This business of data with an expiry date. How can it have a sell by date? It is not something that goes off after a few weeks. Surely once you've paid for it, it belongs to you until you've used it. Another way to part you with as much money as possible?

Depends on what data you purchased. Contact list?

Data bundle from Vodacom. Is there another option from the same vendor that does not expire? Please tell. Why do they not make this clear in the options list?

One should check very carefully. I used to have a similar service from Cell C: buy a bundle of data and use it. One year, I bought a large amount, because the salesman assured me that it would not expire. And then, 11 months later I got an automated notice out of the blue that my data would expire within a month. I was less than amused, because I had so much left I couldn't really use it in a month. I went to some lengths to download music and movies and stuff, but still did not manage to use nearly all of it.

Of course, by then the salesman that lied to me was no longer there anymore and the others just shrugged.

This was partly why I eventually left them: their service is hugely expensive and sucks.

Nowadays I use Telkom (yes, I know, I know, I'm dealing with the devil) and get a far more reliable connection at a fraction of what Cell C charged me.

This Telkom - is it for mobile use or fixed line? My ADSL at home is with Telkom but I move around a lot. In the past, I used my phone to get email and do the bank, but now the wife bought me a tablet and now I find all sort of excuses to go online. :P
