  • Warid is well and truly the best cellular network in Pakistan. I’ve had it for 7 or 8 years and there has not been a single occasion where I’ve seen signal drops (in Rawalpindi) and VERY rarely has there been an occasion where I was unable to make a call because of the network.
    On the other hand in the same house if I’m using UFone or Telenor I have to go outside to get reasonable call quality.
    Credit goes to Warid for not whoring itself out like all other networks; especially UFone.

    • Yes, I am also a warid customer and I am very satisfied with its performance. I used ufone for a few days but I was not even able to call anyone because of network overload even if my call is connected somehow I will get the most pathetic call quality. My suggestion is just keep yourself away from ufone.

    • I had always been a strong advocate of Ufone. And Ufone still is the most economical network out there. However i shifted to Warid quite recently and have found its signal quality and call connectivity quite exceptional.. Keep it up guys!

    • why angry?

      i dont saw any add in this blog because add blocker block them.

      • I am surfing through iPhone so the ads are covering the whole screen with countdown to let you skip ads.

  • I had always been a strong advocate of Ufone. And Ufone still is the
    most economical network out there. However i shifted to Warid quite
    recently and have found its signal quality and call connectivity quite
    exceptional. Keep it up guys!

  • True when it comes to quality Warid is the best and yea Quality comes with a price too but even than warid is not too expensive because warid didn’t lowered its call rates and than again increased like jazz, U & telenor… Warid has always offered great quality at reasonable price

  • I am cell phone user since 2001 and started with maybelink in 2003 i called maybelink help line that my call are not connecting since last 1 hours and got reply this is not maybelink issue it is same every where in the world with all cellular operator. That day thought have been planned that I will never stay with maybelink (still worst network). In 2007 i ported my number to Warid in first month of porting. Since than i am satisfied Post / prepaid customer of Warid. Warid rocks
