If you have a cell phone and live in one of a select number of countries, you now have the option to purchase Star Wars: The Old Republic
Cartel Coins with just a few button presses. BioWare
announced that it's partnered up with BOKU
to offer SMS billing for its premium currency.
There are two important caveats to this, however. The first is that it applies only to those living in Germany, France, Taiwan, South Korea, Brazil, Turkey, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, Hungary, Spain, Australia, and The Netherlands. The second is that the one and only option is to buy 450 Cartel Coins at a time through this method.
At least now some players have the option to hang up on their mothers because there's a currency emergency and a spiffy new outfit needs to be purchased.
