Did you get a new number or did you port your Telus number? How long has it been since you activated a new number or ported the Telus number?

 

And what are you seeing currently when you try to make a call?

It should be easier to port in from Telus rather than from any other provider.

What is your brand and model of phone? Do you see Public mobile on your phone? Do you have any of your services? Calls in/out? Texts in/out? Mobile data?

 

 

 

 

To contact customer support click below:

To pre-verify your account include your full name, address, email, phone # and 4 digit acct pin #.

And you don’t just mean that you are still not receiving calls (number hasn’t ported yet) but everything else works?

@lwangars61  - did you complete the Public Mobile SIM card activation process either in-store or online, found here: https://publicmobile.ca/en/on/portal/activation

If you did complete the activation, then confirm you were charged successfully for this.

 

Try one or more of the below:

*turn off your phone, then reboot

*removing your SIM, then reinserting it

*go into airplane mode, then going back to regular mode

*reset network settings on your device

*Check if your phone is blacklisted here: https://www.devicecheck.ca/check-status-device-canada/

 

 

Did you leave the Telus SIM card in your phone to accept the PORT via SMS/text.

If you missed this 90 minute window, submit a ticket via this link to re-initiate the port:
