With the advent of 3G & 4G LTE, smartphone scenario is changing in Pakistan. Prior to launch of these services, there were only a few handsets available in Pakistan which support 3G or 4G LTE. And who is to blame, because there was no point of having one anyway. Over the period of last few months, we have seen several companies introducing new smartphones which are compatible with these new technologies and then there are companies which have jumped into this bandwagon with Apple being one.
Apple is currently offering its latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus in collaboration with cellular service providers. Unlike other countries, the phone are not network locked. But there are benefits of buying one from you current service provider because some of them are offering lucrative deal in terms of free data and voice minutes.
However, there is something important you need to know before you jump into buying one from the service providers. You will not be able to use Facetime on these devices. According to service provider websites it is because it is banned by PTA. Well that could be one reason. The other reason could be that these phones are coming in from Middle East where you can’t use Facetime, Skype or Viber on your iPhone. So just be-careful before you buy an iPhone from a service provider.
