Mobilink Starts LTE Trials, Warid Customers to Enjoy 3G Trials

In a new development today, Mobilink has started LTE trials for its customers while Warid customers are being offered 3G trials, we have checked.

Both companies are in process of integrating their networks, as a result Mobilink customers will get to experience 4G LTE services while Warid customers will ultimately be able to enjoy 3G services on their smartphone devices.

From sources we know that this early customer trial is being offered in select parts of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, that will further expand to other parts of the country during coming days.

Those Mobilink/Warid customers who are with-in the coverage area and are on compatible devices can simply connect their devices to corresponding 3G or LTE networks.

It maybe recalled that Mobilink is already issuing LTE compatible SIMs to its customers. Anyone with a Mobilink connection can go to company owned service centers to obtain a 4G LTE compatible SIM.

It must be noted here that 4G data for Mobilink customers and 3G data for Warid customers will be charged as per their current bundles or base rates, whatever is applicable. Customers have been informed about charging mechanisms through an SMS, we have checked.

After Mobilink, Warid merger, more than 51 million customers are now part of a single network (virtually) and they are moving towards a point where they will be able to enjoy the benefits of both the networks.

Not to be mentioned, both companies will fully merge into a single network under single brand in six months from now.

Update:

  • Warid Users, with compatible handsets can connect with 3G with their current SIMs
  • Warid 4G users — who have 4G compatible devices — can chose between 3G or 4G network
  • Mobilink customers will have to get 4G compatible SIMs (and handsets) to be able to use 4G services.
  • All data usage (either on 3G or 4G) will be consumed from your current data plan (whatever it is).
  • If not subscribed to any data plan, then you will be charged for data as per regular tariffs

          • Aon Bilal

            Bhai Mujhy Warid Sms Mosool Hua Tha K Ap 3G Use Kar Sakty Hain Apko Agr Sms Nahi Mila To Shaid App Istmal Na Kar Sakain

          • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

            Call to 321 and ask CSR to activate 3G against your number and tell him that you are in Islamabad even if you are not. He will activate 3G against your number. If He refused by saying its in testing phase try 2-3 more times with different CSR. If they all refuse ask them to transfer your call to their supervisor. And tell supervisor that your friend activated 3G yesterday by calling help line and you guys are refusing mine. He will activate 3G for sure against your number.

          • Umz

            Issue is not in your phone or settings. Your phone will automatically connect when the network will allow it.

      • Aon Bilal

All my Zong numbers are showing same error and I never used Zong loan facility.

      • Rao Zahid Nisar

        We don’t need 3G dear. We are happy with Warid 4G only. Network quality is degrading already. Seems they have shifted voice to Mobilink already. Terrible Mobilink.
        The only advantage will be with Mobilink users. They will finally use a quality network. :)

                • Ansari Daniyal

                  Warid customers need to call helpline 321 to get 3G activated on their sims

      • I’m more concerned about the apparent degradation of Warid’s network — have experienced delayed call connect, sms delivery reports (warid to warid) and overall slower data speed (4G)

    • Momal Shah

      kaisy Activate hogi 3G service?

      • Economic Corridor

        automatically. warid will send you an automatic message for 3g activation.

  • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

    Warid, Zong, Telenor and Mobilink went for 4G, meanwhile Ufone Customers be like

    • Arslan Ejaz

      Getting Warid 3G signals but can’t connect to 3G in Gujranwala.

      • Ansari Daniyal

        Call helpline & ask them to activate 3G service first

        • Arslan Ejaz

          Have you tried it???

          • Ansari Daniyal

            Yes i have called 321 and asked for 3G activation. They did it. While my friend was having their 2G sim when he called they ask him to first get 4G sim replacement for 3G also. That was kind of strange.

            • Arslan Ejaz

              I called them but they are saying that they cant activate it yet.

              • Ansari Daniyal

                Which city are you in? As they are asking ur city before they activate the service. I am in karachi. I tried today too on a friend’s number who already have 4G sim. Initially they refuse saying its soft launch & all but as I insisted than they activated.

                • Arslan Ejaz

    • Naveed

      Did you get 4G replacement?

  • Ammar

    What I still hate is that you can do GSM calls when using 3G at the same time on Warid, but it doesn’t automatically switch back to 3G if you’re doing GSM calls when using 4G. I wish there was seamless switching.

  • Mobilink Loyal Customer

    Using Mobilink 4G in Karachi, just clutch your new SIM Card which is 4G enable. Call 111 or 777 and ask them to activate 4G LTE on your number. Restart your phone and start using it. I am at abdullah Haroon road and getting speed of around 19-21 Mbps .. Enjoy
