Found a tricky way to top up your Apple ID if you don’t have MTS or Beeline. No new sim needed

On the night of May 11-12, it became impossible to top up your Apple ID account to pay for subscriptions and purchases in the App Store through the mobile number of some operators.

Some of the colleagues were already about to immediately run for new SIM cards to activate them as a new payment method.

But there is an easier way. And you don’t need to run anywhere, the main thing is that you have a colleague, friend or relative with an MTS or Beeline SIM card at hand.

Ask him to buy and send you an iTunes gift card.

How to Buy and Send an iTunes Gift Card

So, you have a colleague, friend or relative with an iPhone who uses a Beeline or MTS mobile operator. Do not forget to first transfer to him the amount that you want to receive on your Apple ID account. The person will first put this money on his mobile account, and then he needs to do the following:

1. Go to the App Store on your iPhone and click on the profile picture in the upper right corner.

2. In the menu that appears, select the item “Send a gift card by e-mail”

3. In the “To” field, you need to enter your e-mail, which is linked to your Apple ID and select the desired replenishment amount

4. Next, you can select a design (any, it doesn’t matter), click “Next”

5. Check the correctness of the entered data, in particular your e-mail and that the amount is correct, click “Buy”

6. See a notification about a successful purchase and SMS that money has been debited from your mobile balance

That’s it, at this stage you can thank your assistant and go activate the gift card. To do this, go to the mailbox that was indicated when sending the card in the previous steps, find the letter with the code and click the “Activate now” button.

If your e-mail was specified, but your Apple ID was not linked to it, you need to copy the code from the letter and manually activate it by going to the App Store on your iPhone, clicking on the avatar in the upper right corner and selecting the “Redeem gift card or code.

Congratulations, you just topped up your Apple ID account. Now the subscription fee will be deducted from him until the money runs out. But you already know what to do and you can use the help of a friend an unlimited number of times.

Yes, you can get up, go to a communication salon and buy a new SIM card for yourself. But if this option is not to your liking, then the above method may well extend the time you use Apple services.

Well, as long as mobile operators beeline and MTS allow it.

Also, if you already have a second MTS or Beeline number, you can drive it in as a means of payment and the money will be debited from this number. Even if the iPhone itself has a SIM card from another operator.
