    @Aharon....I think at this point I must just use the 100mb data and dump this stupid sim card, total waste of time and it would appears that the 8.ta Rep is no longer here.

    if you guys can go to the shop in the mall i recommend you do that. the reps are really helpfull. wanted to purchase the 2+1 but didnt know my number. rep looked me up and made the switch while i was there and printed out the instructions for me as well. i reckon thats the way to go with this. although i made the non roaming switch using that email...

    @Kaleb....yes they can. Not sure where you are but the guy at Zevenwaght Mall sorted me out.

    I spoke to a guy in Canal Walk @ the 8ta store and he said it can't be done.

    My girlfriends sim started using the 8ta network randomly about 3 weeks ago, and on Saturday mine suddenly started using the 8ta network as well (full signal, no "SOS"), went to gym this morning and it lost signal so it popped over to MTN roaming, then when I got home it went back to 8ta.

    I emailed social@8ta.com a few times about swapping me over but nothing came back.. I would say perhaps they listened but I didn't ask for my girlfriends number to be swapped over.. just the luck of the draw i guess?

    Anyone else's sim start using the 8ta network recently?

    Your gfr must be on the contract. Only contract SIM can roam to MTN and use 8ta network simultaneously.
    This thread is about making prepaid SIM non-roaming, as by default it roams to MTN and also is excluded from accessing 8ta network. It needs to be made to be able to purchase GoBig promo.

    Nope, both my SIM and my gf's sim are prepaid 99c sims from checkers.. and both are now able to go from 8ta to MTN roaming without a problem.
