So that's why the *123# USSD has been so troublesome today! I keep getting connection error while dialing it.

Edit. If anyone wins anything, do let us know.

I also got constant errors when dialing *123#

It's working now, however that Chinese thing, I get an SMS a few hours later saying some random crap. Nothing like, "You didn't win try again etc"

How does it even work? Can you just spam it or what?

Mo'Nice deals are still the same.

I won 150MB on the SIM I bought a few years ago for the 500GB R50 special promo. You can only enter once a day.
This is not my main SIM, but I'll use the 150MB data. It's valid for today only.

So what does this crap mean? Did you win something? Didn't you win? Friggen Telkom is so cryptic.

Nothing won yesterday.

I'll enter daily just because.

I've edited my MoNice contact from *123*1*1# (direct to data offers) to *123*1*3# (direct to this thing)

Nooit ekse. This is stupid. Random sayings sent to a person. Telkom is jerking us off.

These things aren't worth it if they're not giving you something.

All the potential good will squandered.

Why give a kak 'fortune' message and piss people off when you could just give them what they came for: some small amount of data/a few minutes (even if only to Telkom numbers).

Come on. That costs them almost nothing and generates customer engagement, instead there's the sour taste of BS.

Telkom What did we expect. :rolleyes:
