MTN Outletunsatisfied with the phone given

O Review updated:

My contract was up for a possible renewal with mtn. I went to mtn the glen to renew my contract. I chose a nokia for business which I returned to the outlet within 48 hours. I was not happy with the features of the phone.In fact my personal view was that the phone is over marketed and the features were exaggerated. The outlet was not prepared to listen at my problem instead they disregarded my complaint and raised a lot of unjustified issues which I was never alerted nor do they exist in my contract. Mtn was not at all helpful instead they send me back to the outlet.

    I have had equally poor service from an MTN outlet and the call center when trying to cancel my contract. The service standards at MTN has been consistently poor and I am moving to Vodacom where service standards for me have been much better.

    i have received an sms notifying me of my debit order from mtn of R550. I then went to mtn store and they didn't want to help me they say they are offline though they are assisting other customers. i want mtn to close this contract because i have not opened any account from mtn. i am going to take legal action against mtn if they don't assist me.

    I have a limit on my cell phone account.

    My account with MTN is not in arrears.
    How on earth is it possible that I am billed R900 for my current account?

    My account is usually R382.
    Never more than R450.
    I will get to the bottom of this, failing which I shall change my cell phone provider.

    Mtn didn't keep to my credit limit and made excessive billings on roaming. No assistance has been received form the billings queries manager and I have now reported mtn to the national consumer council

    I have been wrongly billed. After numerous complaints with no help. I approached Cradle Stone in November'18. She logged a query again and came back to me a week later with a resolution at long last. I was to pay +-R6400 and MTN to reimburse me with +-R2000. I paid December'18, but the blacklisting has not lifted after numerous complaints.

    It's been three months now, I subscribed for a 15gigs data bundle from mtn and I only received 10gigs of data but they still deducting the full amount every month. It's annoying because their 808 customer care centre is not helping at all.

    The staff ( juanita) is ALWAYS too busy to assist with anything, when you phone in with a query she will lock the ticket and never does it.
