If I upgrade to this new plan with 500 extra megabytes, do I lose my previous plan add-ons? I had received a 500 MB holiday bonus when I signed up with public mobile initially. Thank you!


You won't lose add-ons when changing plans.

Re: $40 Plan Update

Hi Community, 

Am I understanding it that if someone is on the $40 plan, they now have to go back into their account and select "change plan" to select the new and improved $40 plan to become eligible to get the extra 500gb ?   

Please advise.

Thanks

Yes, you need to schedule plan change to the new $40 5GB plan on your next renewal date.  Don't change plan immediately because PM is prepaid service and there is no refund of the unused days of your current cycle.

Your understanding is correct.  This isn't an plan that has an "update". You need to consider this as a new plan and as such, need to change to it.

Re: $40 Plan Update

To keep all the $40 plans clear (hopefully), here is a summary  ...

 

$40 Plan VERSION 1 - $40 plan with 4.5 Gb and a 500 Mb AutoPay Bonus existed for at least a couple of years up until about September 29, 2020.

 

$40 Plan Version 2 - $40 plan with 4.0 Gb and a 500 Mb AutoPay Bonus from about Sept 29, 2020 until Nov 10, 2020.

 

$40 Plan Version 3 - $40 plan with 4.0 Gb and a 500 Mb Bonus and a 500 Mb AutoPay Bonus November 11, 2020 until present.

 

I dont think there is ultimately any difference between VERSION 1 and VERSION 3 except for the wording... is there? I guess the extra 500 Mb bonus may disappear from VERSION 3 again but not if you are already on that plan. 

 

Anyone on VERSION 2 SHOULD schedule a change to VERSION 3. But I’m not sure if there is anything to gain in changing from VERSION 1 to VERSION 3. If you are on VERSION 3 you wont lose the 500 Mb bonus if they remove it in the future for new customers. But I see no reason to update from VERSION 1 to VERSION 3. I see people asking here if they need to schedule an update to the New Plan (VERSION 3) but they generally aren’t indicating if they are currently on VERSION 1 or VERSION 2 of the plan. YES if on VERSION 2 but it was only offered for about 6 weeks so how many are actually on it?

 

Thoughts?....

The "Version 3" plan isn't advertised in that way. it's advertised as 4.5GB +500MB. I would say that it very likely has an identical plan code to "Version 1".  When looking at the plan history at the $40 price point, it has not always included those data amoutns for the past couple of years. At one point last year, the data amount was cut in half.

Re: $40 Plan Update

@computergeek541 

Now that you mention that other change in the $40 plan last year I think I may recall that as well. I recall the big change where they chopped out the $35 and $45 plans leaving just the $25, $40 & $50 plans, I think that was fairly early in 2019. When I signed up in Dec 2018 I started on the $30 plan that had 1/2 Gb with NO 500 Mb bonus for Autopay. Only the larger plans included that. Then they cut the price of the $30 plan to $25 and very soon after added the 500 Mb Autopay bonus on this plan. I sort of wish I had more closely recorded all the changes over my two years here! The slow but steady improvements in price and/or the amount of included data leave me hopefully of more improvements to come!
