Text message not working with my phone number transferred to Public mobile yesterday

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Please since I transferred my phone number yesterday to Public mobile I am not able to receive and send sms anymore. Please could you check to see what happened while transferring my phone number yesterday? That is why I cannot log in my account since I am not getting the 6 digits code requiring to log in. Thank you

Hi, I have the same issue you’ve described with no help or solution yet.

Mayor / Maire

Public Mobile is dealing with issues when it comes to SMS on Android and iMessages and FaceTime and such. There is no ETA of when it will be resolved. Here is their announcement.

Hey Community,

We are aware that some of you are currently unable to successfully use iMessage and or FaceTime features,  and we understand how frustrating this can be. Our teams are working diligently to find the cause. 

In the meantime, please try troubleshoot steps:
Tap Settings > General > Transfer or Reset [Device] > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and will continue to keep you updated. 

Thank you,

  • Public Mobile Team

Keep an eye on this thread as they SHOULD update it when things are fixed.
