I am wondering with some other US plans on other networks you have to completely shut phone off and then turn back on to rest it? Not sure if it might need another setting.


Yes.  You need to enable roaming and restart phone to initialze the APN setting of the US network (AT&T or T-Mobile)


I'm not sure if Dana-S is asking about using a U.S. carrier's sim card and service or Public Mobile's, but a Public Mobile customer using this plan most definitely does not and should not be changing APN settings to that of AT&T or T-Mobile. The usual Public Mobile settings are to be used.

A friend had switched to this plan prior to their trip to the US. Overall experience was satisfactory to them.

To pay little as possible, roaming add-on is probably better.  This plan is for customers who to U.S. regularly. The best part of this plan b is avoiding the texting bug when roaming add-ons expire.

I am very interested in switching from.freedom for this plan....i need to clarify: If I go to the US for a few weeks, I can still use my own phone to call and text to Canada/US, AND I have 2gb of data? NO extra purchase required? NO unexpected roaming costs?


Keep in mind that being a prepaid plan it will simply stop working when you exhaust any particular part of the plan. IE: use up your 2 Gb of US data and it will stop surfing the web while in the US until your next renewal.

Copy. 

using up the 2gb roaming, won't stop me from texting or calling though, correct? I just can't use data until the next cycle? Is this a 30 day plan?

Yes you can still call and text

Question

Answer

How long will this plan be in market?

This is a limited time offer and is subject to change without notice. Please refer to Public Mobile’s Service Terms.  Please note that the promotion will not be honoured after it has ended. This includes SIM cards that have been purchased online, are in-transit and not yet activated.

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

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

I am an existing customer. What is the difference between changing my plan immediately and changing my plan on the next renewal date?

When changing your plan, you have 2 options: (1) change your plan immediately or (2) change on your next renewal date.

 

Here is the difference:

 

 Changing your plan immediately...

You may choose to change your plan immediately if you have used all or most of your services, if your account is suspended and you would like a different plan, or if you would like to get started right away on the new plan. Here are some things you should know about this option:

●     There must be enough funds in your account to cover the full amount of the new plan.

●     A new payment cycle starts when you activate your new plan.

●     Your plan will not be prorated, which means that any days remaining in your current payment cycle will not be credited to your new plan.

●     Due to system limitations, if your account is suspended, you will need to send a private message to our Moderator Team here to change your plan immediately. You will need to be signed in to the Community for the link to work.

●     Any earned Rewards will be applied on your next renewal after the plan change.

 

Changing your plan at the next renewal date…

On the other hand, you may choose to change your plan on your next renewal date because it allows you to use the services you have already paid for. We recommend this option so your money can go further. Here are some things you should know about this option:

●     If you choose to change your plan on your next plan renewal date, the amount owed will be automatically updated.

●     If you have AutoPay set up, the amount of your new plan will be charged on your payment due date.

●     You can cancel a future-dated plan change at any time by clicking on the ‘Plans and Add-Ons’ tab and selecting ‘Cancel Order’.

●     Any earned Rewards will be applied on your next renewal after the plan change.

What happens if the “$60 UL Can/US Talk & Text 8.5GB Can 3G Data with AutoPay plus 2GB US Data Roaming” plan becomes unavailable before my next plan renewal date?

If you chose to change your plan to “$60 UL Can/US Talk & Text 8.5GB Can 3G Data with AutoPay plus 2GB US Data Roaming” on the next renewal date and the request has been submitted successfully, you will still switch to “$60 unlimited Canada/US Talk & Text” even if the promotion ends before your renewal date occurs.
