    Telkom SA SOCcustomer service

    Booked in my Samsung cellphone which was still under warranty and was told it will be sent to JHB for repair. I received several sms`s to say they booked it in, it was received, and submitted to insurance and lastly a sms with reference number TRL 031541, that i must pay R188.00 to have my phone released as i did not accept the quote for repairs.

    I never even received a quote for the repair, not forgetting the fact that the phone was still under warranty and now i must pay to have my phone released without the necessary repairs. I tried to get the phone back from the store but they said it was still in JHB and after phoning the repair centre the repair centre refused to speak to me over the phone and rudely told the store owner that i must just pay the money and take my phone back. I phoned the number 081180 and after waiting almost half and hour and being cut off several times I was given a number of the repair centre and that number does not exist. I`m not a violent person, but should I get the address of the repair centre in JHB I will make a personal visit to them the next time i am in JHB. For that bit of satisfaction, i will gladly bid farewell to the piece of **** Samsung J1 Ace.

    I will never again do business with telkom. Once the two contracts I have with them come to and end i will camcel and go to another service provider.

      Telkom SA SOCblacklisted for telkom account that I do not have!

      In June 2014 I applied for a ADSL line from Telkom. I waited for a very long time and nothing happened. I went into the Telkom store in Tzaneen and cancelled my order. The gentleman at the counter showed me on his screen that the order had been cancelled. a year later, June 2015 I received an account from Telkom for 2 x sims cards. I phoned them immediately and reported this as a mistake. My ref # [protected]. the dispute was declined because there was movement on the account - which is obvious because otherwise they would not have sent me an invoice? I was requested to report this to Telkom's fraud line - which I did - nothing happened I just kept on getting invoices. Eventually they handed me over to MBD attorneys and I was blacklisted. These people does not seem to understand that I have reported and sent all the info numerous times, they keep on harassing me. I went to Polokwane Telkom offices to find out what to do. The gentleman at the counter told me that he cannot find any documentation in my name and requested me to forward all the info to him - which I did. Still they are harassing me at work for a payment! I refuse to make any payment as I have never had an account with them! could somebody please sort this mess out??????

        Telkom SA SOCbilling issue

        I am really dissatisfied with the level of service received by the after service team the past few days.
        I had a contract with Telkom mobile and have been billed in arrears every month. Even this month (November) I am been billed for October.
        In store I was told that in December I will be billed for November and was also validated a day later by a customer care supervisor.
        Now I am told by multiple agents that In December I will be billed for November and December. How can I be billed for December within the month of December when the month would not be over cause my debit goes off on the 27th.
        This is an upgrade and not a new line so your billing should continue as it was but with a higher premium but in this case, the billing changed completely and now I have to pay for 2 months.
        Nobody can provide me valid reasons and all they know is that is how the billing works.
        I spoke to more than people over days and spending more than 3 hours of my time to be in the same position I started at is really ridiculous.
        I will be terminating my contract as it is still within the cooling off period.
        Will never refer anyone to Telkom Mobile as I did in the past.

          Telkom SA SOCsmart plan 150

          I reported my phone lost and stolen about a month ago (October). They suspended my line as per normal. I then asked them to reactivate my line and they informed me that my line was suspended due to non payment (even though it was paid for, I have the notification from fnb). They then told me in November that payment has reflected and my line will be active within 72h (15 November ). It's now the 28th and still no line. I have spoken to many agents and all the say they will escalate it to the relevant department. They all say that the elusive back office will magically activate my line. But they never do...

            Telkom SA SOCtelephone & adsl line

            Tel: [protected] e chelin 7 annandale, 14a st helier road, gillitts

            I have been without a telephone or adsl line for more than six weeks.
            This is of great concern as my husband has a heart problem and my 88 years old mother-in-law who had dementia lives with us and we feel very concerned
            That we cannot get hold of medical attention should the need arise. Due to the positioning of our house cellular service is at most times non existent.

            When I phone 10210 I am constantly told they are working on it. On one of the days they said they came to my house and couldn’t access the property despite the fact
            That I said they must phone my cell and I will come home from work. On another day I was told they would be coming and I went home and sat there for 3 hours and nobody pitched up.

            I have been billed a second month for a service I am not getting.

            Is there anything that can be done to help with this problem

                Telkomhuawei wireless handsets

                Dear Sir/ Madam

                I am sending this email on behalf of my mother Mrs. Louisa Orie, telephone number [protected].

                My mother has had a pre-paid waya-waya telephone line for the past few years. Some time back one of your consultants phone her Carol Kovack, hope I spelled the name correct to introduce your new wireless handsets. She explained all about the fact that Telkom is changing to the new wireless phones everybody will have to change to this new phones. To make a long story short this wireless phone was delivered to my mother on the 17th October 2016. On the 18th October 2016 I tried to contact this phone following all the instructions putting in the battery and sim card charging as required. After battery was fully charged I switched the phone on but on the screen it reads ‘SIM REGISTRATION FAILED”. Since that day this phone has not been working and the sad part is that my mother’s normal phone line was cut stating that Telkom has transferred the service to this new phone.

                Since the 18th October 2016 I have been phoning all the Telkom numbers for assistance with no luck of being assisted (All the numbers that I called 10210, 10213, 081180, [protected]). I was told to go to Telkom office which I did and that is another story I stay in King William’s Town and there is no Telkom office in King William’s Town I had to drive 45 min to East London for a Telkom office. I went to that shop 3 times with no luck. The answer that I got from them is that they cannot assist me because the lady that first started the deal Carol Kovack never registered the phone on the Hawei system. Emails was send by Telkom office and your Telkom consultants to this lady Carol Kovack and her supervisor to phone me back to rectify this problem but with no luck. These two people never phoned back.

                I would like to appeal to whoever can assist to switch my mother’s line back to the normal prepaid Waya-Waya she had before 17 October 2016.

                My mother being a pensioner has been inconvenienced in a very bad way. I will even courier this wireless phone back to your offices waiting your response.

                I would appreciate it if you can contact me on the following number: [protected].

                Thank you for your assistance.

                    Telkom SA8*ta data contract

                    I took out a 8*ta data contract in March 2012 for my son who was studying in Cape Town. I took out the contract at the Jeffreys Bay Telkom shop in the Fountains Mall.
                    After the 2 year contract ran out, I went to the same Telkom shop in the Fountains Mall in Jeffreys Bay to cancel the contract. I filled in the necessary cancellation forms and was told that the debit order will only go off once more and then be stopped. It did not happen and now, more than 2 years later, the debit order still goes off my bank account, although the service is not in use (because we do not have 8*ta reception in Jeffreys Bay). I have lodged several enquiries and complaints, even went on 'Hello Peter' - only to receive promises that they are looking into the matter. They are robbing me blind and I cannot stop them!

                        Telkom SA SOCtelkom fix line

                        On 14/11/2016 my line went dead and I reported it the same day ref 1218ctk141116. I made contact several times during the week and the only response I got was that it was assigned and someone will get back to me which no one did and no further commitment iro time. Then it was escalated ref 91417 and still no one contacted me. Eventually after more and more and more calls this week, I was told the line will be fixed before 25/11/2016 which also didn't happen and this was only after I logged a complaint via Hello Peter. I asked to talk to a manager and was told no one is available and yet no one called me. This is totally unacceptable - two weeks and NO service or even a call from Telkom to provide an update. I work from home and solely depend on my line so now I am already two working weeks without service and loose business daily needles to say the extra costs involved that I now had to incur to keep my business running. Can I please have my service which I pay for, costly if I may add so, for that is Treating Customers Fairly
