You could refer back to More is Merrier is back: Free gifts for all! - Community (publicmobile.ca).

 

You could check out Public Mobile's AI customer service assistant here: Get Help (publicmobile.ca)

 

 

 

 

And then finally, make certain you are dialling the number correctly with the proper international calling prefixes, country codes etc.
