@LinuxUser, one number change is allowed every 30 days.  This restriction cannot be overridden, not even by the moderators.  Unfortunately, you will need to wait 30 days to make the next change.

Have you looked into registering your phone number with the National Do Not Call List?

Link - https://lnnte-dncl.gc.ca/en

By registering your number on this list, legit Canadian telemarketers take note to remove your number or call you only if they meet the exceptions (e.g. during elections, newspaper subscriptions).

You might also consider installing an app to block numbers that are known to be spam calls.

Hope this helps!

Instead of changing to a number provided by PM, you can port a number from other provider you have.  I changed a number once.  After 20 days, I ported a number to PM without the 30 days restriction.

I firmly believe that telemarketers use the national do not call registry as their phone book.  I have every number in the registry and it doesn't help one bit.  Many of these robo calls come from out of country operations and they don't care what laws we have here.  I learn to have thick skin and use the blocking feature in my calling app.  Speaking of phone book, I have pretty thick one in my blocked number list.

One way is to port an old number you had , can be cell or land line. You can easily port that number to your existing Public Mobile account by logging in , this will take you to the overview page. From there on the far right side of the page you will see MY PROFILE  section. Look for "change my number" and click on it. This will take you to a screen which will ask if you want a new one or port in your number from another provider. Click on port in from another provider. From there follow the on screen instructions. You will need to have your old account # . Hoping this helps. 

Only other way is to wait 30 days from last new number and then do the process of getting a new number all over . Remember when it generates a new number , you have a selection of at least 3 #s. If you don't like either you can click on generate more.

u have to wait untill the end of the month. But in the meantime consider 3rd party apps that generate numbers for u, if ur **bleep** about people knowing ur number.
