Here’s a little gem for you:
I received a text message from my mobile phone provider advising me that as from June 1st, I would no longer be able to top up my phone at any ATM as this service was being withdrawn nationwide by all networks.
Now this posed a teensy weensy problem for me, as the alternatives were to use an app (which I haven’t got or want), top up online (hm, not happy about that using my bank card) go into one of their stores, or use an e-top up card.
We believe we had one of those when we purchased the phone almost 20 years ago, so obviously I haven’t got it now as I never used it, preferring to tap away at an ATM as and when necessary. I’ve always been happy with my PAYG package and never wanted to change, so I was even more pleased when we could purchase a new phone but keep my number by using my existing SIM chip.
Hubby went on-line and tried to arrange one by post but it was such a farce having to register and open an account etc etc, he gave up.
Luckily, there is a BIG store in Skeg where they have a mobile phone desk, so we went in today. The young lady couldn’t have been more helpful, and we were fascinated to watch her pushing all the buttons on my phone without looking at it as she explained she was doing it all the time and knew it off by heart.
I came out ten minutes later (five of those making general chit chat) with an e-top up card assigned to my phone and all I have to do is present it in any shop displaying the top up sign and pay accordingly.
And quite painless.
