I have $15 plan monthly plan for my public mobile.
The plan detail mentions - "Unlimited International Text and Picture Messaging". But no information is provided about Local text messaging, that is messaging within Canada. Is local messaging as well unlimited/free?
Solved! Go to Solution.
@Vivek1 Unlimited International texting means that you can send and receive texts to and from anywhere in the world (including Canada) as long as you are in Canada.
If a service is not included in you plan, it will just don’t work.
Public Mobile is prepaid, you will never get other fees if you don’t buy add-on.
As long as you are sending message within Canada, the plan you are having is allowed you to send unlimited Text and Picture message to anywhere.
You do need to configure your APN Settings for Public Mobile and have Data (or WiFi) Enabled to send and receive MMS attachments. They do use Data connection but they don't use any billable/measured Data (meaning they don't consume any Data Add-ons you might purchase, no Data is provided in your $15 Plan).
Without active data connection you'll only see "click to download" placeholders. The Telus network will store attachments which haven't yet been received (acknowledged with a receipt), but I don't know how many msgs can be stored or how long they can be stored before they're "lost" (deleted by the system).
