    Default CellC R50 special

    Hey

    I was under the impression the R50 special (50 SMS, 50 mins airtime and 500Mb data) would last until you've used it up.

    So I bought the bundle, and loaded it up on my phone. The confirmation SMS duly arrived, telling me that I've got 50 CellC to CellC minutes, 50 SMS'es and 500Mb data - to use before Sunday midnight.

    Is there any fine print on said advert which says how long the data bundle/SMS'es/airtime will last?



    TIA

    Like it says, it lasts until midnight, Sunday, even if you load it at 23:50, Sunday evening, you got 10 minutes to use it ...

    I thought it was common knowledge that is lasts until Sunday?

    Maar waar sien mens dit? Ek meen jy ry op die hoofweg verby die groot advertensie bord wat se R50 = 50 minute + 50 SMS + 500Mb

    Jy het nie tyd om die fynskrif te lees nie, tensy jy 'n ongeluk wil veroorsaak...

    Okay. Ek het dit gesien op die Televisie. Hulle praat in die advertensie en noem dat dit van Maandag tot Sondag is.

    Ek dink dit was op die eerste lot smse ook, toe ek aan die begin dit begin gebruik het.

    Die lekker ding is oom het nou klaar die R50 vir die week opgesit. So as oom se Data klaar is en oom laai nog R10 dan kry oom 100Mb by en 10 smse. Dit kan bymekaar optel tot nog 'n 500Mb. Jy kan net 1Gb per week so laai.

    So as oom R15 na die R50 opsit kry oom 150Mb, R20, 200Mb ens. tot met 1Gb totaal vir die week.

    I don't get these kind of 'specials'. There is no incentive for me to load airtime on any other day than a Monday. Stupid idiote eksę.

    Ok... sę maar ek gebruik nou 120Mb, en het 380Mb oor...

    So as ek nou Sondag so R10 se data opsit net voor 23:59:59 kan ek die afsnydatum uitstel na volgende Sondag toe sonder om enige data bundles te verloor?

    I get it. My 2Gb was finished over the weekend and by loading R50 I have at least 500Mb to use this week, use my airtime of R50 next week and so on. It saves a lot of money in comparison to buying a data bundle.

    Nee oom. Die Data is net geldig van Maandag tot Sondag. As oom die 380Mb nie gebruik nie, of R10 (100Mb) bysit gaan oom dit heeltemal verloor.

    Dit moet gebruik word deur die week tot Sondag middernag. Die Rand waarde van die Airtime bly nog op die SimCard. So as oom R50 gelaai het en die data is verstryk, dan het oom nog R50 op die sim om te gebruik as data.
