'Using cellphones since all they did was make calls... barely'

Warid has arrived!

Finally, as expected on the 12th of May Warid telecom had its Launching ceremony In islamabad but sadly SIMS are still not available for public. Unlike Telenor, Warid decided to give a Supplement in the Leading newspapers and not give full-page Ads. The advertisment supplement has highlighted some of the features that Warid will be offering. There is still no sign of tariff though. Warid will be offering a 64k SIM which is enough for storing 500 numbers and 50 SMS messages. Conference calling/call diverting/call waiting are standard features. Thankfully it has GPRS with MMS but lacks my expectations of giving EDGE or EGPRS (enhanced Data rates for global evoltion) Groups can be made as Warid Friends and this will offer prefrential rates. This feature in postpaid is known as 'Warid round table closed User group' Just like the Indian operator Airtel, Warid also lets the user set their tune for all callers trying to reach their subscriber. Make them listen to any song you want! And Finally 'Warid 2 Much' which is for postpaid subscribers will double the subscribers Minutes and Free SMS every six Months. SIM will be available to the public on the 22nd of May.
