Get Started

With the press of a few buttons, you can talk to anyone from anywhere in the world using your cellphone. To do this, you need to add minutes to your phone from one of many possible sources. 

You can get these minutes from prepaid phones, regular mobile carriers, calling cards, and other options. Try any of these options to add money or airtime to your cellphone if you want to make a call.

Several cellular companies also offer packages for talk time. They take a fixed package fee or charge separately to add minutes to your cellular device. 

You can also call using the balance in your service provider's account, but it is better to opt for a package because it is better value for money.

You can subscribe to these packages either online through the mobile app or use USSD codes that let you subscribe to packages offline as well.

Adding minutes online

You can recharge your phone online by visiting your service provider's website or mobile app and adding money to your balance. This can then be used to add airtime or minutes to your credit or automatically charge by the provider if you are making a call. Providers such as Tracfone and Verizon offer this service, but only to their customers. Boss Revolution can let you top up airtime on any number all over the world through their website.
