Is your airtime vanishing into the void?

Have you ever loaded airtime just to find that 10 minutes later, you’ve got almost nothing left?


Or worse, have you received that dreaded cellphone bill at the end of the month and found a mysterious R1200.00 charge for some (quote of the day) or some junk content that you have never subscribed to?


If you said yes, or know someone who had this issue, read on:


Cell C, MTN, Telkom Mobile and Vodacom allows you to unsubscribe from these services.  Here’s how you do it:



Cell C

Dial *133*1# from your phone.
From this menu, you can block all existing and future content billing.


Dial *141*5# and select what premium content subscriptions you’d like to be unsubscribed from.

Telkom Mobile

Dial 183 and ask to be unsubscribed from any subscription services.


Send an sms with “STOP ALL” to 30333.

You will receive an sms notifying you of the result.
