US roaming package not working

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

i purchased the US talk/text/data package yesterday for my iPhone 6 OS 12.5.5.


I turned the data roaming on and set it to AT and T, and turned on airplane mode then off to reset, no connection.


I followed the suggestions posted by others on the PM community forum but no luck, it still says ‘searching’, I restarted my phone as well.


Funny/strange thing is when I was in San Fran last week with the same phone the local cell network would show up on my phone and I received a text message from Public Mobile when I crossed into the US, this time I didn’t get a text message and the US cell carrier is not on the top left of my screen (I didn’t purchase a US roaming package when I was in SF to test it, used the wife’s phone).


How do I fix this or get a refund...?


I’m in the US for the next 8 days...


thanks in advance!

Did you try to see if T-Mobile works?

If it doesn’t work, you will need to contact a CS_Agent and explain your issue and ask for a refund.


AT&T stop using 3G on February 22, 2022 but iPhone 6 or newer should still work on their network.

@scharfg - can you confirm your account is still Active? Addons will only work on Active plans.


Is this the same addon you purchased within a 10 day period? There is a glitch that if you do not wait the full 10 days (+24 hours after, i know strange!) that it will not let you add the SAME addon successfully. So, if you cannot wait, then you can purchase a different Roaming addon type, or ask CSA to add it on for you.


Public Mobile Representatives customer support agents (CSA) can be contacted by either two methods, found here:

I had the same problem recently in Montana.  Purchased US Talk, Text and Data and it did not work 75% of the time.  How do i request a refund ?  I find it extremely frustrating trying to get help from Public Mobile and I have been a customer for at least two years.


Hi @wdaxley   did you try to connect to both T-Mobile and AT&T network?  


To request a refund because it wasn't working, open ticket with CS agent, usually they will approve that
