    Abstract: The instant invention is an apparatus and method of prepaying for cellular phone time without having to leave a vehicle. A national/international retail or food chain with drive-thru windows will host activation boxes. A customer will have bought an approved cellular phone with a limited number of prepaid minutes and an activation card. The customer will call the customer service number on the activation card to activate the cellular phone. Whenever the customer desires additional minutes, the customer simply presents their activation card along with any other purchases they may have to a cashier at the drive-thru window at any location with an activation box. The cashier swipes the activation card through the activation box, inputs the number of minutes purchased, and rings the amount into the register. This information, i.e. the customer's cellular phone identification and minutes purchased, are transmitted to an activation center.
