  • K R

    LOLZZZ these type of offers can attract good number of students and labor class… Ufone keep it up focusing on these two segments of market who don’t have enough money to spend and don’t focus on the segments of market who actually earn and spend enough money.

  • Zubair

    FIRST UFONE SHOULD CONSENTRATE ON SIGNAL AND SERIVICE QUALITY AND THEN THESE KIND OF SERVICES.
    KARACHI IS THE MAIN CITY OF PAKISTAN BUT WE ARE NOW FACING THE PROBLEM OF WEAK SIGNALS AND CALL DROP.
    SO UFONE SHOULD DO SOMETHING FOR THIS.
    THANKS….

    • K R

      @ Zubair
      There is a up-gradation in South Region i.e. Karachi and Sindh so you might be facing signal and connectivity issues in Ufone Network. As Ufone is having its own Optimization team working along with Huawei team I wonder if they have benchmarking KPIs for network performance like Telenor and Warid.

  • Muhammad Zohair Chohan

    I don’t know where Ufone is heading, why would someone need a BGM when mostly on ufone we have to put extra efforts to listen the other party? Plus their TVC team is creating Rubbish ads these days . . .

  • Kashif

    Rajal786 media player is working fine in backgroung in Nokia 6630. don`t know about other sets but mostly this trick works.

  • Kashi

    Instead of coming up with useless and silly offers,Ufone should introduce weekly SMS package to all prepaid packages, which is currently available only on Life packages.

  • neha

    No wonder why Ufone has come down to the 4th position from the 2nd in the cellular market. Despite that they are promoting such ethically wrong and telling people to cheat their parents and bosses and telling lie to people. Shame on Ufone’s marketing team who has developed this service.

    Ufone should think about it again is this something what their moral values allow them to do ???

    Ufone should be banned we should all raise our voice and protest against it
