  1. Would like to know if it is ALSO possible to recharge ANOTHER MOBILE from my own registered mobile through sms, and how.

  2. wow.. Thats great.. But does the toll free no give option to select special recharge or topup while recharging?

  3. Something unexpected…..
    Really it is going to popular through Toll free NO.
    Thumbs up to PAYTM……………..


  4. Dear Sir,

    Thanking you Sir,

  5. It would be even more great if you can provide facility to rechrage any mobile through toll free no.Like first it will ask about the no. to be recharged then it will ask the amount to be recharged.
    Still good job keep it up.
    Plz unblock my facebook account to write on your wall/timeline.
    Profile link:

  6. Right now it’s sms to 9880001234:

    to recharge ONLY your own registered mobile.

    How about SOON making it:
    SMS to 9880001234:
    Just to recharge any mobile number THAT YOU WANT.

  7. Its good that you start recharge through sms but it is self recharge . We can not recharge other person number through these services. Try to start these type of services also.

    • agreed, if we could recharge any mobile with this feature.. that would be mind blowing 🙂

  8. Very Good service !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The no provided on the page is wrong….Correct this.

  9. i have applied for mnp and change to aircel but on doing toll free no recharge i am getting rechage to my default operater bsnl is there any special option for mnp customers to change operater

  12. it is very bad online recharge site because i recharged 2 or 3 times but i didn’t get my balance as well as deducted my balance in my bank account i complained but they didn’t refund my money.

    • I can’t accept this kind of remark for a remarkable service provider like Paytm. I am using the service since more than six months and done numberous recharges, but never faced the issue of money getting deducted and recharge not done.
      Even though it happens sometime due to high trafffic load for a particular service provider, the best thing is that the amount which is deducted from our bank/c.card account is stored in the form of Paytm Cash which we can use the next time we try.
      I rate 10/10 to their service. Hat’s off to Paytm team. I have already recommend Paytm service to all of my near & dear ones and they are very happy with the service quality.

      Thanks for introducing this new service, but please extend the option to recharge mobiles than the registered one as already requested by many.

      Good job!! KEEP IT UP.

    • my registered mob num is deactivated and it took my paytm cash also. this is cheating. now it says that my mob num is not registered.
      what the hell is this…..???

      • Hey Shwetank, We are really sorry mate, as it happened due to some technical issue. Good news is that we have reactivated your account now.

        You may again use this account hassle-free.

        Happy Recharging…!! 🙂

  13. Not interested.

    Now, if I can make a payment to a person, because the other person is not savvy enough to understand Net banking, that would be something.

  14. i did not get the recharge but money has dedcuted from the account ..what the hell is dis??

  15. Yaar very good service. which can recharge without net connectivity.

    Thanx cruisel time in busy days

  16. Hey paytm, please unblock my facebook page to write on your timeline/wall.

    and, we cant call the toll free number from AIRTEL numbers as it’s a invalid number from AIRTEL…

  17. Hello Paytm ,If possible,then plz add a one new process in your ‘Recharge On The Move’..
    **Please allow us also to recharge our Friends and other’s mobile number By dialing you Toll Free number 1800-1800-1234..
    This is our Humble Request..!!! Thank You..

    🙂 🙂

  18. Plz do provide an option to recharge other mobiles through Toll free number and SMS rather than recharging only to the registered mobile number..It would get an extraordinary response from the customers as they can recharge any mobile from their mobile…

  19. Picture Gallery | Hot Model Photoshoot | 1080p HD Wallpapers said on :

    Nice info….thanks for making technology, so useful.

  20. great service. i got instant messege of recharge and my reliance big tv strated working at once great.

  21. Dear PayTM mastermind,
    Why don’t you make paytm more exciting by giving users 1% discount on every recharge. ……It’s a suggestion.

    • To my knowledge, retailers earn Rs. 3.xx on a recharge of Rs. 100. One of my local retailer told me that. Don’t know if its exactly true!
      As Paytm’s network might also be functioning like a local retailer, they’d been earning a similar amount. And, If I’m right then it won’t be possible for them to give discounts to everyone. They incur server costs and other upkeep charges too.

      @Paytm: Please correct if I’m wrong 🙂

  22. i just love paytm , really paytm does instant recharge than all and reliable too…

  23. We must be able to recharge other Mobile/DTH/Data Card numbers also along with the registered Mobile Number in Paytm.
    The current feature is “Never Heard Of” a kind.AWESOME 😀

  24. this site is really good…even m using it..but d case is dat m not able to recharge of amount more than 10/-(aircel)… when i did recharge of 25/- (i recharge more than 5 times) ,d message shows dat d transaction is successful…but unluckily i havn’t got my those balance yet…
    i hav given complain to it…. but no response…..
    i want my those 25 +25+25+25 rupees back…

  25. SMS and call both option for recharging my mobile without internet connection are not working for my number. please check out the same.

  26. Tht z Awesome, i luved it……….Its a very gud site for all the human beings……10x…..

  27. Well done Paytm…..

    Like u..
    Believe u…
    Trust u….
    Paytm…. as my Partner……

  28. Solid………………………ur service is very good,………………no words to say……………

  30. Is It is possible to recharge to my friends mobile through my mobile having paytm cash in my account

  31. Awesome service!
    Keep it up guys 🙂
    ..waiting for a service to recharge any other* mobile number using own account+toll free no. 😀

  32. Its really a good service. I have a suggestion. Nowadays everyone is using more than one sim cards.It will be good if we can link more than one phone numbers with one login name, then I can recharge both my numbers using the paytm cash.

    I hope u will consider my sugggestion for improvement.

    Thanks ,
