Just now,after all this morning sorting out this new improved mess, am getting a message that tells me they will take a payment on the 28th. Payment is due today, the 29th. I  then get a message saying that my account was not renewed as they had not received payment. This was much after the payment could finally be made after the cumbersome task of going to a non preferred browser, opening an incognito page and shuffling around. I do hope that for the sake of those who will stay with this lot that they fix it soon. I will not be one of them. Perhaps,if we all got together and contacted the CRTC, it would make a difference. Mobile services in Canada are an atrocity.

Hi. This has been a horror story. No notification that the website interface would change. Looked like a scam to me. I am supposed to input credit card details to this. Get real. What is Eversafe? Would it have scuttled PM to send an email to people letting them know about it. Like many others, I do not want a 'community', although in the end, it was community that helped resolve the issue. I just want a mobile that works. Optus in Aus is never so utterly annoying.

Waking up to no service on the day that the payment is due, no ability within the webpage interface to make a manual payment, and spending more than an hour in utter isolation trying to make this work. Chatbot not working, no way to submit a ticket, oops messages and down for maintenance messages. Someone in the community helped by giving me a link to a cs agent. Others listed in posts did not work.

Is PM worth it to me? Not beyond this month. This will give me time to port my account away from this utterly frustrating experience. Gaby, the CS agent was helpful though.

@MinnieMouse , you have your own post that you created about this on Thursday. Customers responded trying to help you but you never responded back!

In case you can’t find it, below is the link to your post so you can find your way there! 🙂

MinnieMouse
Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

how would I unset the data limit?

 

HI @MinnieMouse   start your own post.  this is more for issue with the new My Account

check if your phone has data limit,  you might have set up and it is blocking your data

I need help as I bought extra data but cannot access it. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING. REBOOTING PHONE. This is basic info. Read over everything onside. TRied posting in community. Why give me a BADGE for posting but no answer !!!!!! tried the chat line. I am at neighbours house outside, getting eaten by mosquitoes. I HAVE TRIED FOR 2 DAYS !! Can't take this anymore. Yesterday I had to write an obitiuary / goodbye note to have read a funeral of friend's son on my husband's cell phone, it was awful.

You aim high?  I am a new customer and I was tortured with activation and trying to find service and registering on all the places needed.  I thought I had it all figured out and then I try to use your "Eversafe" and find I have lost my forum name.  Can you please stop making things so complex and try your new technology before forcing it on your customers?  You don't aim high, you aim cheap like me (that's why I keep suffering with Public).

Keep trying to create a ticket number, they can do eSIM now on new activations,so perhaps they can refund you for the lost SIM card and get you activated. We are all in a long que, but they are responding as fast as they can. I'm sorry this must be fustraing. 


@TeaGuide22 , I’m confused! I didn’t lose a SIM Card. I’m a current Customer 😊. I missed something sorry! 😕

Hi I have looked at my account and I can add on 500 extra Canadian minutes for 5.00. It's just under add on's on the left side of the screen at the top and on the right side at the top you will see change my rate plans. I hope this helps you out. Sorry I didn't see this sooner. It looks like an available option. Good luck and enjoy the rest of your day! Cheers

@A_CX_PM 

can you add an option to remember the username for the login please?

can we do a vote on the app and get rid of eversafe. this app is going to create even more headaches for you guys going into the future. PM doesn't have the resources to keep the app up to date.

all that was done was added bloatware to phones and the website

@Kristowhy ,Canadian data add-ons expire after 30 days from purchasing not voice (minutes, talk) add-ons as per your picture in your message. 🙂 Unless it changed again! I’m assuming they keep that wording posted so Customers will know it is data add-ons that expire after 30 days of purchasing!

Logged into my account with the $15 plan and when browsing the add-on's to buy the word for voice add-on's is incorrect.  For these VOICE add-on's it says "Data add-ons expire after 30 days".

@A_CX_PM  does this mean the voice add-on's now expire after 30 days as well or simply a mistake?

Here are the details of the $15 plan and what is included:

*100 outgoing Canada-wide minutes and Unlimited incoming Canada-wide minutes

*Unlimited International text and Picture Messaging

Let me know if you have any other questions, I stay at your disposal!

@A_CX_PM ,

We are unable to submit a support ticket through the virtual assistant/chatbot. We can only private message CS_Agent!
Also, the link in virtual assistant/chatbot window to private message CS_Agent doesn’t work, it send us to the community!

@PreachJohn1 It takes some time getting used to, from what i see actually a bit less than the previous interface. Scary part is if you do get cut off, my first instinct was to get to my community id which is not available to me (for now) so naturally i freaked out
for the 3g plans, they are not showing on the site, but once i log into the account i see the options for 15 and 25 3g plan.
i suspect that they are just not advertised and that you will be able to chose them during the activation,

Since Thursday, internet connection has dropped randomly at least a couple of times on my phone even when bar was full and was shown as connected to 5G network.  It would eventually come back, but was a huge inconvenience.  I have an iPhone 13 Pro, and am on a 3G plan.

@pm-smayer97   The 500 mins. add-on is still available.   From the overview page click Add-ons from the top right of the page and select the Minutes tab.

I believe you also was asking about receiving the verification codes on suspended accounts.  You can still receive the code either via SMS or email but the phone may not show an alert that you've received a SMS and need to open the message app.  I tested that on a suspended account couple of days ago, the only problem was the SMS didn't seem to arrive during the several attempts and appeared (with the correct time stamp) much later on the phone.  However, there's an option when selecting resend to have it sent by email and VM.  I never tested voicemail.

@LitlLdy   So far only the data add-ons have the newly introduced 30 day expiry.

The 500 Mins Canadian Add-on is no longer showing on the main PM website. Can anyone confirm is this add-on is gone for good? I have yet to be success in setting up my login as I am apprehensive in following through given all the problems with Eversafe, so I cannot check this myself yet.


@pm-smayer97 , I can see that the add-on is still available to add to my account (they expire 30 days after purchase)!
