Warid Start again to Send Free SMS Delivery Reports

Warid customers reported last Wednesday that they have been receiving delivery reports for SMS messages, a feature that was previously switched-off. However, company didn’t confirm us then about the service or any of its associated charges.

But today, we have got this confirmation that Warid is restarting SMS delivery reports for it’s customers and that too for free (at least for now).

It won’t be out of place to mention that SMS delivery reports offer users an instant notification of the SMS message being delivered to the recipient, adding reliability and dependability in communication.

SMS delivery reports were once free for all operators. However, all of them stopped offering the service back in 2009 in order to balance the load on network.

Currently almost all operators offer SMS delivery reports to their customers as a paid service.

How to subscribe to SMS Delivery Reports?

 

The SMS Delivery Report Service is available to all subscribers by default. However, the subscriber needs to ensure that they have this feature enabled in their mobile handset.

 

 

Price:

The service is currently being promoted free-of-cost, but we know for a fact that service will be charged in future.
