Ufone Launches Nano SIMs in Pakistan

Nano Sim Launch

Ufone today announced to have made Nano SIMs available in Pakistan, in real, to cater the needs of iPhone 5 enthusiasts.

In a statement issued today, Ufone said that it has become the only operator to launch the Nano SIM yet. Unlike the micro SIM which was used for the iPhone 4 and 4s the iPhone 5 works on a special sized Nano SIM which cannot be adapted from a regular SIM.

Ufone Nano SIM’s will be available in selected customer service centers in Islamabad, Lahore & Karachi. Ufone said that Nano SIMs will be sold at the price of regular SIMs, i.e. Rs. 100 per Nano SIM.

The specification of the Nano SIM is quite different. Not only is it smaller, it’s 12 percent thinner from 0.76 mm to 0.67 mm. iPhone lovers in Pakistan are already anticipating the arrival of the new product from Apple and Ufone is determined to cater to every need of its valued customers.

Akbar Khan, Chief Marketing Officer said,”Ufone takes pride in introducing the latest and most unique value added services and the new SIM adaptation is the right move for the company’s growth strategy,” adding, “iPhone 5 will give a clear advantage to Ufone customers as they will be the privileged ones in Pakistan to enjoy iPhone way ahead of others.”

    why are companies introducing nano sim when iphone is not yet officially introduced here? this introduction by these companies only acknowledges the fact that phones are being imported through unauthorised channels.

    • Tech Guru

    • Dua321

      i thought that PTA was about to issue licenses for 3G and 4G LTE in Pakistan at one point. What happened to it? You guys still using 2G. Its gonna suck on iPhone5, man!!!

      • XE>Zain

        3G & 4G Auction is going to happen in December 2012 it means we’ll be able to use it by the end of this fiscal year or by start of next year.

        • MMJ

          3G maybe in 2013 or 2014 and 4G in 2025~~~~

          • jiqbal

            bhai inshAllah we will use 3G in 3000 & 4G in 4000

    • Farzan Sajwani

      Really? Try playing a high-end game or using a resource-hogging app on that iPhone 2G of yours, and lemme know how that works out for you. :)

      • Salman Abbas

        LMAO iPhone Generation (iPhone xG) != GSM Generation (GSM xG)

    • umar zafar

      Galaxy s3, Nokia lumia, Note 2 all are also 4g, so it means if we are in pakistan we shouldn’t buy these phones? there are plenty of other features also for what people bought a smart phone.

  • Rabia Khan

    Gathering of top management at launching ceremony of Nano SIM looks like inauguration ceremony of some hydro-electrical system OR launching of missile (Big Boss is going to press “launch” button) lols :D

    • M.Aswad Mehtab

      Exactly its just a Sim card for crying out loud , and max users will be in hundreds only :P

    • Tech Guru

      hahhaahaha … i agree with not a big some atomic bomb launch but Nano SIM is the Future … and its called forward thinking ….

    • Nano

      Pakistan maien Nano SIM ka launch hona kisi Shaheen-III missile sy kam nahi hai….

    • Tech Guru

        • umar zafar


  • Shahwani

    For those who already have iPhone5 they can cut their old full-size or microSIM cut out to make nano. I have did it with two of the SIMS and it works perfectly fine.

  • Ahmed

    Glad they launched, Mobilink haven’t yet launched Nano sims. Checked from their office.



  • Riaz

    There must be atleast 3G if not 4G

    • Muzammil
