“What is Mobile Recharge?”

Mobile Recharge has been known by a few names

At VIP we call it “Mobile Recharge”.

Its not just Airtime!

While most of the Mobile Recharge products offer pre-paid airtime top ups, thats not all there is. We offer bundles including data and SMS packages, internet access and even some utility bills can be paid.

We also offer top-ups for prepaid phones here in USA, such as MetroPCS, T-Mobile, Boost and Cricket.
