International calling-phone issues?

I purchased international  minutes some weeks ago but I cannot call USA numbers from my Samsung phone.  Is there a setting I am missing on my phone or  in my account?  My husband has a  different phone and has no problem calling same number

Does your husband have one of the older Christmas long distance give away add ons?  

Which plan are you on presently?

There is a special promo plan available right now 

$34/month for 50 GB US/Canada data.

Includes long distance calling to US and US roaming.

@scanner - Does your husband have a Canada-US plan? It includes free calling to the states unlimited.

Also maybe try putting a 1 /+1 as you may not reach the person you intended to dial.

So why does my husband have no problem calling USA, same add-ons, same USA number?

Hey @Dunkman 

I have all those INTL minutes given to us by PM for the More The Merrier promo's and I'm able to use those INTL minutes calling Canada and the US. Are those INTL minutes we get from the MTM promo different than buying the addon?

 


HI@Chalupa_Batman 

the bonus one from Merrier and the purchased one are different, that's why one is 500 mins and one is 300 mins to avoid confusion

the Merrier one can call less countries but include Canada and US, the purchased on have more countries

Merrier:

  • International calling covers the following countries: Canada, United States, China, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Italy, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Spain, Thailand, United Kingdom, and Venezuela

Long distance addon

  • Add-On included countries: Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Venezuela. Calls must originate from Canada.

@Chalupa_Batman 

Yes, the XMAS international calling minutes add on included United States and Canada.  If I remember correctly. even the previous versions of the long distance add on included USA.  However, the recent international long distance add ons do not include USA calling.

Hi @scanner,

If you bought the international add-on specifically for USA, you should try to open a ticket through the Chatbot:
https://widget.telus.tiia.ai/publicmobile/publicmobile.html (and then type: Customer Support Agent)

Or, if you are having trouble with the Chatbot try sending a private message to: 

https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/notes/composepage/note-to-user-id/22437
(note: you will need to be logged into your Community account for this link to work)

Hopefully they will understand and be able to switch you to the add-on you actually need.

EDIT: @scanner There are certain numbers in the US that can't be called from Public Mobile which is odd. I'm sure someone here can share the area codes that can't be called. It's here somewhere.

The international roaming long distance add on actually does not include USA.  You will need to purchase the separate USA long distance add on.

300 International Long Distance Minutes

Countries included in international long distance include: Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Venezuela
