Problem Activating

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin


I am trying to activate the PM SIM card. But when it gets to porting my number from Telus, it just spins for a while before saying that something went wrong, please open a ticket.


Help please!

Try calling the porting assistance number I'll private message you.

Hi @msheaff check with PM CS Agent first in case PM charged you already.  Open ticket with direct message:


After ticket is submitted, make sure to check your Community Inbox(top right corner envelope icon) periodically for response from PM's CS Agent



First check if you were charged for your activation/port.  

If you were charged, leave your Telus SIM card in your phone to see whether you will receive your port  confirmation request.  Sometimes the port will still continue.  


If you were not charged, then you can try again.  Maybe try a different web browser, clear cache or incognito mode.  For porting information needed from Telus, you will need your Telus account number, phone number and account holder name.

I would suggest to establish PM service first, picking temp number.

Then when everything works as expected do your porting.

If you are getting some error messages, try using different browser or Reset network connections.

@msheaff  - we are customers and members like you here on the forum.


Did you enter your payment details at any point?


If not, and you are still having issues try to use this link to use the: Public Mobile Online Activation Assistance



If you did enter your payment details at one point, try your PM SIM card into your phone and see if you have any services? Do a restart of the device, and a reset of the network settings.


If still no services but you were charged contact Public Mobile CSA for assistance.

Same thing happened to me. Chat with the SIMon bot. Type in "activation" it'll give you an option for activation not working. Then select transfer phone number. After that select "Contact us" That will allow you to make a ticket. Make the ticket and then someone can manually port your number for you and select the plan you need. For me it took about 15 minutes for them to respond to my ticket but it can also take up to 48 hours.
