One my 3rd successful activated public mobile SIM and it won't work in my iphone 8 or any other phone that's already on public mobile network. Tried all the troubleshooting steps available and nothing works. Seems to be a back end issue, no clue.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Phone still says SOS.
@ekilfoyl have you open ticket with PM support yet? As mentioned earlier, it looks like a problem with sim provisioning. Unfortunately, we are just customers here and you need to engage PM support for quick help from them. Please open ticket with them as mentioned on my post above

Check to see if your phone is locked by another carrier. Go to Settings>General>About>Carrier Lock…If it shows No SIM Restrictions then it is unlocked. If is locked, it will show the carrier that locked the phone and you need to contact the carrier to unlock your phone.
If there is No SIM Restrictions, there maybe a provisional issue with your SIM and need to contact a CS_Agent by submit a ticket on SIMon Chatbot bottom of page or private message them on the envelope icon above.

It's rare but your SIM may have failed. Unfortunately replacing it means purchasing a new SIM.
As a precaution confirm the last 4 digits on your current SIM match those in your account profile. A mismatch could mean some is trying to take over your account.

Check to see if there is an Telus outage in your area:

@ekilfoyl any error on the phone status on top? like Sim Not provisioned? No Sim? No network?
since you tried different phones and it is a new activated sim, likely it is a sim card provisioining issue. No worry, it is an easy fix on PM side, you just need to engage them via Chatbot
