Warid now introduces IM Over SMS service to its subscribers which allows them to send Instant Messages over different Instant Messengers without having GPRS enabled on their handsets for ‘just’ Rs. 1+ tax/ SMS. To me its quite expensive service and who would want to spend Rs. 1.20 per SMS when they can contact them via call or regular SMS for lower price. Seriously, I don’t understand the purpose of this service. To people who want to use this service, details are given below.
