Yes maybe so, but then the whole point with paypal would be lost.

No. wrong Users are looking for a way to maintain a German SIM card. To keep it alive without being in the country, you need to do some activity from time to time, at least once or twice a year. Cards of some German providers, you need to top up too.

German SIM cards don't last forever not using them. Some users don't want to buy a new card all the time when coming to Germany. It's inconvenient and extra cost and time to do it.

So, how can you top up a German SIM card (without a German payment system)?
- > You can buy vouchers in Germany before and redeem them from abroad, but this is quite uncomfortable and need some action in advance.
- > You can go to Lebara or Ortel mobile. The only providers to be topped up online by credit card. But some (non-German) cards may not work as well.

After all, if you consider the PayPal method (via prelado.de) so "pointless", what is your solution: How do you top up a German SIM card from abroad. It's easy to say "nah, what's the point" without showing a better way.

Further to my original post, in October 2014, I was able to use paypal, associated with a Canadian Visa card, to make a 15 euro recharge via prelado. However, I had to wait approximately 1 week before I could make a 2nd recharge with paypal.
