Maybe that option does not work with pay as you go? I just use a credit card to buy the games so not 100% sure. You could try @winphonesupport on twitter to make sure.

i am on orange contract and i can purchase onto my phone bill but the minimum i can purchase is 3.99 upwards anything below that i have to use my card.

I can't help you but I have to ask where can you buy a Windows 7 from in the UK? thanks
