Try using a different web browser. Use incognito mode. Clear cache files.

I know it sounds hooky, but try.

Yes, it's a serious business.

 

It's part of the TELUS group of companies, so very well established.

 

Is it a NEW SIM card purchased from an authorized retailer?   Did the amount get charged to your payment card?  (check the transactions)

 

Try rebooting device and resetting network connections.

 

If you're porting from another provider, be sure to leave your OLD SIM card in the device to receive the authorization text to enable the port to occur.

Re: Public Mobile

When you activated, did you get a green check mark when you entered the last 9 digits of your SIM into the web site?

@Djole  at what point are you having an issue with during the activation pages...found here: https://publicmobile.ca/en/bc/portal/activation

 

 

If you past the payment section, insert the Public Mobile SIM card into your phone and see if you have any services.

 

Having issues? Try one or more of the below:

*turn off your phone, leave off for a few minutes, then reboot

*removing your SIM, then reinserting it

*go into airplane mode, then going back to regular mode

*reset network settings on your device

*Is your phone locked? Contact your previous provider to unlock it for you. You will need your imei number, dial *#06# to get it.

*Check if your phone is blacklisted here: https://www.devicecheck.ca/check-status-device-canada/

*manually select the 3G / WCDMA ONLY network in your Mobile Connections area in your settings (temporarily) for dropping or unable to make incoming/outgoing calls

 

 

If you did not get past the payment section, close out completely and open a tab in incognito mode, then try the activation of the Public Mobile SIM again.

Re: Public Mobile

@Djole 

note: and very important to you know about transfer old number to Public Mobile

Make sure the old SIM card in your phone when you're Transfer your number. You should get a SMS message from your old carrier asking to confirm if you would like to Transfer 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.

Re: Public Mobile

@Djole 

Did you proceed thru the activation process and have your credit card charged your plan amount? Are you getting a message on your phone along the lines of sim card not detected?. Is it just not working at all? Can you test the sim in another unlocked phone? If you went thru the activation process and you have no services working the sim card could have just not provisioned correctly upon activation.

 

If you suspect this contact customer support by clicking on the chat bubble at the bottom right corner of your screen and type "sim card not provisioned upon activation" and "human" and follow the prompts to submit your ticket via Simple--Simon. Keep an eye on the envelope icon at the top right corner of your screen next to your avatar for a little number to pop up indicating a reply from a CSA. Responding promptly will speed up service times.
