  • get a CDMA handset, put a vfone SIM and get rid of these ever increasing service charges. :)

    • Ufone following the footsteps of maybe link and telenor.so zimeydar tu ye dono companies hoi.

      • telenor waley sab se phelay har cheez pe charges barhatey hain,baad maindoosri company un k dekha dekhi keemat barhati hain.

  • That time isnt that far away when they will charge for the so called “missed call” as well.

  • Ad is tarha dia hy jaisey pehly Rs. 1 rate tha aur ab Rs. 0.15 kar dia hy. What a “Zaleel Harkat”!

  • Wow, They are providing you a great service so they think its their right to increase charges. :)

  • Guys, Mobilink and telenor are already charging 15 paisas so what is the fuss all about? Everyone does realize that these companies are here to make profit, these are no NGOs!

  • gotta hate these ever rising charges of so called service improvements and balance inquiries…!!!

  • They are just looting innocent people and pick pocketing us and its not just ufone but almost all famous networks are doing the same.

    its a famous quote that competition in many companies make service good and down the rates but i astonished that which type of competition is this that rates are going up and service is going down and they name it that to make call quality better we increased the rates, what a lolz

    Our government is also behind it because they put more and more taxes on telecome companies and telecome companies increase the tax and put it on GAREEB AWAM

  • government, companies, multinationals, businessman are aware of the reality that pakistanis have enough money to spend, but to show the world they always complain that we don’t have money, we are poor etc. etc.

    pakistani people pay high to purchase even basic food items, like we outside world are watching pakistanis in ramadan or can afford any price to use mobile services / sets.

    pakistani nation are not aware of their consumer rights. sorry to say, now foreigners have an impression about pakistanis that they only bark for electricity, gas, proudly lose their lives in terrorist activities, traffic accidents, mobile snatching but can’t do anything for their rights. cause if they raise their voice, islamic republic of pakistan government have police and other resources to send ‘ pakistani people ‘ back into their cages.

    so why pakistan people always complain, if they can’t raise their voice or fight for their proper rights.
