i think public mobile offered me 1GB DATA for 1 month free? thank you.....but not sure..i dont use wifi outside home,, so i dont want public mobile to renew it later and charge me more $$ for 1 gb...thank you
It's not for one month. It's one-time and lasts for as long as it takes to use up (if your account is still open). Add-ons don't renew on their own.
If you read Alan K’s first note in this string it provides a good description of this free offer and answers most questions.
The "1GB Promo" add-on appeared on my account without any effort on my part - it'll probably never get used but it's a $30 value, lol! - thank you Public Mobile.
This is greeeeat!, Thank you so much, not a lot of companies are giving gift to current customers!
I got the message that PM has given me 1GB of data, it is showing on my account, but not working on my phone. Says 'host not found,' every time I try to access it.

Which model phone do you have? Make sure to turn on your data. Reboot phone. Maybe toggle airplane mode on, wait a few minutes and toggle off.
Check your APN Settings to make sure that it matches the following:

Proxy: Leave blank
Port: Leave blank
Username: Leave blank
Password: Leave blank
Server: Leave blank
MMSC proxy: 22.214.171.124

Maybe try network reset.
For those who are impatient... Have patience, it takes some time to be applied, but does come, as the original message started. Good luck, and thanks PM. Nice to see retention perks for existing customers.
