I guess that is one way how to maximize profit.. screw the consumer and make tons.
Reminds me of the redonkulous prices of sms'es.. only something like R5k/MB :/
The question is, why does MTN allow this to happen!? It doesnt make sense to pay for a databundle, then they send you and sms saying you need to activate the darn thing. You bought it cos you want to use it! At vodacom is awake on this! Also drives me nuts how data expires!
First Rule of business, Maximize Profit
mmm!mtn network is damn fast indeed,but guys why do you ignore part of the sms that clearly state that the bundle should be activated?can we hold mtn responsible for this mess if the user neglected to read a short sms in full?

If it makes u feel any better, when the huawei wireless modems were first introduced, I somehow ended up signing a 2 year contract with Autopage/Mtn was my network choice. I chose the 500mb Data contract, which at the time was R249 per month with 500mb data usage per month at 3.6mbps speeds. Over the span of my 2 year contract, I forked out over R14K in bills, with my highest being close to R5K on the first month. I sure did learn my lesson......the hard way. Honestly, at the time, I didn't know watching youtube videos was considered as cap usage Anyway, I had to take a screenshot of "my account" on the Autopage site........just as a reminder
^How would it happen on prepaid ?
If you can read this... you can read.
Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It is already tomorrow in Australia.
I doubt if they'll bother with your complaint. I had a similar case with Vodacom a while ago and ended up paying. They simply shook the whole thing of as me being an idiot and I didn't know what I was doing. The manager at the shop said something like "You probably didn't read the message properly so you're at fault"
they cannot bill you, if you transfer data @unthrottled speeds on the prepaid "unlimited offer"
