How to refill T-Mobile Tak Tak from the USA

I have a Poland phone number from T-Mobile (Tak Tak) which I use when I travel to Poland. I have a substantial balance but it will expire before I return to Poland so I want to add funds from the USA to keep the number. I've tried to use the T-Mobile.pl site to add funds but I have to have a Poland bank account because there is no way to add a regular credit / debit card, only bank transfers. :(

Is there a way to add funds from another country if you don't have a bank account in Poland? Why is it so hard?

If you have someone trusted in Poland they may buy the card in shop an send the number in SMS or mail

Yes, this could work but it complicates things. They must trust me to send the money (how?) and I must trust them to fill my phone. It would be so much easier to just punch in my credit card and be billed like in the USA. I wouldn't mind paying a transaction fee but it's just not an option, only bank transfers from polish banks are accepted. Is this some kind of law?

Try this I just did it (from the US) and it worked: mobilerecharge.

I received a text from T-Mobile Tak Tak right away that my account has been recharged even though the website says "Order Status Pending".

My phone works, hope it works for you also!

Select Poland, choose provider, add your credit card info and Polish phone number and you're set to go. I'm currently using both my US and Polish number (in the US) and they work fine.

Excellent, thank you! I'll try out mobile recharge and see how it works. (Fingers crossed)
