I stopped buying from them because of the annoying 10 naira they use to collect on their own.

100 = 110
200 = 210
etc

What about convenience, buying through banks or VTU offers me convenience cos I don't need to hit the road every time I want my phone recharged.

Every business survives through innovation and adaption to changing times but not self pity.

Recharge card sellers are the ones who should upgrade. I won't come and be stressing myself because i want to buy recharge card. The last time i bought recharge card physically was about 8 months ago.

Dumb guy! How can you be discouraging innovation, progress and convenience? In the developed nations, many companies have had to go out of business as a result of new innovative companies.

Where's Kodak and Agfa today when we can all use our cell phones to take pix?

He should have also taken a danfo bus to encourage the drivers and conductors to keep them in business instead of driving a personal vehicle.

Foolish mentality!

Why do you people do this?

"Got" takes as much effort as "gat"? Why intentionally misspell a word?

I'm guilty of this. And the guy I normally buy credits from raised this issue with me. But talking of convenience , I just decided to collect his number. He sends me on request and we reconcile when we meet, usually on my way to work.
