Wow why are people jacking sim cards? Is Public Mobile doing anything to address this?
Is your account okay?
Lots of different scam out there. The scammers get access to your mobile phone and then able to access other online accounts like PayPal, etc. Public mobile is away of this situation, but need to figure out a good solution.
This is a possible simjack. login to your self serve account and click on "change sim" make sure the last 4 digits match the sim card in your phone. if it doesn't match then someone is commiting fraud. Reply to me if the sim numbers do match, so I can help you if it isn’t a simjack, it could just be a service outage.
If they dont match, please
Change your password on your self service account and check and secure all your financials. Change passwords on all other accounts such as email, etc.
Contact moderators and they can restore your services to your account.
Contact a Moderator (Public Mobile representative) for assistance.

Just so you know, sim-jacking is a thing, where someone hacked into you account and switched the sim. This causes service to not be available on your sim while the person who hacked you has full service to your phone number, they can call, text, and use data from your account. Contacting a moderator can fix this by switching your sim back to the one in your phone.
