    MTN - MTN-Direct - Couriered a "Dead" phone on 22 May 2020 - 2 months later cancels upgrade.

    I remember getting an HTC DesireHD on contract from MTN. IIRC, it was ~R89/m on the AnyTime 100 contract. 24m. I sold the phone for R2.5k. Kept the SIM and the R100 airtime per month. Don't think you can do that anymore! A year or two later, MTN also sent me a DOA phone by mistake for an...

    data usage policy on RAIN

    That's the conundrum. Areas with Fibre get great rain speeds as they're not as over-subscribed. Areas without, which rely on mobile data, are dead in the water. When I was in the UK 5-6 yrs ago, I used 3's Unlimited-Data. I had LOS to the tower and also got 50Mbps + Then I think it was '4G...

    What to do in Cape Town : Level 3

    Public mastication is extra thrilling. We drove to Muizenberg - take aways and park watching the surfers and waves. Take your own food if worried. Can't stay cooped up all the time... With the mountain open again, I've been riding a lot more than I did before the lockdown. Pretty safe...

    I guess we will forever have to pirate in this country of ours

    I'm happy to keep my money if they don't want it. I'll get what I need either way. Sometimes piracy is just easier too, never mind the cost.

    Speed when upgrading

    Yup- next it'll be the wife's phone uploading the months pics/WhatsApp backup. Upload gets maxed and line dies for a few minutes. Always during a call. Uncanny. Even with the upgrade, I'm seeing such slow downs, they're just over quicker... I'm now looking at a guest network for non-workers...

    Experimental: Bridging Rain 24/7 and Unlimitted

    I tried Speedify and it wasn't that great. The free limits allow for brief testing but that's about it. As far as I can tell, Speedify is the only option for combining traffic. Dispatch helps with general browsing and multiple users/downloads but obviously for single threads you're still...

    24 versus 36 months - The total price of smartphone contracts

    For that much cash you can get a lekker laptop + an average phone. Surely most people would be better off with that combo? What day to day stuff are people doing that requires these phones?? I get execs etc running around with these, as they have the laptop to match. Your average Joe, no way..

    Telkom Freeme vs free airtime: which is used first?

    This show R30 free airtime, yet the free me bundle is depleted first: I thought free airtime was always supposed to be used first?
