Ok... I know this has probably been raised 8 million times in the past, but, I thought I might as well try and give it a go:
I upgraded on the 29th December 2010 to an htc desire hd on an anytime 300 mtn contract. I have been with mtn since 2005 and spend on average R1000 a month. Last week, I dropped my htc on a tar road. It smashed. Mtn quoted r3000 to fix it. I said no.
My question is do you think I could make a case to mtn retentions to upgrade early? I've currently served 18 months of my current contract. 6 months left. Earliest I can upgrade is in December. But, is there anyway to pay in and fast forward my contract till December so I can upgrade? I've spent over 20000 on the current contract,so, I've definitely paid off the htc desire. Do you think anyone at mtn retentions could help me out? Does mtn have a similar option to vodacom where ou can upgrade every 13 months if you spend over a certain amount of money every month ?
I'm struggling a little and don't want to buy a whole new phone now.
Any advice will be awesome!!
If I can't get an early upgrade, would anyone know of a way to fix the desire hd cheaper? The touch screen still works perfectly. It's just that the top layer glass has cracked very badly. All touch points on the screen still work though and the display seems perfectly fine otherwise. Any ideas?
