Last week, Mobilink commercially launched its 3G service and from today onwards, customers will be charged for using 3G service across the country.

With this, the company has declared various 3G bundles and options for its customers to enjoy. 

How to activate Mobilink 3G service?

Mobilink customers will have to activate their 3G service unlike other operators. Customer will have to dial *443# and select the “3G activation” option in order to commence the service on their cells. Alternatively, users can also send SUB to 7003 for 3G activation and this activation will be free according to Mobilink.

3G Packages of Mobilink:

Mobilink will be offering 3G bundles of 3 days, weekly and monthly for its customers. 4GB is the maximum limit for the monthly bundle and it is worth of Rs. 600 per month.

These 3G packages are not auto renewable i.e. customers will have to renew their data bundles every time they wish to continue using the 3G bundles. This effectively means more hassle for customers who are planning to use a daily 3G package.
