Recently China Mobile (中国移动) introduced a new way to charge up your account. Instead of calling up 13800138000 and wading through a voice tree (Note that I wouldn’t bother with the english version as it’s not really intelligible…) you can charge up (冲资) directly via SMS.
Just send an SMS containing CZ+your_card_number to 10086. For example:
If you don’t see a message in a few moments that says 操作已成功 (operation already successful) then you should verify that you entered the number correctly…
p>Now to remember how to check my account balance via SMS… Oh, and SMS banking!
