Urgent BC- Require Public Mobile SIM

Hi there
I'm currently located in the Interior/Okanagan of BC, looking to sign up with PM for service in Vancouver. I am also on the job hunt, and waiting 3-7 business days for a SIM is too long! Anyone in Kelowna, Kamloops area (or worst case Vancouver!) have an extra SIM available?

Cheers

If you order a SIM today more likely you will get by Tuesday or Wednesday if you won't able to find anyone here close by have a spare one

Last time I ordered one received in 2 business days but let's see maybe someone in community leave close by who have help you out with spare one

@Samianauman, OP said he cannot wait for a shipment and is looking for someone local to supply a SIM card.  In this particular case, I would go with a different provider if timing is mission critical.

As @will13am has implied "desperate times, call for desperate measures". @Gagliano Two ideas:

 

a. Fongo (fongo.com) account with a Vancouver number on wifi, or your current cell data plan; free account and calling across Canada

b. Koodo prepaid $10 SIM, $15 text only, plus talk boosters (5¢/min)

 

Of course, order the PM SIM and change over once it arrives.

That's a long drive from Kelowna to Vancouver specially on these hot few days. I suggest to look for alternatives until you get the pm sim.

Another option to tide you over 'til mid next week would be 7-11 Speak-out. Pick-up of the SIM card at their convenience stores...

However, porting from Koodo, another Telus subbrand, might be smoother.

Re: Urgent BC- Require Public Mobile SIM

Porting from any Canadian mobile carriers should not be an issue. Go with whatever is convenient.. 7-11 or Koodo.

@Samianauman interesting find.  I guess if the referred person stays with PM for 5 months, the kijiji poster breaks even, and any more is gravy.  I'm not sure if this is awful or smart.  Smiley Wink
