Refill your Pay in Advance (Prepaid) account

    T-Mobile offers many convenient ways to refill your prepaid account.


    If you're on a plan with limited minutes, you can refill your account online, by text, by phone, or by purchasing a refill card. And don't worry, 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 Auto-Pay (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. Automated refills can be set up through one of the following ways:



    Refill online

    Refill by text

    If your profile is set up with the Refill Center, you can send a text message to the Refill Center to fund your account.

    To refill by text, follow these steps:

    1. Start a new text message containing the refill amount and last four digits of the credit card or debit card number. For example, to add $25 to an account with 2353 as the last four digits of the credit card number, enter the following:
      25 2353
    2. Send the text message to 7777.


    Refills are applied within a few minutes. If you don't receive a confirmation text message, call the T-Mobile Refill Center by dialing *ADD (*233) on your phone’s keypad. Or call 1-877-720-5195.
