Re: Online SIM delivery may be longer than usual until Canada Post rotating strike has ended

Thanks @Brooke_C, hopefully people won't run into issues at Walmarts if they are just wanting to purcahse a sim and activate at home online


I tried buying a SIM card from Walmart because I knew that I wouldn't get my Sim in the mail before the $25/$25 offer expired.  The guy at Walmart said I was unable to purchase the SIM.  I would have to get them (Walmart) to switch me over.  So no $25 credit for me.  I also switched over 2 family members as well, but Walmart insisted on setting them up to!

@BobS, stand up to them.  Public Mobile states you are to be able to purchase a SIM at any of the retailers.

 

If Wal-mart flunky (the 3rd party I understand) won't let you do it, get management involved.

 

Public Mobile has been clear about the retailers. Originally, they were only to sell them.  Activating them is now a bonus for them, so the are reluctant to do so.

My friend's card is delayed. She got it today and the $25 promotion is over. Sad.

Re: Online SIM delivery may be longer than usual until Canada Post rotating strike has ended

Not sure if this would relate to my issue at all, but I ordered a sim card back in november and I still haven't received it. I got an order confirmation in an email, I have a receipt and everything, but no sim card. I even tried phoning Public Mobile which was no help as I need a public mobile phone number to speak to somebody. pressed 0 and everything, no help. this might just be a big confusion and maybe the canada post strike affected my order? not sure. But I can't do anything until I have an account, which I can't create because I don't have a public mobile phone number....

 

Thanks!

This thread can probably get taken off of the main front community page

@animal41, that works out to about 4 working days.  Are you in a remote area?  If it doesn't show up within the next few days, I would contact the moderators via private message and see what the next step is.  From what I have heard, Canada Post is pretty much caught up with their backlog.
