I have no minutes left on my prepaid cell phone. I called my husband on my last minute, to tell him to try and call me.. He said that he was going to try and put $20.00 on my cell phone so that I can have some minutes. Well my cell phone is at home with me, with no minutes on it.. He has his cell phone with him. He may be in town or out of town. Is there a way that he is able to put minutes on my cell phone without calling me to give me this information?

hi cream, If there's a way that you can text him on his cellphone from your email then do so, I think you just put the phone number in the space to where you want to send the message. That way he can text you back with the code number to enter in your phone to put minutes in. I don't think you can put minutes on your phone unless you have that code? Otherwise if you call your cellphone provider which is usually free to do then try that. Good luck

try putting his cellphone number in to where you want to send the message to and include the area code first then depending on your hubby's provider you would have to put like this... (10digitnumber)@tmomail.net (t-mobile) or (10digitnumber)@vtext.com (verizon) or (10digitnumber@mobile.mycingular.com (AT&T)

He is really a good husband.I think you must have a happy life with him. You shouldn't think too much of it.The only think you should do is believe that he can.

With all the prepaid cellphones I have seen you have to add minutes from the handset that you are adding the minutes onto. That is why I would never go with dumb prepaid cellphones as the minutes would eat away like crazy and it is not worth it in the long run. There would be no way for him to contact you with the information as you have no minutes on your phone as well. Why doesn't he call you on a landline?

My landline phone was accidentally disconnected.. It was a mistake with the payment provider.

cellphone load in our country are very common you can buy it even in a very small store. i am selling cellphone loads that is why no problem for cellphone loads. i received free cellphone loads every month from my electronic loads provider. i used this for personal and sometimes for my business. if cellphone loads is available near you so buy it so that you can still call your husband specially during emergency.

I am surehe will put the minutes on your phone as he alluded to, but maybe he is not in an area where he can do it. Just a liitle patience will do the trick.Hang in there!

He would have to put the information on the phone for you if he can do that. Does the pre paid work better for you then just having a service plan?

It is actually possible for your husband to send you minutes to your cell phone. In my city there's a thing called electronic voucher for prepaid cell phone. It's where you buy minutes for a cell phone number and the minutes will be send directly to the cell phone with the correct number.

Hi cream97! Here in our country, that can be done or is possible. Whenever, I am out of minutes or load on my cell phone, my husband usually send some for me. We call it here "pasaload" meaning pass a load or he would buy it to a local store and send it to my phone. I just don't know how it is done in your country. Take Care and God Bless!

You can use a debit or credit card and call the 1-800 number, you don't have to have him do it.

I do it all the time, put minutes into a cell phone; this is a cool service and can be a lifesaver at times when there are no loading stations or no cards available as when you are in a bus. (I was going to say in a car, but I guess it's a no-no to drive and talk on the cell phone).

I think you can go buy another phone card at the store which is easy because many stores carry it. I am not familiar with prepaid, but iI heard that if you want to do it over the phone, you need to call in with a credit card. Have you checked if the company has an online site where you can quickly reload? if yes then you can do that without your husband being in town. good luck.

In my country it is not a big problem. Anyone can refill a cell phone from anywhere. You just need the cell phone number and obviously few bulks. For me I quite often run short of balance and immediately seek for assistance from my friend. He really does this job with utmost sincerity without any failure.
