    • yeah you are right, but they knew about it one can check / verify the prices, online or from market, may be there is no diff or a little as we knew that online shops are offering 10-20% min. higher from market prices ( as per my personal experience )

  • I have a major problem with operators getting into handset business unless it’s supported by initiatives such as joint marketing (cost sharing), subsidy, retention (locked phones), etc.

    A phone service (landline or mobile) is no different than any other utility, be it electricity, water or gas. When you turn on a switch, you expect a service like running water or using electricity to turn on a light bulb. Similarly, when one dials out, one expects to hear a dial tone. One does not expect a utility company to be selling air conditioners, washing machines, etc. It’s up to the consumer to decide as to what they want. If handset offering was indeed through a strategic alliance, one would expect some kind of saving to be passed on to the consumer, which is not the case here. Any discount obtained from the handset manufacturer is most probably going towards recouping cost of capital —- there is no such thing as free money.

    So my question is: why even get into something that would tie up cash in the form of inventory and deal with headaches of warranty, product support and payment collection issues?

    Operator’ S&M organizations are totally confused about their role and the role of a “dial tone” as a service —- they are a utility company for crying out loud and need to think how utility companies add and service customers in a deregulated environment. In a deregulated environment, obtaining a “dial tone” is not as hard as getting an electricity or gas meter installed, and is no longer about washed-up actors singing, dancing, and pitching a “life style.” Consumers use phones much like any other appliance — based on as and when needed and will select a device based on their budget & liking and use it at their own discretion, on-net or off-net.

    Operators need to think out-of-the-box to grow their revenues along with their customer base.

        • Why don’t you raise your voice against your attrited system? When your whole country’s economy is running on interest.

      • Islam is a concern of Muslims only. Dont bother your tiny mind with it. Jihad should be against religious fanatics as well as libreal fascists like you. Thats when Pak will progress. We are sandwiched between two loathsome extremes.

        • Pakistan will only progress when you will get out of Mullah-ism and those brainwashing academies (Madrassas), where nothing but people are being brain washed by those who are accused in molesting children. It will progress when people of every religion can live peacefully without life threats. Its a shame but reality.

  • if i choose Xperia Z3 [new is always better], for 6 month plan i will be paying RS-84150 and for 12 month plan RS-88956. so according to few websites its at RS-63000 [no warranty– with warranty RS-73000 (prices may change, I’ve rounded them up for better understanding)] so 8GB of LTE data is for 800 that makes it RS-4800 for 6 months and RS-9600 for 12 months plan. Given that there are no “extra” charges this may be a nice deal for many who don’t have so much cash just sitting there.
    so there you have it folk’s, perfectly deal? well no there is an obvious down side to it but then you are getting free data. you may be charged for calls and sms.
    reason for doing all this is, well i wanted to know how much warid is making out of it so i thought why not put it up there for other’s to look at it.

  • baqe customers jinkay pass bank alfalah ka account na ho Ya jo prepaid use karty hain wo gayayyy tail laynay :P

  • this is real bullshit… always making fools loudly… like standard chartered billboard says serving people in Pakistan since 100 years near botbason…

  • Bull Shit ……. Just cheating the innocent people of Pakistan.
