Upgrade Cell Phone Contract

When you’re about to upgrade or get a cell phone contract, it feels like an early birthday present to yourself! If you’ve never opened a contract or upgraded before, it may seem like a whole lot of admin and a lot more stressful than it seems. 

So if anyone knows what they’re talking about its Phil of www.phonefinder.co.za, and he’s kindly put together a list of things to consider before upgrading: 

"There are a few things to consider before upgrading”, says Phil: 

  • If you are changing SIM cards, you will have to provide proof of residence 
  • If you’re upgrading to a more expensive contract, you will have to provide proof of income 
  • There will also be a fee that you’ll have to pay to activate your SIM 
  • Lastly, upgrading your contract is entirely dependent on whether or not you have a good withstanding relationship with the provider.

Here’s what Phil wants you know about the different cell phone providers: 

MTN 
· By joining MTN, you take out a 24 month contract 
· From month 21, your contract becomes renewable 
· Upgrading on MTN can be done right here

Vodacom 
  • By joining Vodacom, you take out a 24 month contract 
  • From month 22, you can upgrade your contract 
  • To find out whether you are eligible for an upgrade as well as which plans or devices you could get, you would need to create or login to your Vodacom account
  • Upgrading on MTN can be done right here

Cell C 
  • By joining Cell C, you have a range of contracts running for either 6, 12, 18 or 24 months 
  • You are able to upgrade at the end of month 6 on a 6 month contract, the end of month 12 on a 12 month contract, the end of month 18 on a 18 month contract and the end of month 224 or a 24 month contract 
  • If you want to upgrade ASAP, Cell C also helps buy you out of your current contract.

  • From month 22, you can upgrade your contract 
  • To find out whether you are eligible for an upgrade as well as which plans or devices you could get, you would need to click on their Talk to Us section and get assistance.
