I need assistance with how to link my accounts to my profile.  I keep on receiving the following:

 

We could not identify you as a valid contact for this service on this account.

 

I do not get much assistance from the online facility.

Re: How to link your accounts

I have exactly the same problem. I sent request for help to 10210@telcom.co.za, and got an email in reply (yesterday) which was empty except for quoting my email.

Hi, I had the exact same problem. Just send an email to : obill@telkom.co.za with your telkom account number and online username. 

They will send you the correct number to link the account with. Regards, Rita

Re: How to link your accounts

Hi,

I've been trying to link the account in order to Cancel my landline.

 

Sent an e-mail to obill@telkom.co.za, got a response. But when they asked to send a copy of the document so they could fix the profile error they stopped talking to me.

 

Still no answer despite the other 2 e-mails asking if everything as Ok.

I don't know to whom I must talk to link the account.

I am moving out and won't need the landline anymore.

 

Help!

Re: How to link your accounts

Same problem! It seems the only way to cancel a Telkom contract is to do it on-line, but that requires my account linked to my profile, but when I try, it fails. When I emailed Telkom (using the email account they gave me for this problem), I simply get a response telling me to link the account myself on-line!
From all the complaints about this on social media, I am beginning to think Telkom may be acting unlawfully by deliberately making it difficult for customers to cancel. They don't need to do anything to achieve this, they just need to do nothing to fix the problem, and make no channel available for resolving it. Every month delayed is an extra month of fees for Telkom (even when, as in my case, I have no service at all because it stopped working over 10 days ago and no one has fixed it yet)
