Re: Public Mobile Retail Launch

There is no way that they could get retail space in Walmart and not have a price increase.  Walmart isn't going to say oh here is a free space you can have we have no other products to put here anyway.

 

I can see the $10 if you purchase in store but it should be $5 if you are ordering online still.

I have never asked or suggested for a retail location as that isn't a no frills thing, and I knew it would increase costs but we should have the option to either walk in and get one $10 or order online for $5.

Re: Public Mobile Retail Launch

Walmart also sells unlocked phones so it is a good combo.

@ShawnC13, I definitely agree with you. The $5 and $10 separate charges is what could have worked, but you can clearly see that $10 across the board is yet another price increase that makes PM no different from any other carrier.

FM sim's cost $10. Our PM sim cost 5$ plust whatever xpresspost shipping PM had to pay to get it to you. I'm not so sure this is out of the oridinary. I do agree with what you're stating though, that PM has lost the competitive edge from other telecom companies by highjacking the prices overnight.  If anything, It now seems less alluring then Chatr or FM.

The only benefit this announcement has is so if PM decides to once again have a really good deal, then people will be able to get sim cards immediately. Otherwise what is the point of paying more than ordering online? Furthermore, with the price increases, why would anyone join PM now?

 

Edit: I didn't realize PM raised the online rate as well. Common. I really hope PM starts adding more services (ie. VOLTE, Name display, customer service). PM is no longer a budget/value brand.

Re: Public Mobile Retail Launch

$5 simcards online with regular shipping might be a solution

Re: Public Mobile Retail Launch

SIM cards are getting more expensive. I remember the last one I bought before switching to PM was $20 before tax!!!

Re: Public Mobile Retail Launch

Good news, but disappointing to see the doubled charge for online SIM orders.
