Ufone Revises ULoan, UShare and Helpline Call Charges

Ufone is revising charges on different services and one can easily guess that they have been increased.

ULoan:

Ufone had earlier revised it’s ULoan amount and was offering a loan of Rs. 25 in two instalments i.e. subscribers were able to borrow Rs. 15 in first installment and then another Rs. 10 in second.

Now Ufone is giving away loan of Rs, 30 in three instalments i.e. Rs. 10 each but with following conditions:

  • 1st instalment of Rs. 10 for all customers
  • 2nd instalment of Rs. 10 for those customers who are on Ufone network since 180 days
  • 3rd instalment of Rs. 10 for those customers who are on Ufone network since 360 days

Also on returning the loan, service charges of Rs. 1.95 will be deducted irrespective of the loan amount. So whether you take loan of Rs. 10 or Rs. 30 you will have to return Rs. 1.95 in addition to original borrowed amount.

UShare:

Ufone has increased service charges on UShare service as well. Now on sharing a balance of Rs. 50 or less, service charges of Rs. 2.5+t will be deducted and above Rs. 50, subscriber has to pay 5% of the shared amount.

Here is the message that Ufone is circulating:

To share balance………Charge: Rs. 2.5+t on amount upto Rs. 50. For above Rs. 50 5%+t of amount. U can share Rs. 1-200/transaction. *828# dialing charges Rs. 1.5+tax inclusive in service charges.

Helpline Charges:

From 15th July, 2011 Ufone will charge Rs. 1.20 for calling helpline i.e 333 and another Rs. 1.20 if you want to contact customer support.

Right now Ufone is charging Rs. 1.20 for calling helpline and contacting customer support is free.

  • Ahmed

    We are not far away when only ringing someone or “missed call” will be charged with 1Rs + Tax per missed call.

  • Abdul Rehman

    this is ridiculous, calling plans are getting cheaper and cheaper. but administrative charges are now so high that offdet it. secondly every one looks for call rates, no body check this thing and these companies are getting advantage of it
    pta is doing what?
    rest, i guess this is the only service with 36% tax i guess but growing.

    • zain

      you are right. i am in favor of decreasing administrative charges and increasing call charges( hourly packages)

  • salman

    ufone started to deduct balance so that we call to call center and more ripped off by them.

    this happened yesterday evening in peshawar and surrounding areas. and thil increase in charges and then doing pathetic tricks will soon be followed by other operators.

    and pta is doing nothing as usual

  • Ufone thir class and poor network services.

  • TALHA PAKISTANI

  • hellodrsoul

    These charges effect every user while hourly packages are for young colorful people only ;P). If every ufone user switch to other operator ( before they dig in), we can convey a message to ufone to mind its greedy attitude.

  • Nabeel Khan

    maine to Ufone sirf ek khaas caller tune ki waja se rakha hua he jo k koi or network nahi de raha

  • Saad Durrani

    Major typo: The name of U-Loan was changed to U-Advance.

      good one :)

  • Hasan

    Nothing gonna change by porting out of Ufone. All other networks are charging in similar way, hidden charges, daily charges, call center charges, service charges, etc. Pakistan Telecommunication Authority is going to do nothing ever!!! Its us the users has to do something about it, i personally don’t make calls now and have stopped texting as well so that these mobile companies do get the pain and loss. Same policy is applied on Telenor and Warid.

    Get up everyone!!!

  • True Feedback

    Zong image in Cellular is like Ambassy or K-2 Cigrattes.
    Rates might be cheap but the image of Company is Cheap too.
    Above is my opinion but how people feels,in majority is same.

    Ufone a good Company having good relations with customers, retailers, and good Cultural image.
    In fact, this company could become No.1

  • Simple Client

    Ufone,is best Company, once i was travelling on road and it was 4 am early morning, shops were closed and I was in emergency,when i came to know my balance is finished.
    I sms to my wife and asked about the Code of Advance or to avail loan.
    She SMS me about 456 and it feels me so good that i got loan or advance whatever they called it.
    Made three four urgent calls and kept few rupees for SMS till the shops opened and i recharged with three cards of PKR 100.
    This is a true experience of mine I swear.
