    Lost Warranty, any solution?

    As most may know a service for a new car will be something like every 12months or 15000km, whichever comes first. I, for some reason, didn't pay attention to the first 12months and took my car in for it's 15000km service. Since I had missed the 12month service by several months, the...

    Unable to get ITC

    Hi, Hopefully there is a Cell C rep here that can help. A little while ago we were 'liberated' of 3 cellphones. The insurance wants ITC numbers to prove we have blacklisted the phones. We walk into Vodacom, and are instantly issued an ITC for the blocked phone. All electronic, no hassle. We...
