While the recommend retail price for the iPhone is still just a recommendation Vodacom have taken it a little to far this time.The recommend retail price for an iPhone 5c 16GB is R8 499, Vodacom are charging R15 099, that’s a R6 400 rip off.

The scariest part of all of this is that insurance companies use this price to calculate your premium if you insure your iPhone. You could be paying 50% more that you should be to insure your iPhone. We suggest you check with your insure and ensure they are valuing your iPhone at the recommended retail price and not these insane prices from Vodacom.
