I took out a new cellphone contract on Jan 2012, which is after the implementation of the Consumer Protection Act (CPA). I am planning on going overseas for a few months early next year. Is it possible to suspend my contract for those months so that I don't have to incur the monthly fees? It's a 24 month contract, so even if I extend the contract beyond the original termination date it will be worthwhile. I called the Vodacom helpline but alas no help.
Does the CPA have any clause which will allow me to suspend it?
