Judging by previous posts, it seems like it's a porting issue. Opened a ticket almost a week ago, still no response from Public. Made the request to port a month ago. Received a text from old provider 3 weeks ago that they received the request, to contact them if it was made in error. Can someone from Public please help us?

Did you call the porting number? Old sim in phone? Reply yes?

This whole thing has been a joke. Absolute amateur hour. Easily could have been resolved sooner if I could have spoken to someone by telephone.

I disagree with the above suggestion to do another transfer while one is still "active". If you had been given another random phone number then sure. But for now maybe call the number in the link below and put your old sim in a phone and confirm the transfer text.

Ok, I guess I have to start another ticket.

@DHTupperware It has been a month already, so you have to re-request porting anyway (assuming you are staying and want to port your number here)

 

Login to My Account, go to Profile page, click Change Phone number.  Then click "Transfer Phone number" (the last tab on the screenshot below) and enter the information

Please provide account number instead of IMEI as the old carrier info.

 

After you requested porting, put your old sim card back to the phone.  Your old provider will send you a text shortly and you need to reply YES within 90 mins.  

 

Let us know if you do not get the text after 4 hours, there is a porting team you can contact in that case

Unfrotuantely, it was mistaken advice.  There isn't any reason that the Public Mobile CSA couldn't have given you that information. When number porting fails, a report is sent back to the requesting carrier giving notfication of that and that also comes with an exact reason.

It was a month ago. I don't remember now, it was so long ago. Meanwhile Public is charging me for a month I never used.

Is your account now using a new random phone number? Is your old provider sim and account still working? Have you/they kept that account alive?

@DHTupperware   Maybe you provided them the wrong info?

 

did you provide them IMEI or account number?

There wasn't any reason for you to contact your old carrier about this.  Public Mobile could and should have giiven you that information. When you're tryihng to port a number, the new carrier (Public Mobile in this case) is responsible for getting everything done. That includes any troubleshooting and communicatinon with the old carrier.  You're going to need to open another ticket with Public Mobile.

The message from the previous provider said only to contact them if the porting request was made in error.

@DHTupperware , just to let you know, this is the number transfer process.  The number transfer request is submitted from the Public Mobile end, but an acknowledgement must also be done on the other end which is why your old provider was asking.  A CSA will be able to sort things out for you as already suggested.
