Hi @Ataasbagh 

 

They can take up to 3 weeks with current mail delivery delays.

 

If you need one sooner, recommend going to local mobile shop (walmart, london drugs, etc).   They may have them in stock.  

 

You can also check out canadiancellsupplies.com    If you're near one of their stores in the Toronto area, they have Public Mobile SIM cards - usually cheaper than others.

Re: Receiving Simcard

There have been delays due to the pandemic and it usually takes two to three weeks.

The moderators are aware of the delays.

Hey Community,

 

Due to current COVID-19 measures and high shipping volumes, delivery times are expected to be longer than usual. 

 

For customers looking to purchase SIM cards, please plan accordingly and allow enough time for shipping in the case of delays.

 

We appreciate your patience very much!

If you need a sim right then you might want to purchase one from a local retailer.

Check eBay for 99 cents some sell referral code only but keep looking and you will find SIM cards for 99 cents too. Also some are free on Craigslist.

I'd recommend running into Walmart and getting started now.  Sell the other card once it comes in the mail.

I’d keep the card and use it for a referral. Even if you give it away for a referral, you will receive more in rewards than what you paid for it.

I recommend against this.  If the person already has cell phone service (even if it's at another carrier), having someone go to the store to activate a new cell phone plan should absolutely be discouraged at this time in many locations across the country.  The SIM card will eventually come. Especially during this day and age, visits to the store should be minimized.

Re: Receiving Simcard

Good point. But you can get one faster by mail. I have a suspicion that the delay of receiving one from PM is not a mail or courier problem vs a lengthy processing time.

Curbside pickup?  Go to place where they'll sell you the SIM card as a stand-alone purchase, rather than require activation in-store.

Re: Receiving Simcard

I’m not sure if delivery can be blamed on pandemic…
A letter was sent to me from a city located 7 km from me and it took one month to be delivered. I order SIM cards from Canadian Cell Supplies located 112 km from me and they were delivered by regular post in 5 days.

Go figure! 😀
