This is a transcript of a chat I had to copy out of the window, because there is no automatic sending as stated above!! This was the second chat I requested, first one was lost. It is now 2 months since I made the original request, and for a bit I thought it had gone through. Now I see that the LandLine email invoices are using the same mail alias as the Mobile email invoices.
I would have never looked at these before, as my mobile was on debit order.
How the hell do I get this cancelled. I want absolutely nothing else from this company.

Definetly the most useless service provider with NO respect for their customers and definetly no sense of business etiquete!!! Because of the useless or lack thereof service, I again tried to get in contact with Telkom in order to know what the penalty would be should I cancel my contract now. After requesting a callback numerous times, which never happened, "SHOCK"! I kept phoning them untill I had the courage and time to stay on the line for 16 minutes before my call was answered! The person who answered was very incompetent and after another 15 minutes he explained that I can only know what my penalty will be by following the online cancelation process. I did exactly that, and now it seems I've cancelled my contract, still don't know what the penalty is... and I cant "uncancel"! Bloody useless!!

I'll concede that during April, I did not give this company notice of my cancellation.
I've to date paid for April and May's service, as per my bill. Will likely soon new invoice for another month.

Sorry to see this happening. We’re also customers in the community so unfortunately can’t help much re. service ( no Telkom support agents here) .
Sounds like your cancellation process was likely only triggered this month per their notice requirements. Media articles this month report that Telkom’s online cancellation facility was fixed and fully implemented at end April 18 .
Probably worth a follow up to login to Telkom portal here & follow the steps - they then send you a cancellation ref. :-
Then post a detailed follow up message with your cancellation ref to a Telkom social media support team :-
Hope this helps, please let us know what happens to help others waiting.
