Has anyone rented a cellular phone in South Africa

I have seen the kiosks at airports where one can rent a cellular phone while on vacation in SA. Has anyone done this and can they provide any details as to costs etc. I think you can buy calling cards which are inserted into the phone.
Any information will be appreciated.

I have rented from Travelcell before and they are quite good -- the benefit is that they will fedex you the phone before you go to your respective country, adn therefore you have the number to give to family/friends back home.

The Vodashop Renta Fone kiosk is situated at Cape Town International
Arrivals Terminal.
Ratesaily rental rate R9.95
Daily insurance rate R3.95
Call rates:
Local calls R2.70 per minute
Calls to USA R15.00 per minute
Calls to UK : R14.00 per minute
If you would like an email address contact for them you can email me directly.
If you reserve a phone in advance they will send you the tel no. ahead of time.
Even if you take insurance and the phone gets lost or stolen (which is very common in SA) there is a big deductable - somewhere around $US80.00
