$15 plan with Unlimited Incoming Calls-need clarification

For the $15 plan, you get 100 min Canada-wide talk time and Unlimited Incoming Calls. Does it mean when your friends call you from the States, it is FREE ie there is NO charge for you and no minutes will be deducted from your allowable 100 min Canada-wide talk time? thanks a lot!

  1. All incoming calls are free. Your friends can call you from the US and no minutes deducted. Your 100 minutes is for outgoing calls in Canada. If you want to call your friends in the US you need an add on.

That is correct.  You have UNLIMITED INCOMING calls no matter where they originate from as long as you are located in Canada.

@dotchu, the cheapest plan from Public Mobile allows you to call out anywhere in Canada, but you only get 100 minutes. If you call someone for 25 seconds, your call gets bump up to a minute. 

When you receive a call, it's unlimited. So, maybe text your friends to call you so you can save your minutes for when you truly need them!

Thanks JoyLuck. That is a good deal isn't it? What about incoming calls from Canada or even international? any charges/minutes deducted? any time restrictions? Is the connection quality good? Sorry about all these questions. Am thinking of switching .

thanks Mpcdesign. It is clear now.

All incoming calls from anywhere in the world are free as long as you are in Canada. No minute deductions. No time restrictions. I cannot comment on the quality of international calls as I have not received any while on PM.

@dotchu  Public mobile is owned by telus so it is on the telus network with excellent comprehensive coverage across Canada with the shared telus/bell network. Call quality would only diminish if a international call or any incoming call was on an inferior network or a poor quality phone. There are never any additional charges, overages or surprise bills because you pay for your service ahead of time. If it's not included it just won't work. Many people on the $15 plan also purchase the $5/500min add on that is Canada wide calling and remains on your account (rolling over every month) until completely used. It gives assurance if you use all of your plans100 outgoing minutes you won't get cut off during an important call. At $0.01 per minute its a bargain. Once most people get used to calling you the add on could last a year or more unless you talk a lot!

@dotchu  To save more, add the TextNow voip app and use it via Wifi to make / receive / send calls and texts to Canada and the United States for free. You can also use it as I do to check my voicemail from my own phone without using the minutes from the PM plan. Simply dial your PM phone number - reject the call when it rings (this sends the call to voicemail) - press the * key to allow you to enter your password. - enter - and viola you are in your voicemail account - Hang up when you are finished. No minutes used. Thank you
