If you are brave enough to head down to the shops then you will be rewarded for your travels. It is really easy to buy smartphones and cheap mobiles when you have browsed all of the offers available.

Cellphone Contracts in South Africa
Contracts are a quick and easy way to stay in contact with your closest friends and family. In South Africa many people are moving away from fixed landlines and are choosing the flexibility that comes with using a cell phone for their everyday connectivity.
There are different service providers to choose from including Vodacom, MTN, Virgin Mobile and Cell C which are often available at ordinary shops. Wherever you are in South Africa, you can stay in touch with people across the country for relatively low prices, especially if you use the same service provider as the person you are calling. So whether you live in Durban, Johannesburg or are lucky enough to live in Cape Town, it’s time to get connected.
The reason why many people choose the option of pre-paid phones rather than cell phone contracts is because it is easier to monitor your spending using a pre-paid phone. With a contract you can sometimes accumulate huge bills which you have to pay at the end of the month, especially if you are far away from your loved ones or prone to spending hours on the phone.
However, with the various contracts available from Cell C, Virgin Mobile, MTN and Vodacom there are definitely positive elements of contracts as well. For example, most contracts come with ‘free minutes’ which allow you to talk for free over the weekends or in the evenings. There is obviously a limit to these, but you can still enjoy some free calls which aren’t possible with prepaid.
Another reason to choose the contract option is the fact that you can get free phones with some contracts. This means that you can have the flashiest smartphone in South Africa, without paying a huge amount for it. These contract specials are available across Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town. So forget about the pain of having to top up your phone in shops or running out of credit, and choose cell phone contracts.
