Aek say barh kay aek incompetent hein Mobile service providers in Pakistan:
I ported in to zong. I called the helpline and asked if they provide the 436 zong "SMS" serivce. The guy promptly replied YES YES YES! I asked again that if it is the GEONEWSMOBILEALERTS "SMS" service and he was irritated and confirmed. Then he told me how to activate it(by sending NEWS to 633). I did and it was bloody mms service and they deducted 170 Rs from my account. Stupid Zong! I called and complained,and interestingly when I started complaining the guy started talking in English accent,probably hoping I would hangup not being able to understand,lol.
I have seen some tacticts from Wateen and warid,but this was new,lol. Although he assured me they would look into the matter and refused to register a complain. And could't explain how would they look at the matter without registering a complain.
I am porting out again in 60 days.
To Ufone or back to mobilink this time.
Oh God! I love this forum so much. I feel so better after sharing what just happened here!
