Transfer of number - Sim & Activation form

Hi guys! I just activated my SIM that i purchased this afternoon, and ported my old number to my new sim. I am able to call and recieve calls but both incoming and outgoing texts are not working. I just got a text saying to go ot the 'Contact Us' section of the website, which i cannot find, and fill in the SIM and Activation online form. Is anyone able to help me?

Don't look for contact us form. There ia no form.  That mesaage gets sent when porting failed. Get account no. from old carrier and send message to Moderator_Team. https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/notes/composepage/note-to-user-id/22437

@jacquerowe, this situation is a bit strange.

 

You are able to call and receive calls? This implies that the port was successful.

 

Your texts are not functional? This implies that either texting is not included in your plan or there is a technical problem with your plan.

 

You got a text saying to go to the 'Contact Us'? As far as I can tell, Public Mobile does not send out such texts.
Can you tell us who sent this text and how did you get it if your texting isn't functioning?

I don't deny that the incoming calls working is strange for a failed port.  However, Public does send that text message to customers when a number transfer request trips up.

@computergeek541, this is good to know.

 

@jacquerowe, if it was indeed a failed port, then outgoing calls and outgoing texts should work.
And there would be no incoming texts or calls, except with your old provider.

Not so straight. If you have NOT created you account with Community.Publicmobile.ca, then you have to do that first. Then you are in the system to send and receive private message. Good luck
