@will13amare you sure?  was it for number porting during activation?  if so, yes  that doesnt count. 

 

I still  believe you can only change numbers once per 30 days via self serve (as porting and new nnumbers are fount in the same section).   this is form on of teh KB articles "Note that you can change your phone number once every 30 days after you’ve activated."

I recently moved from Chatr to PM and I can say that the process just took me 15-20 mins including the new sim registration and the porting from Chatr to PM.

 

If Chatr agent has already confirmed that the porting can be done, you can certainly get the sim from Walmart. Do not activate the sim at walmart if possible and do it using PM online portal at https://activate.publicmobile.ca/. You can also order a SIM online at https://store.publicmobile.ca/cart.

 

The steps which I followed is:

1. Logged in to Chatr online portal and set a PIN under my account. This will be needed to port the Chatr number to PM.

2. Then go to https://activate.publicmobile.ca/ and follow the screen options to register your new SIM.

3. Provide your chatr details including the PIN and the number which you want after porting (I used the same number which I was using).

4. Go ahead with the plan and payment and VOILA ! You are done.

 

Thats all what is needed. You can also use someone's referral and would get a 25 CAD credit to your account as part of the ongoing promotion.

 

Thanks.

porting that fast? The porting itself should be fast, but the question is how long does it take for PM mod team to handle the request. I dont know, but i know the PM mod team respond pretty slow from my previous experience with them for technical issues. Unless the porting process is done automatically by the system, otherwise I dont think the PM mod team can handle it that fast. Of course I hope they can do it really fast.

 

I have to activate the SIM in walmart since thats what the offer says. I am getting the $25 credit plus free SIM card offer, not the 25 referral one.

@yyzyy  porting is pretty much automatic, not really sure how it works, but basically the info you send and  your existing account info needs to match. if that fails then you are in a stuck port situation and taht takes time for teh mods to fix.

 

i believe even if you are activating at walmart you can get a 10 referal bonus from PM by adding a referal.  it shoudl stack on that promotion.

Re: Port in number twice in a month,possible?

I just ported in from chatr a few days ago. Here are some chatr-specific tips:

 

  • You have to include your account number. This is not shown on your account, you must call customer service and ask for it. Providing your PIN on the porting form will not work.
  • Make sure you disable autopay on chatr, otherwise there is a chance you will be charged even after you port out.
  • chatr customer service is pretty lenient. If you have to port out and you don't want to top up, try giving them a call and explaining your situation. Chances are, as was my experience, they may put $10 into your account as a courtesy and you will be able to keep your number active to port out.
