PM is not for business or your job is depending on your phone because the moderator response time is 48 hours or more. 

 

You should get a temporary number from PM and test the service before porting your number to PM.  Your phone number must be active in order to port your number.  Login to your self-serve account.  Select

Great plan at a great price.  But i've seen this promo a number of times now, might as well just make it a permanent regular plan.  This feels kind of like the Nike Store or Foot Locker, where all year round it's buy one get the other 50% off promo.  Just make it a regular and stop calling it a promo.  If it's always here then just call it what it really is.

But if they call it a regular plan, the carriers they are reacting to will do the same, and we can’t have everyone having the same, but still different plans advertised.

 

PM is no zones, throttled LTE to 3G speeds.  Chatr and Lucky are regular 3G, in zones, and slower.

I dont think it matters what they call it.  I just enjoy the cheaper pricing. I was paying double at Bell before I switched.  Just my 2 cents.

What's the difference between having it at 3G speed vs. LTE? And how do I check my current plan's speed?

@kacey, look at the Overview page of your 'My Account' information.

 

If your package description says 3G Sped, you're on a 3G Speed plan.  If you just see X GB of DATA, you're on the LTE data plan.

 

They both run on 3G and LTE networks, however, the 3G Speed plans when running on the LTE is slowed down to what you would see as potential maximum speeds of a 3G network, but with the 'quick access' of the latency of LTE.

 

If you're just doing social media, minimal media streaming at a normal or low quality, you'll be okay with the 3G Speed plans.  If you're doing heavy usage of date, you'll more likely want LTE plans.

Actually, I use quite a lot of data, but it's just by browsing the Internet. You could use 2 Go a month and need a LTE plan or use 10Go and be fine with a 3G plan.

 

I personnaly have never felt restricted at any time with my LTE capped plan. Probably because I use the Internet for not-so-demanding tasks. The funny thing is that most people complain about the fact that 3G speed is ridiculous, yet, many could switch to those plans without realizing it.

It's a great plan if your going to watch videos on your phone. Just remember 6GB go fast

The plan says it has picture messaging when I select it but once I have It, it no longer says that, nor will picture messaging work on my phone

No longer says what where?

You might need to check the APN settings. And you have to have the cell data on even though you might not have data in your plan.
