Curious how high is the Ufone SIM card priced? No wonder—Ufone is a Pakistani telecommunications company that offers GSM SIM cards and has a history of selling them for over two decades. It was the third carrier to join the market in the country back in 2001 but remained one of the leaders. That means users who seek 3G and 4G LTE services inquire about the service frequently. The mobile network provider is equally known for prepaid and postpaid SIM plans and excels at family plans and those with lots of calling and internet data. With the basics out of the way, let’s answer, “How high is the Ufone SIM price?”
What is the price of a new regular Ufone SIM card?
We won’t keep you waiting and state right off the bat that the price of a new SIM card from Ufone is Rs. 50 or 50 Pakistani Rupee. Any prepaid or postpaid (called “postpay” on this particular carrier) is a bonus, usually required as a way to activate the SIM card from Ufone. Depending on the plan, the price ranges from Rs. 200 to Rs. 700. It’s also worth noting that depending on the plan if you want the SIM order to be delivered, the fee can:
- Be waived (removed, making delivery free), frequently for first-time users, and expensive plans or special numbers. You may also avoid delivery fees by picking the SIM card up from one of Ufone’s physical stores.
- Cost you Rs. 135 for delivery charges on low-priced payment plans that represent a financial loss for the carrier, prompting them to recoup money this way.
How are special phone numbers from Ufone priced?
Ufone stands out for offering its users custom SIM card phone numbers users can check at any moment. Unsurprisingly, the carrier charges extra for this service. That is because it’s seen as an exclusive offer, and has several benefits for users who need to make their mobile number memorable. It comes as no surprise that the price depends on the degree of customization. Most users require between 4 and 7 custom digits. After entering them, the carrier will find unoccupied numbers that contain those numbers in the desired order. Luckily, the preicse is identical regardless of if you want 4 numbers or up to 7. The doorstep delivery costs Rs 385. In contrast, picking it up in person at a store or a franchise requires a payment of Rs 250.
Do note that you still have to pay Rs 50 for the SIM itself plus any applicable charges such as taxes. Also, you must pick the number up within 5 days. Otherwise, the number will be back in circulation. It’s also worth mentioning that if you visit the “Special Numbers” page and apply advanced options, the price per SIM can move to Rs 300. More specifically, those options are filters for configuring whether the number is starting, ending, or has 4-7 numbers anywhere. However, that may also mean the number is available at a store. Thus, it’s already counting the Rs 50 + Rs 250 charge.
Cost of Premium Numbers service from Ufone
You may be wondering about the “Premium Numbers” offer from Ufone and the price of that SIM card. Users who desire premium numbers have to pay a tad more. To clarify, these are distinguished combinations they cannot customize but are undoubtedly easy to memorize or distinct in other ways. The price can theoretically go up to Rs 10000 on their scale. Luckily, most premium Ufone numbers cost Rs 499. If the carrier notices demand and competition, the price may go up. Users also tend to reserve desirable phone numbers and resell them on third-party websites for a profit.
