According to this and this we now have to register our sim cards. Now don’t get me wrong. I understand why it is necessary to ensure that you have details of people buying sim cards. I’ve been victim of a stalker for such a long time, and because he keeps using prepaid sim cards he bought for 99c there is nothing anybody can do about it, so seriously, I get it.
I even understand the fact that current prepaid users should come into a Vodacom outlet to register their sim card. What I don’t understand though, is why on earth current vodacom users who are on contract need to come in and register their sim cards. You’re kidding me right?? I mean, when i applied for the contract I had to give you a copy of my ID, a utility bill as proof of residence, my full names(which is silly since you already have a copy of my ID) and a whole bunch of other things. Now why on earth would I need to come into a Vodacom outlet to give you copies of documents and a list of information you’ve already got?
