Orange, Vodafone and Cosmote mobile credit transfer
In Romania the prepaid customers of Orange, Vodafone and Cosmote can send mobile credits within the each network. The Transfer of money between two numbers allows people who share their mobile credits with each other. This could be the case when somebody is recharging their phone and distributes the mobile credit within his family. The network operators still strictly regulate the transfer of mobile credits in Romania. They impose limits on how much and how many times you can send mobile credits to other prepaid phones. Nevertheless this useful feature is free of any charge for the customer.
Mobile money transfer also plays a vital role in remittance. People who live and work abroad can send their family and friends mobile credit, for instance via Fonmoney. The people who receive the top up can then distribute it again to their friends. This saves the sender extra charges for the top up. For instance could a Romanian diaspora who lives in Italy top up his wives phone, who still lives in Romania, and she could distribute the mobile credits within the family, for free and the husband would only have to top up one number instead of many.
