    0.3* 60 = Rs. 18/minute for outgoing calls
    0.48*60 = Rs. 28.8/minute for receiving calls
    Wow! that’s still pretty steep.

    It is a good initiative by Ufone. But still it is good to use a local SIM since charges are almost same. Ufone could also offer free incoming calls from Pakistan or at least free incoming calls from Ufone since Mobily and Ufone both belong to Etisalat and they can easily afford this as Airtel and some other operators are facilitating their consumers ‘FEEL AT HOME’ with such roaming offers.

      Agreed

  • Muhammad Tufail

    This rate is already applicable for all Prepaid SIMs and I am using one Ufone SIM in KSA.
    This is not a new service at all.

  • Kamran Raza

    Quite reasonable offer…Considering the ease of connecting to your friends and family on urgent basis.

    Me All my family and friends have smartphones so last yesr on hajj what i did is bought mobily 5gb data pkg for Abt 75 SAR which is 2000 Rs. I used viber for calls and whatsapp all the time and used it too much. So at ufone rate in Rs 2000 i can talk only 70 minuts. And still can’t see my family and friends and csnt share my live moment with them.

      Dear Cgill sb. and all other, I request that whenever any one have opportunity to go to Harmaineen then he/she should spend his/her mostly time in prayers at the Harmaineen because you can get new sim/ roaming facilities day by day but the time you have at Harmaineen no one know when it will be available again or not. So instead wasting time in taking pix / calls we should spend our time in prayers there. May b one call he/she in a day require to inform back to home that he/she is fine there or otherwise.
