Hi Community,

 

We have heard your concerns around some calling and service issues and we thank you for flagging them to us. After investigation, we have identified the cause of the issues some of you have been experiencing and want to share an update.

 

1. Dropped calls - We’re currently experiencing an issue in which select customers may experience dropped calls during peak usage times (approximately 4 to 7pm ET time). Text/data capabilities remain unaffected. Our team is diligently investigating the source of this issue and is fully committed to restoring normal functionality as soon as possible. Until then, we appreciate your understanding.

    • What you can do if you want to connect with someone during peak usage times:
      • Use texting, wi-fi, or data to stay connected
      • Use wi-fi calling apps

 

2. $15 Plan - We’ve successfully fixed an issue that affected the service for select customers who signed up or changed to the $15 100 minute plan beginning April 30. This issue arose at 12:15 AM ET on May 3rd, was identified by our team, and was fixed as of 1 PM ET May 3rd. We understand that staying connected is important, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

    • If you’re on this plan and are experiencing any issues other than dropped calls, please contact our Moderator Team by sending them a private message here - don’t forget to be as descriptive as possible and to include your account information so that we can assist you as quickly as possible.

 

We apologize for these inconveniences and the delay on our end in updating you officially. We always look to identify what the issue is and the impact while gathering as much information as we can before announcing, as we want to mitigate any concerns or questions you may have. However, we understand that those of you affected directly, want an update right away. To that end we are working on improving our internal processes in order to get in touch with you as quickly as we can.

 

Stay tuned as we will update you on the first issue as soon as we can.

Re: Important Service Update

 

Thanks for update.  

 

Lots of technical issues recently.  Hopefully, the reliability of Public mobile improves in the near future.  It is fine to be cheaper, but the service needs to be reliable.  Hard to justify these disruptions recently.....

Re: Important Service Update

The call drops issue, is the issue you've identified as one that's been occurring for some time, or is this a recently identified issue?

I've noticed calls have been dropping at random times, usually between 7-8pm Eastern time.

Re: Important Service Update

The solution to dropped calls is tell Customers dont make real Calls ?   How can PM excpect people to pay for a service that seems to get worse everyday instead of better ?

@Alan_KYou need to be aware many Customers are unhappy with all the reccent service problems, and less value in plan offers everyday ... your competion has better servies, pricesand plans... PM needs to pick it up fast and take care of existing Customers.

Your going to have to send a message to the moderators to have them address your problem... click here

Send as much account info (name, phone number, pin) to help speed things up but it could be several hours before they respond as this have been busy, as you know. Please be patient.

Re: Important Service Update

One thing that may have helped the fear-mongers:

You said you identified an issue at a certain time. You could have said within the first hour - "We have identified an issue with this $15 plan and are working to fix - please stay tuned." Instead of waiting almost 18hours to issue a statement that says you found a problem and it took us 12 hours to fix.

 

Communication - you have to be more transparent with these issues

Re: Important Service Update

Yes my calls today and yesterday around this time we’re constantly being dropped. I was unsure of why. 

 

How long will this this issue take to be resolved as most people can’t text while driving?
