Hey Community,

 

As of April 22nd, 11:59 PM, the following price plans are being expired:

 

  • $25 for 1 GB at 3G speed
  • $40 for 5 GB at 3G speed
  • $45 for 6.5 GB at 3G speed

If you’re interested in taking advantage of these ready-made plans while they’re still available, learn how you can set up a future-dated plan change on your next renewal date by clicking here. By doing so before April 22nd, your plan will automatically change to the plan that you choose on your next cycle.

FAQ

Question

Answer

Will I keep the same plan forever? Will my plan change?

Please refer to our Terms of Service for more information about our plans.

My current plan is one of the ones set to expire. Is any action required from me?

If you would like to continue on your current plan, no change is required.

I currently have one of these plans. If I switch to another plan, can I switch back?

You can switch back to these plans up to April 22nd. After that, these plans will no longer be available.

The $40 plan wil be going from 4.5GB + 500MB down to 2GB + 500MB.  The $45 plan will be going from 6GB + 500MB to 4GB + 500MB.  This is based on what is now being advertised.

 

I realize that these two expiring plans were advertised as special offers, but they have been around so long that they may as well have been conisdered the regular pricing.

 

I can't even begin to express how disappointed I am in Public Mobile for this decision, especially to do it just to copy Chatr.  I am sure Public Mobile is already expecting a pretty poor reaction to these changes, although some other members will likely be even more criticial.

 

(update: the changes no longer show but I am sure that others already saw them)


+1. I was hoping for 1.5GB or 2GB for $25, PM is making a big mistake by discontinuing these popular plans and replacing them with less valuable ones.

Whenever a cell phone carrier announces that an offer is expiring, I do not believe that they would make things/plans better.  They would roll it out and the new plan would be the show/annoucement.  When an annoucement is made of an offer expiring, I believe that should be taken as a warning of things to come.  That doesn't mean that things can't ever change again for the better, just that potential customers should not be anticipating the changes that are about to happen to be good for them.

Great plans! I have a friend that just signed up for one of the plans. She was shocked at how much she was getting for so little. Definitely a good deal.

Good thing i check the public mobile fourms today. I didn't expect this to happen. I'm on the $10 offer for 6 months with the $30 for 1gb plan. Guess I have to leave it early or I may loss more money in the long run if I don't switch. ;(

@wickedgx 

When you make the change, be sure to select "change on next renewal date" rather than "change plan now."  That way, you'll at least get to use the remainder of your current cycle and you'll only lose the remaining $10 credits, which will be evened out by the $5/month savings within about 8 months time.  After that, you'll actually be paying less.

Anyway FWIW I really think the 25$ plan is a great deal and have been trying to tell as many people as I can about it 

 

 


Me too.  This is the last push before the deal ends.  @acmethod , if you have issues with securing a SIM card on Monday, send me a private message, I can provide you with a SIM card number to allow you to at least get the activation done in time.  You can do a SIM card change whenever you get a hold of one.  It is a little extra effort, but at least you won't miss out on this deal.


Hi @will13am we were able to find a sim after all at superstore kiosk. We got my friend activated and transferred the phone number. We’ll use the other sim in the mail to transfer his father. Thanks for the offer. I really do appreciate it.

Good for you.  Enjoy the savings.

Last minutes procrastinating existing Public Mobile customers:  As of 1:30am EDT, all three of these plans are still available in self-serve, so hurry up if you thought you missed it.

I suspect the deadline is Apr 22 1159pm PDT. I just signed up a friend at 130am EDT. I see a $45.99 (5GB/$40, QC resident) authorization on my CC. Was getting their CC # in the morning then saw the announcement here. Just snuck in. 🙂 [I won't know until morning if their SIM worked, but it charged so I think it should].
