Thanks for the info!

I bought VodaCom SIM with 1GB data from Woolworths in CPT airport, for
The resigter ppl of Woolworths asked me to activate the SIM at VodaCom
shop, so went to the shop nearby, however VodaCom staffs are angry at
me because I didn't buy from them, and said they can activate SIM card
bought from them.
I don't want to spend too much time on this, so I spend another 50Rand
to get the same type SIM card on hand, just let them activate and
charge the 1GB plan for me.

- If you want to buy from Woolworths, remember to insist to activate
the SIM immediately.
- I have one spare SIM, if anyone need it, I can give it for free.
