as well s Mobilink too…….. hope Warid, Zong & Ufone dont do this……

  • ahsan

  • shit act

  • njm

    I am quite confident as atleast zong is not going to do this :)

  • Yaar Start Boycott Telenor Campaign. Telenor Sucks.

    Again I hate telenor bcoz.
    1. Expensive packages
    2. Expensive GPRS.
    3. Worst service.

    Aur ab enho ne sabit kar diya hai k enkay pass itni resources bhi nahi han k yeh network sanbhal saken.

    Stop using Telenor.

    My Ratings for service.
    1. Ufone
    2. Warid.
    3. Zong

    Worst Services
    Mobilink & Telenor

  • omer

    yes start ANTI TELENOR MOVEMENT

  • Muhammad Umair QUreehi

    what about existing msgs ???

    bohat hi ziada bura impact para hai telenor ka !!!

  • Hamayun Khan

    Haan yaar bas telenor chortain hai…laikin sirf 1 bande se nahi hota hum sab ko mil ke chorna pare ga….aur service bi aajkal bohut fazul ho gai hai…maza nahi ata…

  • Adeel

    ____ _____ Telenor. I was somewhat a fan of Telenor uptill now. As long as other operators don’t follow this noble example, we can punish Telenor by switching to other networks. But if all the operators have secretly colluded and if we see others following suit in the next few days, then PTA and the Competition Commission of Pakistan should intervene and fine them heavily for anti-competitive practices.

  • I never thought that Telenor will start this cheap stuff but I was wrong!

  • Adeel

    When Telenor launched in Pakistan, they were boldly proclaiming: “European Quality Standards arrive in Pakistan!”. Now over the years, we have seen what “European Quality Standards” truly are, according to Telenor. Actually, in Europe, these companies are kept from eating their costumers by the strict ‘danda’ of the government. If anybody was thinking that Pakistanis are the only ones who can’t operate without danda, they were WRONG! I hope the people from Telenor (and all other operators for that matter) read these posts.

    When Telenor launched in Pakistan, they were boldly proclaiming: “European Quality Standards Arrive In Pakistan!”. Now over the years, we have seen what “European Quality Standards” truly are, according to Telenor. Actually, in Europe, these companies are forced to maintain minimum quality specifications and are kept from eating their costumers by the strict ‘danda’ of the government. If anybody was thinking that Pakistanis are the only ones who can’t operate without danda, they were WRONG! I hope the people from Telenor (and all other operators for that matter) read these posts.

    • Ahmad yar

      adeel bhai z 100% right

  • Hope that other companies may not follow this Step

  • eAhmadNawaz

    MNP se convert karwa lo bhai lo.. NO. wohi service change. wo apko call karainge k kion ja rhy han than ap suna dena..

  • Kashee

    Hey propakistani visitors let me explain something good. Tonight I called helpline to ask about when they will close these sms bundle and the CRO replied that it is already closed but today I sent a lot of sms’s and my balance was same so again I called helpline to confirm that when will the stop these bundles i mean from eid day till 24th or from when and I was surprised to hear that only new subscription to sms bundle is closed and those user who have already subscribed and have sms in their buckets they can normally use it during eid days….I am lucky as i have more then 300 sms’s and they are valid till 25th….Yahoo.

    • Adeel

      Most will not have such luck. Mine also expires on 22nd Sep.

    • Abrar

      Same happened with me , i have a lot of sms left , so i am not affected ,only new subscriptions are closed for a short time

    • Hammy

      I’m completely as my susscription expires on 21st

  • Abdul Qudoos

    Time to Make Money :D

  • Fawad Malik

    I totally agree with u all and I decide to shift to warid..please join hands and bye to telenor….

  • Eb

    That’s it I’m porting my number to ufone or warid now! This was the last straw! This shows how they value their customers! Whenever u hear the same bull about doing something for better service u know it’s just to screw u over! First they started charging for balance enquiry etc n now this…u can kiss my u know what now telenor…it was not nice knowing u

    • Adil

      Don’t port to Ufone, port to Warid, its a lot better than Ufone

      • Adeel

        I agree…

        • omer

          disagree ufone rates r v econimical ….. warid r a bit expensive also the quality is more or less the same

        • Hamid

          strongly agree WARID POST PAID no match in market best network voice and Data both

      • Hammy

        Completely agree

  • muhammad salim

    telenor wont make a lot of money cus they stopped resubscription of this service only since friday.package is for one week so most ppl already have their sms’s intact and will use them during eid days.only few ppl whose subscription expired on friday,satday will face problems.the vast majority will still enjoy virtually free sms.telenor has been stupid,if they wanted to make money they should have stopped resubscription since sunday not since friday.most ppl’s packages will work easily through out the eid holidays.

  • Naseer Haider

    My recommendation ,Mobilink Postpaid :)

  • TELENOR Just CRAP Big Time :@
    It Shows the repu of Telenor!
    All other Ufone and zong companies do their best for making their reputation good in the market! and telenor doing such kinda cheap things to cut out their customers!

    Telnor Just :@

  • Adeel

    If Telenor were trying to set themselves apart from the competition, they have now proved that they are no different as far as unilateral unfair steps are concerned. All operators are now hell-bent on looting as much as possible but Warid has surprisingly resisted the temptation to a good extent.

  • Muhammad Umair QUreehi

    warid k glow pe shift hojaoo :)

    700 sms for just 7 rs
    aur call rates bhi djuice se sastey haIn .. + 10 FnF

    till now … aik msg bhi nahi kya 4 din se :D
    em using ufOne :)

  • Zubair

    Warid the best network and post paid even better just try it , just want to share warid post customers are more than sum of all other operators correct me if i am wrong

  • Telenor what you are doing. Shut down your business in Pakistan. Plz!!!!!!!!!!!!! don’t try to make us fool.
    Actually someone wrote write that telenor is running short of resources.
    Plz plz plz invest some money that you are making from your customer.Otherwise you are going to be a no more !
    There are so many rivals in the sea. Hurry up telenor. Might be you will be loosing so many people like mine.

  • Jibran

    Bhaiyon Telenor walon ne toh dikhadi is bar EID pe sms free krne ke bjaye package hi temporary band krdia .bullshit.
    men to kehta hon sbke sb WARID ke GLOW pacakge pe ajoa buht hi best hai.jb tk punish nhi kroge sahi nhi honge yeh log .woh waqt yeh bhul gye jb logo ne inke banners hatadiye they apni shops se kesa maafi mang rhe they yeh log.jb denmak ke kahani hui thi.inke sath yehi kuch kero take phir mafi mangen.kia khyal hai bhaion.

    WARID IS BEST
    1.no 12 pesa charges on balance inquiry
    2.Delivery reports
    3.Lowest Rates +10FNF

  • Fakhre alam

    I am gonna port to warid

  • Adeel Akbari

    I was quite a fan of telenor – but now: Telenor Sucks!!!

    Let’s all port to Ufone! :) At least they have the decency to give superb packages on superb times!

  • hamid

  • Adnan
