Warid Brings SMS Blocker Service

Before  this Warid launched call block service, Warid now brings the SMS blocking facility to block all those annoying and unwanted SMS.

Simply follow the instructions provided below and get control over your incoming SMS traffic:

Procedure:

  • In order to block SMS from a particular number just send “block”<space>0321xxxxxxx in a SMS to 430.
  • The request shall be logged at Warid’s end and will be verified within 24 hours in case of an On-net SMS blocking request or 48 hours for an Off-net SMS blocking request.
  • Once the request has been verified the obnoxious user shall be warned the first time.
  • In case of another complaint to the same number the outgoing SMS facility shall be barred.
  • You will be informed regarding the action taken against the complaint after your request has been processed from our end.

Charges:

Charges of Rs. 2+tax per SMS shall be applicable.

It is interesting to note here that Warid has introduced Call and Sms block as separate services with separate charges.

Telenor also offers Unlimited Free Calls to 3 FnF Numbers

After Mobilink’s Na-qabil-yaqeen offer, Telenor also offered its customers a similar facility to make unlimited calls to three friend and family numbers at a fixed daily rental of Rs.9.99 plus tax.

Telenor’s this offer comes with its TalkShawk 24 ghantay package, which is a pretty decent package for making calls to all networks at 80 paisas plus tax per 30 seconds. Little higher than counterparts, which are offering 68 paisas or even 65 paisas per 30 seconds for all networks.

Telenor’s this move, of following Mobilink, may push other operators to allow un-metered calls on selected numbers at a fixed daily rental.

However, cellular companies will have to keep an eye on their network’s strength before offering this kind of incentives.

So if you want to make free calls to 3 FnF numbers, switch to Talkshawk 24 ghantay package, following is the method:

How to Migrate to TalkShawk 24 Ghantay Package:

Write “migrate” and send SMS to 345

Customer will reiceve a menu, reply this message with your desired package and you are done.

How to Avail 24 Hours Free Call Offer:

Dial *345*300# for daily activation.

Daily Charges:

Rs.9.99 +tax

How to Add FNF?

To administer FnF through SMS, use the following:

 

  • To add an FnF send “Add <slot no> <number>” to 345
  • To delete FnF send “Del <slot no>” to 345
  • To edit FnF send “Edit <slot no> <number>” to 345
  • To view FnF send “FnF” to 345
  • or  Dial 555 to add FnF

MMS Settings For Android Handsets Telenor/ Zong/ Mobilink/ Warid

Just like we write in our previous post for GPRS settings for Android handsets, here’s a complete set of MMS settings for Telenor, Zong, Mobilink and Warid, we couldn’t get hold of Ufone’s MMS settings for now.

Sorry we took a little while to get this one up, we had to test out the settings and confirm they were working before we could share them with you.

Just like the GPRS settings, MMS settings were possible all because of Haris Nadeem from AndroidPakistan.com, he put in quite a lot of time to make these settings work.

And before you bombard us with questions relating to the settings not working on your Android handset, we tested out MMS on a Nexus One running on Android 2.2 Froyo, Samsung Galaxy S running on Android 2.1 Éclair, HTC Hero running on Android 2.1 Éclair and a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 running on Android 1.6 Donut.

We’re assuming that these settings would work on Android 1.5 Cupcake as well, but might not work on every Android handset!

Telenor

  • Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks >Access Point Names.
  • Press the ‘Menu’ key and select “New APN”.
  • Now use the following settings:

Name: MMS (anything you like)
APN: mms

Password: Telenor
MMSC: http://mmstelenor or http://mmstelenor (Try both)
MMS Proxy: 172.018.019.011
MMS Port: 8080
MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0 (Only if it asks you)
MCC: 410 (should be there by default)

You can leave all the other fields blank as they are and save these settings.

Zong

  • Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks >Access Point Names.

APN type: mms

You can leave all the other fields blank as they are and save these settings.

Ufone is missing from the list but we would love to see contributions from you guys as well with a complete set of working settings for MMS for Ufone.

Customer Support is of no help when it comes to Internet or MMS settings. That’s why we had to figure out these settings ourselves by looking at MMS and Internet settings from different smartphones and then applying them on Android.

Please if you do have MMS settings for Ufone, share them in the comments section below, it would be a big contribution for the Android smartphone owners’ community.

Once again, hats off to Haris Nadeem for this major contribution.

Telenor’s GPRS TVC Showed a guy hunting for a girl on Facebook Dleted

I think that Telenor has decided to pull back its recent most TV commercial of telenor GPRS.More, which came under fire from masses due to its over-expressive nature.

I don’t know any official words on this yet; however, Telenor’s official YouTube page has deleted the ad that showed a guy hunting for a girl on Facebook using Telenor’s GPRS.

Telenor is airing a backup TVC on TV channels, which shots a better use of Telenor’s GPRS.

As we said, we don’t have official words on this matter yet; still, pulling the plug of TVC in question is being termed as positive and sensible response from Telenor’s end.

At the same time, now it is evident that said TVC had thematic problems in it.

Below is new TVC of Intenret.More

Telenor TVC which is morally beyond our social values

Telenor, a company that is usually very responsible in advertisements has apparently crossed the line, by having a go on a TVC, which is morally beyond our social values.

To sell its newly launched internet bundles, Telenor decided to show a boy spotting a  girl at his college. He then searches her by name on Facebook using Telenor’s GPRS. He then sends her message to be connected, and then she turns out to be the daughter of principal of that college – in the end, boy and girl get connected, in ten rupees for a day.

Tagline of this ad can be: How to Get a Girl in Rs. 10 with Telenor Internet.More

Following is the AD:

A multinational company of Telenor’s magnitude must consider the operating circumstances before defining a policy. A love story presented like this in TVC is not going to get acceptance by masses, while we already are hearing bad words on it from industry:

Telenor Internet More1 A Line was Just Crossed: Telenor Internet.More [TVC]

Here are few points to be considered:

  • What has happened to ad agencies? where is creativity?
  • Sales’ desperation has gone this high that company can show/teach this nation anything?
  • Where is PTA/PEMRA?

Update: Telenor has Pulled Back above mentioned TVC from TV channels and their Youtube page. A Backup AD is being aired as of now.

GPRS Settings For Android Handsets Ufone/ Zong/ Telenor/ Warid/ Mobilink

Android handsets are starting to see the light of day in Pakistan but sadly the cellular networks over here or more precisely the customer care people aren’t aware of their GPRS/EDGE settings, while Androids don’t accept automated settings messages.

But thanks to Haris Nadeem from AndroidPakistan.com we now have GPRS/EDGE settings for every mobile network here in Pakistan, yes you heard that right, GPRS setting for Andriod phones for every mobile network!

The first time I took my Nexus One to head office of a cellular company in Islamabad for GPRS settings, the representative over there took my handset, looked at it for like 5 minutes and then blurted out “Is this an iPhone?”, from that moment I realized that Android users are on their own when it comes to internet/GPRS settings.

Follow these simple steps and you’ll have Internet/EDGE up and running on your Android handset in no time!

Ufone

EDGE/GPRS Settings

  • Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks >Access Point Names.

    MCC: 410 (should be there by default)

  • You can leave all the other fields blank as they are and save these settings.

And that’s about it, you now have internet/GPRS settings for your precious Android device.

Note: These settings were tested on Android 2.1 Éclair and 2.2 Froyo for now, but it’s highly likely that they will work on Android 1.5 and 1.6 as well.

Note: We will post complete set of MMS settings for Android handsets as well once we them in one place, so stay tuned !
