The victims of Mobilink

I am glad I switched from Mobilink long time ago, but a lot of my friends and family members are still using Mobilink and they suffer every single day because of it. Sometimes text messages don’t get delivered or received, sometimes calls are just dropped all of a sudden, and sometimes nothing works at all. It happened last night and it turned out to be frustrating experiece for me because I was facing an almost emergency situation and I was unable to contact anyone who had Mobilink. Later on things turned out to be fine but at that moment I couldn’t help cursing at Mobilink service. They have created this so-called biggest network but they are unable to manage it. Here is the news item on it.

    True! Last night, I had to call a friend at Port Qasim in a business emergency but couldn’t as the f**kin may-be-link system was down. Its a shame they have created a huge network but it literally sucks big time.

    If someone from Mobilink is reading this thread, please go F**K yourself.

    I’ve never been a mobilink user but that still doesnt stop them from giving me trouble. Since most of my friends/family use mobilink it’s hell getting in touch with them. And god help us should an emergency arise.

    My cell had no signals most of the day yesterday. I hate mobilink service, but I have to use it because it is an official number. I can’t reply on SMS to send an urgent message. It is never sure how long it will take for the reciever to get it. Sometimes it has taken a day.

    Pathetic service.

    Well I haven’t ever used may-be-link :) ever… but yes i know how hectic it is, they have created THE largest network. But I should tell you that cursing mobilink won’t help.

    Try finding the ‘link provider’, these cellular operators get the links from any DNO arrount the country there are only a few… If the link goes down.. the Celluar operator is relying on that Data Network Operator.

    Lets pray that one day we can see at least one proper system in Pakistan :(

    yes, yesterday the network of mobilink was horrible! a relative of mine got so tensed just because she couldnt reach my mother, as her cell was coming as unreachable…. she almost fainted (a blood pressure patient)!

    I switched to warid as soon as they started… and havent looked back once! I’m now trying to get as my members of my family OFF mobilink (doesnt matter which other network, they’re all better).

    I for one is stuck with Mobilink – first reason had the same number for 8 years , secondly their GPRS is dirt cheap for my usage on the road plus they are bringing EDGE a high speed data transfer system now only if Warid / Wateen starts their Wimax in Karachi i’ll be glad to switch P.S i carry the same number as my mobilink on warid for emergency

    May be the phone is off or maybe its May-be-link

    Interesting part is, if the fibre optic link was damaged, what killed the signals? The fibre optic link connects areas. Calls within the same region should connect and other areas should remain functional.
    Seems like someone pulled the plug on maybelink!

    Mobilink will only act to fix these problems if it haemorrhages customers. That will only happen once number portability is allowed, but for obvious reasons Mobilink has been fighting the move tooth and nail.
