Hello! Community


1.  Can I continue to use my Public Mobile phone to receive/send SMS text messages when I am overseas?

2.  Can I receive calls on my mobile?

3.  Do I need to purchase an out-of-country plan in order to use my mobile when away from Canada?

 

 

I appreciate your advice.  Thanks!

Unfortunately, Public mobile does not offer international country roaming (except for the USA - 10 roaming packages).  Unable to receive calls, texts in foreign countries.  You will need to purchase an overseas SIM card/plan.

2.  Can I receive calls on my mobile?...Same as above

3.  Do I need to purchase an out-of-country plan in order to use my mobile when away from Canada?...Yes

PM only has a 10 Day US roaming option...no other countries.

 

 

I appreciate your advice.  Thanks!
