Well, I have come across the perfect solution for your phone recharge needs (and some of your shopping and utility bill payment needs). And I'll share it with you in a most kindergarten way, even a computer illiterate that managed to find this post will find this a cupcake.
The near miracle site that provides us this service is QuickTeller Just click on the link I provided and you will be presented with the page that looks like this
So I'll click on the MTN Direct Top-up link and the page below shows up
If your card is Verve (FirstBank, Skye & Oceanic ATM cards), select Verve but if it is MasterCard (all GTB ATM cards) select MasterCard. If your card is VISA (UBA ATM cards), I can't tell which option will be appropraite.
Enter your card number, expiry date and punch in the PIN number. Don't forget to enter the 3 digits number at the back of your card as the Card Verification Value (CVV2). Click on pay when you are sure you've provided the correct details.
Wait a few seconds for your transaction to be processed and a notification/receipt page will come up.
Voila! You have successfully recharged your phone right from the comfort of (the front of) your computer.
