Cell CCellphone contract termination

I cancelled my contract with Cell C in November. They sent me a settlement amount which I paid. They said the contract would end on the 30th of November. I received a billing for November, which I queried and was told the billing wasn't included in the settlement discount which I was given. Now I've received another billing for December, which I have paid even though I paid the settlement discount and was told the contract would end in November. I also noted that the contract was still showing as active on my credit report. I closed 3 accounts in November, only Cell C is playing cat and mouse games with me. I need to know when is this account going to be made inactive and why are they still billing me?

    I took my device for repairs on the 26 October 2020 and even now I haven't heard or got my device back. I have been making follow-ups with them but with no joy I am still taken from post to pillar and not satisfied.

    I am paying my account and insurance very well. I am not happy about this service and we all know we also heading to festive and very soon companies are closing. I have been without a phone almost 3 months already.

    I am very frustrated, if you would assist me as I am not being taken serious as a good paying customer together with questions that I am asking them and I don't get any response. This people are really failing me and making me unhappy.

        Cell CContract upgrade

        I went to cell c Promenade for an earl upgrade. I was advised to pay commitment fee plus November installment. Which I did. The consultant told me my debit order for the 28th won't deduct. Well it did. I paid cell c twice for the month of November [R304]. They did not even advise me on how to reverse the double payment. I told the consultant that I wanted huawei p 2021 smart. He agreed he will keep the the device. When I went at 4pm to get the phone. He said one of his colleague sold the phone. I was so disappointed and angry. This phone I was buying it for my wife. Now I ended up buying Huawei P 40. Which is expensive. With less benefits. P smart 2021 comes with power bank and pouch. I ended up with a P40 which does not come with a power bank and free pouch but I must pay R369. I regret visiting cell c promenade. I love cell c but nothing more I regret than this early upgrade which I ended paying more money and bad service. [protected]. [protected]@gmail.com

            Cell CDevice only order missing

            Bought a device only from Cell C and the order went missing.
            Still not resolved, kept phoning and getting transferred from one division to another and no one can assist.

            So their system doesn't work, such bad service and now they are taking my R3499.00 and I'm getting a device. The device is the LG K51s, I even bought a cell phone cover and screen guard from another website the same day; was looking forward to this device but now I guess I won't receive it and will have to purchase a phone somewhere else.

            Cell C will never ever see me as client again.

              Cell CClaim for a nokia 5 that is broken or

              I've never seen such a hustle to claim after being such a loyal customer for such a long time. I have two contracts with cell c and 3 divice contracted with c surance, I have experienced a disservice for 6 months since may 2020 between c cell repairs department and c surance between more than 40 emails and endless calls. Even the staff at cell c powerstation eyethu mall been trying to assist as begun to get frustrated. Payed the access fee requested, premium for all 3 devices are debited from my account every month and I'm still without the device I claimed for. The device was booked twice and returned to cell c powerstation eyethu mall twice, I received an email saying that the device is returned to cell c powerstation eyethu mall and I need 5o re-book it for the 3rd time since May. I just need to cancel all 3 premiums and never go back to cell c for any service, be it using their network, buying airtime or taking up contracts. I'm Rafure Joshua Thafeng...
