Changing Plans Question.

Hi everyone (and anyone who can answer TWO questions)

A) I am currently on the $30. for 30 day plan but I see I can have a $25/mth plan and double my data from 500mb to 1gig. I have just (happily) crossed over my one year with Public mobile and am receiving my $1/mth discount.  

Does changing plans cancel my $1./mth discount and reset me back to 0 months. (It would appear that it doesn't but better ask first right?) My monthly renewel is up in a few days so I would appreciate any answers a.s.a.p.

 

B) The plan above (both options) use a 3G network. If I purchased a new phone that claims to have only "4G" would it still work on public mobile. It specifically does not mention 2G or 3G. Its Network mode: GSM/WCDMA ?  (my guess is that it will still run on 3G but I won't be getting 4G speeds, still, I could use some clarification because all of this is not my forte)

 

Thank you in advance to the great family of advisors and gurus for your help.

Sincerely, Greg

@Greg45  for the first question you won't lose the loyalty discount, you can log in and click on change plan to the plan you want and click on next renewal so it will change in a few days on your renewal day.

For the 2nd question what kind of phone is it exactly? You should look it up on willmyphonework.net 

If it's only 4g the text and data will work but not the calls because public mobile uses 3g for all calls!

A no. All rewards will stay.

B your phone must have 3g support for calling so no. As for data. If you choose LTE, you will receive throttled 3mbs data.

 

What phone are you looking at?

You can switch without worrying, it's the tome you spent with pm that counts

For the phone, many advertised 4g also do have 3g frequencies. You should look it up, 3g is important for talk and text, you would need 850 and 1900 mhz

@Greg45A. Changing your plan will not affect your discount.

B. Public Mobile works on LTE ie 4G but throttled to "3G like" speed, unless you had an old grandfathered full speed LTE plans. Actually if you switch to 3G mode, there is a possiblity depending on network condition you will run faster than the throttled LTE speed.

 

The network mode for 3G should be UMTS

Thank you for the quick reply 🙂

I rarely use the "phone" feature but I do like it for my apps and MS Office (excel), but that said, if you can't make a phone call in an emergency... what good is the phone?  The only thing I am sure of is not giving up Public Mobile!  The phone search will have continue...

Thank you again!

Thank you for your replay 🙂

It's just a knock-off from China (P31pro) for $100.00 plus $17. delivery on Wish.

It's got Android 9.1, 6.3" screen, (avg battery @ 4800Mah) camera 8/16,  6gb/128gb 1960x1080 HD screen.... I don't use it a lot but I really need a better version of android than my 3 yr old 6.1 😞

@Greg45 if you are looking for recommendations i was recommend umidigi a5 pro recently and it has amazing specs and good review, Amazon had it for 170cad, but the person who recommended it said if i shop around i can find it for up to 50 less
