Recharge mobile from UK - can I use any card ?

When I come to recharge my mobile in the UK end of this year, do I have to use an Australian credit card or can I use my UK card ?

Thank you.

Hi @AliQ , this really depends on the setup with the UK provider, best to check with them directly, it's not uncommon for carriers to only accept payment cards issued in the country that they offer services.

Normally it has to be an Australian issued card from memory.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
