I think it is done to stop foreigners from running RICA on a batch of SIM Cards, and then selling them.

I am also 'Blocked' 8 prepaid SIM Cards is the limit at retail stores like Jet, PEP, etc (combined)
Contract or Post Paid SIM Cards have no limit.
I probably have over 20 Pep sims in my name. Most are being used as data sims right now. The Networks take them back whenever they feel like like it, so I never thought it could become an issue.

One big issue here is we could be blocked from buying a new phone period. Stores like Game will force you to take and RICA a Vodacom sim if you buy a prepaid phone from them.

Buy from takealot then. As Game has been useless on phones for years.
