  • Bilal Aahil

    that interesting development.. looks like Mobilink, Telenor and Zong are having tough fight

  • KHALID MAQSOOD

    ufone has the best advertisements, but lacks in quality network

  • naeemafzal

    I am another unhappy ufone customer these days and seriously thinking to switch from ufone…so add one more in negative subscription of ufone.

    • Usman Ali

      i am also a ufone customer and dont think i will ever leave them..acually dont like the service but i have to travel abroad frequently and ufone gives free roaming and no need of activation or balance requirement..auto activated wherever you go

      • naeemafzal

        A lot good things earlier made my mind to choose ufone…this was one of them as well. free roaming and free incoming sms in roaming but what’s the purpose if during 95% of the usage period I wouldnt get any benefit.

        • Usman Ali

          yeah you are right but my time was 50/50 actually and i started with ufone at time when only mobilink was the other option and ufone was quite good at that time even 5 years back it was good but now i can’t change my number or cant even port to other and then back after 2 months for roaming
