Vodacom exorbitant data accounts
I have crazy data bills every month. I thought it was because I downgraded my contract and only get 250megs a month. I bought an extra 750megs and still my data bill was high. I then decided that wifi was the way to go. I got wifi at home, I have wifi at work. My data account is over R2000 this month.! Low and behold...I got a call from Vodacom to sell me a contact for a mobile wifi device, which I signed up for. I now even have wifi in my car! I turn my mobile data off. Then I got a message one day to say my data is depleted, even though I hardly use it. My mobile wifi device which is supposed to give me 2gigs of data a month is also depleted! I only use data for IM Facebook and twitter and only to receive messages in the car. How the heck do I manage to run out of data when I have wifi everywhere! I logged a call with Vodacom who have been investigating for a week already with no word.
