Koodo and Publicmobile are sister company, your phone will work and the coverage will be the same.
3 differences are
Don't forget to use your friend's referral
I just saw here a post saying this weekend you can get free sim and second month free in Walmart (you can use your friend's referral there too)
Use different email to register to avoid issues as Koodo and Publicmobile share the system, later when your Koodo account shuts down you can change it. You can use email aliases as well works pretty well
If you a with Koodo prepaid you will have to get temporary number and ask moderators to transfer your number
Don't forget to remove your credit card from Koodo system just in case
If your Koodo number gets suspended due to no payment you can still transfer it to Publicmobile since it's in-house move
Hope it helps
Welcome to Publicmobile
That's funny you mentioned this because I edited my reply shortly after I posted so you must have seen my original post and not my edited reply:
"When you activate your new Public Mobile SIM card, do not create a temporary new number (one of the options) if you are coming from a Post-paid plan.
1. Input your current number - DO NOT create a temporary new number IF you are on a Post-paid plan with Koodo."
But to answer your question, most people I know have been with Koodo or are currently with Koodo and they are all on a postpaid plan. So I was under the assumption that @Kitsa might also be on a postpaid plan as well.
Koodo is a sister of telus , I was with telus and switched over with no problems,got to keep my old number and they also cancelled my telus devices. Easy sim set up as well.
Why do you specify to use debit for auto top-up? I'm on auto top-up using my credit card and everything went through without a hitch.
Only Visa, Mastercard, and Amex credit cards work. For debit, only Visa Debit (sometimes Mastercard Debit) works. Regular debit card can't be used.
