Depends on your data needs & preferences. Some ideas:I require data deals such as telkom monice, with the same rates., but without the ever so constant annoying issues
associated with monice, can anyone tell me if there is a better solution than telkom monice.
i have a Redmi Note 4 and it works fine on the Telkom network.
a few weeks ago i bought a new Redmi Note 9s because the Note 4 had fallen and the screen was cracked.
with my new phone, everything is ok except for the Mo'nice data.
when my SIM is in the Note 9, it DOES NOT detect the Monice data & i keep getting the Out of Bundle message.
but i have LOTS of data.
when i remove my SIM & put it into the Note 4, it works smoothly- no problems.
what to do?
Telkom is USELESS when it comes to issues that their staff find even slightly complicated.
That won't work, it's "transparent" roaming, your phone won't know that it's not on the Telkom network.It sounds like the Sim is roaming on the Vodacom Network. You can try to manually switch it back to Telkom's 4G network (Go to settings > Sim Cards and Mobile Networks > TelkomSA > Mobile Networks, and turn off Select Network Automatically) let it search for Networks, it may take a few minutes.
Then choose either TelkomSA 4G or 3G.
Or you can force the sim not to roam via the *180# menu. The downside is that since a phone is a mobile device, you may run into areas where there's no Telkom signal and if it can't roam you won't be able to receive calls.
There were so many complaints that telkom came up with the *180# option so you can completely disable roaming.That won't work, it's "transparent" roaming, your phone won't know that it's not on the Telkom network.
This is probably a case of Telkom/Vodacom messing up in regards to the tower in their area.
