FNB Cell C Deal:

The FNB deal for the Samsung Galaxy S4 is only valid until 30 June 2013 and also offers:

  • 1 GB AlwaysON Wi-fi connectivity for 24 months
  • 1 Samsung Hub Voucher (R300)
  • 35% discount on Samsung Galaxy S4 phone cover (optional accessory – recommended to protect the beauty (=

The normal Cell C Straight Up 100 and 200 are both topped up to 1GB of data, instead of their usual 100 MB and 200MB, which is awesome!
