Did not wait for SMS message from previous provider before taking out old SIM. Now have one way service (outcalls) only. Phone says PM, but bill is still charged to old provider. Catch 22. Can't notify PM of this because they have no customer service. Can't get help from previous provider because no longer have SIM card from them. Getting ready to cancel all services and go with third provider! Is there a way out of this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If your previous carrier was Telus or Koodo, PM can port your number over to PM.
If not those carriers then you have 2 options:
- Purchase a new SIM from your previous carrier and reactivate your account.
- pick a new number.
If you decide to go with another carrier…you still need the old active SIM to port over your old number.
A critical part to porting is to receive a text from your old provider and you have to reply YES within 90 mins. If you are not receiving calls and text on your PM sim card, and only outgoing calls, wok then you might have missed the step and hence porting was not completed
