A few days ago I just used the As phone card from Telkomsel to facilitate communication between members of my family. Just for your information, As is one of the trademarks for the cellular phone card in my country, Indonesia. It began when my mother suggested me to use the Telkomsel provider, in addition Mentari from Indosat that I have been using since year of 2000. My mother suggested the reason so, because of only me who has not been using Telkomsel provider in our family. Previously only me and my brother who have been using Indosat’s Mentari. But lately, my brother finally got to use the provider Telkomsel also.
Finally, like or not, I had to use two mobile phones. This is something that I actually avoid all the time. Let me to be honest, I’m most bothered about having bring two mobile phones when traveling in my pocket. But, in order to meet my mother wishes, finally I was using Telkomsel provider. After a discussion with my mother a few minutes and after some consideration what card shoul I use, I decided to use As phone card, the same card that had been used by my mother.
The time has come today. I had to refill the pulse for that As phone card. I used to refill my Mentari by using Internet Banking Internet Banking BCA. Internet Banking is indeed really helped me to refill the pulse for my phone card that I have been using until now, without having to go out from my house or my office in order to buy the pulse from the store or from ATM (Automatic Teller Machine). Since it was the first time I refilled the pulse for this As phone card, moreover in Voucher Type selection there is no As option in there, made me a little bit confused for a while.
Just for your information only, in the choice of Voucher Type in the Internet Banking, there are only Sympathy, XL VOUCHER, Mentari, IM3, Smartfren, STARTONE PREPAID, TELKOM FLEXI TRENDY, 3 PREPAID, and AXIS. I has also tried to search via Google in case anyone has ever shared the articles regarding the experiences refill the pulse for As phone card through KlikBCA, but none satisfy my needs.
Suddenly, my programming logic that I have been using at my work is walking by, plus a little reckless and try, LoL … I chose Simpati option, and the lowest amount of the pulse, IDR 25,000 (hehe, another economics method goes by, with the hope that even if it fails somehow, the money that would be gone was not too large). Until the end of the last step all the process I followed, roughly about 3 seconds later, suddenly there was a sound of the message tone came from my phone ringing. After I checked, the happy and shock feeling mix ended up being the one when reading the SMS from TELKOMSEL provided as follows: “Thank you to recharge with SN 41000140561331 worth 25000. Using Internet 7days only Rp5rb call *363*5000# from your cell phone”. Finally I managed to refill the pulse.
Well, I shared this experience, in addition to help me in the future if somehow I forget about my experience today, and hopefully also useful for for those of you who are using As phone card for the very first time, and want to refill the pulse via Internet Banking BCA. For other Internet Banking, I have not tried it, yet. So, if you have the experiences with other Internet Banking, please, do not hesitate to share your experience here by leaving your comment below this article. Thanks!
