PTCL has relaunched its Smart Link app, that allow its landline users to make and receive landline calls while on the go, i.e. from Mobile Phones with 3G or while on Wifi.
Essentially, with Smart Link App, your landline number will go mobile as it allows you to make and receive calls (while using your landline number) from virtually anywhere in the world.
Available for both Android and iOS, PTCL’s Smart Link app is now relaunched with new useful features, better user experience and enhanced call quality that works like a charm on 3G networks.
In addition to voice calls, you can make video calls, chat with friends, make flight inquires and more while remaining with in the app.
Who Can Use PTCL Smart Link App
Any PTCL landline user can simply go ahead and download PTCL’s Smart Link app from Android Play Store or Apple’s Play store and sign-up with the app.
Once downloaded, you can sign-up while using your landline number and filling in some other info including CNIC, owner of landline number and that’s it.
Once signed-up, you can simply login to the app and start making calls even when you are not home.
Voice calls work smoothly both on WiFi and 3G networks. We tested the app to make few calls, even on 3G network, and quality was super. Calls were connecting immediately, as they do on landline number, without any delay or breakups.
App is overall a smooth affair, with no hiccups at any level.
There are plenty of option available for customizing your app and usage. For instance you can restrict incoming calls, and use app for outgoing calls only. Similarly you can restrict usage while on 3G and allow app to receive / make calls only when on WiFi.
