Hi guys and gals.

My apologies if this has been covered, but my search hasn't found the answer.

 

I'm considering swapping my kids onto GG (have the sims at the ready and awaiting PAC codes), but just wanted to confirm the top-up options available.  The current provider has a system whereby my debit card is assigned against each number and I can top-up directly via a voice prompted phone call, i.e., I can basically top-up from anywhere.  Is there a similar system available on GG or is the top-up only possible online or via voucher?

 

Further more, should I top-up a phone by (say) £10, is that credit available to buy a Goodybag immediately and how quickly does the bundle become active against the phone.

 

Thanks in advance and apologies again should this be a repeat question.

There is also the altruistic top up, where you can do a one off top up (to a different account) without having to log onto each account - could be useful to some people

top up is by voucher (o2 or giffgaff) or debit/credit card online. Or you can set auto top up which will renew by £10 whenever you fall below £3 (charged to card)

 

top ups are immediately available to buy a goodybag (or you can buy a goodybag directly by card) Smiley Happy

Thanks for the replies guys.  I'd seen all these options but I'd hoped a method similar to that which I currently use was available too, as it helps control the spend and provides for instant top-up if if I'm no where near a PC etc.  I'd considered the auto-topup, but I need to monitor/control each account.

Cheers all for your time.
