Want to save on your contract bill? A SIM-only contract may be your answer!

SIM-only deals

A SIM-only deal offers a package of minutes, texts and mobile data for a monthly cost, much the same as a traditional mobile phone contract. The difference, however, is that you BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device) and don’t get a new handset; you get the SIM… only!

So, why should you opt for a SIM-only contract?

Well firstly, SIM-only deals tend to be cheaper, as with traditional contracts you’re paying a premium each month within your agreement to pay off the actual cost of your phone PLUS interest. So, with a SIM-only deal (i.e. without getting a new phone) you’ll save money each month. On top of the savings, going SIM-only means that you can focus on getting the best deal to suit your usage needs – rather than just dealing with the tariffs available to ensure you get the handset you want.

 

The Advantages of SIM-Only

SIM-only deals are fast becoming one of the most popular options when getting a new phone contract. Compared to traditional mobile phone contracts, SIM-only deals have many advantages.

SIM-only deals tend to be cheaper. New handsets are expensive, and as you’re not forking out for a handset with your contract, networks don’t need to charge you as much for their services, which brings your monthly payments down.

Another advantage of going SIM-only is that it’s easier to pass the credit check. If you’ve ever been turned down for a phone contract in the past, opting for a SIM-only deal might be the best solution for getting the phone and tariff that you want. Again, because mobile phone networks aren’t ‘renting’ you a mobile phone handset, it not only brings down the price of your contract, but it also makes you a low-risk candidate.

If you have a Dual-SIM phone, splitting your Voice and Data SIM’s is probably one of the most effective ways of saving money. By getting a SIM-Only Data SIM, you can take advantage of the benefits of massively reduced data prices while still keeping your voice line costs down.

 

How does SIM-only work?

SIM-only deals are simple: select the right package of minutes, texts and data that suits your needs, insert the SIM card into your phone, and you’re good to go.

Users also have one of two options when going for a SIM-only deal. Content with your existing handset? Because you’re only paying for a SIM card, you can pop your new SIM into your current mobile and immediately start saving the pennies! Alternatively, you can purchase the phone of your choice SIM-free, which is great for users who find it tricky getting past the credit check.

And did you know that you can still keep your phone number with a SIM-only contract, even if you switch networks? Just ask your assistant to port your existing cellphone number from your current mobile provider.

Whether you are looking for Data, Top Up, or Voice Contracts, we have SIM-only deals to suit everyone: https://cellucity.co.za/contract-deals/sim-only-contracts/

BUBBLEGUM is back: The child-friendly educational tablet

Not being a parent, I have noticed that when I am around my nephews or visiting friends with kids, one of the items kids are fascinated with is their parents’ mobile phones! More and more I see parents using their iPads and Tablets to distract kids whilst they sit at a restaurant and get some quiet time for themselves. The drawback is that dropping an iPad can set you back around R6K if that screen gets broken, and as we all know in the hands of kids a tablet is bound to take a fall. It is also difficult to ensure the kids are not doing things they shouldn’t on your tablet and accessing photos and apps which are not meant for their eyes.

Enter the Bubblegum tablet, a great solution developed locally and supporting English, Afrikaans, Xhosa and Zulu! It is a Colourful, fun and affordable 7-inch Android Tablet, pre-loaded with educational software, games and storybooks.

A great feature is the parent-child mode which allows parents to fully customise functionality for their children. Aimed at children between the ages of 2 and 9, the Bubblegum tablet features; storybooks, maths games, reading games, memory games and a host of other educational games to make learning fun.

To make the package even sweeter it comes with a bundle option, called the Bubblegum Suitcase which gives you a complete pack of accessories to ensure that your child can get the maximum use from the tablet. This bundle includes an over the ear headset, car seat mount, car charger and a protective silicone cover and all this for only R1799! For our online customers, we can also exclusively offer you this great tablet on contract from R189 per month including the Bubblegum Junior Tablet Combo and R218 WiFi Router* – Exclusive to Cellucity Online!

For our older learners (Grade 6-12) we can now offer the Bubblegum B1 Teen Tab which includes a free wireless keyboard cover. A fantastic looking 8-inch tablet with a rose gold finish, the B1 Teen Tab comes preloaded with great educational apps including Maths and Science Marketing, Paper Video (A great app offering past exam papers and step by step video lessons on questions and concepts) as well as Snapplify (specialized digital learning) and Via Afrika. Important to note though is that you may still have to purchase certain products via the apps. Along with the Junior Bubblegum Tablet Combo, we can also offer the B1 Teen Tab exclusively online for R1699 on prepaid or on contract from R179 per month including an R218 Router* – Exclusive to Cellucity Online!

