Ufone recently introduced UMonitor; a service with which customers will be able to monitor calls on three Ufone numbers, with their consent of course.
With this offer customers can now create a list of selected numbers who can make or receive calls on/from your monitored numbers.
For instance I add this number 0333-544xxxx into my monitor list, then I can define those number who can make calls to 0333-544xxxx. Similarly, 0333-544xxxx will not be able to make calls to number that are not white-listed by me.
In case the monitored phone number tries to contact a number not listed in the contacts allowed, the subscriber will get an announcement ‘You don’t have the facility to make outgoing call’.
If someone makes a call to the monitored number & that person is not allowed call then he/she will listen to the following announcement: ‘The number you have dialed is powered off’
UMonitor can be handy for businessmen who wants to monitor their employees or you can simply make sure who your kid is contacting and are contacted from.
