    Anybody signed up with Tymebank?

    I lost hope in Tyme Bank. Smartshopper issue is still not sorted after 3 working days and counting and to be honest I doubt it will get sorted. Months of headache with Telkom trying to get them to accept my Tyme Bank account. It was pretty nice when it was working but I think I'm going to move...

    Anybody signed up with Tymebank?

    There is no way to confirm. They do sometimes send a sms with how many points you received. You can have a look at your PnP points balance month end and see when it increases. When you scan/swipe your smartshopper card when you buy at PnP the points get allocated immediately for the shop but the...

    Very odd. Maybe not set up correctly or the router no reporting the correct cell id.

    Vodacom's massive investment in Rain

    I doubt that the US has the world by the b**** when it comes to mobile. China, South Korea, Singapore they are pretty good so Huawei will just need to find suitable alternative elsewhere.

    Vodacom's massive investment in Rain

    Are you talking about their network hardware? Even if that is true the network radios ect does not use Android so I doubt it will have any affect.

    Vodacom 2G coverage deteriorating

    But GSM 900MHz signal is still supposed to travel quite a distance. How can it be that I'm struggling with 2G coverage in the middle of Centurion surrounded by towers. You just have to look out the window and you looking at a tower.

    Vodacom 2G coverage deteriorating

    So is it just me or is 2G coverage deteriorating. I use my Vodacom contract which is on uChoose flexi R175 which receives R175 airtime monthly mainly just for calls as Vodacom has a 60min all network daily bundle for R12. It offers some decent value for money for calls although it's a daily...

    Huawei B525 external antenna suggestions

    Well you get average hight and start rotating the antenna. It is going to take some time because you can switch between bands. Write down cell id and obviously signal numbers. RSRP lower is better SINR higher is better.

    Telkom Mobile roaming on Vodacom

    You won't be able too. Vodacom roaming you can select 65502 or 65505. Both show as TelkomSA so when you manually search TelkomSA should be listed 2 times. One of them is Telkoms own network and the other one is Vodacom. You can't select Vodacom from the list.
