I'm sure it was possible within the last few years to top up a mobile phone using a credit/debit card without actually logging into the Vodafone website. Apparently not any more.

I'm based in Aussie now and wanted to add some money to a friends account in NZ but it all seems too hard now.

Have I missed the link on the website?
What's going on at Vodafone?
Don't they want more revenue?

Not sure what it's like now but I used to top up my Vodafone cell phone with a credit card. But you have to assign your credit card to that cell phone before hand. That then means you can't top up someone else's phone with your credit card because it hasn't been assigned to it.

You might be able to do it if your friend gave you their login information for Vodafone's website?

Was this a service that was available and then taken down, or was it never there?
