As it turns out @Alan_K needs to be a tad more precise with the flash promo announcements wording... An account credit isn't quite the same as 0$ (implying free) unless the tax is also credited... Hehe!

Time to order another one from Amazon as a backup now. :thumbsup:


Mind explaining why you buy several Sim cards as "backup", is it that you lose your phone often? 

 

Curious...

The free sim promotion is not via an account credit. There is no up front cost for the sim card, not even tax.

 

As for the Flash Sale, no tax needs to be paid for the free 30 days either.

Several?? Just one as a backup is several? Okayyyy

 

Anyway, I always have one on hand cause if a friend wants to sign up I have one I can sell him so he doesn't have to wait to get one.

Hi,

 

I was at the Wow Mobile Boutique and signed up for Public Mobile as a new member at 11:44am this morning and they made me pay for a SIM card.  Should I not have gotten it for free?

 

Also, can someone tell me how to change my 4 digit PIN # ?

 

Thanks!

@MercmanYou would have to go back and talk to Wow mobile with the print out of the annoucement.

 

You would need to contact the moderators by clicking on the ? in the lower right hand corner in order to change your PIN#

@Mercman  did you activate on a 25$ plan or more? If so it should have been free. The pin number you have to send a message to the Moderator_Team and and they can change it. Click here to start a conversation with Simon the chat bot and get a ticket for the pin change

Yes, I signed up for the $25 plan.  It is difficult for me to go back to WoW as I live 1.5 hours away where my brother lives.  I had to have him accompany me so that I could keep my cell number.  I was on a family plan in his name and he had to be there to authorize the unlocking of the phone and the service termination with Rogers.  Do I have to go back to WoW (1.5 hours away)?

@Mercman  message the moderators to see if they can just apply a 10$ credit on your account or something!
