Ever since Ufone launched its Super Card, it has become the best hybrid package on the market. The package offers a simple method to get minutes, data and SMS without worrying about any extra charges or taxes. Everything is pre-included in the package.
Most of the network providers followed suit and released their own hybrid packages which offer easy and worry-free prepaid packages. While other countries can avail similar all-in-one hybrid packages via postpaid service, it is not available to Pakistani users. The users do not have cost-effective postpaid packages with cheap addons and these prepaid all-in-one packages seem to be a possible alternative.
We have made a list of all hybrid packages available on all networks, which work in a manner similar to what the Ufone Super Card Offers.
Mobilink chose not go for a separate card method (like Ufone), instead it launched hybrid bundles which offer the same features but can be easily applied via a short code. The packages come with the taxes already included in the final price.
The packages are recursive and will be automatically reactivated if the user has enough balance in his account.
Telenor launched a competitive Easy Card which offered on-net and off-net minutes, data and SMS. Users can make use of the offer by simply buying a Telenor Easy Card.
The company has some other all-in-one offerings as well which should be sufficient for the respective durations of the packages.
Telenor charges a call setup fee of Rs. 0.15 on every call. Easy Card subscribers will not be charged a call setup fee.
Ufone started it all with its Super Card, including everything in the packages with no other charges to worry about. Since then, the Super Card family has expanded and now comprises of 4 offers catering the needs of different users.

Zong has its own set of hybrid bundles which cater to all sorts of users’ needs. There are a couple of monthly packages and one weekly package. There are a few other similar packages but they do not offer off-net minutes, hence, those were not included in our comparison.
