text and calls not being received

I activated Public Mobile for my son yesterday.  He is not receiving any texts from me.  Also, my calls to him are going straight to voicemail.  He is on the $15 plan.

Re: text and calls not being received

@dianeellsworth, did you issue a number port from a different carrier when you activated?  Usually an incomplete port results in inability to receive text and calls.  That said, if a port was initiated, it should have completed by now.

@dianeellsworth 

If you chose a new number, something went wrong with actvatino process.  Maybe try re-booting the phone.  

 

Also, try the SIM card in another unlocked phone to determine whether hardware issue versus PM service problem.  

 

If activation issue, likely need to contact moderator.

@dianeellsworth Ideas:

a) What is make/model of his phone? If iPhone have him turn off iMessages & Facetime then turn on afer a few minutes.

b) Try calling his number again immediately after the first fails. If successful, suggests he has call blocking activated.

c) Have him send you a text and reply directly to it.

Thank you.  I was having the same issue.  I restarted my phone and it's working now.

Re: text and calls not being received

@dianeellsworth, I hope it was an accidental block.
