Since I had enough with Warid’s customer support I finally planned to port my number to some other network. After researching call rates and services (especially if the network has EDGE or not) by all other I finally shortlisted Ufone as my next network. Though I knew that I will still not get Mobilink like customer support but still Ufone suited my needs and pocket.
The whole procedure for porting my number was easy (the service center being very close to my place) and cost me Rs. 55/- (Rs. 50 for Ufone port in charges and Rs 5 for photocopies of my SIM card and CNIC). Due to holidays, it took around 8 days for my number to be transfered to the Ufone network and I threw away my 64k(useless) Warid SIM.
Since I switched to Ufone, I have not had any deal-breaker issues and if I do find any, will have to wait for 60 days before I can switch back or to some other network. The only issue is that I receive text messages multiple times from Warid subscribers but will see with time if this resolves itself.
