I see what you guys are saying. I find the referral code setup to be well implemented.
Taking a look at Canadian licence plates: the letters I, O, Q and U are generally not used to avoid confusion with 1, 0 and V. Public Mobile probably already has a list of letters/numbers that they are not using. It's really up to them if they want to modify this list.
This is great news ! I have only just joined and was fine about giving my number to friends as a referral obviously, but non contacts ... hummm ... thanks Public Mobile !
@Alan_K It seems I am no longer reciveing the "Congratulations you have referred someone to Public Mobile" texts since the new referral system has been implemented. Has anyone else ran into this bug?
