For the first time in Pakistan Ufone Launches Collect Call
ISLAMABAD: January 19, 2009 – For the first time in Pakistan, Ufone, one of the leading telecom companies of Pakistan, launches another unique service called Collect Call – enabling users to make a call even when they are really low on credit.
With Collect Call, Ufone now offers its valued customers the convenience of calling even when their account balance is really low to make a call on the Ufone network. It is ideal for users who have run out of balance, for children calling their parents, and users to want the other party to pay the charges in a business call.
This useful and unique service by Ufone can easily be accessed by dialing 11 followed by the Ufone number i.e. 110333xxxxxxx. Following some simple steps collect call can be made, provided the called party accepts the call and has sufficient balance. In case the called party doesn’t not accept the call the calling party will be notified through an SMS.
On the launch of this nifty new service by Ufone, Mr. Ali Ikram, Head of VAS Ufone said, ‘Collect Call is another brilliant effort of the VAS team at Ufone. A team which is always working in the most assiduous manner to provide the best and most innovative services to its valued customers.’
Ufone is an Etisalat Group Company with its presence in all the major cities of Pakistan along with a comprehensive coverage across all major towns, villages and tehsil head quarters of the country. The company employs more than 2500 people and operates with a network of more than 365 franchises and 25 company-owned customer service centers along with a distribution network of 150,000 outlets nationwide.
