What are the Vodacom internet settings for Mobicel? We have been getting that question from some of our readers over the past few weeks. Mobicel offers some of the cheapest phones in South Africa. A lot of them are in use on Vodacom. Usually what happens is that when you insert your Vodacom SIM into a new phone, the device automatically receives all the required settings.
