Re: [Help Needed] Let us know about your experience on the Community!

@z10user4 Is there a risk to this that I misunderstand? PM already has our phone, email, and name. The only demographic information entered is your age (with ranges). I think being protective of info is important, but I'm having a hard time seeing the risk/invasion of privacy here!

I guess maybe I'm overly paranoid but the form goes through Google first. I'm sure they also have everything on me what with having an Android phone and other Google services but still...

I didn't like other surveys that went through other servers either. cicresearch or some such thing.

@z10user4 Nowadays everything you use online has your information. There is no way to avoid that. Heck they even know our location. Especially google. What are online survey sites going to do with your email phone number and age? Really everybody that signs up for something online has your information. Plus survey sites like those are not run by some dude in his basement. They probably have professional grade servers to run simple surveys.

@BearFBI   Well I'm putting my trust in public mobile that their agreement with Google forms is strictly confidential  your email, name, phone number and age are enough for some to start searching for more personal info to access your account....theyre only missing your account number to port out your phone number fraudulently.

Depends on how much you can fake it with a new service. But yes if one wasn't careful to start up then they would have it for life. ie. Google.

I'm just not quite so willing to give up information.

eg. dealing with a realtor to buy real estate. They ask for birth date. Well why? Money laundering and source and credit whatever. Fine then. I reluctantly provide it. Then wha'd'ya know they send me birthday greetings on my birthday. Shut up. I didn't really want to give you that piece of information as who knows how well you're protecting it. And then you throw it in my face for a frivolous purpose. I don't care to get a birthday greeting from you.

Anyway...this is running way off topic.

@darlicious Yeah if your looking at it that way then yes but why would google want to port your number out of PM endless the link was modified to steal that information but the link was from PM themselves. Also an account number is like a password. You would have to give it to someone to steal your account. That could happen though to other people that are not carful. Some people post their Account number on the forums and someone could steal it before a Oracle could have a chance to edit it.

@BearFBI  Well yes.....and so I'm trusting them but one should always be aware of the personal information you hand over to someone else....you lose control over it so you should always be aware. I understand @z10user4  reluctance. I considered it very carefully before deciding to hand mine over as ....soon as I saw the info they were collecting I completely understood his comments about it being to personal for his comfort level.

Re: [Help Needed] Let us know about your experience on the Community!

I would LOVE to tell you what I think of you!! But ... to do so would require a fully functioning phone. I have been waiting for 6 days and STILL cannot get incoming calls. I would gladly forfeit the $$ I have already spent on this worthless company and go elsewhere but I NOW have an issue re porting my number so I am at your mercy. YOU WIN, PUBLIC MOBILE!! You got me and I have NO option. Don't think this is because I like you, it's because of your sleazy business practices that I NOW am hung up with you and can't even go to another carrier since you have messed up porting the number I have had for a lifetime. NOT IMPRESSED!! I guess I have NO way to let you know, since you don't talk to people, but you can bet I WILL let others know how my experience with Public Mobile has been the absolute WORST. SHAME ON YOU!!

@customer Woah Woah Woah. Hold up a minuite. We don't even know your problem. Please start a new question on the forum. One of us will help you. And it could have been your fault. Most of the time its the user doing something wrong during the porting process.

Re: [Help Needed] Let us know about your experience on the Community!

Totally useless! One bit of poor info after another. After 6 days I still don't have an operable phone and there seems to be no way of getting one through Public Mobile. What a useless sham of a 'business'. I will most certainly be letting others know what a terrible experience I have had with you!!
