PORTLAND, Oregon – MobilityWire® – June 30, 2010
Prepaid.com, an online service for recharging the airtime of prepaid mobile phones, now allows anyone, anywhere in the world, to purchase minutes and other prepaid services for any of the more than 70 million Mexican prepaid mobile phone users. With the addition of Telcel, Mexico’s largest mobile service provider, Prepaid.com now supports every prepaid cellular phone in the nation. For people living outside of Mexico, the service, found at www.prepaid.com, gives them the peace of mind that they can stay in contact by gifting prepaid minutes to their family and friends in Mexico.
Prepaid.com is extremely straightforward and fast. People go to www.prepaid.com and make a purchase with any major credit or debit card in a few simple and secure steps. Airtime is added to the mobile phone immediately and an SMS text message is sent alerting the recipient to the new minutes. No PINs or refill cards are required, there are no enrollment costs, surcharges or hidden fees, and Prepaid.com eliminates the hassle of having to visit stores during business hours.
As one customer explained, “Recharging my wife’s phone in Mexico is easy and quick. It took only a few minutes to send her minutes from Los Angeles! I use the service regularly since it makes adding time to my wife’s phone so much easier and I tell other people about it.”
Prepaid.com can currently benefit all of Mexico’s prepaid mobile phone users thanks to Prepaid.com’s direct connection to the country’s four largest mobile brands: Telcel, Movistar, Iusacell and Unefón. According to recent data from the research firm Wireless Intelligence, close to 90 percent of mobile phone users in Mexico are on prepaid plans, and the number is growing. With over 73 percent of mobile customers worldwide using prepaid for their mobile service, Prepaid.com recognizes the potential for gifting mobile airtime between countries and is actively working to expand its online prepaid refill service to other mobile providers worldwide.
“Reliable and ongoing communication is vital for maintaining connections with family and friends,” states Chris Parsons, chief marketing officer of Prepaid.com’s parent company, Vesta Corporation. “The goal of Prepaid.com is to ensure that prepaid phone subscribers can stay connected, regardless of where they live.”
In celebration of its launch, Prepaid.com will return a portion of proceeds from each purchase made at www.prepaid.com to the Latino community through the Hispanic College Fund, a nonprofit organization helping Hispanic high school and college students achieve higher education, pursue professional careers, and give back to the community. Prepaid.com invites all purchasers of prepaid mobile phone minutes for Mexican cell phones to help them reach their goal of providing two scholarships for US Hispanic citizens of Mexican origin in their pursuit of higher education this fall. Visit www.prepaid.com and purchase mobile airtime today.
