Just switched from current provider today to Public and have no service…can’t send or receive calls. Has been over 3 hours since I made the change. Have also followed the suggestions from the bot to no avail. 
Any suggestions?

I think you mean outgoing calling?

It normally takes about 2.5 hours to complete the porting once you replied to the text with YES with your old SIM in the phone.

If you didn’t reply to the text within 90 minute window then porting will be cancelled but your old SIM should still work.

You will need a CS_Agent to restart the porting process but leave the old SIM in your phone.

If you properly activated your SIM you should have at least incoming outgoing (thanks @darlicious) service since PM would assign temporary number to your account no matter if you ported your old number or not.

And if you opened PM account (on-line) you should be able to see if your service is active and what number you have.

Did you try to power off your phone? Sometimes a reboot will make the switch in carrier

Do you have any services at all on your pm Sim card? Text? Data? Can you see public mobile on the top of your phone's home screen? If not it's likely your pm Sim card did not provision correctly upon activation. Use the links provided by @softech to contact customer support to fix this for you.



Confirm if you have service on your pm Sim card first before you reinitiate your port request or you will be left without any working services at all.




cannot even make outgoing calls??


please try to reseat the sim card or try it on another phone to confirm.   But it is very likely a sim provisioning issue.  It is an easy fix for PM , please open a ticket with them
