How Does Public Mobile Contact Customers?

RobinPlewes
Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

Here is the scoop. I am not a PM customer and can not put in a support ticket. I tried, it wants my PM phone number, which I do not have.

I live in an area with no cell phone coverage. My phone is turned off 95% of the time so the battery does not kill it's self looking for a signal. Otherwise, the phone is deal when I need it. Turns out my former provider just send me text message that they only keep for 2 days. With my phone turned off for a week or more, I hardly ever see the messages from the provider.

Does anyone know how Public Mobile contacts customers? Do they send an email if there is no answer to a call or text? How often do they text customers? I can find nothing on this and the chat person did not understand the question. Thanks, Robin

I seem to think that the storing of SMS's on provider servers expires after a few days. I seem to think this is standard.

Public Mobile does send texts for promos and account status. They also, on occasion, send emails more for marketing.

It's quite rare in my experience for any kind of company to send or communicate somehow else when they don't get a reply from one avenue.

This being a prepaid service, and you don't connect your phone to the network very often, then it would be more up to you to keep track of each term renewal. There is a "heads up" text from here when the term is soon to expire. Then more texts after successful renewal if on autopay or sufficient balance. But when the time comes that you re-connect to the network then you'll see that your service is active. If not, then it didn't renew for some reason. The catch here is that you have a 90 day window of opportunity to renew a term if your service did not renew.

Not sure what else you need to know from the provider though. Sometimes promos and gifts are notified through text. Sometimes in email. But those are not required to keep the service going.

PM customer service is only by private message on this forum.

 

PM rarely sends out emails, and text messages are infrequent as well. If you're concerned about your service lapsing, you can just sign up for autopay and then you won't have to worry about losing your service from non-payment.

 

You can also check your account status anytime at selfserve.publicmobile.ca

anyway, you do not need to be a PM customer to submit a ticket.   You already have a Community account and that is all you need to open ticket.   Just  direct message via this link and remember to check the Community inbox for their reply:

**Monitor your Community inbox, envelope on the top right, after ticket is opened.  CS Agent will reply and work with you  via messaging there

Usually they do not, or if they do it is to tell you to contact them - via Tickets.

 

Do they send an email if there is no answer to a call or text?

I do not believe they would send emails, only for promotions or activation welcome emails.

 

How often do they text customers?

When payments are coming due, made, rewards are applied to payments, promotional offers, things like that.

 

I can find nothing on this and the chat person did not understand the question.

You don't need to be a customer to submit a ticket to Public Mobile Customer Support Agents (CSA).

@softech already provided the link that can work for you.

Also, same as Method #2 in attached link:

PM does send promotional emails. At least I get them...

PM does not communicate with customers over emails in case of account issues.

PM will send customer SMS 3 days before renewal day regarding payment

PM will send customer SMS after successful renewal informing how much rewards they accumulated and that bill has been paid.

You do not have to create a ticket in order to communicate with PM staff. Send them private message as per link provided in one of above messages.
