If it’s already on your phone, then you can do a ME2U as follows: *128*[1876-Recipient's Phone number]*[25 to 1000 dollars]# I say “cellphone” as I’m yet to upgrade to the smartphones that FLOW is currently marketing as part of their Christmas Promotion as detailed in Flow Jamaica Christmas 2016 Promotion. The problem? Reading those small itty-bitty numbers where the “8” sometimes look like “0” and the other numbers can look like ot...
