Re: How do I know if my phone will work on the Public Mobile network?

Hello @rajibborua,


Can you confirm if your phone is unlocked? The IMEI verification link only confirms that the phone can be used on our network but you have to make sure the phone is unlocked. 

Can you confirm?

 

Thanks,

 

Shazia.

Re: How do I know if my phone will work on the Public Mobile network?

@rajibborua As Shazia indicated your phone is almost certainly locked to Rogers. You can unlock it through Rogers or other providers such as http://protechparts.ca/products/rogers-fido-iphone-unlock-1-24hrs?variant=909087775, ($65) which I have used successfully twice.

 

You should also be aware that getting data set up on iPhone 4 cannot be done manually; likely you will need to use http://www.unlockit.co.nz/unlockit/ from your phone's browser.

 

If can afford it you could consider upgrading tp iPhone 5 or 5s from https://publicmobile.getorchard.com or https://www.getorchard.com

 

Good luck.

Thanks Shazia and Luddite!

 

My phone is not worthy enough to factory unlock. I may try my sim with my friend' s koodo iphone 4s. If it works, then problem solved!

Re: How do I know if my phone will work on the Public Mobile network?

@rajibborua a phone that was workng on Koodo (or Telus Mobility) previously *should* work on Public Mobile without any need to unlock, so your friend's phone sounds like a good solution!

Hi,

I wanted to use my Iphone 4 which was previously used by rogers sim. I checked my IMEI with PM's website which indicates that I can use my PM sim.

 

But My iphone does not get PM's network after inserting PM's sim.

 

Can you please suggest me what to do? 


Hi @rajibborua,

 

I want to confirm: Do you have an active account tied to that SIM? Because if not, then you will not be able latch on to the Telus/PM network using that SIM.

Hello,

At first glance, I would say "yes" to your phone working on the PM network.

Better still, why not go to www.willmyphonework.net to check there for yourself.

Cheers.

Hi, 

 

I'm currently a PM client and I want to change phone. Howerver, I would like to know if this new phone I'm thinking of buying will work? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16875606072 

 

Thank you and have a great day.