Check them both out here https://bit.ly/2IzoCx3

When it comes to internets speeds, there can be little denying that Fibre is King. We live in a time where Instant gratification has become the new norm and a slow internet service something that increases the stress levels, heart rate and blood pressure. Let’s be honest, South Africa is well behind many countries around the globe and even in Africa.

tabletBUT, we are catching up – and fast. All the big internet providers are investing heavily in laying fibre across the country with most cities being covered and rollout to the suburbs, complexes and gated communities well under way.

Entertainer Voucher 2017

If I lived in the United States I would be the ideal candidate for the reality show Extreme Couponing. For real! There is nothing quite like getting a great deal. Enter the Entertainer in my life. After a struggle two years ago my inner coupon queen won the argument and I have been an avid user of the entertainer system ever since.

So what is it?

It’s real simple, specific to Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and Pretoria, it is a booklet (or App) full of great 2 for 1 specials. It really couldn’t be easier. No calculations or guessing games, when you buy one you get one free. Valid any day of the week, any time. I found this really refreshing as similar deals normally come with all sorts of restrictions on time and day, taking the fun out of the whole experience.The entertainer cape town

Not limited to restaurants alone there are also vouchers for Attractions, Health and Beauty and Hotels. So why not go have that manicure or stay that extra night in luxury? And not forgetting everyday life there are Entertainer Vouchers for repairs on car dings, dog grooming and gym memberships to name a few.

Ok, and how does it work?

Essentially you will receive three vouchers per participating partner. How you use these are up to you. You could either (for example) dine out three times with a guest or have six of you go out for one night. When it comes time to pay simply present the voucher and your bill will be amended.

Now here is the clincher – This is now third year using the Entertainer and I have not once had a bad experience. Every participating store has been super jacked up and I have never had to explain or struggler. This is the reason why I will keep going back.

With a maximum possible saving of R1.5 million, research has shown that the average consumer saves up to R3800 per year. To be fair you will need to consciously use these vouchers to receive maximum savings. However, from my experience I have found that after three meals I have made my money back and more.

I think one of the best things that has come out of the Entertainer for me is that I have got to explore and discover places in Cape Town that I never knew existed! From brewery tastings, sailing trips, running tours and chocolate tasting the possibilities are endless. And for those of you who are a bit more outgoing why not try some pole dancing classes. Even though it is limited to participating partners I really did not find this a problem at all as there is so much variety. Available for purchase from Cellucity I highly recommend this product whether it be for yourself or as a gift. Trust me, this is the real deal, and the deals work!

Apple Doctor

Crash, bang, smash, sigh! Your eyes are shut tight, every little wrinkle pronounced. You hold your breath and slowly pry one eye open to look down at the inevitable. I don’t know why we do this, we already know when we open our eyes what we are going to see. The screen of our pride and joy, shattered. Admit it, you (like myself) have followed this script above at some point – probably more than once.

Vodacom starts offering free Facebook access

Johannesburg – Mobile network Vodacom won’t bill data-usage for a free basic version of Facebook, joining the likes of Cell C in offering zero-rated social networks.

Once signed up to the service, Vodacom customers can update their Facebook status and comment on posts even when they do not have data.

Should users wish to view pictures or videos, they can switch from the free version to data mode to access the full Facebook service.

To use Facebook Flex customers can log on to Facebook.com or dial *111*32#.

Nyimpini Mabunda, chief officer of Vodacom’s consumer business unit, said that Vodacom’s Siyakha initiative is an important part of the mobile network’s effort to ensure digital inclusion for all its customers.

“Network operators like ourselves have a role to play in reducing the digital divide, particularly between those in urban and rural areas,” he said.

“In all our efforts we are mindful of the immense pressures that consumers face which are largely associated with the cost to communicate” he added.

“The popularity and the extensive use of social media services such as Facebook as a means of communication has made it a necessity rather than a luxury,” Mabunda said.

Vodacom told Fin24 that it plans to expand the offering of Siyakha in the near future.

In 2015, Cell C announced that its users would be able to access Facebook for free through Free Basics.

Since then the company expanded their offering allowing for Facebook Messenger usage and access to websites such as Health24, Wikipedia, Careers24, Gumtree, News24 and SuperSport.
