Default How to top up Three PAYG SIM from abroad - 21-07-2014, 22:35

The UK adopts a very rigid top up scheme for foreigners:
You either have to hold an UK-issued and -registered credit or debit card or buy top up cards in the country.

I want to keep my Three SIM alive from abroad and top up for a Three like home roaming country.

Is there a way besides some dubious online angencies charging about 20%? On I can't find vouchers anymore.

Wondering why the UK adopts such an approach, I was told because of credit card fraud. But they accept and refuse debit cards too. Where is the risk of preloaded debit cards like Neteller or Entropay?

May be anyone knows a way or a credit/debit card generally accessible that would work? What about a UK-issued "gift" prepaid Visa or Master?
