  • Nexus

    4g services are not available for LG Nexus 5 Users because Warid doesnt support 1900Mhz band..

    • Naveed

      There are two models !! D820 is not supported ! but D821 is supported :)

      • Guest

        Yes, it’s one of the finest LTE handset options (considering price and specs). Several of my friends are using Nexus-5 for Warid LTE.

        • Naveed

          No doubt but I would prefer LG G2 D802 (international Variant) which is better than Nexus 5 :)

    • Saad R.

      Using it on Nexus 5 D821 bro. North American verison (D820) wont support 4G frequency in Pakistan.

  • Junior

    I already got 1 week before from business center. This is not a NEWS.
    The NEWS will, warid commercially lauched LTE services, there pathetic website is upgraded to (responsive website), more cities are added in coverage area. This will be the NEWS.

    • khan

        • Naveed

          activate the package and try to switch it on .. and tell Warid ppl to just activate your LTE as you know that your set is compatible..

    • Tnt4ever

  • Shoaib

    Excellent start up of Warid in data hungry market.

  • Mujtaba Shaukat

    Ive been using Warid 4G LTE since 13 November 2014, and consumed 108GB Data. Propakistani your info is wrong. Trails had started ages ago on 13 November for both prepaid and postpaid customer as i am a prepaid customer and i got my sim delivered on 13th November. Plus throughout the trial im getting 15MBps Download and upto 5Mbps Upload.

    • Mujtaba Shaukat

      108GB B| Picture attached below.

      • Tnt4ever

        aithay rakh …

          • Tnt4ever

            I was specific to ptcl evo. But forgot to mention. Dsl is better if 4m+

        • Mujtaba Shaukat

          Plus ptcl ki evos are L idk why dont they offer speed.

        • qaisar

      • Ahmed

        Amazing

      • Ahmed

        • Mujtaba Shaukat

          Speed it awesome. ILY Warid. i usually get 10MB speed and sometimes like at night i get 15MB still the speed is consistent and dosent fluctuate

      • adnan

    • aamir7

      Yes, 4G Sims were delivered to select customers before. But it’s only now what Sims are available on business centres for anyone and everyone.

  • Guest

    Overall, my experience with Warid LTE has been smooth. Speed and coverage are quite good. Last thing I would want is a package which offers around 10-15GB data/month at a fair price.

  • Athar

    I have iphone 5s.. Got the sim a week ago … But when i move from 4G to 2G area, the phone sometimes go to No Service.. Until restart

  • NaQi

    Is there any andriod app that shows network type i.e warid (4g) Telenor (3g). i m using SIII but it shows only netwok name.

  • Mohammad Ahsan

    kia koi ye bata sakta hai kab khatam ho rhye han ye trials ?

  • Mohammad Ahsan

    Warid kon sa band use kar raha hai 2100Mhz ya 2600Mhz

    • Naveed

      ZONG and Warid uses band 3 (1800MHZ)

    • aamir7

      1800

      • unknow

        will it support to samsung galaxy S3 (i9300)

        • HassaanM

          Sorry to say, it won’t. Yours is a 3G handset and so it doesn’t have any 4G capabilities.

      • IrfanAmir

        Which means I cannot use it with LG G2 T-Mobile unlocked phone? Can I?

      • fahad afzal

        will it support my sony xperia sp (c5303)

      • Nomi

        which band ptcl uses for its charji…and is it really LTE…?…is it possible to get charji SIM only to use in Iphone 6 or Dongle….

  • HassaanM

    Why no love for us ‘Pindi valas? Ye sila diya humare intezaar ka?

  • HIKMAT

    This is the maximum speed I got on Warid 4G LTE in Lahore.
    P.S. I am a postpaid customer.

    • Naveed

      Dude.. Come on .. Add me on Whatsapp .. Message me on Twitter @NaveedKhokhar20 :) :D I have alot of friends from the internet , they all are using LG G2 :)

  • Guest

    Warid improving its coverage day by day today i am getting full signals . Speeds needs improvement also now

  • Hashim

    Warid getting better n better

  • tayyab

    Near lhr airport.

    I love this speed,but i think itsvpretty useless given the fact that you have limited data bundles i have tried ufone 3g package of rs 5/day and found it to be totally useless as the download speed in utorrent is hardly 60-70kbs and speed test gives only 1mb result.

