Thread: 078? What service provider?

  1. #1

    Default 078? What service provider?

    I'm sitting here in the US and need to know what company - MTN, Vodacom or Cell C - has this prefix. Also can I top up from here? Thanks.

    MTN. If you have an SA bank account and internet banking you can top up from there.

    Could have sworn 078 was Virgin mobile, what code do they use on their network?

    074 I think, at least the one VM sim I had was 074.

    How awesome was it when we had 082 (Voda) and 083 (MTN)?

    How many do we actually have now? 072, 073, 076, 074, 078, 082, 083 and 084?

    For most of these prefixes we have to thank the probably millions of inactive (on its way to expire) prepaid sims.

    Aren't those Telkom Maxicall/Sharecall or whatever numbers?

    Telkom sharecall is 0861, but I'm pretty certain that I've seen someone with an 086 prefix on their cellphone number.

    0740 = Vodacom
    0741 = CellC which Virgin use
    0749 = Vodacom
