There are six telecom companies operating in Pakistan. However, each company network offers its SIM with a different SIM code. Hence, the telecom users are sometimes confused about Which network code is this? That’s the reason, I am writing this post for you.
We will list down all the SIM codes so that you can easily identify your SIM network. Each telecom company in Pakistan allocated a fixed number of serial codes from the PTA. This allotment depends upon the number of users each network owns.
The goal of assigning different codes to each network to full fill the user’s need. This happened when a network user base increased from the set numbers and the company can’t assign more mobile number to users.
So the PTA decide to allow the companies to use another set of codes. For example, A Mobilinking all the mobile numbers start from 0300 but after the company is able to full fill the number list it will be given any set 0301 so they can re-assign the numbers.
Identify Network Codes
The serial number or network codes start from 00 to 55 and each mobile company assigns the code by PTA. These codes are used to identify the network. For example, 0333 network code for Ufone and similar 0345 is set for Telenor, etc.
Each mobile number consists of seven digits with a separate serial number network code. A user must need to dial the number along with the code to connect with the user and can communicate.
SIM Codes List
Before listing down all the SIM codes, it is remembered that these codes assign by telecom authorities. Hence there is no control of the network regarding these codes. Each telecom company can have a different code and the same number can be assigned to a different code.
Jazz SIM Codes
Pakistan 1st network Jazz offers a variety of cheap packages with a wide range of coverage. The company owns maximum subscribers and instant speed. That’s the reason the authorize put this network on the top and serial numbers start from the beginning with Mobilink.
Zong SIM Codes
According to PTA, the second-best network in Pakistan is Zong 4G. Due to the fastest internet speed, Zong is most recommended by Pakistan users. Hence, the PTA put this network in second place and the serial number/SIM code of Zong start from figure 1
Zong SIM codes start with “1”
Warid Code List
The Warid places the third position but now it’s merged with Jazz so both are on one network. Although the serial numbers are still unique for each network. However, if you buy a new SIM of Warid you will get the Jazz SIM with jazz serial number. Similar to this the packages are also the same and you can use both network packages on the same network.
Warid SIM Codes start with “2”
Ufone Serial Number
Now the Ufone is able to achieve the milestone of the 4G LTE network but still needs a lot more improvements so it is placed in the fourth position. Although Ufone works with PTCL and both are the same company but both services are different. Some of the Ufone packages are free on PTCL and vice versa. This network planning to bring you a 5G network in Pakistan but it will still take a lot of time because we have seen Ufone move to 4G quite lately.
Ufone SIM code start with “3”
Telenor Serial Codes
We can say the Telenor is the best connection for those who live in romote area because its service works well in remote areas. As for the internet, it has 4G network but not good as compare to other companies.
Telenor SIM code start with “4”
This SCOM network is not much famous because it only exists in Azad Jammu & Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan.
SCOM SIM code start with “5”
