Not receiving/sending text fourth day after transferring my number from Fido to Public mobile

Hello Everyone,

Not receiving/sending texts, fourth day after transferring my number from Fido to Public mobile. Any help would be appreciated

I went through the same thing. Joined PM on May 15 2024. Everything else works great, used the Canada-US plan on a trip to US for 3 days, no issues, but we were using What's App for those few days. 

Got home and found out that I cannot send or receive group text or text with attachments. After a few days of back and forth with PM Help Line I was contacted by Tech Support. Found out my TCL20S does not support full texting features on PM, and model I have cannot be changed in settings to accept Public mobile settings. Wish they told me that before switching to PM.

Did you reply to the text from Fido confirming with YES that you are porting over to PM? There is a 90 minute window for you to reply or porting will be in limbo.

If this is the case, you will need to contact a CS_Agent to restart the porting process.

So submit a ticket on the Chat button. Staff hours are 9:00am to 10:00pm EST.


There was an issue with texting after porting, but it was supposedly resolved.

You may need to contact customer service agent to get your account fixed.

Yes I tried all that still not working. Calls and data are working 



Does talk work?  What about data?  Did you port your number?

Maybe try a reboot your phone.  Network reset of phone.

 P.S. I will move your post to Support section
