My very first cell phone that I ever owned was a second hand Nokia 1618. It was literally the size of a brick! I still had to buy a Vodacom starter pack that cost R150.00! 15 Years ago R150 was a lot of money…
How things have changed. Now for R1 you can get a starter pack… Not to mention how far Nokia have come with their phones!
Take the Nokia Lumia 532 for example. It’s slick, great looking and trendy. Compared to other smart phones in the market, Nokia is right up there with them in terms of design, usability and the availability of apps.
Microsoft recently announced that the Nokia Lumia 532 Dual SIM is available in South Africa exclusively to Cell C. If you buy the phone upfront, it will cost you R1699. Or you can get it on a Smartchat 1GB contract starting at R149 per month for 24 months.
