    Refill by credit card online

    When you refill by credit card online by going to t-mobile.com then Login then click "Refill Account" then click "Credit/debit card" link. After you make the purchase, do you get any kind of receipt or confirmation number?

    IIRC I've read you only get a transaction reference number for online credit card purchases if you check the "if this is a gift" box on the anonymous buy-refills page, so that's the only way I've done it. Most recently in June of last year.

    http://www.t-mobile.com/PartnerServi...PrepaidRefills

    I only see auto refill option when I log into my account, which I don't know about and I think is relatively new. I've only used callingmart PINs when refilling from my account.

    Just out of curiosity, why would you refill at their website when you can pay 10% less for the exact same thing at Callinmart, people in this forum have used them thousands of times (me included) without any issues.

    So there's no way to know if your credit card transaction went through fine or not? Or will you receive a text message saying you refilled? If so how long does that usually take until you receive a text message?

    I just found out about this. Are these the two main websites everybody buys from? Or are there some other ones?
    http://www.callingmart.com/
    http://www.ephonecard.com/

    How do you get them for 10% less? It's 2% off right now and I found a coupon code online for another 5%.

    If I buy the refill from T-Mobile do they charge you tax?

    Those are the two best sites. However, there is no longer to be any 10% discount. Take a look through this sub-forum and you'll see a thread (not too many days old) discussing the reasons why: T-Mobile is cutting back on the discounts they give to the online retailers. Five percent is the best we're gonna get from here on out.

    There is no more sub-forums, do you mean the T-Mobile prepaid section of the forum? Do you have the thread link or remember what the title is so I can use the title name for a search? When did the 10% discounts stop?

    When ordering from callingmart.com what's the difference between "T-Mobile To Go Prepaid Wireless Airtime Minutes Refill" and "T-Mobile To Go RTR/Topup - Auto Load To Phone"? I have the prepaid pay as you go plan, which one do I buy?

    What, are you adverse to browsing the threads or something? Carpal tunnel in your mouse hand? It's the eighth thread down: http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...cently-Changed

    I consider "Howard Forums" the forum, and all these subsets (such the T-Mo Prepaid) sub-forums of it. I don't know if there's been any edict from on high announcing any strict definitions, but it's best not to get caught up in differences of semantics.

    I'm about to order from Callingmart, would you like me to put your email down as referral? If so you can PM me your email address.

    If I choose the PIN number way, will the PIN expire if not used?

    Thanks.

    Best Buy has 10% off coupons:
    http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...1#post14566611

    Does anyone know what happens when my account runs out of minutes? What happens when you try to make calls or send text messages?

    What if someone calls you? Does it go straight to voicemail for them?

    What if someone text messages you? Does it send on their phone but you just never receive the message?

    How are minutes calculated on the pay as you go plan? If I make a call that lasts 30sec does it round up to 1min?

    What about when you call voicemail, does it start using your minutes right after it connects? What if I dial voicemail, listen for 5sec, then hang up. Am I charged 1min?

    You're T-Mobile prepaid balance is too low to complete this call, you must renew your plan or refill your account to complete this call. Undelivered message, this message could not be sent.

    When unanswered, after 30 seconds; when busy, after reject/ignore; when unreachable, no delay.

    I have received a couple day-old messages but if you're unreachable all week then you will certainly lose them.

    I have had it both ways, #646# and #999# are your friend.

    Call from your landline if you can help it.

    Someone should really make a thread for FAQs and sticky it. The first thing I read when I sign up on a forum is the sticky threads.

    Some people say Callingmart PINs do not expire but Callingmart's website says 90 days. This is from their website:
    "Shelf Life: These T-Mobile To Go refill cards have a shelf life of 90 days. This means that you may wait up to 90 days from the date of purchase from us before loading it onto your prepaid phone. The actual airtime minute expiration will start only on the day that you load it on your phone."

    I read in one thread where someone kept their PIN for a long time and when they tried to use it, it was already activated. So I guess if you buy a $100 refill then use it right away.

    Does anyone know how often Callingmart has coupon codes? The last one just expired yesterday. Is it usually only once a month?
