Re: FLASH SALE! Get a SIM + your next 30 days of service for $0 in-store!

I want to sign up under this weekend’s promo, but can’t find out how, i.e. where. There’s a The Mobile Shop nearby and still open for a bit but told manager is away &  unreachable and the “very new” employee doesn’t have any idea if they’re a ‘participating location’.

Real Canadian Superstore

3185 Grandview Hwy, Vancouver

I’m PST so was hopeful but looks like I’m SOL for contacting someone this evening. Or anyone monitoring here who can help, rain check or something? Pretty Please?

Your question is answered in the first post by Alan (a Public Mobile employee).

 

"Participating retailers include:

  • Walmart
  • London Drugs
  • The Mobile Shop
  • WOW! mobile boutique
  • K-Mobile
  • Select Koodo Authorized Dealers"

 

There are no rain checks for promotions.  So sign up today if you want to take advantage of it.  Or, this promotion MIGHT come back on another weekend.

 

The 30 freee days of service is for the second complete set of 30 days, so you do need to pay for the plan.

 

The credit for the second 30 days is taken care of by Public Mobile and gets added by them to your account, so I wouldn't worry too much about if the employee knows about it.  I can't say for sure if the employee needs to type in some type of promotional code or not.  But, keep your receipts and everything and follow Public Mobile's rules for this promotion and you should be good.  Worst case, you prove to the Public Mobile employees (the moderators) that you followed the terms fo the promotion and they would credit you accordingly.

 

The only thing that might get iffy is if the employee doesn't know about the promotion, he or she won't know not to charge for the sim card.  Once again, keep your sales receipts to prove to Public Mobile that you were incorrectly charged for it.

 

Public Mobile does have a on-goiong promotion where if you tell them when you sign up that someone refered you.  If you type in the phone number of the person who refered you, you get a $10 credit added to your account a few days later.    You would still have to pay for the $10 for the sim card in store (if the employee insists on it), but you'll be compensated by the $10 account credit.

You should go to other store like London Drug etc to sign up.  You have couple of hours in BC to activate your plan.  Good luck.  If you cannot find a store will give you a free SIM card for in-store activation, just pay the $10 SIM card and activate a plan in store tonight.  Then, send a private message to moderator to get the $10 SIM credit added to your account.

 

Good luck.  Just ask if you have more question.

Re: FLASH SALE! Get a SIM + your next 30 days of service for $0 in-store!

I always do! But will atempt to be succinct:

 

Do you have any info, like simply, do all The Mobile Shop locations have the ability to sign one up for Public Mobile?

Also, any confirmed success stories using dual standby, with a Data-only SIM 1 , and phone/SMS on Public Mobile in SIM 2?

 

My though is: if it’s just a $10 risk why not see how well it works.
I only have a SIP # now which is great on my analogue phone via an ATA, but not so great on my smartphone. Checked my IMEI already at ‘get started’ which said something like ‘will likely work’.

All The Mobile Shop locations should be able to sign you up.  They're all using the same computerized system.

 

As for dual sim card set ups, all Public Mobile voice services (phone calls) go through the 3g network, while data can go through either the 3g or LTE network.  Public Mobile does not have an 2g network.  The reason for this mentioning this has to do with the fact that some dual sim phones only allow you to use 3g networks from one of the sim card slots.

The Mobile Shop is one of the store which can activate a PM plan for you.  If you a PC Optimum collector, you may be able to redeem points at The Mobile Shop.  I am not sure whether you can redeem points to pay for PM plan.  I only redeemed points to buy PM SIM cards.

 

For tonight, you goal should be get a plan activated with a phone number provided by PM.  After testing PM service for a few days, if your like the PM service before porting your VoIP number to PM.  Porting a number from VoIP number will take up to 1 week.

Re: FLASH SALE! Get a SIM + your next 30 days of service for $0 in-store!

I’m paying a fraction for data compared to PM plans so keeping PM is dependent on dual-sim working in my situation. I keep finding references to the Zenfone 2 Laser supporting “dual LTE standby” but I guess the question is if there is an active data connection via SIM 1, does a call coming in on SIM 2 trigger switching, or is it always going to be manual?

 

I thought (via my SIP service configuration) I’d have my income SIP calls forwarded but sounds like you’re saying there’s a least one other way. More to learn. Maybe will know enough and be in a position to have time to try things out by the next promotion. I imagine all this activity on PM’s website ensures I will be spammed in my FB newsfeed if one happens.

Re: FLASH SALE! Get a SIM + your next 30 days of service for $0 in-store!

I bought a SIM at a participating retailer (K-Mobile) on Sunday Jan 13th. However, I was not told about the free for a month promotion (Next 30 days for $0). I noticed it in the evening after the store was closed and hence, I couldn't return for the deal. This is very disappointing and I expected more from PM. I still didn't activate my account and honestly I don't know if I will if this is the service.

it has more to do with the store than with public mobile

if i was you i would take the picture of the payment and contact the moderators, maybe there is sill something that can be done about it

hope you get it resolved
