Re: Until December 6 - Get a $25 Credit for You and Your Friend by Referring them to Public Mobile

Alan glad to see this promo back as many have asked for it, but I think timing is wrong.  We need to get the current wait times down back to a normal 2-4 hours not 2-4 days (or longer)  Is the back end ready for an influx of new customers.  Can it handle  a large increase in activations without putting extra strain on the moderator resources?

Or maybe like with The Lounge, new postings in Announcements don't show up in the new posts or topics lists.

Edit: and yet here we are...never mind. Smiley Happy
