Pring is a Social Network that lets you share what you're up to with your friends via your cell phone or online in 420 characters or less.
Signing up is easy, just send an SMS to 9900 and you're in! For web users, you can sign up online on this site.
For SMS users, send UNSUB to 9900, and a verification code will be sent to you. After verification your account will be deleted. If you're using the web, you can go to your account settings, at the bottom of the page, click on Delete Account. WARNING: All your data will be deleted, and this is not reversible.
This means your Prings, conversations, profile, etc.
All mobile networks in Pakistan are supported: Warid, Mobilink, Ufone, Telenor & Zong.
Pring will always be free online. Sending a message costs Rs. 0.5+Tax (around ~61 paisas total) for Ufone, Telenor, Zong and Mobilink or Rs 0.05+Tax (around ~6 paisas) for Warid. Receiving SMS is free.
That's one of the best things about Pring! You can access Pring entirely via SMS. There is no need for an internet connection. Try it and send HELLO to 9900.
You need to have a mobile phone active in Pakistan to be able to use Pring. Once your connection is verified, you can use it from anywhere in the world.
Pring is originally designed for 140 characters. However, we've added the ability to have longer updates. Just like you can press a link at the end of an update to view larger text, large updates have a snippet of the text and the user has to text M to recieve the full message. M stands for 'more'.
There is no limit on the number of people that you can follow.

A verified account is confirmed to be authentic and is generally granted to a business or a public figure. This account is represented with a medal on the website and an asterisk on mobile messages. If you own a business or are a person of note, please send your contact number to email@example.com
You can send a maximum of 1,000 invites on cell phones. If you wish to go beyond that limit, please contact us for further details.
To make Pring speedy and accessible for everyone, large accounts with more than 100+ followers are limited to performing one update per hour to reduce SMS traffic generated as well as to decrease chances of spam.
Pring is made free of cost with the help of thousands of advertisers. To make the experience useful for everyone, the system automatically selects the right ad for the user, based upon a number of parameters.
You can check the number of your followers, your Prings and the number of people you are following by sending STAT or STATS to 9900. You can view the names of your followers or people you follow by texting LIST to 9900.
When you want to update your status from your cell phone, write P<space>message and send it to 9900.
This is to protect you from accidentally sending an update, when you originally wanted to perform a command or an action.
