What Is Cell C WhatsApp Bundle?

According to Cell C, a usage limit applies. This means that once a customer exhausts the bundle he purchased, he will then be charged from his account of his current tariff plan. To avoid being charged from his account, he must buy another bundle.

Once customers purchase the Whatsapp bundle, they automatically unlock all in-app features, including sending and receiving texts, files, voice notes, viewing friends’ statues, videos, etc.

If a customer migrates to another package tariff plan, his WhatsApp bundle will be carried over to the new package or tariff plan if it is still within its validity period. It is important to note that the Cell C Whatsapp bundle is non-refundable once purchased.

However, you can contact Cell C customer care on 140 to cancel the bundle. WhatsApp bundles cannot be used for outside usage, such as the internet. A customer can choose to buy a WhatsApp bundle for someone else. Use the *147# code to buy each bundle and follow the prompts.
