  • Arm in TP

    Is it that difficult for people to use twitter on a mobile, Telenor is crowing over every little thing they do. If all operators did this the new papers would be filled with junk ! Warid are asleep my friend, they are waiting to launch a new post paid package in a pre paid market…… More pointless telcom news

    — Is it that difficult for people to use twitter on a mobile

    How do you do it if your provider does not support it? Do you use their international number? Or do you use EDGE?

    Twitter is absolutely free on zong,if u have sms pkg.
    So no point for spending 1+tax/sms.

  • raheel

    Around 40 to 50% tweets are missing on telenor…

    boyz and galz twitter is free from zong so get it man what are u waiting for and reading my comment

  • Amir

    I think only Zong is providing free twitter messaging(on sms bucket plans). The rest of the providers should also follow this, in order to facilitate their customers.

  • Rehan

    Waiting for WARID
    But it should be like Zong, sms with SMS Packages not with separate Charges like telenor.
