I am starting this thread in relation to one about batteries. I am very much certain that in introducing an amount to a pre-paid cellphones or mobiles when it is on zero balance, the verb used is reload. However, I am not sure if the use of the word recharge cellphone is also correct. Most of the time, I hear in advertisements load or reload cellphones. I just don't know it this again is one of those AE-BE differences. To me, recharge a cellphone/mobile sound illiterate. Recharging refers to the battery. Correct me if I am mistaken. This is sure way of knowing if it is really acceptable to use recharge a cellphone referring to the account balance on pre-paid basis. Or probably, it is really a matter of AE-BE difference. And the list gets longer. Thanks in advance.
