By Chand

It has been reported that Warid changed the tariff of its famous brand GLOW without informing its customers.

Glow offers attractive calling rates and most importantly free call to 10 members named as Glow gang.

The Free call can be availed every day from 11pm-8am and 24 hours on weekends. Free call means that you will be charged for the first minute, which were 2.25+tax at the time of launch but now its 2.99+tax

Though Warid has clearly stated in terms and conditions that prices are subject to change at Warid’s discretion.

Warid says it had informed customers through SMS – but not all of them Got this message.

  • Not only this, they also increased the FNF addition/deletion charges (Rs. 5 now) and glow package conversion charges (25 rupees).

    Warid is famous for such acts, I remember 3 years back when Warid launches first sms bundles packages in Pakistan, at the time of lunch activation/deactivation was free and ZOOM UNLIMITED was really unlimited, but suddenly (without informing) they increased the daily charges (6 to 8 rupees),

    started charging activation/deactivation charges (Rs 2.5) and limit the number of messages to 750, after some days daily charges gone to 7 rupees and number of sms to 250, since that I’d left Warid. Also Caller tune and many other VAS (activation/deactivation) were free initially.

    This news was available officially in newspapers on Sunday or Monday.
    But still nice with best network quality.

  • Harry

    @ eAhmed Nawaz: Its still the hidden brand with best package out there for Youth, Ahmed.

    Compare and see for yourself :)

  • Yasir

    Doesn’t matter if the offer is good or bad. What matters is that these companies change their packages without informing the customers and PTA keeps sleeping.

    They can increase the rate to 200rs per min but the customer should know before making the call not after checking the balance.

    Warid has some very innovative packages, like for post paid customers they charge activation fee equal to the amount of one month zoom subscription etc etc.

  • Muhammad Khan

    warid has some better services and packages, but the problem with warid is its poooor marketing and customer support.

  • Jam

    I have been using warid for last 4 years, always trying to ignore the low quality of warid in every aspect, but i think I should change my number to some other nitwork.
    Warid not worthy.

  • Asher

    Dear Pro Pakistani,
    On subscription of Rs 7 sms package, u must have rs 7 – the same amount in credit balance.
    otherwiz the amount in advance charge by warid will go useless, coz u can’t make sms as per warid terms n conditions..
