Re: Get Unlimited Text and 100 mins of Talk for $15

Hi new member but not a Public customer yet.

My wife is with Telus at the moment. She is on the $10 talk and Text plan. No data.

I know Public is part of Telus do you think they will match this plan?

Am I better off switch to this $15? Also would like to know if it is against forum rule to ask for referal?

 

Thanks

If you are talking about the $10 500 mins grandfather plan at Telus, I am on that. PM does not do price matching AFAIK. Even if you are on the regular $10 talk & text 50/50 the PM plan is better pricewise because 1. PM charges $2 less 2. all incoming text are free, so it is like getting double the text messages.

 

The sacrifice is support... only available online, which does have its downside if you need help in a pinch.... PM support is not top notch... waiting days for support is not uncommon. But when all works, you save a bundle, especially if you get referrals, get community rewards, loyalty rewards the longer you are here, etc... it all adds up.

 

And you can request referrals.

 

Forgot to add- $15 is good if you need lots of texting... remember for minutes you can manage your extra minutes by buying an 200 or 400 minute add-on which costs 4¢/min or less and the add-on never expire.

 

HTH.

The Public Mobile plan includes much more for only $5 additional.

 

If she is on Telus Starter 10, that includes:

50 minutes and 50 "incoming/outgoing" sms/mms messages

Telus prepaid Texting 15 has:

no minutes (pay-per-use)

unlimited messsaging

 

 

Public Moible $10 plan includes;

50 minutes

50 ougoing text/unlimited incoming texts

 

Public Mobile $15 plan includes:

100 minutes

unlimited messaging (sms/mms)

 

 

Even if we don't factor in autopay discount and bonuses, Public Mobile's plans are better at both price points.

 

At the $10 price at Public Mobile, you'd be gaining unlimited incoming text messages, and at the $15 price, you'd be gaining 100 caling minutes.

 

After Autopay (preauthorized payments) are factored in , you would get a $2 discount per 30 days at Public Mobile, but on the $15 plan, you'll also get 250MB of data.

Yes --it's a no brainer PM is the best --  offering very attractive and reasonably priced  plans. However as I said in a previous post the following saying may apply " give a mouse some milk and it will ask for a cookie". Have noticed that most -including myself-- seem to like the game of trying to get as low a price as we can -- Let's face it just buying a medium Tim's coffee and a sweet costs more then $3 that we are willing to pay a few times each month, while we chat in this forum complaining about 2 or 3 $$$.  

I'm so glad that after more then 10 years with bell I discovered PM and switched to the very reasonable $30 plan with 1GB data - that allows Internet access wherever I am to be able to compare item prices and save save save. (And more savings -- the $30 plan has been reduced to $25)

Re: Get Unlimited Text and 100 mins of Talk for $15

Good evening,

 

Currently I am using Fido. I'd like to switch to your plan $15 (unlimited text, 100-minutes national talk & 250MB data). I have the following questions before I go ahead:

 

1. is the $15 a fixed rate? Or is it on promotion? Will it be increased after some time?

2. 100-minute talk includes incoming calls and outgoing calls?

3. What does the 30-day plan mean?

4. When the payment cycle starts?

5. I'd like to keep my current cell phone. Can I keep it if I change my SIM card?

 

Thank you for your attention.

The $15 price is going ongoing price ($13 if you enable autopay).  100 minutes is the total combine incoming and outgoing usage, with each parrtial minute of usage rounded up.  30 day plan meas that you prepay for 30 days of service, and that you have to pay before the start of the next renewal period to keep the plan going past that point.

 

Whether you can keep using your current cell phone device dependds on compatiblity and whether or not it is unlooked.  Which model is it?

Hi,

I have been a  PM customer since April.

I have the $15 plan (with auto pay enabled; paying $13 net) with

  • 100 minutes Limited Canada-Wide Talk
  • - 250 MB at 3G speed
  • - Unlimited International Texts

I am thinking of switching over to new $15 plan with unlimited incoming minutes. 

 

QUESTIONS:

1) In the above post, I am confused as to what is meant by "100 minutes is the total combine incoming and outgoing usage ... ".  This contradicts what is being offered?  Wouldn't the new PM offering of "Unlimited Incoming Minutes" mean you are ONLY limited to 100 minutes of OUTGOING minutes?

2) Is the Bonus 250MB with AutoPay in ADDITION to the $2 autoplay benefit or does it replace the $2 autopay benefit?

3) Other than the unlimited incoming minutes, are there any other differences between the two $15 plans?

4) It sounds too good to be true.  What am I missing or not understanding?

Thanks in advance!

1. Correct. That's the old plan. You said it yourself.

2. You get both.

3. No. Edit:...well..you already said the bonus data

4. Nothing. It's a great plan.

 

And now add to that the new add-on of 500 minutes Canada-wide for 5 bucks...rock n roll.

I saw a post about it here in the community recently and it's now showing up on the Plans page of the site under Add-Ons. I didn't hear/see any official announcements about it, however.

Need Help? Let's chat.
