Just reading this, highlights for me why Vodacom has the biggest customer base in SA.They are usually the first to roll out the latest cellphone range - that is one thing they consistently get right.

Just go month to month with CellC in the meantime. And then upgrade to a deal when you find the right one.

Vodacom might have the phone early but they failed with the launch. If you check on these forums you will see what lengths jhart had to go to to get the phone.
I went to MTN and no one had stock. I ended up cancelling my contract. If you say available from 1 Oct, make sure its available.

Just hang in there dude. Take this from someone who recently renewed his contract with Vodacom.
Each night around 6PM I slap myself in the face 10 times with an old rusty bicycle chain.
It's the least I deserve.

Thanks for the eye opener, literally. Haha, guess it will be worth it waiting for Cell C.

Go on the cell c straight up month to month contract rather,alot easier than buying airtime and you can get out of it anytime you like.

It's an insane phone hey.

Got 163 apps installed. Bluetooth, Wifi, Mobile Data on 24/7. Llama, 3G Watchdog, GSM Battery Monitor, Whatsapp and GTalk running 24/7. GMail sync on.
Averaging 1.1% PH battery drain.

Played with the pen and stuff last night. Way better than the Note 1 was.

Shhhhhhh, my sanity is on the verge of collapsing about this damn thing, can't recall ever being as obsessed about something as this :wtf:
I'm gonna be screwed when I finally get my hands on one....exams starts next week through to end November...not a good combination:erm:

EDIT: Ok, maybe it might have something to do with the fact that I'm stuck with a BB8520..
