Hi Community,

We’re aware of an issue impacting some customers which is preventing them from updating their credit card details in My Account. Our team is actively investigating the issue. 

If you are experiencing this issue please submit a ticket to our Customer Support Agents here or by messaging CS_Agent. 

We will provide more updates as we have them. 

-- Update as of December 3, 5:23pm ET --

This issue is still ongoing. In the meantime, if you need to update your payment information please follow these details: 

  • Aviod updating your credit/debit card unless necessary (i.e. your renewal date is upcoming and card is expired)
  • If possible, top up with a voucher. Vouchers can be purchased at various retail locations or online via third-party sites (note that some sites may charge additional fees)
  • If you cannot use a voucher, please reach out to a Customer Support Agent here or by messaging CS_Agent for assistance

-- Update as of December 3, 7:33pm ET --

This issue has been resolved and payments & card updates should no longer be imapcted. If you are still experiencing issues with your card please note these details:

  • Log out of your account and relog in before updating your card
  • If you attempted to update the same card multiple times please try again tomorrow or today with a different card as there is a daily limit on update attempts for security purposes. 
  • Make sure that your credit card postal code matches your phone number's area code
  • As always, please be sure that you are inputting the correct card details

Thanks,

Did you get any help? Although it's unlikely you can get your legacy plan back ($40 or $50 plan?) Depending on the new plan you accidently switched to if it was "cheaper" the plan cost savings will help pay for the $15/1000 US minutes add on. The minutes do not expire until you completely consume them. Unless you talked an awful lot to your US contacts each month the add on has nearly 17 hours of voice minutes to the US.

But you can always ask customer support if they can return you to your old plan but I highly doubt it?

I had to get a new debit Visa bank card in December, 2023 because my card was cracked and would no longer scan. Then I got the 611 sms from Public Mobile saying payment failed. I logged in to my account on PM and made several attempts to change my card info. I kept failing over and over. I rebooted my cell phone and my laptop to clear out the cache memory. I logged back to my PM account. It showed I no longer had a plan. So I browsed through the plans and add ons. I somehow updated my card info and made a payment or added funds, can"t recall now. But when I looked at the plans that were available, I saw several  that appeared to be a lot cheaper than mine with more data, so I browsed through tyhem to see the details. I ended up clicking on a plan but then couldn't back out it. I wasn't aware that I had actually changed my plan. I closed the web page, reopened and logged in to my account but it was still in the middle of changing my plan. I backed out after I discovered that I would lose my Unlimited Canada US calling anytime. So how can I get that plan back? I've been a loyal customer for several years. I do not ever use but a small amount of the monthly data on my plan, so when it said my plan was invalid I merely browsed the other plans. I had no idea that I got tricked into a different plan and lost my unlimited Canada US calling. Please help.

Please do contact the Customer Support Agents.  I was locked out of my account due to a problem with inputting my credit card information.  I spoke with Gaby who got it all straight.  Now everything is working fine and dandy.  My evaluation of Public Mobil is now back up to love it --- by far the cheapest service that meets my very limited needs at $15 per month + sometimes (hint hint) they give bonuses especially around Christmas time.  Everyone stay safe and have a joyous Christmas and a great New Year.

It's definitely not a Bank issue, everyone is having this issue when the Cards work everywhere else. 

It's been a serious 'Ongoing' issue since the maintenance on December 1st.

Lies, this is crap. I have lost communication for a week between remote isolated small villages as PM has blamed the bank. Pre authorized payments has been problem free for years until the unfaithful day incomplete causing chaos and proliferating trouble without a voice to resolve or service to connect!. 

now an overpriced voucher charging taxes twice has arranged a different service and price and these disruptive jump off requests for more wasted time and comments ...

Best to send a private message to CS_agent to ask for help - use the email icon on the top right of this page. They can look into the details of the problems you are having and fix them for you. In my case, it turned out not to be an issue with my credit card but rather a glitch in the PM system. Good luck.

Tried multiple cards as well. Been having an issue with it accepting my visa debit all summer so I’ve been having to go get gift cards which worked successfully until today.

I've tried Multiple Cards as well being Visa, Mastercard, Koho.. still no success here! 😪

They we're cards that worked before as well, so I don't understand what's going on..

I had to use a different card. Would not take my visa - tried so many times. Did a debit visa (different card) and it worked. Still not a solution because that’s not the card we wanted to use.

Still not Resolved!!!

Can we please get this worked on so I can finally update my Credit Card before the renewal date?

It's been asking me to 'Try again Later' for days with no success at all...

This is not fixed and this is not a solution. Phone services have been cut off because I cannot enter correct my credit card info. This is horrible and there’s no way to contact someone to resolve this. The issue is not fixed I have been trying for THREE days to update my card and reconnect my phone.

You can also update by changing or edit by saying you’re adding funds, once you update you just don’t continue with payment and it’s updated

I just want to share that I have been trying to update the expiry/3 digit code to my new unexpired card. I tried for two weeks and nothing would update. I ended up just putting in a completely different card and it finally worked.
