I've spent over an hour yesterday evening and tried again this morning, but I can't activate my daughters sim card because it won't accept my credit card(s). I've tried different cards and same issue.
I think I've used up the value of the refer-a-friend promo discount in my time already.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes the postal code is for credit card, but will not match the area of the phone number since our community isn't listed. Not sure if that matters.
Hi @lesmfunk , this should not matter.
edit, hopefully you have gotten this activate to work after waiting. If not, try the online activation portal to activate: https://services.telus.com/chat/publicmobile/chat-pm.html?portal=publicmobile&language=en
I was talking about the credit card entry screen. There have been rare reports here from people that have said that some of that other information needs to match the credit card. But rare. And yes the city choices are limited even just for selecting a new phone number.
But see what happens in an hour and using private mode and desktop browsing.
If Public Mobile locks this function, usually time will rectify it:
Wait one hour.

Open incognito tab.
