Here at Public Mobile, you bring your own phone and activate it using a Public Mobile SIM card. While we don’t sell phones, there are a number of ways you can get a phone that suits your needs. You just need to make sure that your phone is unlocked and compatible with our Canada-wide 4G LTE network.
Your phone should work on our network, if your phone specifications match the following bands:
|Form Factor||Bar with touchscreen|
|Memory||32 GB; 1 GB RAM|
|External Memory||Up to 32 GB (microSD)|
|Network||UMTS 850/1900/2 100; GSM 850/900/1800/1900|
|Operating System||Android 8.0 (Oreo)|
|Processor||1.1 GHz quad-core|
@Mike-m, I assume that it is this phone you are referring to. It should work with Public Mobile on 3G only. There does not appear to be 4G capability on the phone. If the SIM is not being detected, you may need to try reseating it a couple of times. It could be a faulty SIM reader. If the SIM is detected and there is no network connection, you need to check the self serve account to make sure it is active. If it is not active or has any problems, then you need to contact the moderator team for assistance. The moderator team can be reached via private message using smartforms which is initiated by clicking on the ? on the lower right corner of the webpage or try using this link. The guided process will facilitate documentation of the issue or concern and the required resolution which will be submitted to the moderator team. Refer to this announcement link for additional details on smartforms and the ticketing system for moderator team interactions. If use of smartform brings no joy, then use the following direct link to private message the moderator team. Refer to the following knowledge base article for additional information on the moderator team.
