  1. They just never stop with the 8ta queries to a blog, do they? almost a year later failing to READ. Shouldn’t be that hard – If you missed school – i’m sure a local library which haven’t burned down yet could teach one the basics of reading – “start from the top.. maybe the first page.. ” *sigh* Guess not many people grew up with books.
    Have a nice day; and thank you blabla for the humorous comments.

    • Thanks Rian

      At least someone else sees the humour in the comments and replies to this post. And I’m glad that someone at least agrees that the failed readers deserve a little sarcasm from us in response to their silly requests.

      Happy weekend!

  2. ordered a phone en still waiting for delivery for a week now, bt now nolonger interested.

    • That declining interest issue seems to be happening a lot lately…

    • In fact, here’s another one we’ve received via our Contact form:

      Prefect. Not so perfect.

      • This request doesn’t even make sense??
        You want to charge your laptop with 8ta internet??
        WTF does that mean?

  3. Did you offer 8ta contracts phone’s? If yes. Contact me on this number 07x xxx xxx1..for terms and condition please you can email it to my email address

    • Whether 8.ta do offer “contracts phone’s” or not is entirely irrelevant here Samuel. Try contacting 8.ta directly and asking them maybe?
      Also, leaving your cell number on a public forum is probably not such a good idea…

  5. heita data _ solid as hell and s far i havent been cheated out of 1mb of data as is the case with mtn.

  6. And still we get them… Here’s another message received via our Contact Form earlier today:

    “From Petrus:
    since last friday waiting the phone to be derlived from RAM but till today if not derlived today cancel the order I don’t want it any more I will get the phone from other network.”

    Don’t know about 8.ta, but certainly for my last phone delivery I had to be present to sign for it myself, with ID and proof of residence in hand, and couldn’t get someone else to receive it on my behalf. It’s a RICA thing I assumed.
    Petrus, I hope you haven’t been sitting around waiting at your delivery address since last Friday in vain? Likewise, I hope you were there when the delivery dudes showed up, as they may have done already?
    Either way, I hope you get a phone eventually, whether from 8ta or another network.
    Oh, and in case you haven’t figured it out yet – The BlaBla Blog is not affiliated, linked, connected to, etc. 8ta in any way. Emailing us will not resolve your issues. It will however continue to amuse us.

  7. PLEASE 8.TA PEOPLE MY YOU SPEED-UP THE PROCES OF MY CONTRUCT PHONE ,IS NOW TWO WEEKS WAITING GOR IT TO BE DELIEVERED.

    • Way to hurt a guys’ feelings Elliot. Really.

      Seriously people.
      Does anyone bother to actually read anything anymore? Have we truly failed to communicate the simplest of information to you? Are we using a totally incomprehensible style of writing? Or is it that you want us to think you lack some fundamental cognitive skills?

  8. really nice network can we have a win a million rand competion

  9. New year, new attitude, same old dumb users?

    Heita, hau & eish my domrades.

  10. hi fellas please what ever u post make sure it is relevent to the 8ta issue n stop been irelevent

    • Oh the irony. The delicious, idiotic, deep-rooted irony. If only you knew Kwinda. If only.

  11. PLEASE HELP ME, I’M A RICA AGENT AND I WANT TO EXPAND MY BUSSINES BY DOING RICA AND DISTRIBUTION OF 8TA, WHAT CAN I DO?

    • Well Patrick the RICA Agent, the first thing that you could do is maybe
      CONTACT 8TA DIRECTLY!
      And then maybe focus on
      READING THINGS WITH A LITTLE MORE ATTENTION TOO.

      Glad to be of assistance.
