Mobilink Goes Down Atleast in Isb/Rwp

We are getting news that Mobilink is Down in Islamabad/Rawalpindi, at least. We got this confirmation from multiple ProPakistani readers.

Reportedly, most of Mobilink customers are not receiving signals, while when Mobilink numbers are dialed, system says that Your cell number is switched off. They are receiving “Invalid SIM”, “No SIM Card”, or similar issues on their cell phones.

Mahmood Akhtar from Rawalpindi writes to us,

It has been noticed by large number of Mobilink customers that their prepaid and postpaid sims are not working today. All Mobilink connections are continuously giving an error like invalid sim, sim not inserted etc.

Update: 12:37 PM PST

Network is reportedly getting back to normal, in Islamabad. However, customers are still complaining “No SIM” issues.

It has been learned that network started facing issues early morning, around 7 AM – problem stretched over the north region, including Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Attock and other cities.

No Official words yet over the issue.

  • hello i live in peshawar and right now when im writing this all my jazz sims are down i also confirm this from my nabers and frnd’s

    all sims in my area gulberg peshawar are blocked

  • Well In my case the error message was ‘SIM Card registration failed’ and happened around 7:00 AM.
    Now the signals are back (11:27 AM)

  • Thats right, I am using a mobilink’s postpaid connection and it has the same prob in rwp isb.
    im experiencing all sorts of errors
    sim card reg failed
    number powered off (even when i called my own number)
    system cannot recognize this number

  • Technical issues may occur in any network but this should not be a routine system should be stable.

  • look like the old days of mobilink monopoly is going to end pretty soon now the days of glory are going to bee ended
    hahahahah good man what else can you expect in this country no aata no chini and now no signal hahahahaha come on now wtf….

  • I knew that Mobilink service is getting lamer and lamer – (If any thing beyond lame, do tell me)
    but this – this is a very sad news, I think there are only 1 or 2 intelligent people in mobilink Islamabad but they only want money for doing nothing.

    One of my friend (in Mobilink) told me that SIMS are not working because there was an expiration date set when Mobilink started in Pakistan. but due lapse of time and no intelligent personal presence, this was overlooked.

    Now that thing is far of the scale, I don’t believe it,
    but if its Mobilink, I have to believe

    People of Moblink, you were named as best Cellular service in Pakistan and you also won the worst cellular service in Pakistan.

  • aamir bhai,

    give us some new news, we are use to with this kinda news that mobilinnk is down, its not the first time….
    aur sunaoo…

  • the network does not go through upgrades during the day when there is the most customer traffic. it is normally done from after mid night ……. they probably did do an upgrade and they screwed it up and had to roll it back …….. Not professional at all…… Zong will buy them for sure …

  • LOL Last day I saw a big man taller customer punching a Mobilink franchise officer LOL ROFL ROFL, When people and police came, the customer told that he is visiting Mobilink franchise for the third time for the activation of his connection which was deactivated by mobilink three months ago, and every time he came in franchise they took his NIC copy every time, but his connection is still blocked, he wanted to know where are all old NIC photocopies which mobilink franchise took from him before ROFL LOL LOL, do you know why I am LOL? because I was also there for the third time with the NIC photocopy of my sister, her jazz was blocked one month ago due to some address verification errors. Every time i went to mobilink franchise they took NIC photocopy and said me connection will be activated within three hours, but still the connection of my sister is inactive.

  • yes this is the case with my number too. most of my friends complained me that my number remains powered off always which is not true. plz mobilink ko koi samjhai k SMP tu ban gaya hai but service ko bahtar rakhay.
