    Default Cell Phone Contract Rant...........

    So kry ek Saterdag 'n SMS vanaf daai GEEL selfoon company wat so baie van die Somer hou.

    We have not received Payment of R 3736.66 please visit your nearest Branch or Bank or pay in-store to reconnect.

    Skrik my gat af maar hel dit gaan swaar maar darem nog nie SO swaar nie.

    Gisteroggend selfde rympie.

    Vandag kry ek iets " you wont be able to make calls until you have paid R 3736.66".

    Trek gou 'n Bankstaat, sien die Debietorder van R 4033.89 is af gisteraand die eerste.

    Ry na my naaste geel tak toe, daar staan die mense in die straat af, met 2 wat in hulle neuse staan en grawe. Ek ry toe maar na die Mall toe. Daar is dit stil, en ek stap in.

    En ek strike hierdie mannetjie met sulke bokser - styl hare wat so half staan en le. Nie die hare nie, die hele lyfie.

    " Hallo Oom ".

    Ek verduidelik die hele ding, wys hom die staat, en hy bel iemand op sy selfoon met die gekraakte skerm.

    En ons hou aan, seker maklik 15 minute.

    En hy beginne met my piele vleg.

    "Het Oom onlangs ge upgrade"?.......ek se hom nee, ek het nuwe kontrak met my ou foon gevat, ek like die foon en spaar nog geld ook.

    "Hmmmm Oom dis maar 'n ou Samsung daai"........ek bly stil en my bril wasem op van OF de moeingeit OF daai masker wat oor my gesig is OF beide.

    Na nog 10 minute se staan en overheat tune hy my "Oom hulle antwoord nie. Kan Oom darem nog bel?" " Ja ek kan".

    Oom moet dan maar net aanhou soos altyd, ek dink dit was 'n fout met die Banke se depietorders of iets. As Oom kan bel is alles mos darem nog OK".

    Nee alles is NIE OK nie. Ek vra hom om net te check dat daar limits is op al die fone op my rekening, dalk het een foon oorgegaan en ek het 'n helse rekeing (het al vantevore gebeur).

    " Als reg Oom ek bel Oom voor 12 uur".

    En dan ....... ek het amper 'n bloedklont gekry........" Oom het nie vir my dalk 'n salesman djoppie daar by Oom nie"??

    1) Nee ek het nie

    2) Ek wag nog dat hy my bel

    Its an MTN problem.
    Lots of us got the message. I was lucky, I found a very quiet and very helpful MTN shop yesterday, as I walked in, I said theres a problem with my debit order. the lady told me straight away not to worry, its an MTN issue, and the debit order will come off in the next day or two.
    I see the debit order came off last night. Something to do with the short Feb month.

    My mom wasnt so lucky, had a terrible MTN shop assistant, the assistant made her pay in the store. Now her debit order has also just come off, so she's paid twice now.
    Skelms.

    Same here, the problem I have it's their fault but they charge me extra because the payment was "late".


    It's only R 20 but add all the subscribers together and it's a lot of money.

    Ek kan nie verstaan hoekom mens deesdae na 'n plek toe moet gaan net vir hulle om dan die call center te bel, dit is die selfde met banke, jy gaan in, sit en wag en as hulle jou eindelik help bel hulle maar net die call center soos wat jy van die begin af self kon gedoen het sonder om na hulle toe te ry.
    Banke en selfoon winkels kan netsowel al hulle takke toe maak en net call centers he.

    Oor MTN, oor Desember is ek saam my neef, hy wil 'n MTN prepaid SIM koop. Draf in by die MTN winkel, o nee hulle kan hom nie help want hulle vat nie bestuurs lisensie as bewys vir RICA, net ID. Hier se die dame sommer gaan hier langsaan na Pep, hulle vat eenige iets. Wat se dit van die RICA stelsel? R3.50 later en skaars 2 kyke na die lisensie en hy het 'n Pep MTN SIM.

    Then I presume it was just date related... the end of the month came early...

    Up to now, all the instances I was aware of were with Nedbank... and they are drowning in their own procedural/system failures after their February 18 "upgrade".
