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?

You may choose to change your plan immediately or on your next renewal date. Here is the difference:

 

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.

 

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 GB at 3G speed” plan becomes unavailable before my next plan renewal date?

If you chose to change your plan to “$40 for 4 GB at 3G speed” on the next renewal date and the request has been submitted successfully, you will still switch to “$40 for 4 GB at 3G speed” even if the promotion ends before your renewal date occurs.

Great, that is a pretty cool plan... I don't really need it, but I am still considering changing from 1.5gb/3 months to this plan... $10 for an extra 3.5gb is pretty cheap, but at the same time I never really use it all... 

 

@stonechucker, if I were you I would keep the fall promo except if you really make lot of calls out of province... 


But why if you don't have a need for it.  We already had this discussion recently.  Donate the money to charity if it's burning a hole in your wallet.

This is great, I was on the 500MB/$30 to see if it would work and just ran out of data with a week to go. Was going to buy a 1GB Booster now and switch to 1GB/$35 on next billing date (Jun 22), but instead I just changed to this 4GB/$40 effective immediately I love the flexibility of "next billing date" vs "bill me now".

 

Thanks for the promo. 3G speeds are just fine for me. 🙂

You will need to message the mods for them to look at this.  The link to do that is in my signature

Well, I guess for the same reason most people take lot of data in the first place... I am assuming most people don't *need* lot of data at all, it's more of a convenience... 

 

If I had more data then I would stop looking for wifi passwords in cafes and restaurant, and I would stop turning data off when I don't actively need it, and I would maybe watch more movies or listen to more music online, or I would stop thinking ahead and predownloading maps when leaving home... How much data you are using is a choice you make.

 

So yeah I could give the money instead, and most people could downgrade and give the money as well 😉

 

Or for the same reason I sometimes go to the restaurant: I don't need to go, I could give the money instead, but I still enjoy to go. Not sure I understand what you are referring to when you say "We already had this discussion recently"?

Well Done PM.  This is the kind of promotion that us as customers can promote to our family and friends, especially with the $10 referral credit for new customers.  I've put two lines on to this plan for our upcoming renewal.
