[Resolved] Cell C / limited to no signal

South Africa Review updated:

This email was sent: 10/04/2017
We are very unhappy with the service we get from cell c. The day we applied for this offer on 2 numbers of our vodacom contract you knew that we are staying in limpopo. With great shock everybody in every cell c shop and call centre is telling me that limpopo has got limited signal. I should roam on vodacom. Really what is the use! I roam on vodacom 95% of the time. I struggle with signal even though that was the reason for our move.

What I need from you is to move me. Back to vodacom without any costs as I did not have any of these incompetent service from them as I get from cell c. I logged more than 1 call. Various reference numbers: [protected] (November 2016) / [protected] (November 2016) / [protected] (March 2017) / [protected] (March 2017).

We are using our phones for our business and are losing business because I don’t have signal! I always have to switch from cell c to vodacom and back!

I cannot go on like this.

The other number that we have the same problem with is [protected].

Back to vodacom please and thank you!

I have family that is sitting with the same problem and will give you the numbers you are welcome to phone them:

Charles van der walt – [protected]
Charles vd walt (Jr.) – [protected]
Jacolien van der walt – [protected]
Annerie vd walt - [protected]

I hope to hear from you because your call centre just don’t care as nobody has phoned me. Back with any solutions. Just limited signal we can’t do anything about that!

I still refer to this matter. Since I received an email back from brummer badenhorst on the 10th of april I haven't heard from anybody regarding this matter.

Clearly cell c don't think this is a matter of urgency.

I will take this further as cell c is not interested to solve my problem.

Still no reply from anybody

I can't work like this today I received sms notifications of missed calls. My phone did not even ring!

    I am from Blinbonnie Road, Bonela, Mayville, Durban.
    I have the same issue, no signal for over a yr now. Each time we call cell c, they give us a ref number and say a technician will be dispatched to sort this. Nothing is been done. Ther is no tower by us which I have repeatedly said but no help. All my neighbours and my family use cell c but if this continues I think we will have to change networks. No 48.

    @s157 So today i got a call stating that they have checked the area and decided to install a tower as there is no tower there which i did state initially. I asked when and the response was that they dont know when. So please tell me how long will I be waiting, another year or two
