There are three options including; Blocking the number on voluntary basis, restoring the number blocked on voluntary basis and blocking the number in-case of stolen through SMS command from any other number.

Voluntary blocking of services by a customer stops all the services including daily/monthly rentals. A customer can keep its number voluntarily blocked for a maximum period of three months.  Using simple SMS commands a number can be easily blocked or restored. In-case of stolen, number can be blocked from any other Warid number using simple SMS command. The secret t-pin makes the whole process completely secure.

Speaking on Improved Customer Experience, Warid’s Vice President Customer Services, Mr. Nauman Fakhar said:

“I am glad that we are far innovative in providing many solutions which are offered for the very first time in Pakistan.

In the absence of this service, customers had to call on helpline or had to visit the business center/franchise and now just a simple SMS base command will serve the purpose.

Warid customers have the privilege to take advantage from this service as no other operator in the industry is offering such service.

With great passion to serve, we aim to continue serving our customers the best, making their mobile using a fulfilled yet handy and joyful experience all together

  • Instructions over Skype to kill, British citizen convicted for Murder

    A British citizen was convicted for Murder in a Norwegian court because he passed on instructions over Skype to kill a 1 year old girl.

    53 year old Amaaz Qureshi instructed her online girlfriend Yasmeen Chaudhary over Skype to drown her 1 year old girl that used to disturb them while they were ‘romancing’ via Skype. Amaaz, who is already married, was convicted in a Norwegian court after her girlfriend Yasmeen revealed her name during the investigations. She said that it was Amaaz who asked her to drown the girl and she did accordingly. It was only after the child lost her senses that she called the Emergency services and she was delivered to the hospital where she died next day.

    According to the details, the 1 year old baby girl was subjected to various tortures like her head being put under the water tap, water sprayed right on to her face and even her feet were tied with tape by Yasmeen as instructed by Amaaz so that she couldn’t sleep at night. Little girl was placed on flooring and Amaaz even said Yasmeen to put red spices in the mouth of the kid.

    Amaaz was extradited by British Police to Norwegian authorities last year and he has now been formally convicted of his shameful crimes.
