hi to renew early you will need to contact a moderator to help you, can do so by clicking the chat bubble at the lower right corner,to avoid going around in circles with Simon say that you want a human to speak to, a ticket will then be generated briefly mention your issue 

 you should get a response between 2 to 48 hours a reply should show up in your little envelope in the top right corner, you can also  send a private message to the Moderators by clicking here.

you can also buy a data add on to get you to your next due date

Hello @frenchy93 

 

If you are looking to add more data then see your SELF SERVE about Purchasing an Add-On:

Note that purchasing an add-on is a two step process.

You should be able to use it instantly.

1-First you need to add the $ to your account and

2-then add the add-on to your account.

Don't forget to restart your phone.

*You can make the purchase via self serve account or by calling 611 on your phone.

Hey @frenchy93 !

 

Unfortunately Public Mobile no longer offers the pay per 90 days (3 months) plan options anymore. Everything currently is based on a 30 day (1 month) plan service that continues month-to-month. 

 

If you want to renew your plan early, you may have to speak with a moderator from the Moderator Team about that. To talk to the Moderator Team you can first talk to the Virtual Assistant, SIMon, to request to speak with a human. Here is a link to the Chatbot SIMon:

 

Link: https://publicmobile.ca/en/ab/chatbot

 

If you mention "Human" into the chatbot, you should surely be connected to someone who can manually renew your plan early for you. 

 

You mentioned that you have already added funds to your account balance which is great! You're one step closer! If you need more data before your current monthly billing cycle is over, you can purchase one or more data add-ons!

 

If you don't have any data at all at the moment, you can purchase data add-ons using *611 on your smartphone. 

 

Here is a link with instructions on how to do so: https://www.publicmobile.ca/en/on/get-help/articles/purchase-add-ons-through-611

 

If you can access your self-serve account at the moment then here is a link with some instructions on how to purchase data add-ons in your self-service account: https://www.publicmobile.ca/en/on/get-help/articles/purchase-add-ons-through-self-serve

 

Hope this helps! 🙂

Cheers

Thanks all, 

I messaged the moderator team over a day ago and haven’t heard anything back.

@frenchy93 The mods appear to be a bit behind lately. Give it another day at least.

@frenchy93  Did you use the chat bot and categorize it properly so the mods would get it faster?

 

Easiest way is open chat bot.

 

Type Human 

Click account specific question 

Click no I need a human now 

Click submited a ticket 

It will ask for community login.

 

Then you're brought to the other category.

Then click "Early Renewal Request" and follow the rest of the steps. 

 

Ensure you have a balance to cover the plan.

Thanks that helps, sucks they got rid of the 3 month thing, the public plans no longer work for me.

If your account is not fully deactivated and you're on a 90 day plan then you can still keep it going. The fact that you can log in says you're not fully deactivated. You can't make any changes to it though. How do the current plans not work for you?

 

If it has become fully deactivated then the account is gone.

 

The 90 day plan worked for some, but it was confusing for others. Near the end it wasn't any kind of bargain. Just that you could spread the data bucket out over the term rather than constrained to just 30 days.