    I have tried telenor daily bundle and the speed is mind blowing 600-800kbs with speed test result of atleast5 mb result.I think telenor 3g is by far tge best in terms of volume and speed for day time usage.

    • tayyab

      Forgot to mention that this result is of zong lte

      • test

        Zong is not consistent this my experincce of its 3G just got 4G SIM of Zong will compare it with Warid but Zong 4G has very limited coverage area.

    • JUnaid

      bro telenor has blocked torrents :(

  • Shoaib

    Excellent move by Warid in competitive 3G/4G market.See how many data customers join Warid.

    • Naveed

      me :) Using ZONG And Warid now :)

  • Xahid

    I got it 2 weeks ago, without any charges (you mentioned 100Rs?) and one more thing, I notice in my phone Network Search it only shows “Warid” no 2G, 4G or LTE, but when I enable data network it shows 4G sign, with data speed 5Mbps not Impressive.

  • Mubashir

    Warid LTE not working on my iPhone 5. How to check if this is coverage issue or setting issue? Get an error that the cellular network is not supported by the carrier when i try to enable lte?

    • Naveed

      What is the model of your iPhone 5 ?

      • Mubashir

        Sorry? What do u mean by model? I understand that it’s iPhone 5!

      • Mubashir

        My Model is A1428. Does it support band of lte supported by warid.

        • Tnt4ever

          Bro iPhone hone 5 model 1428 donot support Band 3 (1800mhz) means you can only enjoy 3g on this set neither warid 4g nor Zong 4g will work on 1428

          iPhone 5 model 1429 & all later release 5c, 5s, 6, & 6+ supports band 3 (1800mhz)

          • Mubashir

            Thanks for your kind feedback. Does the iphones after iphone5 have different models too? Are there any firmware upgrade solutions available for my 1428 iphone5 that can make it work on warid lte? Now that Warid is also offering iphone6s can i expect any support for the older Iphones? I also have Nokia Lumia 820 that supposedly supports lte. However it currently shows highest speed of 3G. How can i make it work on Warid lte?

            • Tnt4ever

              no dear if the chip not have support for specif frequency you can do it by JB or else.

              i know all this because was also a 1428 model owner. i sold it & bought 1429

              same suggestion for you

              now either you sell 1428 & buy a1429 may cost you 4-6k difference.

              or if you have budget go for 5s or else.

              • Mubashir

                Thanks a lot! What is the solution for lumia 820? How unfortunate! V have such a limited choice of devices for using Warid LTE!

                • Tnt4ever

                  as per gamreana (dot) com lumia 820 has Band 3 supported but don’t know if you have purchased region specific lumia 820

        • Naveed

          I am afraid your phone is not supported.. A1429 is supported only

  • Ammar

    I got my 4G sim today from the Islamabad business centre. Works beautifully and it’s fully functional in Rawalpindi as well.

    • Naveed

      Add me on Whatsapp.. Message me on twitter @NaveedKhokhar20 :-) Where in Rawalpindi ?

    • HassaanM

      Where in Rawalpindi do you live? I understand that Warid’s 4G signals come as far as Commercial Market and die there. Also, I called 321 and they tell me that Warid isn’t offering 4G service in Pindi yet but it will ‘soon’ be available.

      • Naveed

        I was getting 4G signals in Scheme 3, Saddar and Dhok Ratha ! .. :) Speeds vary alot in those areas… I guess that would get better by time :)

        • HassaanM

          A friend in Airport Colony says that he gets around 5-7 Mbps on a Nexus 5. I understand that these are all residual signals from Islamabad and that Pindi hasn’t got any 4G coverage yet. It is surprising because all other networks started trials simultaneously in the two cities and I was expecting the same from Warid but not to be.
          Btw what speeds are you getting in these areas?

          • Naveed

            I was getting good speeds in Saddar and Scheme 3 :-) Dhok Ratha was having low signals..

            • HassaanM

              Well I was asking quantitatively…mentioning in Mbps would be great!

              • Naveed

                Oh Sorry.. Saddar and Scheme 3 was giving me around 18Mbps download and 10Mbps Upload but Dhok Ratha was giving me only 3-5Mbps download and 1-2Mbps upload

                • HassaanM

                  Thanks, they are way below average for LTE but comparing to what users are getting in Isl, they are pretty good.

