Prepaid credit card looks similar to a credit or debit card with a card number, brand and signature field on it. A prepaid credit card is issued by a financial institution and performs the functions of a credit card except that a certain amount needs to be preloaded in account. The card holder can use the card for purchasing items till the preloaded amount gets finished. Prepaid credit card limits the borrowing of funds from the financial institution after preloaded amount is finished. The issuing of prepaid credit card does not require bank account of the card holder. Instead the amount is stored in a temporary bank account till the amount is fully used. This factor is expected to boost the adoption of prepaid credit card for non bank account customers in coming years.

< img alt=" pre paid credit score card" src="" size=" 400"/ > Image by< a href= "" > Graham Ballantyne We travelled south today partially to grab a couple of AT&T Micro-SIM cards for our 3G iPads. The procedure for getting information in the states on a Canadian iPad is somewhat simple:

1. Go to the United States. With any luck you have a much better justification to inform the border guard than “” going to the AT&T shop””
. 2. Go to an AT&T shop. I do not know “if” authorized retailers” “have Micro-SIMs; we mosted likely to the

3. Exchange bland, funny-looking cash for a Micro-SIM card. They’re each and also there’s no in-store paperwork. 4. Eliminate your Canadian SIM from your iPad and put the AT&T card.
Find out how to save the Canadian SIM without losing it. 5. Most likely to Settings → Cellular Information. Transform data on and also tap shown Account. 6. Full the type and also select your data strategy. Accept the terms and also await a message ahead up claiming that&data is energetic.

7. Utilize your information. Go back to Canada. Try to turn up much better excuse to inform the boundary guard than “we went to the AT&T shop”. There’s a somewhat major caveat now, one that I hope AT&T locates a means to repair: you have to make use of an US bank card number and also a United States address in order to purchase an information strategy. I do not know why they have this limitation; the iPad is opened, so it’s entirely practical to presume that non-residents will certainly want to acquire data for their iPads while in the US. There’s a simple but bothersome workaround if you don’t have US card:

1. Acquisition a pre-paid Visa, MasterCard or Amex present card. I selected one up at Walgreens. Ensure it has the Visa/MC/Amex logo on it. They all have “”activation costs””; the quantity relies on the value of the card however the ones in the shelf at Walgreens were all -5.
2. Utilize your hotel address, or other legitimate United States postal address. I made use of the address of the AT&T shop where we acquired the Micro-SIMs, which was helpfully published on the receipt (and also mis-spelled):
4291 Overview Meridian Roadway, Bellingham, WA 98226.

The instructions on the Visa card claimed that it might occupy to 24 hrs for funds to be available on the card, but it functioned within a half-hour of purchase. The initial attempt really did not go through; either I fat-fingered the number or it objected to me putting my genuine name as the cardholder name. When I tried once more with “” A GIFT FOR YOU” “(which shows up on the card) as the name, it went via A-OK.

It shows up that you could take care of the setups for the account from a wifi connection as long as the SIM is placed into the iPad; this is good due to the fact that you can terminate the reoccuring repayment once you obtain house as well as are no more linked to AT&T. I have wifi on and also mobile data turned off right currently as well as can take care of the account from the tool.

#105 Suica rechargeable IO (イオ) card for JR East
prepaid credit card
Image by Nemo’s great uncle
This non-contact (RFID) IC card ("smart card") holds up to ¥20,000 in electronic money ("e-cash") for JR East train lines [Japanese], kiosks, and other 駅中(ekinaka) facilities inside JR East stations.

"Super Urban Intelligent Card" (Suica, see Wikipedia: Japanese, English (old), Deutsch) is a multi-application platform (based on Sony’s Felica [English] technology*) for JR commuter passes, JR railway tickets, e-cash, building access, and other appliations.

* Other Felica applications include JR West’s ICOCA(イコカ) cards, Bit Wallet’s Edy cards, Kansai’s PiTaPa(ピタパ) card’s, Hong Kong’s Octopus (八達通) cards…

As of October 26, 2004, sales hit 10 million users—which is not all that many when one considers that, as of April 1, 2005, JR East not longer accepts their old prepaid "IO" or "Orange" cards. I had to fork over a ¥500 deposit for this card.

NTT DoCoMo has also come on board, with cell phones incorporating the commuter pass version of the IC. KDDI au, Japan’s #2 cellular operator, will follow in January 2006.

The latest news is that coverage with extend to bus companies in the Kantō Plain in 2006.

There are two ways to "charge" this card: (1) cash at a JR East ticket machine or (2) JR East branded View credit card at a VIEW ALTTE ATM corner or JR East ticket machine with a VIEW sticker.


First the cards were only for JR ticket machines. Next, kiosks and convenience stores inside stations started taking them. Now a Family Mart convenience store hundreds of meters from the nearest JR station it accepts both Suica and the older Quo prepaid cards.
