Hey Community,


It may be the middle of winter, but we’re hoping that you’re feeling warm this Valentine’s Day! While we here at Public Mobile believe any day is a good day to show you care, Valentine's Day is a great opportunity to show the people in your life how much they mean to you. Don’t have a significant other? Take the chance to show your friends, family, or even yourself how special they are! 


Are you all about grand gestures, or would rather keep it simple? Whether you lean towards champagne and roses or a quick text or call, we want to hear from you! Comment below by 12:00 pm ET on February 21st, 2020 and tell us how you show your loved ones you care for a chance to win!


This Valentine's Day we want to share the love with you, so we'll be selecting 20 winners at random to receive a one-time 1GB data add-on! Contest runs from February 14th to February 21st, 2020. Make sure to read the contest rules before entering.

I don't celebrate Valentine's, but I hug my loved ones whenever I have a chance.

LOL, you romantic devil!!! 🤣 


As for how I "spread the love", I choose to invoke my right to remain silent 'til I consult my lawyer. 😉 


That, and given that I got the Holiday 1GB freebie, late last year, and haven't even touched it, I hereby authorize PM to choose another recipient, in the event that my name gets chosen randomly in this contest. Thank ya kindly, though.... 👍

Nothing too major as I don't have a SO, but friends keeping my busy is all I need.  Hanging out all day and just having fun.

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

I took the day off(self employed) to be with my wife of 36 years. For lunch I cooked her 4 chocolate waffles and asked her if she wanted them in the shape of a heart. Her responce was to not waste the food.

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Nothing major, just the classic flowers and choclates for my better half and I always do one mid-range gift (try to stay under $50 for this made up Hallmark event) and this year that is a flat iron for her hair as she has been making due with one that is 20+ years old and has a duck-taped handle and electric taped power cable - a useful, yet hopefully, still appreciated gift. Later tonight I take on making her fave dish and then "Netflix and chill" as the saying goes.

Deputy Mayor / Adjoint au Maire

Keep the family close and celebrate on the weekend. Put together a little gathering for my nephew and my son whose birthdays fall close to valentines day.  So we have a birthday valentine mashup.

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

We are little old to cellibrate V day like young ones do but we do like to do something for each other. I usually cook all meals for my sweety. Flowers are not a prefered way to say I love you in the family. We plan to dine out on the weekend.

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

Spending time together and having a bite to eat at the same time.

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Picked my wife up at work and took her to lunch, tonight making Pizza with the kids and having a netflix night together.

Great Citizen / Super Citoyen

I love everybdy 5o win 

Is there any better gift than our time? Can't buy it, can't earn more and when it's lost or used, cannot get it back. Use it wisely 😉

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Today is my mum's birthday,

so this morning I said Happy Bday and got her a pair of Wireless Bluetooth earphones that she's wanted for a while. 

As for everyone else, I try to spread positivity.

Deputy Mayor / Adjoint au Maire

Just spending more time together I guess, nothing fancy.


Happy Valentine's day everyone 🙂

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

I don't really spent Valentine's any different than any other day. My broke single self just sits in self pity at home.

Retired Oracle / Oracle Retraité

For me, spending quality time with someone is the best way to show love.

So true.  That said, it doesn't hurt to include something special into the "daily routine".  In the spirit of happy wife - happy life, the dinner and dance has been booked months ago. 

Mayor / Maire

Gifts can't replace time, unless time is the gift. Great weekend to spend some quality time with those we love, I'll make sure electronics and WiFi is off most of this weekend.

Happy Valentine's day everyone
