T-Mobile has announced a partnership with electronic payments provider Vesta, officially rolling out their “T-Mobile Refill” Android app. The new app lets pay-as-you-go customers “refill” their prepaid credit directly through their Android device.
Launched via Google Play a few weeks before CTIA, T-Mobile Refill allows T-Mobile customers to initiate one-time refills, or sign up for auto refills by customizing their payment amounts, frequency and start dates.
“With the number of smartphones on prepaid plans increasing dramatically, prepaid customers want a fast and easy way to refill their service so they can stay connected,” says Mike Katz, vice president, prepaid marketing, T-Mobile USA. “The T-Mobile Refill application offers a convenient way for customers to quickly refill their monthly or pay as you go service, ensuring they have consistent access to data and our 4G network.”
On top of one-time refills and auto refill enrollments, T-Mobile Refill also allows customers to gift payments to other T-Mobile prepaid customers. Gift recipient names and numbers can be saved to allow for repeat gifting.
