Thread: New Cell C contract promotion

  1. #31

    Even if SMS are becoming cheaper less expensive, it is still ridiculously overpriced.

    I still don't see how one SMS can cost the same as 1Mb of data (on this deal), or 67% more than 1Mb on the 15c/Mb deal.

    1. Yes, the phones will change every year - depending on what is in the market at the time you will be able to select a handset of equal value.
    2. The 15c rate is only applicable to data contracts and data bundles.

    R124 x 12= R1488.

    The cash price of a Nokia Asha 302 or 303 is +- R1400.

    Does not seem like such a good deal to me. More like a savings plan to buy the phone each year.

    Pfft.
    Like Rockhound, I also got out the calculator and, for example, on a 24 month contract, the Samsung Y Pro comes in at the RRP 1499, so no discount there.

    Then I went to Bid or Buy and found the Y Pro on offer for R1199.

    I've never been a fan of contracts, and only took out an R30 straight up to get the free added data & SMS. I also can cancel this 'contract' at any-time.

    Best buy your own phone & avoid this addiction to my free upgrade, which is the best pair of contractual handcuffs I've ever seen!

    If I buy a 12 MB bundle with the inclusive airtime, would I then enjoy the 15c/MB OOB rate for 30 days?

    You really are cost conscious!

    Those cannot seriously be the product names of Cell C contracts?

    Just imagine a conversation with your mates discussing cellphone contracts and you blurt out "I'm on the Erica Cell C contract", and the inevitable "chic contract" comments that will follow "what a screamer" and so forth.

    Lol, "I have to get Sandra this year at any cost".

    OR,

    I don't know whether to get Monica, Erica, Jessica, Tumi or Sandra. They all look attractive.

    I wonder what the psychoanalysts would read into Cell C's decision to import a pimp to push these contracts in TV adverts that feature women paid to portray a somewhat slutty image. I'm not complaining, I just think it is a "played out" marketing strategy from a different decade.

    Moral of the story, make sure you are sober before signing a contract, you never know what you might wake up to.
