So, what happens when one recharges tomorrow? I would've thought Cell C would've clarified their position by now since the old 'Woza Whenever' ended two days ago. I find this situation pretty lame and disappointing.

Nothing happens. Just bought R150 (for the 500MB bundle) and I only received the 100 free minutes.

/off to go check voda, mtn, 8ta packages

EDIT:

Following smearing campain against AKC? It only shows how much work needs to be done with Cell C. It his first month...

the thing is, cell c promised a new promo would start on the 20th of April. An upstanding (even newly elected) CEO should make sure that something happens when promises are made. Also, it is blatantly obvious that we customers are not even worth the effort for cell c to provide some kind of press release explaining the delay (assuming a promo is in fact in the pipeline).
Yet at the same time, whenever AKC flaps his gums its all over MyBB.

So it may be his first month. But if he is misstepping in this manner already - coupled with the fact that he has a wealth of experience in the industry - ... I am seriously doubting that I would be happy with cell c in the near future. Lars would never have let this happen

Exactly battletoad!!!!

That is what I also expected from Cell C. If there is a problem then let your customers know.

What makes you angry? broken promise or lack of press release? If later, I think it is all right, no product - no press release.

I agree with battletoad, if this 2 minutes incoming call (promo or whatever it is) results in 1 free minute call to on net users then this is total B.S!
Frankly, I was expecting something new to the table from Cell C but this is a total disappointment. There was no new promo at all! I am so disappointed in them, Mr AKC must do something quickly before many subscribers including me decide to jump ship. :(

a little bit of both, but I understand your point.

In my mind Cell C was the darling of the communications companies, the little engine that could... the champion of the people. With the appointment of AKC, one might feel that that image will transform to one of a corporation which answers solely to shareholders (could be good, but we pessimistically expect it to be bad). A bit naive of me I know since these are companies whose whole existence depends on the bottom line.

Now we know that one of the targets AKC is gunning for is increasing market share to 25%. How this is going to happen, no one knows. It is arguably a given that much of reaching that milestone involves catering very well to existing customers. But nothing has been said about how Cell C will be treating current customers. All we hear is "25%, data is important, call quality blah blah"... just throw us a frigging carrot already to show us that we still matter! Lol, there I'm doing it again... expecting something from Cell C for being a loyal customer.

Anycase rant over. I'll do the mature thing and vote with my wallet. I will return to Cell C once they have among the best packages available.

Recharged with R70 today, got the usual free 70 minutes from Cell C to Cell C valid until Sunday midnight msg.

Nothing has changed. I blame this on the idiot who sent out those SMSs telling us that there was going to be a new promotion on the 20th April.

Looking forward to some feedback, with good or bad news. At least we'll know whether to stay or go...

I expect that new promo will be focusing on smart phone market. Not a similar to MTN specials advertised on TV (aimed to disctract people and let then thinkig that MTN has an offer, while in fact they don't), but a real one, with monthly allocation between 500MB and 1GB. Heavy downloaders will be disappointed, so they walk away to 8ta and MTN "uncapped". I can be wrong... Hopefully it will be specials for prepaid users too and 3Gig/365 will stay longer.

Hey guys, about a week ago I received an SMS from Cell C informing me of the new upcoming Woza promotion starting this month. The old promo ends on the 19th of April, more info later this month. My question is, has anybody got an info pertaining this upcoming promotion? How will it work?

I just can't wait, if anybody already has an info please let me know!
I am anxious now.


Well i just heard, u get 50% back for every rand u recharge...to call any network...m not so psyched though, was hoping for more.
