Does public mobile work in Europe?

I travel to Europe every year.

I buy a simcard there (a new phone number), it is very cheep.

But I need to switch back to public network simcard sometimes, just to access my old number to get the safety codes to log in to secure sites, like Amazon busines site and such.

Is there a support for public mobile in Europe, or will there be in the future?

PM does not offer roaming except in the US.

So I am told Public mobile will only work in Canada and States.

Yes, you can send and receive text/calls  internationally while in Canada or US only.

@EMCZ  Agreed the rates in Europe are really cheap Smiley Happy

Usually those sites allow you to setup temp one-time codes or adding an alternate number for verification purposes. I don't think there are any plans for PM to support this in Europe or anywhere else other than NA.

Amazon doesn't have an alternate security number. They ask for a copy of your drivers licence to proof that it's you. And it can take up to 2 days. 

I will just have to remember the next time, before I fly, to switch my simcard to the EU, and change al the security code numbers on all sites before I fly.

I wish I knew this before switching to Publicmobile.

Just curious did you try using textNow for those codes? They give you Canadian phone number that you could tie to your accounts prior to leaving and maybe remove once you're back. You get also unlimited calls and texts. I believe it's worth trying out.

Cheers

The textnow app would seem to be an option, as it will work on Cellular and WiFi data.

 

The adds are annoying, really annoying.  But what do you expect for free?

 

@EMCZ, just remember although PM is available for use in the US, you will need to add roaming add-ons to do so.

@stonechucker is there maybe a paid version or an ad-free premium subscription to remove them?  Just curious.
