$15 plan incmong calls were calculated

Hello, 

I have $15 plan. According to the plan, the incoming calls and toll-free number are free. However, from my usage history, all these calls were accumulated to 100 minutes.  

How to correct these errors?

Thanks

It clearly states the following:
 
  • this plan includes: -
  • - 100 Minutes Canada-Wide Talk + Unlimited Incoming Minutes
  • - 250 MB at 3G speed
  • - Unlimited International Text

However, it still adds the incoming minutes.

Calls are rounded up to the nearest minute and calls to check voicemail from the phone are counted.  You could contact a moderator.

 

Here’s when and how to contact the Moderator Team:

  • Get help with your account the easy way by starting a conversation with our virtual assistant, SIMon. It’ll take you to relevant help articles, or if it’s something more urgent, it can help you submit a ticket to the Moderator Team. Click here to get started.

I tried to go to the site you mentioned.  However, it showed: 

 

 

Did you mean publicmobile.ca?

The site you just tried to visit looks fake. Attackers sometimes mimic sites by making small, hard-to-see changes to the URL.

@Lucyzhou Try clearing your browsers cache. There is nothing wrong with the link provided by @Triguy . Follow his suggestions and you will be OK.

@Lucyzhou 

The "usage history" in self serve always shows ALL calls, whether they use minutes in your plan or not. There is nothing there that indicates if calls used minutes or not.

 

The only way to confirm for yourself if calls use minutes is to refresh your remaining minutes before and after calls on the overview page.

 

Keep in mind that calls are always rounded up to the next full minute. A 5 second call uses 1 minute. A 1m10s call uses 2 minutes. Calls to voicemail use minutes.

 

A $5 500 minute add-on is a great deal as previously mentioned. The minutes never expire until completely consumed.

I don't recall any mention of free calling to toll-free numbers in PM's $15 plan "Offer details", in PM's Service Terms, or in PM's Get Help pages. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

 

Dialing out to toll-free numbers is always "free" in terms of not having to pay any long-distance charges.

But it's still talk time. Not "free" when it's using limited outgoing minutes.

 

Talk time is also rounded up to the next full minute. Even when call duration is just seconds.

Sometimes, rarely, strange quirks in the networks (or maybe legacy accounting systems) will bill specific calls by the second instead of by the minute. But don't bank on it.

"Officially" you area correct... It's not claimed anywhere on Public Mobile's plan details. However, unofficially, currently calls to toll-free numbers do not consume your minutes on a $15 plan. Confirmed myself, and observed by many others when watching consumed minutes on the overview page of self-serve...

@Nezgar 

 

That's great news if it's true. Nobody wants to spend 100 minutes waiting on hold, lol.

 

But is it true in all provinces/territories? Is it true when local towers are Bell/SaskTel equipment? Is it true regardless of where the toll-free number is based or only for certain (Canadian) subsets of the number block?

 

My plan just renewed a few days ago. But I'll try to put this to the test - try to gobble up remaining minutes on some kind of toll-free call - a day or two before my next renew.

Need Help? Let's chat.
