Can I use prepaid credit to purchase mobile broadband data packs

Hi I recently bought a mobile broadband hotspot and wanted to add more data so a friend sent $10 through me2u and I was wondering if I could use this credit to buy another data pack as I cannot find an option to do so.

Thanks in advanced.

Unfortunately not. With the new data pass offer, sending credit to it via Me2U is not really worth it as aside from some services like Google Play carrier billing it gets used at $2/MB when you run out of data.

You would need to perform a recharge with 'real money' to get additional data I'm afraid.

Until recently it worked with $10 Me2U providing 1GB of data, however people abused this to a great extent and it was removed.
