Do you ever use the phrasal verb "top up" in association with "mobile/cell phone"?

If so, would you please give me some examples of how to use this "association" correctly/properly?

Thank you.

@paok1970,
I would never say that, but I'm not British.

@paok1970,
"Top off" means to fill a fuel tank to the top. I've never heard that phrase, but it might refer to fully recharging the battery.

@paok1970,
I've heard of "top off" meaning to fill up something that is partially full all the way to the top.

I've heard of 'Top Up' as a way of suggesting a salary increase. It is British.

@paok1970,
If you had a pre-paid mobile and the credit level was getting low you would top it up by buying more credit.
That's in Australia, I don't know about anywhere else.

Top up is the standard term used over here. Even the vouchers are called that.

@cherrie,
I’ve heard it used here in USA, though not often, in the same way (re adding money to prepaid account) as Izzy and Cherrie used.
