Telecommunications Complaints

I received a call from MTN to remind me that its time to upgrade. I told them I didn't want to upgrade because I like my phone. They said that's fine, in that case my monthly tariff will drop significantly. This made me very happy. Then I received a call from them to ask whether I'll be at home a certain time so they can deliver my parcel. This confused me as I couldn't imagine what they wanted to deliver. So they arrived with a simcard and I signed for it. There was no cost involved. I...

THERE WAS A FRAUDULENT UPGRADE ON MY ROUTER CONTRACT WITH VODACOM AND MY NIGHTMARE STARTED AFTER DISCOVERING THE UPGRADE IN JANUARY 2017. I VAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH A NUMBER OF DEPARTMENTS AT VODACOM AND MY CASE IS NOT EASY TO RESOLVE EVEN THOUGH THEIR FRAUD AND FORENSIC DEPATMENTS HAVE CLEARED ME OF WRONG DOING. WHAT SEEMS TO BE THE PROBLEM WITH VODACOM IS TO CLEAR ALL THE COSTS THAT I DO NOT KNOW OF AND STAR SENDING ME THE BILL AS THE USED TO.

Call centre agents 'ambush' client into believing they are updating information and then considers the call as a renewal of contract without speaking to a mandated person who has the authorizing contracts. Trudon was advised that CTU Head Office handles all aspects regarding renewals.

I have cancelled a few contracts prematurely and have paid the penalty on the 7th August that was almost R60 000. but still you bill me for the accounts cancelled every month. Every time I phone you say you will phone me back but never do. Customer service will not transfer me to a supervisor nor to some one that will be able to assist. I have had enough of this pathetic service. Could someone please sort this out for me.

I had a contract with Telkom Mobile which ended in December last year and according to you I did not owe you anything and I cancelled the contract. In September I apply for a bond with my bank only to find out I owe you R2,381,16 and because I really need the bond I go and pay this amount without any questions. A week later I get an sms and an email from FOURIE SIKWEYIYA INC lawyers saying that I'm listed on ITC and they cannot remove me until I pay them R3000+. I have called your called...

I have had the misfortune of having my cellphone stolen. I went into the MTN Lakeside store to have a sim swap and was advised that that the new sim would be active in 24 hours , 24 hours later nothing happened . When I called the MTN customer service i was advised that the sim failed due to being rejected by user . (I do not have access to network so I am not sure how that could be possible) needless to say i was advised that the stolen sim was not deactivated and I had to go back to the...

A fault was reported on my telephone line on 6th Sept 2017 252CEK090617 Service is extremely intermittent however ADSL works. Apparently a temporary line was installed during September to correct the initial fault and was subsequently damaged externally so I believe. Apparently no calls can be made or received on said line. The ability to call seems to be erratic at best. This has been ongoing since then despite numerous calls to the call centre to complain but it appears as though nothing is...

I loaded multiple airtime amounting to R100. I then converted the airtime to data. I bought a 2GB weekly data bundle. What happened next is that I received an SMS notification telling me my purchase of 100mb was successful. But I did not buy 100mb. MTN insists that I made a mistake and I'm pretty sure I didn't. Even on the listed options there is no 100mb option.

In June I was due for a upgrade. I called Vodacom telephonic upgrades dept. I concluded the upgrade contract over the phone. It started going wrong when the new handset was delivered in July. It was the incorrect handset so it was a huge hassle to return it to Vodacom. They took a few weeks to acknowledge receipt of phone. They then informed me my upgrade is cancelled and I need to do the upgrade from start. The terms had now changed to my disadvantage. The more I protested that original...

Took a 24 month contract, the huawei P8 lite has a manufacturing fault, took it in to the Benoni branch to request it be sent for repairs in which I was told that I have to pay, this is not acceptable as it is a manufacturing fault in which the bluetooth, wifi, data, is not working, this should not have been a problem to solve and the sales person at the branch was not very helpful.

On 31 August 2017 we reported to Telkom that our business telephone line is down - ref 296CTK310817. This has been the case for almost 8 weeks. We have been following up on a regular basis via telephone, emails, etc. Just got off the phone and still the same response... "...sorry sir, the cable department is attending to the problem. No EDT available. Please be patient....". Is our situation an isolated incident, or are there more customers experiencing the same lack of good service?
