    i wonder that even after giving free calls offer to dozen of citites zong is not able to catch much subscribers

    • Yasir Latif

      Dear, it’s not important that if mobile networks give free calls offer then they can gain users, because including me and others which I know around me, are still using their existing networks and they did not avail such offered by zong or ufone….

      @majid, you are saying right. Other three ufone, warid and zong don’t need to do such kind of social activities. I also read news that mobilink (Orascom company) related with Israel. Therefore most of our officials are using ufone cause of security factor.

  • umer khan

    umer sb, i’m so sorry to say k, ‘aap abhi tak bht barey ahmaqon ki dunya mein rehtey hain’!!! whenever there is a matter of vested interests, all nationalism is put aside. Be open eyed jinaab! Mobilink make their ads in India though they call ‘Apna Hai’. Telenor hire christian in their Islamic Ads. We people are really closed eyed or want to see the world our own way. :(

    • The Truth

      i amazes me how industry measures get tied up in religious ferver, thats why the world has been slow to respond to our plight becuase we are always confusing world politics with the true needs of the country.

      Go live in a cave if you downt want to use telephone service, what about the Arabs who screw over this country everyday becuase of the PTCL deal, what about the Chinese who subjecate our Uiger brothers and sisters in China

      the world is an ugly place – but dont make up stories that help you beleive that people like you are always right – you are no better than the rest

      • usama khalid

        Mr. Truth, your reply has already been replied, “We people are really closed eyed and want to see the world our own way. :(“. I think you are either from Mobilink or Telenor if I closely read your reply. If both these operators can’t handle their ideas well, then why do these people play with the spiritualism of Mslims and Pakistanis???

    Can I simply say what a relief to seek out somebody who really knows what theyre speaking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know how one can deliver a problem to light and make it important. More individuals must read this and perceive this facet of the story. I cant imagine youre no more common because you undoubtedly have the gift.
