Mobilink Phone Trade Program: Exchange Your Old Phones with 3G Enabled Handsets


Mobilink has launched Pakistan’s first “Phone Trade Program” enabling its customers to exchange their old cell phones with the latest 3G supported smart phones of their choice by paying the differential cost.

The program is aimed at providing Mobilink customers with affordable access to 3G smartphones through a trusted retail channel for exchange of their devices. The newly purchased phones will come with Mobilink pre-loaded 3-month data bundle offer.

Customers can exchange their old handsets, after proper verification of IMEI and security checks, with brand new 3G supported smart phones with pre-loaded data bundle offer with fair usage of 2GB.

Aamer Manzoor, Head of Data Mobilink commenting on the launch of the Phone Trade Program said, “Mobilink has invested more than USD 4.3 billion in its operations and network modernization in Pakistan. We are the country’s largest 3G-ready network and the Phone Trade Program is in line with our strategy to improve customers’ experience by providing the latest technology and best voice and data offers. I am confident that this program will equip our customers with the best devices, empower them to use future technology and encourage them to make the most out of Mobilink’s best data offers on the go.’’

The exchange program is currently being offered at Mobilink’s Islamabad Business Center, Blue Area as a pilot project and will subsequently extended to major cities of Pakistan.

Phones of various brands including Samsung, HTC, iPhone and Huawei are available at the Business Center with Q-Mobile to be made available soon.

  • EffF

    only 2GB per month…. this means initially 3G services will be costly :-)

    • Adnan Afridi

      lol good question

      • Usman Ali

        i dont think because in exchange programs they wont do this, dont know its first time in pakistan maybe they locked the phones but usually they dont

    • Rizwan Yaqoob

      No, there isn’t any kind of agreement or contract.

    • Daniyal Ahmed

      no issue even if they locked it u can get it unlocked by paying only rs300

  • Yasir Mahmood

    Thats Really Customer Friendly Step Taken

  • Rizwan Yaqoob

    So, we can expect contract-based smartphones as well in near future.

    • I don’t think so.

      • Osama

        but i think

    • Usman Ali

      never happen this in pakistan.yeah the only thing is happening is giving phones to company’s employees because thats how they can trace them.
      i guess UK n USA will stop this for asians because you know what we do with contracts, send back to your country and claim the new one :P
      this starts in pakistan maybe in one day morethan 10,000 phones were claimed ;)

      • Rizwan Yaqoob

        There’d be some terms and conditions but why you guys are eager to degrade your own country?

        • Usman Ali

          no we dont, i mention about asians first, its truth brother we Pakistanis, Indians and other 3rd world countries we all do this, so accept the facts. Even their own citizens do that but we were talking about pakistan here right?
          yeah terms and conditions are every where but we still find solution to that

  • Sadam Waqas Khan

    Nice offer and good step for marketing, all this is happening because of PTA

    • rimsha khan

      Ya. sadam u r right. The authorities like PEMRA,OGRA, PTA etc have done good job from their establishment. Rm fr improvement is thr but we must appreciate the good steps taken by these bodies like the case of 3G from PTA

  • Have anybody bought handset using this offer?

  • Mustafa

    Old phones or 2G phones?
    and what will we get 3G phones or SmartPhones??

    • Rizwan Yaqoob

      Exchange your old phone (any) and get the new 3G smartphone by paying differential cost.

      • Mustafa

        not 3G feature phones? Like Nokia 208, 301 etc ??

        • Rizwan Yaqoob

          “Any”. Rest you only have to pay “differential” cost.

          • Mustafa

            I understand that we can give ANY old phone (2G,3G,4G) but in exchange can we get a 3G Feature Phone like NOKIA 208,301 etc OR we have to pick a SMARTPHONE (Android, iOS, WinPhone) thats my Q ?

            • Rizwan Yaqoob

              They have brands like Samsung, HTC, Apple (iPhone), Huawei and QMobile to be made available soon. Nokia isn’t mentioned anywhere.

  • shami

    they are deceiving customers to buy handsets from them and woh bhee 3G ones. When 4G comes out everyone will be rushing to sell their 3G ones for 4G. It is wise to buy 4G handsets only now rather than going for 3G. Shows how bad mobilink is in deceiving customers

    • Bilal Iqbal

      how Deceiving.. lot of people will go for 3G only because 4G LTE is simply costly every where.. people in rest of the world pay thousands for few GB’s of 4G LTE.. so if you can afford 4G sets and services then go ahead but lot of people will go for 3G only for many years…. :)

  • A

    I want to exchange my Nokia 3310 with a 3G/4G enabled handset :)

    • sulman

      Please Pay Differential cost for Rs. 25000/- or So for Maturity of your Deal Brother. (anyway Nokia 3310’s is antique now. so this is “ONLY” a plus point for you..

  • Mustafa

    Hope they also add SONY and NOKIA too..

  • Abid Ali

    Mobilink 3G network is best best & enjoy moments
