I was hoping to get onto a 500GB MTN package and also need a new phone / voice contract.
haven't seen any good deals.

considering that Vodacom deal. where do you find it.

Vodacom is a little slower in my town, but works during load shedding, whereas MTN doesnt

Wow, being R150 cheaper, this puts the MTN 500+500 @499 I am on to shame. MTN really hooked me in with this 3 year contract but hopefully been sim only I can cancel at anytime without much of a penalty.
The one significant advantage of the MTN 500gb deal we got is it supports Datashare whereas the Vodacom one doesn't as far as I have seen.

But the fact that MTN towers die with loadshedding is a real bummer, it never used to be like that but now it seems widespread.

Is there a current deal like that?
I'm referring to the last year's BF 500gb that many of us got.
yeah, i couldnt get that as i wasnt an existing customer.

apparently they have a 500GB lte package for R499..

they say you can't datashare though

Anyone know of any deals that can data share?
I was told by vodacom store only the red plans can data share, so none of the ones on promotion.
I was told by a MTN store none of this year Black Friday deals can data share

You will have phone them to find out, if normal sim no problem, honestly. Bf deals run till 1 st December, for new clients, bf upgrades pretty much when ever.

Received BF upgrade offers as early as August.

I'm currently on Telkom, but I can close that contract and port to mtn but I don't think it will happen before 1st of December

So what I am hoping is that I can keep my physical Telkom sim in my iPhone and then take out a MTN contract, on a esim, load the esim on my iPhone as my secondary simcard and register that same esim on my apple watch?

You can not.

These deals are locked to a specific list of routers and locked to 4G only and can not make calls. This is for the Black Friday Home packages. Not sure the others.
