GeneralSilly question - anyone here on TMobile in the UK? Pin

Herself managed to break her phone just before Crimble - and since she only uses it once in a blue moon for emergencies (and it's normally flat by then anyway) I got her a £10 cheapy clamshell from ASDA on TMobile PAYG.
It's a tiny Samsung, has a four week battery life, won't make calls when she stuffs it in her pocket and receives calls fine.

But...try as I might, I can't seem to get any money onto it. I've found three different ways via t'interwebs, all of which fail at the beginning or just after entering my card info, tried 150 on the phone which failed after the card info with a "system down" message, tried two different cash points (and can't even find the instructions to top up there) and the only way left is to shell out money in advance on a top up in the supermarket which may work (or not, I haven't tried yet) or return it for a refund...

It is possible that I have become too unskilled to be able to give people money...

So - anyone on it? How do you top the stupid object up? Or have TMobile gone bust and I hadn't noticed?
Never underestimate the power of stupid things in large numbers
