After my contract ended yesterday and the prepaid conversion went through, this morning I popped into an FNB branch (for the first time since I opened my account three years ago) to pick up my renewed cheque card and to obtain two prepaid FNB Connect sims.
The consultant was very excited that I wanted to port – apparently, I’m the first customer to have asked for the sims at that branch, in the 5 months since the network has launched. I asked if that meant I’d get a prize.
The process was very quick, so now I’m just waiting for the port to go through. I’ll be porting the SO tomorrow, so in about two weeks time I can give a more detailed report on how things are going.
