Re: Why Public Mobile?

  • How did you discover Public Mobile?
  • Why did you choose Public Mobile?
  • If you had a previous provider what were your reasons for switching to Public Mobile?

  • Heard about Public Mobile from a former co-worker who was promoting PM for referral rewards (Nov 2016), but also to get the word out there.
  • I switched to PM for the huge financial savings for almost identical/similar services I was paying more for, without switching physical networks or devices (back then, carrier-locked).  I had no interest in subsidized devices, tabs, etc., and loved the BYOP model.
  • I was on Telus Mobility from 1996-2015, and switched to Koodo (for lower prices) on June 3, 2015 when I got out of my 3-year contract (was about 2.5 years in), since the CRTC put an end to contracts >2 years. In late 2016 to early 2017, I learned about PM and it made sense to switch, since it would be seamless (simply SIM swap). I'd be paying less, while staying on a super-reliable network (in AB). I did leave PM for a 3-month stint on Freedom in Dec 2017-Feb 2018 because of a lifetime 35% F&F discount which made things even cheaper. I hated it (phone was always showing "No Service" or "Away"), so I came running back to PM, and realized I had a good thing.  Here to stay, because everything is a perfect "fit".

I like the loyalty program and will see this trial period how it goes. I am new here and looking forward too transferring phone number from carrier and learning how too do it whole earning rewards

Re: Why Public Mobile?

I appreciate the detailed replies!

 

You usually don't hear good things about your providers online. Public Mobile must be an exceptional service if you're here describing your experiences!

This just reinforces my decision to switch to Public Mobile this month.

 

Thanks,

Ed

You were going to get a postive response because of title. Also, if members are customers, you're likely to hear the good because they would have left if unhappy.

Re: Why Public Mobile?

I found it online when searching for cheap phone plans and I saw the prices I like cheap so this was the best option

And that's the difference. You can leave PM whenever you want. Often with Bell/Rogers you are locked in to staying.

Good point. Not all people praise or complain. I mean that you'll find more praise here about Public Mobile than the Rogers forum.  I also mean that if the title was Why Not Public Mobile, there might be more negative things said.
