Hallo. Can you please help me with the firmware for my Mobicel Retro device?

Best answer

Hey Tinotenda, We now have this ROM file uploaded online. Let us know should you have need for it. There is very little info on the hardware makeup of the Mobicel Retro and hence locating its ROM online (particularly on non-english sites as there isn't any linked to on English sites) is not being very easy. At this stage therefore, I will suggest you contact Mobicel's Customer Service center from here and see if they will not be willing to send you a link to a copy of the Mobicel Retro ROM. Otherwise, you will have to take it back to your retailer who will then quote you a price and have it booked for and mailed to Mobicel's service center for a software re-flash.

Yes we (will) do just that

Hot News (SASSA card expiring December 2017).

SASSA wish to put it on record that no beneficiary of social grants will be affected by this expiry date. SASSA is in a planning phase regarding the future payment of social grants once the contract with the current service provider CPS (Cash Paymaster Services) comes to an end in March 2018. As soon as final plans are in place beneficiaries will be informed about the updating process later on in the year. So there no need to run for a renewal. See SASSA payment cycle for December 2017 HERE.
