First of all, purchase a prepaid card of your relevant network. Usually, you can find such cards from various retail locations. Many companies even support online purchasing of the prepaid cards.
Look at the back of the card for the activation number. Almost every company use a silver strip to hide the code. If any part of the activation code is visible, ask the shopkeeper to replace it. Use a coin or your finger nail and scratch off the silver strip to expose the number.
You will find the entire procedure of loading a card right at the back of the card. It is pretty easy, as you just need to make a call to a given number. This call is absolutely free.
Each network has a different number in this regard. The number, however, can easily be identified with a phrase, such as ‘To Load Card’, ‘To Add Credit’, ‘To Add Balance’, ‘To Reload Call’, or a similar line.
Dial the activation code once you connect with the the computer-based operator at the other end. You may have to press 1 or Yes to confirm the code. The money will be added to your account quickly afterwards. Many phone companies ask the user to press # after dialing the activation code.
Carefully listen to the computerised system to see whether the card has successfully been loaded. Once you hear the confirmation, terminate the call.
Don’t forget to check your balance after terminating the call. You may also receive a text message from your network provider, confirming that the money has been added successfully.
