The occasion of Hajj is nearly upon us with only a month or so left before pilgrims from all over the world congregate in Makkah to perform this most blessed Ibadat. The first problem pilgrims face when they reach Saudi Arabia is the issue of communicating with their families back home. Most people have to buy ne local SIMs to do so. Now Ufone has introduced their new Hajj Roaming charges for pilgrims to end their worries.
Ufone prepaid customers can now use their Ufone SIMs to perform calls and SMS to Pakistan at very low rates. Outgoing calls to and from Saudi Arabia can be performed at just Rs 0.30 per second and incoming calls are charged at Rs 0.48 per second. Furthermore incoming SMS are completely free and customers can take scratch cards with them or their relatives can perform Uload from Pakistan to recharge their accounts.
These charges are only applicable for outgoing calls and SMS to and from Saudi Arabia and for other countries the standard roaming charges will apply. There is also no need to do anything to activate the offer as it will be automatically activated on all Ufone prepaid numbers and there are no activation charges either.
The customers however have to be in areas covered by the local Mobily or Zain networks as these charges will only be applicable when Mobily or Zain networks are being used. This offer is only valid for Ufone prepaid customers.
