Are they selling PM SIM card?

 

 


That's a very good question. How are these repair services specific to Public Mobile members?  Are they doing Public Mobile sales there? Will Mobile Kilnk being providing Public Mobile customer service?

Re: We’re Partnering with Mobile Klinik

Thank you, PM. I hope one never needs such a service but good to know that a reliable repair option is available.

Public Mobile just started doing all of that with their pilot CPO phones (and warranties), fully preconfigured to work with Public Mobile. So I'm guessing they're trying it out "in house" for now, unwilling at this time to officially assign the task directly to their Klinik (or to anyone else).

 

Telus bought the Klinik chain and is apparently dumping money into renovating the brand and business model. But they can always choose to sell it off later if their investment doesn't work out or pay off as intended.

If Klinik can offer reasonably priced repairs that can further extend the lifespan of a device and help reduce the overall carbon footprint of our devices in the disposable society we live in I'm all for it.

 

@Thom20 

You can get a free diagnostic for your bizarre calling issue on your samsung galaxy S8. If they can figure that out I would recommend their services like no tomorrow!

 

Now if i could only convince Outdoor Tech to make a cell phone for the bf all my mobile phone issues would be solved! If they could get someone to fix their walkie talkie app even better......

Re: We’re Partnering with Mobile Klinik

@Catherine_T this is a good addition to PM services.  Some of us get attached to our mobile phone and we treat it as our personal buddy (what? I'm the only one? lol).  So for me, so nice to know that there are a couple of Mobile Klinik stores in downtown Toronto.  😊

I have my reliable manly sidekick (a rugged awesome Cat S61) in a manly "tactical phone holster". Hacked, rooted, upgraded, modded, customized. One of my prized nerd toys.

 

And I have my cheap RCA RLTP6066 which is frustrating and slow and clumsy and looks like a flimsy awkward slippery glass victim just waiting to happen. In an ugly cheap universal case. I hate it. Always thought of it as a "disposable" phone. But it simply refuses to die so I'm still stuck with it. Sometimes work is too brutal for me to take along my hardened ruggedized protected good phone, lol.

@Korth 

Hey the cheap $40 RCA phone that i bought as a temporary stop gap for the bf actually holds the record for the longest lasting phone in the bfs hands.....6 months minus 7 weeks of use of two other now defunct phone victims of the bf. He didnt really kill it either it just wouldnt turn on one day.

Unless there is a specific reason to repair a device such as there being information/content that needs to be recovered, many lower-priced devices or devices that are a few years old are not worth the prices needed to be paid to repair them. While parts can sometimes be inexpensive for such older devices, most customers are not going to want to perfrom the repairs themselves. The amount charged for a 1 hour of labor charges can often make repairs for such devices unfeasible.

Re: We’re Partnering with Mobile Klinik

I called them right after Telus announce they had purchased the company. I had an iPad that I was checking to see what $$ I could get the screen replaced for. Yes they do iPads but no they couldn’t get a replacement screen of suitable quality for my Air 2.

 

Air 2 has a laminated glass/digitizer/LCD that either has to be all replaced at once for fairly Big Bux or a more time consuming repair by someone with the required equipment to de-laminate and relaminate the parts together.

 

That was the end of that!

Re: We’re Partnering with Mobile Klinik

Computergeek541, Telus also owns Public Mobile, hence Telus also owning Mobile Klinik means it's a partnership of subsidiaries of a parent company.
