Thread: iPad 2 and Cell C - bundle check

  1. #1

    Default iPad 2 and Cell C - bundle check

    I have an iPad 2 and bought a Cell C 2GB per month prepaid deal for it. I cut the sim to micro size, and installed. All has been working perfectly, I get lovely fast 3G signals.

    I wanted to keep a check on my data use, so at the start of June I went into settings - usage, and would reset the data. That works, but it means having to remember to reset the data counter at the beginning of each month.

    I went into a Cell C store, and asked them how I could check on my balance, and they said it was not possible I would have to take the SIM out the iPad and put it into my iPhone 4 (micro size) and then enter *101#

    Not satisfied with this response, I played around in my settings on my iPad 2 - there is a way on the iPad 2

    Go to:
    Settings
    Cellular data
    SIM applications
    Products and services
    Balance enquiry
    Accept

    I see I have 2046.53 for July available. While in there, there are other handy Cell C options, where you can check RICA status etc

    Hope this helps someone else

    There is an App for $1.99 called Data Useage Pro which gives you comprehensive stats on useage via 3G and Wi-Fi. You can also set it to warn when you are approaching a set limit.

    Register at self service login, you will be able to
    check your remaining and used data. The only crappy thing is that you need to put your sim card into a cell or 3g modem to receive your confirmation SMS in order to finish your registration.

    I recently purchased my iPad 3 and signed up for the R99pm 2 Gig special which Cell C is running, I am also unable to check my data bundle balance.. Under SIM Applications, all I see is Products and Services and Applications. None of which can give me my balance. Is it not possible for Cell C to send me the sms pin to my email address so that I can complete the registration on the web and check my balance that way?

    Very happy with Cell C so far!

    CellC needs an on net kind of login thing to check the balance. Similar to how 8ta does it.

    Some family members bought iPads on special from CellC and they are too scared to use their data since they only have 500MB and they are afraid of going over. It's all rather silly really.

    For now I will recommend to people to not go the CellC route when it comes to tablets.
