Ufone Offers 2 Numbers in 1 SIM

Ufone is now offering this unique service, which allows its customers to operate two Ufone numbers on one SIM. This feature can be handy for those having two numbers at a time, maybe one for personal use and another for business usage.

With this service you will get a virtual number on your original number. Meaning two numbers on one SIM. With Double Number you can switch off your business number while keeping your other number open for family and friends or simply operate two businesses with one SIM.

How to use this service:
Subscribing to this service is simple. There are multiple ways to subscribe to this service:

Send SUB to 660
Dial *66# from your Ufone number

Once you subscribe to the service the system will randomly select an idle number from Double Number inventory. An SMS will be sent to your number:

“Your Double Number is 033XXXXXXXX. Charges Rs.30 + Tax / Month. Please dial 66 followed by any number and make calls from your Double Number.”

Example: if your assigned Double Number is 03335100011 and you want to make a call to 03331234567 you will dial 6603331234567. The receiver will receive the number from 03335100011.

Similarly to send an SMS to 03331234567 you will write the SMS and send it with the prefix “66” i.e.

Type message: “How are you?” and send it to 6603331234567.

The receiver will receive the SMS from 03335100011.

Both users can talk to each other whereas billing will be done to primary number on per minute basis.
If 03331234567 want to make call or SMS to 03335100011, user will simply dial 03335100011 and the call/SMS will be routed to 03335100012 (the primary number).

  • Ufone User

    All the IVR services are unavailable, as IVR 660 is not accessible.

  • farhad

    interesting but tooo much confusing :) but lets see. one thing that needs clarification is that lets suppose i have sms bundle active on and i send a msg on some ones double number then i will be charged .50/sms. is this so. if it is like that then its unfair as how can some body know that it is double number.

    • Hammer man

  • Omer

    extremly useless service, v’l b having same service(specially signal strength issues), same package, same operator issues etc……. what is the use of other number ? again a pathatic service from ufone……..

    • Hammer man

      i don’t see it as a favourite VAS among ufone’s users either.
      esp when the number is also RANDOMLY chosen than offered to be selected from say a list etc.

    • ufone.com

      i totally agree with omer ……….. useless service …. just another tactic to gather money

    • shah

      My vote also goes to u, rublish service

  • Owais

    do u think bcs of this service china mobile market will effect ???? it may according to me

    • No you will get random number & when you turn on your mobile you’ll get option to which number you wanna use. China mobile offering much handsome then this service but UFone is best at his own

    • Saad Durrani

      No it would not. Dual SIM phones are future. Samsung is coming out with a touchscreen phone with Dual SIM. Even, Nokia is introducing new budget line phones with dual sims soon.

  • Yasir Latif

    Ufone simply the BEST.

  • Pakistani Urdu Forum For IT Education

    A really good and unique offer bu Ufone.
    But 30ruppes+Tax will be charged per month.
    And a randomly number will be allocated.

  • Pagli

    Ufone Suckss…………..

  • Adil Zeeshan

    Can I use SMS/Voice Buckets on my Double Number?

  • H.

    If I remember correctly, Warid’s service was much more user friendly. This sounds really complicated. The utility of the service is definitely there for a niche group, but if the usability is not good, it might not fly.

  • Usama

    It seems everyone is commenting simply by reading the article, i on the other hand have used the service and feel it is incredible. this is going to be a big benefit especially to the ladies who are afraid to give out their numbers. plus one can block any number or all incoming calls on their double number. its simple you dial 660 and you have access to blocking anyone you like. the biggest benefit is that one does not have to give out their actual number at any given time this will help avoid all those your wish to keep at a distance.

    • reyan

      whats the use for call blocking 420 and smart code service??????

  • reyan

    This offer has its some good points but really complicated and costly.
    Dual sim phones are now so common in markets why to pay this much for double number.
    Comparitively warid dual number sim is much better if u really wanna keep a dual number sim.

  • Fakhre alam

    Hammer man seems to be much affected

  • hamza butt

    so Ufone making things easy to cheat lie and make other suffer from different uses of this offer

    • aamina.mehmood

      hamza and other fellows, i dont think that mobile users now a day are so simple and ignorant what hamza sb thinks. i personally think, its all about offer. All operators offer convenience to the customers. Get that offer what suits you, and simply dont subscribe to the offer which doesnt suites you. SIMPLE!!!!!! We need to see the ‘half glass full’ instead ‘half glass empty’. :) Be positive jinaab.

  • Bilal Sarwari

    i still not understand why ufone promoting these kind of services? it only can be used to make people fool nothing more, its disadvantages are more, I hope PTA will take any strong action against this

    • Brother you don’t have solid reason to stand against this offer if any mobile company offer new service its good for you! in sense you said there is disadvantages there is disadvantages of mobile phone also. What say you? PTA should put ban on all telecoms companies in Pakistan.

      • Bilal Sarwari

        I am talking about this service only not about all others,

        this service is only used to make fraud, nothing more, this service is only stupid nothing more

  • Dk

    Hell with Ufone.
    They keep making advertisements millions of worth.
    They keep promoting insanely stupid services.
    I suggest: Ufone,work on your networking problems.Place some signal towers here and there.Because as far as i can tell,your friggin network does NOT work in any major area properly.
    Then think about other stuff.
    Geez!

    • usama khalid

      o dk sb, the millions what you are talking about, are these millions going from your pocket? we people are made for criticism only. aur haan!!! aap ne towers ki bhi baat ki. Kya tower aap ne ufone se apne ghar pe lagwana hai???

  • BILAL x9

    pasia ka ziya ha

  • Yasir Latif

    Ufone needs to focus on the wide network and voice quality. In the city of Lahore, signal and voice are not clear in some areas. Ufone is just spending money on the heavy advertisements, not focusing on the network quality and 30sec tariff. Due to such kind of policy, Ufone now on 3rd position. If they did not change then one day they will behind the market place…….. simply

  • Yasir Latif

    Simple mathematic equations: low price = low quality.

    • I want to sell toffee in the price of 500rs saying your above line :D best price best toffee will make you fly in the sky

  • aamina.mehmood

    Nice offer… Ive got my double SIM. It works nice for me exclusively. Master SIM for my fnf and the double SIM number will be on my CV for job searching… YES!!!!!! :)

  • Ac1d-Ra1n

    Ewwwwww only one word PATHETIC

  • nice move from Ufone but the service is available in some other mobile operators too.

    but the difference is about rates.

  • ice

    Warid’s service is useless because it is only for PostPaid and requires you to go to customer care and get a special sim. Also only one number can be switched on at one time.

    Ufone’s service is good for privacy reasons and also because 2 people can share a phone if they cannot afford to purchase a phone on their own

  • Martial arts supplies Canada

    Great way for looting the folks..lol

  • Usman

    Now Pre-paid and Post-pay subscribers of Double Number service will be able to make on-net calls (Ufone to Ufone) on hourly rate of Rs.9.99+Tax. In order to initiate Double Number Hourly call, users will dial 67 (Prefix) followed by Ufone number. Example: 6703331234567.

  • Naveed Raza

    This service is very effective and unique. But there should be sms and call packeges available with double number also.

  • rabzz

    i just dont understand one thing that for double num they charge u from real num or other one? or do u have to recharge both num?

    • Sane

      “Can I transfer balance from my Double Number?

      Balance transfer is not possible through Double number, as it will only be used for CLI purpose.”
      src: http://ufone.com/mobpro_doubleNumber.aspx

      According to the above statement, the charges will be deducted from Real Number.
      So u re-charge only the Real Number.
