Can't Top Up

I bought 2 mobile phones this week on Pay & Go as I wanted to move to O2. I activated my wife's no problem & put £10 on her account by means of my credit card. When I tried to activate my own the system won't accept my card. I have been on to the card company who say no demand was made by O2. My question is do I have to wait a few days between topping up?

No, you don't have to wait. Maybe it thinks the card is linked to your wife's phone so won't allow it?? You can use a cashpoint or top up voucher though in the meantime.
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion.

Some banks allow topping via Internet banking or also via an app.

Re: Can't Top Up

You are normally allowed to use one card to top up 2 mobile numbers. If you have ever topped up another O2 phone via your card then you would have to derigister that with customer service. Most banks now allow you to top up mobiles within their own banking apps or their online banking website.
