Vodacom and Cell C still allowing their LTE networks to eat people's data

“We encourage customers to change their Data Limit Lock (DLL) to R0 as soon as they purchase a new prepaid SIM,” Vodacom said.

I've had a SIM of theirs in my last 2 smartphones by now, and have never been "encouraged" or informed by anyone at Vodacom to do this - how does one go about it ?

..... need to contact them or is there a USSD code that'll sort it out ?
 
Fine them heavily then it will immediately stop. Use money to build factories, create work
 
If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably fraud.

Or are Voda and Cell C arguing that MTN and Telkom do not offer LTE service?

@Jan How about testing those SIMs in some old 3G or 2G devices?
 
The SIMs were inserted into identical Nokia 5 devices.
Completely off topic: has Nokia recovered from its Microsoft assimilation and subsequent deassimilation, are the handsets worth considering (to anyone that daily drives a recent Nokia smartphone)?

They are competent devices with a good software experience (stock android)

But you will tend to get better hardware for the Same price with Xiaomi, Poco, Vivo and Samsung.
 
Where's ICASA when consumers need them.

If MTN & Telkom can ensure no data loss, then there is no excuse for Vodacom & Cell-C.

:mad:

When ICASA changed their regulations ~2 years ago, Vodacom/MTN were obligated to issue SMSs on the matter, and that's when I changed mine, well, my prepaid number.
 
Just checked my data usage - Using the Vodacom App.

11.70 MB data used by Facebook.

I am not on Facebook - you blokes are awesome.

Not sure what Peer to Peer data I used either
