    Default Vodacom "Dialup" number

    HI guys,

    If you remember VC had a 082 dialup no a few years back. You did not need an ISP and got charged for the call.
    I want to know :
    (a) if this is still running
    (b) will free Vodacom minutes be used when dialling to this no ( i remember that free minutes could be used as it is a CSD call )
    (c) if available, what is the number and what is the username/password and other settings

    anyone who has info please input...
    V3g: maybe u can confirm the fastest?

    thanks guys

    If they are running HSCSD it depends on the time slots, if you get 4 slot you will get 57.6 kbit/s which is the limit i think.

    thanks...i actually meant: V3g can be the fastest in replying to those questions...

    in anycase, regarding speed, i think the max is 45kbps - anything to use up 800 free off peak min ( 3 contracts )

    If I were you, I would check my free minutes balance, phone the number and listen to the screeching for a minute or 2, hang up, and check the free minutes balance again. If it has been reduced, obviously free minutes apply. If not, then you have to worry about a R5 call.

    Just a suggestion, use it,don't use it...

    TRy 082-249-1000, but I suspect it's a VAS service and won't use your free minutes.

    Mailed customercare. This is what they said:
    Thank you for your email communication to Vodacom.

    Please note that internet dial up is a slow, outdated, costly means of connecting to the internet.

    Below are the answers to your questions:

    1-You are still able to use csd to connect to the internet.
    2-free minutes do not apply as it is a VAS call
    3-The number is +27822491000 password : Vodacom user name : Vodacom

    Should you have any further queries, please contact us via e-mail at customercare@vodacom.co.za.
