Apple Expands Mobile Phone Billing to Thailand and Chile

Apple has expanded mobile phone billing to additional countries and carriers, according to an updated support document on its website.


As of this week, the feature is now supported by Movistar in Chile, and dtac and AIS in Thailand. Elsewhere, Vodafone and O2 has been added to the list of supporting carriers in Netherlands and Czech Republic, respectively.

The payment method allows Apple customers to pay for iTunes Store content, App Store apps, iBooks, and Apple Music subscriptions without needing a debit or credit card, or even a bank account. Instead, purchases are added to a customer's mobile phone bill and paid off at the end of the month.

The payment method is already offered by select carriers in Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Hong Kong, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Norway, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.

Apple's support document explains how to set up mobile phone billing in the iTunes Store on both iPhone and iPad or Mac and PC.

Anyone else remember having this... TEN years ago on their Razr? Hoping this will come to Canada.. but it won’t.


Yes, and removing the carrier from the equation was one of the best things about the App store.

Why?


"I am sorry, but our system says you downloaded this program. We can't refund you if it says you downloaded it."
"Did you unsubscribe before you deleted it? Deleting the app doesn't remove the monthly charge."
"I don't have any notes here that you requested apps be blocked. I can lie and tell you I blocked it today but to verify it you would have to try and buy an app."
"I am sorry, but there are no refunds on downloads. As a ONE TIME COURTESY I will credit you 50% of the cost, but in the future you will be responsible for any downloads we charge you for."
