Re: Please enter a valid Canadian phone number.!!!!

@Cyprien   You are trying to port in your number during activation? 

 

do you have Koodo Prepaid or Postpaid service?

 

Please note: 

 

Those that wish to transfer an existing number from Koodo Prepaid or PC Mobile will continue to complete their activation with a new number, then reach out to our Moderator team to transfer their existing number to Public Mobile.

@Cyprien 

Make sure that you have the old sim card in your phone when you're porting your phone. You should get a message from your old carrier asking to confirm if you would like to port your number. Your reply should be: YES.

 

The confirmation message can take a few minutes to come in. You have 90 minutes from the time of request.

 

if are you stuck with Transferring your old Phone Number,

In order to transfer a phone number over to Public Mobile - you will need to activate an account with a temporary phone number and after that your contact Customer Support Agent by CS_Agent, for the transfer your number to Public Mobile,

 

Here’s how to contact Customer Support Agent by CS_Agent,

  • or you can send a private message to Customer Support Agent by CS_Agent, by Click Here link
  • You’ll need to be logged in to your Community account for the link to work.

 

  • please include in your message,
  • your phone number,
  • which carrier,

Re: Please enter a valid Canadian phone number.!!!!

.. but don't have high hope.. many responded that the live chat is not very helpful.  They always like to end the conversation by asking the people to come and open a post here in the Community.

 

That live chat is more a sales chat.. not really for  technical support

What live chat are you talking about?  

The one like this is for technical!!Screen Shot 2021-09-12 at 12.38.56 PM.png

 

But I agree...is somewhat useless. 

 

There is another one in a pink box that is for sales. Screen Shot 2021-09-12 at 12.41.23 PM.png

@Cyprien 

There are a couple of reasons you could be getting this message as mentioned if you have a koodo prepaid account you must take a temporary number and contact customer support after activation to transfer your koodo prepaid number to your pm account.

 

You can double check that your number is portable ( but here the mere fact it is from koodo means it is...) here...

Or you could just be glitchy so by following this method your activation will go much smoother...

 

  1. Clear your browser.
  2. Reboot your device.
  3. Open one tab only.
  4. Use secret/incognito mode.
  5. Firefox, chrome, safari or edge work best.

Good luck with your activation and welcome to public mobile!
