My dad is considering getting an iphone (his latent tech geek erupted when he got an ipad, which is simple enough that even he can sort of get used to it) and even though he's pay as you go with vodacom now (using a really old POS non smartphone) I'm thinking contract with Cell C might be the way to go.
I'm also pay as you go with a Blackberry so I can't offer much advice. So I seek it from you knowledgeable guys and girls.
My dad doesn't use his phone a hell of a lot, so I'm looking at a modest/simple contract and iphone model. Cell C's new website to custom a package is great, but I wonder if Vodacom would be cheaper? I also wonder if the Cell C contract can be modified as it's hard to know how much data (there is wifi at home) and phone calls he'd use? He loves the new Cell C ad showing how he can use cloud services to have his phone and his ipad sync up...am I right in saying the it's only the iphone 4s that does this or do all models have that functionality?
Another concern is that he is in Constantia and had a very poor signal with MTN and Cell C - normally he has to go outside into the garden to talk. Eventually he shifted to Vodacom which has a better (but still quite poor) signal. So if he goes with Cell C, is there any way to test the signal around the house (other than asking friends to find someone who might be on Cell C)?
He's a bit nervous about contracts, having been screwed in the past by signing long 2 year deals and then having a phone that you can't even use at home cos there's no signal, so any advice would be most welcome.
