Italian term or phrase: ricarica per cellulari
ciao a tutti,
vorrei sapere come tradurreste in inglese la famosa ricarica per cellulari di vari operatori, so che in USA o UK non esiste questa formula e che quando vengono in italia solitamente chiedono "I'd like to buy some minutes for my mobile", ma come si potrebbe tradurre RICARICA?

grazie mille

Explanation:
This is the term normally used, I believe. Also "pay as you go".

Yeah, "pre-paid" should work, too.
