    Vodacom: false upgrade promise?

    That's probably what she meant, but she did explicitly say 2Gb on the first of every month. :(

    Vodacom: false upgrade promise?

    My VC contract expired end of Feb, so I was going to port my number to prepaid. However, when I phoned up, they offered me a deal of R125 airtime and 2Gb of data per month for R79. How could I say no? Of course, now it's the new month and there is no 2Gb of data. What number do I phone to...

    Mecer 1000va offline ups - mute beeping?

    UPS Assistant also works. But on my ups, it only remembers the setting for one session - you set it to off, power goes out, no beeping. Power goes out a second time, beeping. Guess I'm going to have to try the prestik route.

    Medical help when living alone

    Thanks, great help with the cat suggestions :p I guess I'll have to look at medical monitoring. It feels like overkill, but this is clearly my life now... And then I assume they'll keep keys or use a key box, so that solves that.

    Medical help when living alone

    True. I'm just used to being very independent and hate asking for help. I guess I have to get over that... At the very least, leaving keys with a neighbour is a good idea.

    Medical help when living alone

    So over the weekend I was pretty ill, almost passed out at home, but luckily I managed to phone my mom and she came over and got me to hospital. But it got me thinking, since I live alone and don't have any close friends: If I had a medical emergency, and managed to call an ambulance but...

    Medication during load shedding

    The only problem with packing it in water & ice is that it shouldn't go below 2 degrees... but I can play around with that and see how the temperature fluctuates. Good idea! I also like the insulin cooler, might be a great solution for when I start travelling again. As usual, mybb has the...

    Medication during load shedding

    So I have horribly expensive medications that have to be kept between 2 and 8 degrees. At the moment, load-shedding isn't frequent enough to cause problems - as long as I don't open the fridge, it stays cold enough. But I worry for the future... I considered getting a little desktop drinks...

    Life is my New Year’s wish, but will medical aid pay?

    Omw. Try managing rheumatoid arthritis (or lupus) with diet. And COPD is very different to emphysema. On topic, discovery have been very good with my terribly expensive biologics. But I had to upgrade to classic comp for them to pay for it.

    FLLA phones?

    Sorry, don't know why I didn't see this till now! I'm in Kenilworth, but I know people in Plumstead who are in the same situation.

    FLLA phones?

    So Telkom phoned me today to say that they're cancelling all copper lines in my area and replacing them with FLLA. I get the device free, but... what is this device? I can't find much on the net, and the only pic I did find looks like the phone isn't cordless. I really prefer a cordless...

    Welcome to the new MyBroadband Forum

    On the mobile theme... Any chance the word "Report" could be replaced by a symbol, it moved to the right? At the moment it looks like every person who's posted ended their post with the word Report :-) Ooh, I do like the "expand" link on quotes. But I would like an option to increase the...

    Takealot Vouchers (Begging) Thread

    I just want one little book :( It's about R400, and if I don't get it at a discount, I'm going to have to wait till December for the paperback version.

    Takealot Vouchers (Begging) Thread

    Okay, I should have written a longer sentence: Even though I reacted before reading your full post, and entered the code, I only entered it once. And just that one wrong entry seemed to be enough for me to get the error message saying that I've entered too many wrong codes.
