CONTEST NOW CLOSED: It’s Ditch New Year’s Resolution Day, But We Still Believe in You!

Public Mobile

Hey Community, 


It’s the last week of January and you know what that means. All the people who said they’re going to hit the gym, eat healthier, and read more books are sliding back into their old ways. We understand. Keeping a resolution for a whole year feels as difficult as going a whole day without checking your phone. But we don’t want you to give up! So here are five awesome tips to help you keep going strong on those resolutions:


  • Recruit A Friend: Get a bud and hold each other accountable. It’s easier to work towards a goal when someone is keeping tabs on you. Don’t let them down!
  • Embrace the Slip-Up: The plan was to do yoga three times a week, but life got in the way and you skipped a couple days. That doesn’t mean you should throw your yoga goals off a cliff. Accept that you messed up and get back in the studio ASAP. 
  • Make Specific Goals: Redefine your goals by putting numbers on them. “I want to save more money,” should be changed to, “I want to save $100 a month.” And by the way, you can save big time by getting your phone plan down to $0 through our rewards program.   Learn more about it here.
  • Treat Yo Self: Did you swear off sweets for this year? Once you have gone two months without eating dessert you deserve a nice big slice of guilt-free chocolate cake. Rewarding yourself can be the fuel that pushes you to keep moving forward
  • .Just Do One Thing: Having multiple resolutions can be overwhelming. You’re asking yourself to change your whole lifestyle overnight. If that’s too hard, pick one resolution and put all your focus and energy into that.

Use those tips and we know you can do it!  Comment below by 12:00pm ET on February 3 and tell us your New Year’s resolution and how you plan to keep it and we’ll randomly select three winners to receive a $50 Amazon eGiftcard to help you keep your resolution. Go back and read tip number two if your resolution already went out the window. Stay strong everybody! Contest runs January 27 to February 3, 2020. Read Contest Rules before entering.

What is the easiest way to keep a resolution? Don't make one. Works every time!  😉

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

To reduce wireless bill !

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

My new year resolution is to tbe the best father possible for my upcoming son who should arrive on march 5!

My new years resolution is to keep eating healthier and so far so good! 

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Drink more water!

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

I have had the same resolution for the last 5 years.

I was 39 years old, overweight and getting real comfortable being a middle age man (especially after my kids were born). On New Year day in 2015 I woke up late in the morning (I had a dinner party the night before) and I saw myself in the mirror…I don’t know what came over me but the thought of me turning 40 and look like the person in the mirror didn’t sit well in the back of my mind. So I joined a gym before the week ended. I didn’t see much change for about 3 month but I kept it going.....6 month later I lost about 30 lbs and can fit into some of my old jeans when I was in my 20s… Now I wear size 31 waist jeans and in the best shape of my life.


You can only change if you truly want to because nothing worth having come easy.

btw...Don't sweat the small things Smiley Happy


Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

My resolution was to switch all the family cell phones over to Public Mobile before the New Year. I am happy to announce that this has been done!!!!

I'm posting here only for the sake of submitting my entry. If a new year's resolution is really needed, mine is to not make them because plans always change and resolutions are very often broken.  Good luck to everyone for this contest.

Deputy Mayor / Adjoint au Maire

My New Year's resolution is to not make one and keeping this resolution is effortless lol

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

My resolution was to enjoy every moment of life, and not let the little things bug/stress me out as much. Tip #1 is definitely right. I got my whole family and close friends involved!

Deputy Mayor / Adjoint au Maire

Mine is that my son @gblackma would get off his butt and get one😁.

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

My resolution is to get more friends to join PM. One of the brothers upstairs reminds me to get lottery tickets, and win.

A good catch! My new years resolution is to reduce typos on the Community haha. 

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

I'm not really the one for new years resolutions, but I will try my best to be kinder to others and to myself. 

Retired Oracle / Oracle Retraité

I don't make any New Year resolution and have nothing to ditch.


Mayor / Maire

My resolution? I want to get a few more friends to join Public Mobile.

So far, it's been an uphill battle lol.

Model Citizen / Citoyen Modèle

mine is to cut negative energy in my life, if something or someone is draining on me, they are out!

Mayor / Maire

My New Year’s resolution is to become better everyday than I was a day before by imroving my skills and making new connections with people.

Mayor / Maire

My resolution is to start buying lottery tickets at a luckier store.  😂

Ditto the 1st two posts...... My New Year's Resolution - "don't make a New Year's Resolution", and so far I've had no problem whatsoever in keeping my resolution, and I plan to keep it.that way..... shouldn't be a problem.


@Tiana_V, in the last line of the post it states the contest running until October 3rd you may want to fix that error or are you checking to see if everyone is still on their resolutions that far into the year!!!lol

Model Citizen / Citoyen Modèle

Just try to stay on the right side of the grass!!


I don't make new years resolutions, stopped that practice long ago.  No point in revisiting delusions of grandeur every year.  I hope this doesn't disqualify me from this contest.

Mayor / Maire

I did, ditched them altogether. Never keep them. Why lie to myself.  So don't make any. LOL.
