Question

Answer

How long will this plan be in market?

This is a limited time offer and is subject to change without notice. Please refer to Public Mobile’s Service Terms.  Please note that the promotion will not be honoured after it has ended. This includes SIM cards that have been purchased online, are in-transit and not yet activated.

Will I keep the same plan forever? Will my plan change?

Please refer to our Terms of Service for more information about our plans.

I am an existing customer. What is the difference between changing my plan immediately and changing my plan on the next renewal date?

When changing your plan, you have 2 options: (1) change your plan immediately or (2) change on your next renewal date.

Here is the difference:

Changing your plan immediately...

You may choose to change your plan immediately if you have used all or most of your services, if your account is suspended and you would like a different plan, or if you would like to get started right away on the new plan. Here are some things you should know about this option:

●     There must be enough funds in your account to cover the full amount of the new plan.

●     A new payment cycle starts when you activate your new plan.

●     Your plan will not be prorated, which means that any days remaining in your current payment cycle will not be credited to your new plan.

●     Due to system limitations, if your account is suspended, you will need to send a private message to our Moderator Team here to change your plan immediately. You will need to be signed in to the Community for the link to work.

●     Any earned Rewards will be applied on your next renewal after the plan change.

Changing your plan at the next renewal date…

On the other hand, you may choose to change your plan on your next renewal date because it allows you to use the services you have already paid for. We recommend this option so your money can go further. Here are some things you should know about this option:

●     If you choose to change your plan on your next plan renewal date, the amount owed will be automatically updated.

●     If you have AutoPay set up, the amount of your new plan will be charged on your payment due date.

●     You can cancel a future-dated plan change at any time by clicking on the ‘Plans and Add-Ons’ tab and selecting ‘Cancel Order’.

●     Any earned Rewards will be applied on your next renewal after the plan change.

What happens if the “$40 for 4.5 GB at 3G speed” plan becomes unavailable before my next plan renewal date?

If you chose to change your plan to “$40 for 4.5 GB at 3G speed” on the next renewal date and the request has been submitted successfully, you will still switch to “$40 for 4.5 GB at 3G speed” even if the promotion ends before your renewal date occurs.

I switched to PM recently from Freedom Mobile and can compare coverage. Now I have access to the network from my basement desk, but before no service when I had horrible freedom mobile. 

I am so happy now.

Hmmm, if they could get something together today before my plan renews tonight, that'd be great.

Lucky called me today to get to switch because I was with Virgin before they said and the new plan would be great they said. I don't see any positive for me as my plan is better value for my $$

MobileSyrup forgot to mention the $5 auto-topup credit only last for 5 months.

 

But the last line of the article caught my attention:

Bell is also planning to bring Lucky Mobile customers an app that enables talk and text over Wi-Fi by the end of 2018.

 

That is what a number of PM customers are waiting for. 

I looked at the ad on Lucky today... they're still Zone plans... however, they throttle data at no charge after full use (in Zone).

The current version of the $40/4.5GB plan at Lucky Mobile isn't a zoned plan.  I'm uncertain if Lucky does "unlimited" on this plan.  Not long ago, Lucky also offered $45/5.5 unzoned, but now they are only offering this as an in-zone plan.

@computergeek541, when I looked at the page this afternoon, the more detail page said in zone.  I know I have a vision impairment, but my magnification was large enough to read with ease.

 

If it has changed since I looked at it, my information was correct at the time I wrote it.

 

EDIT.  So, now I see I was looking at the 5.5 plan earlier, which is a zone plan.  If I had kept scrolling, I would have found the correct plan.  Sorry, my mistake.
