HTC Helpline

Personal
I needed to get my HTC Desire HD's volume key repaired even though it was Nnot in warrenty and Not purchased from Brightex but to my surprise the helpline was very proactive and welcome-ing in offering their services. Of course the services were paid for but at least I had the peace of mind for getting them fixed from the pros. Thats another reason to buy HTC hardware HTC Helpline in Lahore is being offered by Brightex, the official distributor of HTC at 111-111-HTC (111-111-482)

Dust Storm in Lahore

Personal
Today, its really hard to breath in Lahore because I see the second dust storm in my life span in Lahore. Its not as bad as in Karachi but still, its hard to breath. Last year on 25th May, 2011, there was also a Sand storm (and since I saw/felt it for the first time) it was a difficult experience [caption id="attachment_1007" align="aligncenter" width="480" caption="Dust storm in Lahore"][/caption]

Cash Deposit Machine (CDM) or Can’t Deposit Machine? Weird experience

Pakistan, Thoughts
My salary account is HBL (I hate this bank) and I use Dubai Islamic Bank's services which I am very satisfied with. So last night after work, I thought to move balance from HBL to DIB, tried the inter-bank transfer (which should be great if it is working) but invain. So I went straight to DIB Main Bulevard, Guberg branch. I took out the cash from one ATM and tried to deposit it via DIB's CDM (Cash Deposit Machine) into my DIB account. Either the machine was acting weird or the time-waste was inevitable. The machine deposited half my cash and reject the other half. I took a look at the other half that was rejected, the bills were clean and new. I could not find anything with the naked…

Warid Postpaid Issues – had to MNP my cell number

Pakistan, Personal, Reviews
I moved from Warid to Ufone in April, I forgot to mention that. Thanks to MNP the move was smooth and easy. Now let me tell you why I moved. First of all, there are billing issues in Postpaid. They have two SMS packages Zoom Limited SMS Package offering 750 messages per month and Zoom Unlimited SMS Package offering 7,500 messages per month When you activate any of these packages (for the first time) the package is charged double. So e.g. you activate Zoom Unlimited and it costs approx Rs. 300 per month so it will be charged twice, once as ACTIVATION CHARGES and second as monthly charges (WTF!!) (more…)

Domino’s Pizza in Lahore – A bad experience

Personal, Thoughts
I thought it was a good news for pizza lovers like me but it wasn't. Me and my friend visited the Domino outlet in Link Road branch on 06th June 2009. Let me give you an account of what I saw and went through there. Four tables and chairs similar to those in Kindergarden. Plus there was no one to show you the way AND all tables were pre-occupied. So as soon as one table got free, I jumped in while my friend was still at the counter ordering the pizza. We always ask for less vegetables and extra chicken topings. We did the same here too. After 15 min someone called my friend's name if his Parents were here to pick him up from school (lol, yeah!) and he…

Pakistan, Thoughts
I was surprized to know that AboutUs has a Lahore Office. Their website quotes While AboutUs is based in Portland, Oregon slightly more than half our staff is in our Lahore, Pakistan office. I do not know where their office is in Lahore, Pakistan but if any of you know, I would definitely want to know their whereabouts.
