US long distance minutes not working

I have an active CAN US long distance 200 min calling plan which I have previously used 18 minutes from. It is my understanding that they do not expire but now when I try to make a call it tells me I do not have an add on even though my account is showing I have an active add on.

 

May I have some help please? I have some business calls I need to make!

It sounds like you hit a bit of a snag with the self-serve portal. You'll need the help of a moderator to get your account sorted out and get this add-on manually added back.

Send a private message to @Moderator_Team, include your following info:
- account number
- phone number
- a brief description of what has happened

…and they will be able to look into it for you.

@84DerekNg, just a quick question are you currently in the US trying to make a call?  That long distance plan is only for calls originating in Canada.  If you have travelled to the US you won't have service unless you have Purchased a US add on.  If you are in Canada trying to call the US there are certain area codes that can not be called .  Here is a list https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Announcements/Which-U-S-area-codes-are-not-supported-...

@84DerekNg,

 

I am interested in knowing if the issue is what @ShawnC13 mentioned earlier. Smiley Happy

@Michael77, it has been my experience that if the post goes quiet the OP realizes that it was their error or misunderstanding of the plan.  I could be wrong but that is what I have noticed.

Re: US long distance minutes not working

@simonguillot what happens when you try to dial a long distance number?  Are you dialing it with the "1" at the beginning of the number?  Do you hear a message that long distance charges may apply?  If so, does the call not connect right after?
