The conference was also aimed at promoting sustainable environment. Ufone and Nokia customers can now help save the environment by being a part of the extremely important “Green Recycling” initiative. Nokia which announced its recycling program in Pakistan earlier last year is now poised for successful expansion of its environmental initiative.
Initially Nokia Recycling boxes were available at 10 Nokia Care outlets. However, with yet another exciting collaboration between Ufone and Nokia, Recycling boxes will now be placed at 24 Ufone Sales outlets across the country.
Furthermore, Ufone plans to bring extremely attractive value proposition on future Nokia smart phones for its High Value customers with most favorable usage plans, it is worthwhile to mention that last quarter 2010, Ufone and Nokia launched Nokia N8 and Nokia C3 devices with special data plans and the joint collaboration received tremendous response from the masses.
Apart from affordable internet rates, Ufone will also offer its subscribers the convenience of activating their “OVI store” at Ufone Customer Sales & Service Centers across the country.
