These rates are then converted to Pak Rupees at the prevailing exchange rates for that month and the Tariff Guide is updated accordingly.

6.      How to make calls in the visited country? Making a call while roaming is no different than making a call in Pakistan. Only the rules reverse, as the roaming network of the visiting country becomes your home network for the time you are there.

7.      How to make international calls while on roaming?
For international calls, dial the International Access Code, the country code, city code (minus the leading zero) before calling a landline of another country (including Pakistan). Therefore, in order to dial a landline number in Lahore, you will dial +9242 <number>

8.      How will others access my Warid number?
Your family, friends and colleagues can call your Warid number in the usual way and they will only be charged for a routine call to a Warid number. Overseas callers will need to dial the full international access code, Pakistan's code followed by your Warid number excluding the leading zero, even if they are visiting that particular country. e.g. +92321 <number>
