Need Help!!

So i am deciding to switch my Son's Pay as you go plan with rogers to PM. I am going to get a sim card and activate it with a Temporary number for the first month. After the first month if i like it could i be able to port the number over from rogers? Another question, The rogers account is under my name so would i need to make my son's PM account under my name for the port to work? or could i create the PM account under his name. Also i have a question about auto-pay. When i link my credit card to his account would it matter if the cardholder name is different from the account name? I think im going to pick up a SIM tomorrow at Walmart to try with a temp number. last question, If i activate it at Walmart could i signup for auto-pay with the employee at Walmart.

You can put the account under his name and use your credit card info. You can port a number under your name to an account under his name.

 

As for porting the number to an already set up account, you'll have to contact a moderator to do that and there is a continuing issue with that!

Re: Need Help!!

HI @ArmandoUrso 

 

Q: After the first month if I like it could I be able to port the number over from rogers?

A: Yes,  You will be able to port the number from rogers at any time,  as long as rogers account is still active.

 

Q: The rogers account is under my name so would i need to make my son's PM account under my name for the port to work? 

A:  You do not have to put the PM's account under your name. When you request the port, Just make sure you  fill the  full details of the  port (name on rogers bill, Account number with rogers).

 

Q: When i link my credit card to his account would it matter if the cardholder name is different from the account name?

A:  It does NOT matter who's credit card is used to set up auto-pay or pay Bills :cathappy:

 

Q: If i activate it at Walmart could i signup for auto-pay with the employee at Walmart.

A: Yes you can, you can also come home and set up auto pay and the credit of 2$ will be applied to your account :cathappy:

 

Also, Do not forget to use Refetal code for a  10$ credit, you can provide that when signing up at Walmart. If you order your sim online, You will get it for only 5$ right now.  Here is the link

 

 

Cheers

Re: Need Help!!

Does Walmart usually provide the sim card for free if you activate it with the employee? Because if not then i might as well just buy activate it at home.

Re: Need Help!!

@ArmandoUrso  how old is your son?  You can always set up the account in your name since you will be paying for it. When your son is ready to pay for it himself, switch it over. If you activate at Walmart, the autopay credit card 2ill be added later when you create a self service account. Here's am article on activating https://www.publicmobile.ca/en/bc/get-help/articles/activation-account-set-up .

Don't forget to use a referral code to get a one time $10 activation credit. If you don't have one, private message anyone here and ask for theirs.

Used to be. There seems to be a problem with it now. Or it's a false-port protection.

The autopay thing has a couple points. If you select autopay at activation then you'll see a $2 credit in your Available Funds shortly thereafter. And also the $2 reward in your rewards area. Then your next renewal will get $4 off for autopay. Then the renewal after that will just get the regular $2.

If you don't set up autopay at activation then you will only get the $2 reward at your next renewals.

Re: Need Help!!

@ArmandoUrso You will be able to do it eventually, but for now, the reality is port on activation or change number and port thru a moderator. Good luck!

 

Contact your local Walmart by phone and find out what they're offering. Mine offers nothing (in fact they try to avoid pm activations I feel) but others have offered free Sims I understand.