                  • Naveed

                    It willl get better with time

      • Ammar

        satellite town. i get full speed here so im sure u can get something as far as saddar

  • vikki

    Salam. Can anyone tell me that the sim is available only on business centres or also available in some franchises as well??

    • Naveed

      Nope , not in franchises !

  • adnan

      Competition is stiff between all operators.See who wins the game.

        • guest

          Yar 150 mbps sun k hi mu main pani ata hai :D banda kyun na 4G k peeche pare

          • adnan

            To 150mbps ka banda kia kare itna kafi nahi?

            • Bilal Iqbal

              Telenor superb speed…

  • SachaAadmi

    Does Warid 4G supports Moto X (2013) – Sprint Version (XT-1056) ?

    • HassaanM

      Sprint uses Tri-band LTE of 1900/800/2600. So going by this your model won’t support Warid’s 1800 band. You should go for the 1052 version.

      • Muhammad ismail

        Dear sir i have samsung galaxy s3 my mobile 4.4kitkat software & shows the sign of lte or 3ģ kya is mai lte supported hogi plz tell me sir thanks & regards

        • HassaanM

          Depends upon your model, only Galaxy I9305 supports local LTE in the SIII range.

  • Warid Postpaid User

    I have to add one thing more…
    im warid postpaid user since 4 years but now i have to seriously shift to other network…
    When i heard warid has a limited license n wen i got 4g sim they said sir it vl work with only specific sets…
    Even my samsung note 3 LTE donot support warid 4g lte network…
    So its really poor network…
    All people were coming on customer care with 4g lte sets n all were getting this poor pathetic reply from representative that sir ur set does not support our 4g network…
    better to shift to sum 3g network sim or zong 4g..

    • test

      Dear,
      A handset not working on Warid 4g will also not work on zong 4g as both use 1800 mhz (band 3)

    • alionly

      Note 3 lte supports1800 mhz band.
      Which model number u have?

    • Naveed

      Just kindly make sure that your phone is N9005 and LTE supported.. Root it and then use it :-) it will be fine :)

  • Qaisar

    yar utorrent ya idm ke screenshot share kia kro speedtest se dil bhr gya ha plzzzzzzzzz

      Check this plz, I got upto 1.5Mb download speed on Warid 4G LTE on torrent

      • Naveed

        Which Rom are you using ?

  • Zarrar

    Same problem as everyone, my Galaxy S4 LTE is not supported. Note 4 and Galaxy Alpha are the only Samsung 4G compatible phones that Warid will support on their network. What a disappointment.

    • Abbas

      your s4 lte supports warid g i am using warid 4g on s4 lte 9505, u have to root it on 4.4.4 or u have to wait for the update

  • Rehmat Ali

    How I can check which Telecom Operator 3G or 4G services are available in my area? Not have all network SIM.

    • Abbas

      go to network operators in settings and search it manualy

      • Rehmat Ali

        When I search Ufone 3G appears but I am unable to connect and I am offered 2G services. Using Huawei Ascend P6

        • Naveed

          Subscribed to 3G package and then try

          • Rehmat Ali

            Brother already subscribed to Ufone 3G monthly package. The point I want to make clear is if the 3G network appears while manually scanning the networks on mobile, does that means that the 3G services of that networks are there in my area?

            • Naveed

              Yes ! Ofcourse

              • Rehmat Ali

                Then Why I am not to access it

                • Naveed

                  The signal strength would be low thats the reason maybe… You should contact ufone ! In my opinion , just change your network :P Ufone sucks !

    I went to service center in Peshawar but they refuse to give me 4G Sim.

  • Vikki

    Salam. today I got my Warid 4G LTE Sim from Business Centre. I am using Galaxy NoteII(N7100) and most importantly a rooted phone therefore 4G should work on the phone but what I found is that my phone is not identifying sim and constantly signaling me “NO SIM”. I just want to ask whether it is the problem due to phone?? According to my knowledge SIM atleast work whether i use 4G or not??? SIM is entirely not working!!! Any reasons??

    • Naveed

      First of all , N7100 is not 4G compatible phone , N7105 is supported !

      Yes the sim should work even if your phone is not supported ! did you get a replacement sim ?

      • Vikki

        thnx for letting me know. I will tomorrow go to their business centre again for replacement.
