Frustrated

I am extremely frustrated by public mobile auto pay options. I had a problem before, which I solved my self. Now again I am having the same issue,  not even the plan is expired and also I paid for US roaming for 10 days and it stop working after 5 days. I cannot get in touch with my family. Above all there is no customer service to talk to, except for emails.

Re: Frustrated

Public Mobile does not have a call center.  Customer service is done via moderator team interaction.  Just click the ? on the lower right corner and start the process and initiate a ticket.  It's not that bad.

@Zaq Maybe if you gave some details, someone here might be able to help you. Barring that everything is done online here. You can contact the mods one of 2 ways. Click the question mark bottom right of the browser as shown in the picture and open a ticket through the automated ticketing system;

or you can contact them through direct messaging at the following link (note this way may take longer for a response);

 

https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/notes/composepage/note-to-user-id/22437

 

In either case you should receive a reply within 48 hours though typically they are much faster. Watch the envelope icon top right for a reply.

Re: Frustrated

@Zaq Customer service cannot be contacted by e-mail. Everyting needs to go through the ticketing system and private messaging on this website.

 

If this is a constant issue, I would suggest manually topping up before payment is due.

Re: Frustrated

@Zaq  The 10 days start from the date of purchase. PM uses T-Mobile and AT&T for roaming so maybe try to manually connecting to the other too see if that fixes the issue.

 

If it's still not working then your only option unfortunately is to submit a ticket to PM.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Frustrated

@Zaq download an app called textnow. you can get a free Canadian number to stay in contact with your friends and family. you need data or wifi. or you can purchase their sim for $10 and you have free calling in the states. you don't even need the roaming add-on.

 

if you have an unlimited calling plan, then you can just forward your pm number to text now and use the text now sim while you are in the US. they also have $20/2gb and $40/unlimited data(throttled after 23gb)

 

check them out here

https://www.textnow.com/

 

@computergeek541 I do not believe that call forwarding can be set if you're in the U.S., even if you have a roaming add-on.

*this would have to be, for a future solution then.

Hi @Zaq 

It seems like autopay issue doesn't go away by itself, you should contact moderators about it as it will repeat. I just pay manually but still receive my rewards they are not affected.

When did you get your add-on? The clock starts ticking the moment you purchase it. If you got it 5 days before that would explain it. If not, you should contact moderators.

TextNow is a great backup while on USA.

To set forwarding you must be in Canada or have roaming
