    hi, i think this is the right forum to post in!

    my boyfriend is at a different uni to me and is almost out of credit, and has practically no money but i have quite a bit spare...is it possible for me to top up his phone, from my phone? or would i have to do it from his phone? (which isn't really possible right now!)

    thanks

    If you have a debit card, I think you can, you type his number in...or, if you top it up from a cash point...Although, i'm not entirley sure

    You can do it at a cash machine that does mobile top ups, all you need is your card, to know what network he is on and then you are away!
    For a lot of providers you can do it online too.

    Cashpoint or phone up his network's top up line - they should have an external number as well as a speed dial.

    maybe she didn't want to text back, and you ruined her excuse.

    Buy a top-up voucher (From his networks shop in your town/city) and then give him the code...? It's amazing how no one has mentioned this.

    lol I love how you actually get defensive.

    it's a joke.

    but wtf would she text you back while you were on msn...that's pointless :confused:

    i overthink things far too much with her lol, cant help but get a lil defensive

    and like just generally text me back, she hasnt had credit for months now. obviously texting someone while chatting to them on msn would be a tad pointless
