After Telenor and Zong, now Ufone is also offering free incoming MMS, which means Ufone customers can now receive MMS without any charge.
Earlier, Ufone was charging same tariff for both sending and receiving MMS.
Additionally, like before, you can send Multimedia Messages to Ufone numbers via email. Process is very simple, just attach images, songs, or anything with your email and send to [email protected], for instance: [email protected] and that’s it.
Note: Make sure attachment size is considerable, 100 KB or less is good.
Tip: You can use email to MMS service to transfer files to friends n family, files of any type, even Word documents. While receiving those files (in MMS), you can save them in phone memory and then transfer to your computer for further use.
Please note that this offer has not been announced on Ufone’s website as of now.
Thanks to Sufiyan Shakil for notifying us about this.
