I've used a pre-paid Visa card to pay my bill, but haven't done so with a Visa debit card. Let's use this for an example... To pay a bill using a pre-paid Visa card, simply call MTS at (204) 225-5687, press 4 for billing inquires. If you're wishing to pay the Home Phone services bill press 2.. enter your Home Phone number (The phone number you're inquiring, whatever phone number that's connected to the bill you're paying), press 3 to make a credit card payment.. and then follow the prompts from there.

Hey Kurtis,

When it comes to Visa debits or prepaid Visas, the general rule is that we don't accept them as a form of payment through MyAccount or otherwise. Of course, we have seen exceptions to the rule from time to time (as mentioned above) more often than not, it will not allow you to proceed with payment using one of these methods.

If you're looking to make a payment you can certainly do so online through your financial institution using your account number, same with telebanking, you're also able to send cheques through the mail with the detachable part of your bill.

Hope this helps clear things up!

Alright no problem, I was hoping to pay my bill before my service is interrupted and continue until it's more convienent to port out, but I guess that won't be possible seeing as there is no instant payment options for anyone without a bank issued credit card.

Guess I'll be going and porting my numbers and cancelling my services tomorrow.
