Thanks for that Jamie. I'm sure this will be very useful for first timers and travelers.

Now that you have all these SIMs, how about doing a "porting shootout"? (And we want full disclosure of the meds you're going to need by the end of the exercise :)).

Don't forget the 10 minutes it takes to photoshop and print a fake proof of address.

Took me 2-3 minutes today at my local Pick ‘n Pay Money Counter. (MTN)

A Smart ID was used as proof of ID and my latest Telkom statement for proof of address.

Cost was R3 something if I’m not mistaken.

Edit: Paperless RICA wasn’t even presented as an option (HANIS, just like at the TymeBank Kiosk).

R50 for a batch of 10 from the guy at the shop down the road already done with this silly process.

Ackermans. R1, 20 minutes in the Queue, but no proof of address requested. I just wrote it on a piece of scrap paper.

RICA is fkn pointless.
