Hi, I cannot get through to Cell C's Technical Support Centre as I need to get in touch with them in order for my router to connect to the internet. Ie. If I connect via wifi (using either Ipad, laptop or mobile) the router shows me a cross (X) and it does not want to connect to Cell C. Cell C has been charging me, although this problem has been continuing for the past month and a half.

i want to do a sim swap but your customer service is a bit low and your consultants always put me on hold. My cell number is 0844513357
Ms. Amanda Says Aug 28, 2013
I don't like this new fair BIS usage thing, because my friends and I expect it to last the whole month. This causes a change, an instability, so a couple of people I know are gradually moving to other networks. So dissapointed. I'm changing too.
Ms. austeria ntsike Says Aug 22, 2013
I bought LG CELLPHONE MODEL E405 at Cell C Lochlogan shop L105 &107 Lochlogan Bloemfontein in the Free State. The phone could not work and I returned it immediately to the shop. They told me that they could not give my money back because they are to fill some kind of form, send it to Johannesburg for authorization of refund. it is almost two weeks I have not gotten my money back. What is happening? Is this the way cell C wants to portray itself to the customers? What kind if service is this? I want my money back or else I will have to tell everybody about your unprofessional handling of the customers and will have to resort to other means of getting my MONEY BACK!
Mr. Clinton cupido Says Aug 15, 2013
I have logged a complaint and have spoken to 3 or more call centre agents, asking them why is the bad internet connection persisting its been over a month and the problem is still on going, no one have answers yet they point to their Technitians but no resolution has come of this, I'm on a contract with them and I'm paying every month on time for a service I'm not getting, how is this good for me and even worse what bad repution is Cell C building, I'm tired of this network and their lack of customer service I would really like to get out of this contract binding me to them but I don't know how.
Mr. Paul Mamabolo Says Aug 12, 2013
I live in Centurion (Pretoria) and have been a Cell C client for more than 3 years - I have two data contracts with Cell C. Since beginning of 2013 I have to been able to connect on internet using my i-pad and the moderm. The two contracts I have with Cell C are now useless for me but I get charged every month for them. My main number is 0843197592 over and above the data contracts.
Ms. Ms Martin Says Aug 12, 2013
I have been using my vodacom simcard for 13 years and suddenly im not able to make or receive any calls or messages on my phone. So I called vodacom to see what was the problem. Then they told me that cell c was porting my number. Where they got permission I dont have a clue. I am very frustrated thinking that something so personal can be changed without my authority. I am lost without my phone and this is clearly an unnecessary incident that should not have happened in the first place. I want a full investigation to be conducted on how this happened. This is unacceptable and ridiculous.
Ms. Jastmine Says Aug 08, 2013
I experience difficulties getting through to your consultants. I had R68.00 on my account and my the only thing im using in the morning is text messages . I didn't make any calls yet and sms 11 msgs and got left R33.85. How much does cell c charge per sms and the only time i spoke to a cell c consultant if they called for new contracts. Im currently deciding to go back to Vodacom where i get all the time quality services all the time, Cel C never available. Could you please call me urgently on 0827047905

Mr. Johann Joubert Says Jul 15, 2013
I still have problem with Cell C 3G and cell phone services in the Rooihuiskraal area (Centurion). I was promised feedback via e-mail and phone call. But I have received nothing. But the services are deteriorating further. There are times that there is no signal at all. At the same time I cannot access internet, friends next door are downloading 6 & 7 MByte files on MTN and Vodacom. I cannot contact them on cell or they me.
I finally got in now after trying for 10 minutes to lodge this complaint
