Refill your Pay in Advance (Prepaid) account

T-Mobile offers many convenient ways to refill your prepaid account, such as using refill cards, credit or debit cards, or automatic renewal.


If you're on a plan with limited minutes, you can refill your account online, by phone, or by purchasing a refill card. We'll send you a free text message reminder when you get close to your expiration date.



Refill automatically

For your convenience, and depending on the type of prepaid plan you have, you can either set up an AutoPay (where your account is refilled every 30 days) or an Auto Refill (your account is refilled based on the frequency you choose). You’ll need a credit card, debit card, or your checking account information.
