Most though don't feel the need to send the correction via private message but simply correct you on the thread.


@darlicious , I have no idea what the issue you have against me.  I correct you in the thread and you think I have something against you, I send you a private message so you could make a correction without others knowing and you post about that in a passive aggressive manner.  I honestly don't know how to help you become more knowledgeable on your posts about PM.  You seem to take offense anyway it is done.  

Here is the private message I sent just so everyone can see

 

In your post to Sea Mare you mentioned to "@" in the send to bar.  It isn't required in the private message section you just need the name.  I didn't want to post publicly as you think I am just picking on you.  I correct everyone I see making errors and appreciate the time you are putting in here.  I just want to make sure all the information provided is accurate as the Community is only as good as the information provided.

You can just buy a Sim card at an available retailer and then activate online and get the sale in time!

Good day Computergeek541,

 It's to bad Public mobile does not have a better set up for giving a 48 hour promo without giving you time to use it. These promo are good for people that live in a city where everything is available. Would you suggest that when I get my sim card I should wait till black Friday to join Public mobil.

 

Thank you


When the promo is for this short of period of time, it's mostly limited to in-store and online activations if you arlready have a sim card.  As you already know, there are other ways, but if you know you're going to join soon, it might not be a bad idea to have a sim card ready ahread of time.  There have been in-store only promotions before, and unfortunately, keeping a sim card around in that case wouldn't help. However, sometimes, there are also online actvation only promos.

Maybe, in more western time zones, but in more eastern time zones, who's still open?

@ShawnC13 

The very first time you corrected me when I was a mere neophyte on the community I did take offense to how you corrected me. As I had said I thought the way you came across was intimidating and that users especially new ones would be put off by your manner and may choose not to contribute especially if they had confidence or self esteem issues. The community is supposed to be inclusive and as an oracle in a "power" position the more common users not only look up to oracles, seek guidance and mentorship but we also expect you to set a good example that includes the way you communicate and in my case how, when and where you correct us for our minor or major mistakes in giving advice on the community. Seeing as I do spend an inordinant amount of time on here I do read and follow a high percentage of posts and threads. I do purposely avoid comment on your contributions unless they are directed at me. You do occasionally correct other users about equal to the amount of times you have corrected me. Given the overall mistakes made by users on a daily basis you are exceptionally good at noticing mine. Not all of them mind you. When they are pointed out by other members I thank them, compliment them, sometimes make a joke (usually at my own expense) edit my post correcting the error and tag the user to be aware of my error and supplying the correct information and tagging the user that supplied it. None of these users have ever expressed "that I have something against them" or have called me passive aggressive. Way back when...you first called me passive aggressive I made the effort to look up the definition and do a little research to see if I was really acting in that manner. After realizing shortly after our first exchange that we are very different people and accepting we would probably never get along (thank goodness we don't work together). I took the following advice to heart and have tried to implement it :

How to be kind and assertive:

1. Understand assertiveness...

2. Keep your communication style in line.

3. Understand and accept differences.

4. Speak simply and directly.

5. Exercise the power of "I".

6. Stay calm.

7. Set boundaries.

Now I thought I was doing a good job of implementing this by not being aggressive or passive aggressive but still standing up for myself and doing it in a public arena rather than private as you have so often chosen to do. If you hadnt noticed after our first round i do not respond you via private message. Not that i am saying this to you...and perhaps as man you have not experienced this....but as most women have experienced harassment in many types and forms it almost always happens in private. So I by no means am accusing you of this but for both of our protection I have kept the conversation in public and free to be viewed, judged and commented on by anyone who wishes to. If you feel I am still being passive aggressive I simply have to accept that is your opinion and you are entitled to it. I would prefer you kept it to yourself but I have no control over that either. I have apologised to you both publicly and privately in the past to no avail so there is no point it wasting any more time on that if you cannot accept it. So I will leave you with some time worn advice that I'm sure everyone has heard. " If you don't have anything nice to say...say nothing at all."

Or is that passive aggressive as well?

How often are these Flash Sales offered?  I ordered my sim card yesterday but will not get it in time to take advantage of this flash sale. I am willing to hold onto the sim card until there is another opportunity to take advantage of the bonus data.

@Grant-Cell-315  The next flash sale is likely black Friday but you can sign up for deal alerts on the plans page.

But flash sales vary quite a bit. They are Not always bonus add-on data. In the past year I have seen new customer deals of:

-$10/month credits for the first 6 or first 3 months.

-Second Month free by credits, usually mislabelled "First Month Free".

-Bonus data add-on of 1, 2 or 3 Gb.

-Free SIM card 

 

There have also been "Referal Bonus" which can be stacked with the above Credits when both perks overlap:

-Double the $10 for new customer align with $10 for the referrer as well.

-$25 for each person instead of just $10 for new referred customer.

 

i am sure I missed some other promos with variations to the above credits.
