Special announcement coming soon

Alan_K

Hey Community,

 

Back in the summer of ‘17, we announced that we were expanding our presence by selling our SIM cards at both national and independent retailers.  We wanted to give Canadians more control and choice: purchase and activate online or visit your local neighbourhood store.

 

Since then, we’ve launched at many great retail partners like, Walmart, WOW! Mobile, K-Mobile, London Drugs, The Mobile Shop, Koodo Authorized Dealers, and various independent wireless retailers. In 2019, we’re continuing this journey with the same goal in mind: empower more Canadians to do wireless differently. To that end, we have yet another special announcement coming soon about an exciting addition to our current line-up. Stay tuned for more details!

Ad campaign. Never seen an ad for public mobile on tv or anywhere else. When I researched cell providers and their sister companies I found PM.

You think the annoucement is in the ad or you think an ad campaign is the special announcement?

I think the announcement has to do with AI bots.  Lots of them.  Moderator bots.  They've just unleashed them a few at a time in the last few days, and they're now amongst us, randomly popping up and answering posts...

I dont have shipping costs with prime, and they deliver to my door in just 2 days

@denis2, buy what from Amazon?  A plan, a phone, a SIM?  How does Amazon make it easier?

 

You can already go to one of five different retailers in Canada, and get all of these.  Without shipping costs.

being able to buy from Amazon would be great !


Great idea especially for the prime members with weekend delivery.

Sounds like more places to buy SIM cards or easier to activate from a different retail outlet. That's what I get from the announcement above.

@stonechucker  I agree, we are left just hanging here waiting for this huge announcement! 

Sadly, I'm starting to wonder if there will ever be a special announcement.  @Alan_K, haven't we waited long enough?

I doubt it will be a Koodo Migration deal as in past they said they where working on making Public Mobile better. If it's a Koodo Migration deal then it's not making PM better.


Koodo migration (postpaid) from PM is part of the Telus master plan. Robot Sad

Perhaps no surprise at the end, that's surprising!  Cat Happy

Its not that unbelievable

The other Blue carrier is offering the exact same migration offer if switch to the Red carrier postpaid

So kinda surprising Telus is napping right now

What's the prize for winning this?  lol

 

The big announcement is going to be that Bell and Rogers are going to sell PM sim cards!  Bell and Rogers decided they cannot compete with PM and will try to cooperate with them instead.  hahaha

 

Or, they will just start to sell unlocked phones with discounts at their retail  partners.  Now this would be very cool don't you think?  Smiley LOL   Smiley Very Happy

At the conclusion of the brainstorming session, the newbie thought they said keep the worst idea.
