Recharging Telma cards
Credit for pre-paid Telma accounts are recharded using scratch cards which are sold everywhere in the country. Using these codes on the scratch cards, yours or anyone's Telma number can also be reacharged via Telma's website at https://www.telma.net/recharge/web/recharge/
Using Telma's website, when a recharge action succeeded the website's response will be La ligne xxx a été rechargée de Ar. Telma vous remercie.
If failed, when entering the code of for example a previously used scratch card, a generic error message will be technical operation failed – UCIP Error.
Note that numbers for pre-paid Telma accounts expire unless used or recharged within a 100-day period. Once expired, and unless the number used has been taken over by a new subscriber, the original number may be restored by completing the relevant form at one of Telma's main sales offices.
The TELMA Foundation, created in 2008, was set up by the TELMA Group to help Madagascar with its social and environmental challenges. The organisation became recognised as a public service in 2011 and was awarded Best Humanitarian Actor in Madagascar in 2013 by the UN.
