Re: Public Mobile SIMs available for sale on Amazon!

I ordered mine from Amazon after lunch one day... and it was here the next day before lunch... can't beat that! No shipping charge with A_Prime either. I live in the boonies too, so it's not like it was going from one major city to another.

Now I just have to wait until PM finishes their system update to get hooked up.

I'm not sure why the need to wait. The maintenance doesn't start for another few hours.  Either way, I hope the your activation goes smoothly.

Re: Public Mobile SIMs available for sale on Amazon!

I am late to the game and just saw the SIM on sale in amazon thinking it was offered by some random 3rd party seller. Good that I double check it here and it is legit.

 

Perfect timing for me as I have some gc that I could use and am planning to open a new line soon.

I've seen some design changes to the sim card since the website has been revamped.
Will the sim cards ordered from Amazon and the website reflect this design changes?
Or if we order, we will just get the sim card from the previous years?

@rukawa0929 

The SIMs which I ordered last week from the PM site and arrived this week were of the same design as in 2018 and early 2019, which looked like this:

Makes sense, as there's no reason not to use previous stock simply because of a logo/style change. That said, it's possible they started to produce the new design and pushed them out to certain retail channels, so YMMV depending on where you order from.

@SD08 has mentioned how the sim cards in his picture go back to 2018. Every sim card I've seen in last 6 months has been blue in color. When I first became a customer, the sim cards were mainly orange. The packaging of a sim card I got earlier in the week still has the old logo. I wouldn't be concerned about which design of sim card you receive. They are likely just different batches, possibly from different suppliers.

Re: Public Mobile SIMs available for sale on Amazon!

Not too long ago I noticed my local Dollarama, in Toronto, sells sim cards for Lucky mobile. I think this is very convenient and a smart solution for short-term visitors / tourist especially since activation can be don by phone.  Personally, I wouldn’t trade PM for Lucky but you must agree it’s a good selling strategy on Bell’s part.

It depends on the contract between Dollarama and Bell.  If Bell has the exclusive right at Dollarama, PM may not able to sell its SIM cards at Dollarama.
